At Raj Meister, we report what the Mainstream Media/ Western Media choose not to headline. We take a people-first approach in everything we report—be it news, politics or lifestyle and entertainment— we class this sort of media as Alternative Media, where we cover real stories about real life.  Regardless of who you are, where you live or what you believe, you can count on Raj Meister to help you navigate what’s happening around the world that you may not even know about, but may affect you.  Here at Raj Meister we do consider the needs, desires and inquisitiveness of our readers in all of our journalism.  If something matters to our readers, it matters to us.

Here at Raj Meister we:

  • Cover a diverse range of topics and different perspectives in a sincere, relatable voice;
  • Are truly both global and local, with locally staffed free-lancers and around the world;
  • Include a diversity of voices that are not always part of the conversation.

We believe in diversity – in who we are, how we tell our stories, and among the people we write for – is critical to our mission.  We aim to write for, and not just about, those left out of traditional power structures; to approach stories inclusively; and to serve a diverse audience with stories that matter to them.


Raj Meister endeavours to be accurate in its reporting, transparent and thorough in its sourcing, and fair and independent in its analysis.  We aim to endeavour, authenticate and substantiate the material via multiple sources whenever possible.  We will grant anonymity to sources, so they can provide information in the public interest without putting themselves at risk; however, Raj Meister does not grant anonymity to sources, so they can avoid accountability for their opinions. 

We always aim to correct any misstatements in a timely manner, with a correction note appended to the bottom of an article to indicate what has been fixed and how.  More prominent notices may be included for more egregious errors.  Raj Meister will only retract an article after extensive review by a senior editor has found fundamental flaws in the reporting, and always with an editor’s note.
