One of the main joys of the internet is its abundance. I've got a blogroll list on this website, but its merely a tiny fragment of the wonderful information sources on the web. So for a links page here are some websites that I think deserve attention, non-mainstream media and in-depth reporting and analysis, plus issues and parts of the world that receive little attention here in the UK. No rehashed corporate press releases passed off as 'news', and no celebrity gossip! You can also subscribe to my Twitter list of News & Analysis sites (240 so far - the internet plays to my completionist tendencies!)

IPS - Inter Press Service - Reporting important news from around the world

Global Post - Independent, original reporting, filling the void in international reporting by mainstream US news organizations

The Intercept - Initially this is a platform to report on the documents previously provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. The long-term aim is to produce 'fearless, adversarial journalism across a wide range of issues' with guaranteed editorial independence. As its created byGlenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Jeremy Scahill I've no doubt The Intercept will achieve this.
