Established in June 2010, IA supports quality investigative journalism, as well as citizen journalism and a diversity of voices. We believe Australians are short-changed by the mass media — and so this publication is dedicated to seeking out the truth and informing the public.
Independent Australia believes in a fully and truly independent Australia — a nation that determines its own future, a nation that protects its citizens and its environment. A land that is fair and free.
IA is also opposed to partisan politics and supports Independent politicians. (Read more about this here.)
IA's editorial team possesses a wealth of experience through its senior editorial team, which is made up of founder and managing editor David Donovan, executive editor Michelle Pini, digital editor Dan Jensen and assistant editor Nicholas Bugeja.
Also on the editorial team, contributing hugely to IA's success, are investigations editor Ross Jones, contributing editor-at-large Tess Lawrence, media editor Dr Lee Duffileld, history editor Dr Glenn Davies and entertainment editor John Turnbull.
IA also features regular columns from outstanding journalists, political commentators and cartoonists, including Alan Austin, Belinda Jones, Dr Binoy Kampmark, David Ritter, Dr Jennifer Wilson, Professor John Quiggin, John Wren, Mark David, Noely Neate, Paul Budde and Sue Arnold.
Independent Australia is a member of the Australian Press Council.
