Renegade Inc

Renegade Inc, a new Media Company founded out of London, have republished a piece I wrote recently on the 'Russian Hack' story:

Renegade was co-founded by Megan and Ross Ashcroft, the people who produced the documentary 'Four Horsemen', and is edited by Claire Connelly, an award winning Australian freelance journalist.

This is how Renegade describes its editorial policy:

"Renegade Inc. examines everything we got wrong about the economy, policy, finance, business, tech & culture that led us to this god awful moment in history and where we go from here. The site is designed to throw down the gauntlet in terms of how we talk about and report on the economy, finance, business, tech, policy and culture. Often these categories are poorly reported on. We hope to be the new standard against which other reporting is measured. 

Renegade is an information service first, not a news website. We believe chasing the news cycle is a losing battle that compromises journalism. Our editorial ethos is to be best not first (quickest). We are here to workshop stories with journalists and experts that have a longer shelf life and with greater research and public interest values under-pinning them. Reporting that is narrow and deep not shallow and wide"

More power to their elbow...

For anyone who hasn't seen 'Four Horsemen':

"As the global economy veers from crisis to catastrophe, people have finally had enough. Billions are denied effective access to an economy that has been hijacked by vested interests.

The Four Horsemen is our independent feature documentary which lifts the lid on how the world really works.It is a film that questions the systems we’ve created – and suggests ways to reform them.

We understood that global mega-trends are converging at a time when governments, organised religion and mainstream economists have stalled. Understanding that we will never return to ‘business as usual’ we found 23 thinkers and crafted a story explaining how we can get out of the current situation"

The 23 thinkers include Noam Chomsky; the film was described by 'Total Film' as 'It's Inside Job with bells on'.
