MintPress News: Pushing Back Against Atrocity Propaganda

While corporate mainstream media gave Israel the cover to commit genocide in Gaza, MintPress has been at the forefront of challenging atrocity propaganda and naming the names of those who profit from this massacre. For this, we have been targeted financially and algorithmically.

I want to invite you to the fight against media manipulation and censorship to help us break through the propaganda.

For nearly six months, we’ve witnessed Israel openly commit genocide in Gaza while it was livestreamed right on our smartphones.

For nearly six months, we’ve witnessed mainstream media outlets like The New York Times, CNN, and other Western mainstream media organizations provide the cover for Israel’s blatant war crimes – crimes that were committed using our taxpayer money.

They’ve peddled unverified stories of atrocity propaganda – handed to them directly by the Israeli government, justifying Israel’s war that has claimed the lives of over 30,000 people.

But in these dark times of manipulation and gaslighting, it falls upon us – independent journalists and media outlets – to break through the fog of war. That’s why MintPress has become a target, financially and algorithmically, to silence our decades-long investigative reporting exposing the war profiteers.

We invite you to support us by becoming a member of our Patreon, which costs $10 per month and helps us continue our watchdog reporting.

We want to ensure our investigative journalism is able to reach the public far and wide for free and accessible without a paywall, but we can’t do that without your financial support.

MintPress was among the first to question the official narrative of October 7, revealing how an Israeli Apache helicopter killed Israelis. We’ve conducted numerous investigations into conflicts of interest among authors and media commentators within corporate media that have direct ties to think tanks, lobby groups and weapon manufacturers that directly profit from this war. And we have been at the forefront of exposing how Big Tech works with the national security state, think tanks and lobby groups funded by Israel – that work to stifle free speech and control what we see in our newsfeeds.

Now, MintPress is on the ground in Yemen, providing exclusive interviews with officials directly from the Red Sea and groundbreaking reporting of the humanitarian crisis there as the U.S. continues to bomb the poorest country in the Middle East.

However, our efforts have not gone unnoticed. MintPress was banned from TikTok and PayPal in the past year alone, and our balance was seized. After that, GoFundMe banned us from their platform, taking down two of our fundraisers. Our journalists have been detained, surveilled, and targeted by national security agencies and special interest groups, including directly by the Israel lobby.

But we wear this as a badge of honor. This is just a glimpse of the challenges we’ve faced as an independent outlet holding the military class accountable, as every journalistic endeavor should.

Journalism is under attack, and we’re asking for your support to sustain our watchdog journalism.

While Big Tech attempts to erase our journalism algorithmically, we’re ramping up efforts to circumvent censorship and provide hard-hitting reporting that empowers the people. We need your financial support to continue this mission and keep investigative journalism free and accessible without a paywall.

We’ve launched our annual membership drive on Patreon, and we urge you to join us in the fight against the war machine. You can also become a member directly on our website and donate to MintPress there as well.


Our History

MintPress is among the few remaining independent investigative news outlets in the United States, featuring leading journalists and activists. Our team includes investigative journalist Alan MacLeod, whose work has exposed the deep ties between NATO, weapons manufacturers, and Big Tech.

Rapper and activist Lowkey hosts “The Watchdog” podcast, uncovering the Israel lobby’s surveillance tactics. Investigative journalist Kit Klarenberg explores the role of intelligence services in shaping policies across NATO nations.

Our Palestine correspondent, Jessica Buxbaum, has exposed Israel’s collaboration with Big Tech to surveil Palestinian resistance.

We regularly feature commentary by Dr. Ramzy Baroud and Miko Peled and work with internationally renowned cartoonist Carlos Latuff.

As for myself, Mn​​ar Adley, founder and director of MintPress News, I established MintPress over a decade ago to revive the fourth estate in a post-9/11 world dominated by the military-industrial complex. Having lived under Israeli occupation as a Palestinian-American teen, I witnessed the media’s complicity in whitewashing Israel’s atrocities. Corporate media act as PR for weapons manufacturers, justifying military adventurism that fuels the war economy.

MintPress was born out of the need to hold the ruling class and military accountable, amplifying voices silenced by mainstream media.

We’ve been targeted for our commitment to truth, and we need your support to continue our exclusive coverage. Join us in the fight for independent journalism and accountability.
