Exaro is a website that isn’t afraid to cover stories that have been inadequately covered by the mainstream media
Investigative journalism used to be the guiding force of Britain’s free press. Today, sadly, most titles have ditched this in favour of “celebrity” obsession but one online news source, Exaro, has successfully tipped the balance back towards in-depth investigation and analysis.
Exaro describes itself as “holding power to account” and as “investigat[ing] issues that are important to business in particular and to the public in general, but which are being inadequately covered – or ignored – by the mainstream media”.
Taking its name from the Latin verb “exarare”, Exaro makes reference to “digging up” and “ploughing up” and in their coverage of the historic abuse that has gone on at Westminster and elsewhere, they have shown great courage and resolve.
Run out of Fetter Lane and bankrolled by the millionaire investment fund manager Jerome Booth, Exaro is edited by a former Sunday Business and Sunday Express journalist named Mark Watts and has such people as Nick Brown MP, Lord Carlile, David Hencke and Neville Thurlbeck amongst its contributors. It is a website that we urge all our readers to subscribe to.
