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 supports independent, non-partisan politics and as a matter of editorial policy, we ensure that our editors are not members of any political party.
IA's editorial team possesses a wealth of experience through its senior editorial team, which is made up of founder and director David Donovan, managing editor Michelle Pini, digital editor Dan Jensen and assistant editors Nicholas Bugeja and Cherie Moselen.
Also on the editorial team, contributing hugely to IA's success, are investigations editor Ross Jones, media editor Dr Lee Duffileld, contributing editor-at-large Tess Lawrence, 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, Dr Binoy Kampmark, David Ritter, Dr Jennifer Wilson, Dr Martin Hirst, Professor John Quiggin, John Wren, Mark David, Noely Neate, Paul Budde, Abul Rizvi, Paul Dutton, Sue Arnold, Peter Wicks, Tarric Brooker and Rhys Muldoon.
