Crikey is a stalwart of Australian digital media, publishing critical journalism that probes, pokes and investigates since 2000. Fiercely independent and tireless in its mission to hold power to account and dig where bodies are buried, Crikey subscribers pay for our journalism because it takes them beyond the mainstream media, beyond the clickbait and beyond the predictability of much modern journalism.

Crikey brings the inside word on what’s really going on in politics, government, media, business, the arts and all aspects of public life in Australia, revealing how the powerful operate behind the scenes, and tackling the stories other media can’t or won’t cover.

Most importantly, Crikey is independent and is not part of a media empire.
