A highly popular "alternative" media, which while carrying some progressive news, nevertheless avoids certain subjects, and has nothing much to say about deep politics.

Censorship

It is revealing that DN had nothing to say about 9-11 in 2014, and (as of August 2015) had not reported on the topic since September 2013. It also chooses to air Noam Chomsky's views on the matter, in spite of his claiming not to know much about it.

EventDescription
Open Society FoundationsA NGO operating in more countries than McDonald's. It has the tendency to support politicians (at times through astroturfing) and activists that get branded as "extreme left" as its founder is billionaire and bane of the pound George Soros. This polarizing perspective causes the abnormal influence of the OSF to go somewhat unanswered.
Pacifica FoundationA progressive media foundation, generally anti-war, but also close to official narratives.
The Ford FoundationIn addition to its own billionaire agenda, also known to have been $$$ middleman for covert CIA funding.
