Dear FO° Reader,

Fair Observer is a media outlet that operates independently and dares to challenge established beliefs, raising doubts about apparent certitudes, and lazy patterns of thought. We look at the world through multiple prisms. We hold the belief that it is not enough to look at the world through a single lens—two is better, but many is best, because so much can go unnoticed even in a two-sided debate. As the proverb says, “In the multitude of counselors there is safety.”

As most people now know, the layout and design of a website matter. To make your experience on Fair Observer even better, a new website design is debuting any moment!

This new design is also an expression of our mission and values. We believe in showcasing a diverse range of perspectives. Therefore, we have a new section showcasing authors. We have taken the time to carefully reorganize the menu on the homepage, allowing you to easily find articles on the issues that matter most to you. We have also put our videos, podcasts, multimedia and publications center stage. As Steve Jobs once said, “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”

Of course, there will be teething troubles on our new website. We are relying on you for feedback. Let us know what works and what does not.

From bustling India, languorous France and merrie England, we bid you adieu for now.

Our warmest regards,

Claire, Peter and Atul
Fair Observer Editorial Board.

We are an independent nonprofit organization. We do not have a paywall or ads. We believe news must be free for everyone from Detroit to Dakar.

We rely on your support for our independence, diversity and quality.

For more than 10 years, Fair Observer has been free, fair and independent. No billionaire owns us, no advertisers control us. We are a reader-supported nonprofit. Unlike many other publications, we keep our content free for readers regardless of where they live or whether they can afford to pay. We have no paywalls and no ads.

In the post-truth era of fake news, echo chambers and filter bubbles, we publish a plurality of perspectives from around the world. Anyone can publish with us, but everyone goes through a rigorous editorial process. So, you get fact-checked, well-reasoned content instead of noise.

We publish 2,500+ voices from 90+ countries. We also conduct education and training programs on subjects ranging from digital media and journalism to writing and critical thinking. This doesn’t come cheap. Servers, editors, trainers and web developers cost money.
Please consider supporting us on a regular basis as a recurring donor or a sustaining member.
