With the recent proliferation of TV, Radio and Newspapers in the country, the expectation was that the overall role, reach and relevance of media would have also expanded much beyond what it is now. Also, the range of coverage of the news media should have expanded beyond metro cities. However,there is hardly any change in both the respects. This was because the competition within and across the media has been for the same sections of people, the one’s having deeper pockets. Despite proliferation of media, increased competitiveness and run up for exclusivity, the choice in the content package to readers and viewers is neither inclusive nor distinct, this is where All Rights take the opportunity to keep pace with the public demand for independent news and analysis.
All Rights is a monthly news magazine and an online community which seeks to develop an alternate model of journalism to confront the failures of corporate media. Since the very inception of All Rights, our objective is to inspire public action and advocacy on the issues of Environment, Human Rights and Civil Liberties, Social Justice, Media, Health Care, Education and more. Our aim is to provide content to readers, to keep audience well-informed and engaged, helping them to navigate a culture of information overload and providing an alternative to the commercial media onslaught.
The attempt is to highlight grassroots success stories and inspirationalnarratives alongwith hard-hitting critiques of policies, investigative reports and expert analysis. We emphasize on workable solutions to persistent social problems. Our editorial blend emphasizes on commitment to fairness, equality and community stewardship, thus establishing connections across generational and ethnical lines. With opportunities to make change, through specific campaigns, signing petitions, or by learning about the grassroots efforts of groups engaged in the work the idea funnel community’s energy into change.
