Crikey has been Australia’s edgiest independent digital news and commentary publication since 2000. 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 bring its readers the inside word on what’s really going on in politics, government, media, business, the arts, sport and other aspects of public life in Australia. Crikey reveals how the powerful operate behind the scenes, and tackles the stories insiders are talking about but other media can’t or won’t cover.

Crikey publishes information that might otherwise remain suppressed. It’s a place where people can go — anonymously or not — with information they believe is in the public interest.

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