About Us

What is The Commoner?

The Commoner is a non-profit, non-partisan news outlet dedicated to reflecting the opinions of the common people. Indeed, the elite in the global media uses big money and political polarization to drown out the voices of the average person. The Commoner serves as a platform for these voices by focusing on rigorous reporting and compassionate dialogue that transcends partisan ties and media bias.

We discuss political, economic, and social issues in a respectful and open-minded manner. Additionally, we believe that empowering the “commoner” within the media will lead to a more democratic and equal society. We also hope that reflecting a diversity of opinions will help to promote empathy and understanding – the building blocks of a more inclusive global community. Thus, we pride ourselves on the diversity of our team of volunteers. Our volunteers come from a wide spectrum of socio-economic and ideological backgrounds because we believe that partisanship stifles dialogue.
