Why we support journalism in exile:
Independent media and journalists are needed most in the very places where they face repression and persecution. Without them, democratic discourse dwindles. And this discourse is the foundation of the freedom of information and expression. When media outlets in exile are able to reach audiences back in their countries of origin, they ensure that independent information remains available where the governments are trying to silence them. As such, the existence of independent media in exile acts as an effective counterweight to propaganda and disinformation.
