PoliticsMeansPolitics.com is a weekly politics and current affairs magazine with one clear objective: Fighting the fake stories out there with real ones.
Our online magazine was created on 30 September 2016, just a few weeks after the British referendum on the EU membership and a couple of months before the election of Donald Trump at the White House.
What's in the name: Our magazine's name, PoliticsMeansPolitics.com (PMP), comes from the days when the then-newly appointed British Prime Minister Theresa May kept repeating in the media "Brexit means Brexit", after the EU Referendum.
Why PoliticsMeansPolitics.com exists: We are a weekly politics and current affairs magazine with one clear objective: Fighting the fake stories out there with real ones.
Our slogan: "The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men."
Our mission: To inform and educate to make a social impact. After Brexit and Trump, it is now time to fight back and stand up for truth and facts, or our ability to make informed decisions will be forever compromised.
We have created PMP, a new platform for citizen response, because, unlike other media who focus on superficial news, irrelevant stories, fake news and alternative facts, we believe that some stories out there MUST be told.
We believe that PMP should not provide its readers with stories they 'want' to read, but with stories they 'need' to read to understand the world they live in.
Where our magazine stands politically: We believe in social equality, equal opportunity, the promotion of individual abilities and talents, social responsibility, universal healthcare, workers rights, entrepreneurship, fair market competition, consumer rights, human rights, women's rights, LGBTQ rights, equal pay, access to education and culture for all, the prohibition of child labour, the fight against racism and antisemitism, and in the fight against global warming.
Our audience: We have a growing number of followers and, on average, tens of thousands of readers choose to read our articles every day. Our magazine has received over 502k views in the last quarter all pages combined. We also currently have over 5k registered readers to our weekly Newsletter. Although our target audience is English speaking readers mainly located in the United States, Britain, Canada and Australia, we also have readers in many other countries in the world, simply because the issues raised in our magazine are global and affect people everywhere on the planet.
WHY BECOMING A SUPPORTER NOW?
More and more readers follow our magazine every day because they like the content we offer and believe in our quality, independent and fair journalism.
We want to keep this trend growing.
For that reason, we want to keep having a magazine based on trust (with our readers and with our authors) and the knowledge that no story we publish can be dropped because of censorship or political pressure.
To remain independent though is difficult and expensive, as our advertising revenues are too small to help us maintain our growth and we don’t have billionaire owners, nor shareholders who could add capitals in a snap of fingers.
What we have is the understanding of the connections between good, independent, ethical journalism and democracy in a post-Brexit / post-Trump world. Our independent journalism considers the news from a different angle you may feel you can relate to.
So, if you like our work, please show your support. Your contribution to the work of our magazine will be greatly appreciated and guarantee we can continue to bring you great quality and independent articles to fight the fake stories out there… with real ones.
HOW IS THE MONEY BEING USED?
Whilst most of our articles are made freely available to our readers on our online magazine, our Top Stories from our Top Writers are only available to our Supporters.
Because it takes a lot of time to review, edit, get all articles and facts right, part of the money from our supporters goes towards cost-effective admin processes and apps that help us run the magazine's website in the most proficient manner.
Some of the money also goes towards our social media and website work in order to keep our magazine always current and engaging with our readers.
Because we love our writers we want to help them all to continue feeding our magazine with great quality content. Therefore, when possible some of the money will be used in the future to fund our writers as well for the articles they produce.
