About The Public SourceThe Public Source is a Beirut-based independent media organization. It is dedicated to reporting on socioeconomic and environmental crises afflicting Lebanon since the onset of neoliberal governance in the 90s, and providing political commentary on events unfolding since October 17.
They write deeply and critically on vital issues from local perspectives — both in the moment and after the dust has settled — in the service of public interest.
The Public Source is founded on principles of non-hierarchy, voluntary and temporary association, and mutual aid. Their organizational structure is core to their vision of setting a model for local and independent accountability journalism.
