Non-profit journalism site launches in Australia: The Global Mail

Non-profit journalism site launches in Australia: The Global Mail

The Global Mail, a non-profit news site that aims to "deliver original, fearless, independent journalism", has launched in Australia this morning, reports Journalism.co.uk.

The Global Mail is funded by philanthropist Graeme Wood, founder of the accommodation website wotif.com. Wood has donated over $15 million to the new publication, which should be enough to support the site through its first 5 years, says editor-in-chief Monica Attard.

Attard, a former broadcast journalist for ABC, said in an interview with The Australian that there will be a separation between the site's benefactor and its editorial content. "Graeme is chairperson of The Global Mail board. He has no editorial input whatsoever," she asserts.
