Our mission

Byline Times does not report the daily news cycle. That’s for others. Our aim is to concentrate on ‘what the papers don’t say’. We will follow the story wherever it goes, without fear or favour. No PR company, advertiser or press baron can influence the stories we choose to cover. Our integrity comes from our editorial independence.

While the newspaper is not politically partisan, it is not neutral and stands against corruption, injustice and the erosion of truth and the rule of law. Accurate information is the lifeblood of a democracy and, although everyone is welcome to their own opinions, facts cannot be debated.

Accuracy also requires us to report our country more fairly. Byline Times believes many communities and regions are misrepresented in the media because they are under-represented. We hope to give a voice to those not provided a platform elsewhere.

Print and digital

Byline Times is a monthly newspaper. We normally go to print in the first two weeks of the month, with printed editions posted out two days after print date. The digital versions are immediately available to subscribers to download from their accounts.

Our team

Byline Times is brought to you by a dedicated team of journalists and contributors – producing independent, fearless, investigative and thought-provoking journalism not found in the established media.

Contact us if you have a pitch or an idea for a story you think we should be investigating.

More From the Byline Family

Byline Times’ sister organisations are the crowdfunding journalism platform; the press corruption site Byline Investigates; the video channel Byline TV; Byline Books and Byline Festival. All are separate entities.

For those who want quicker access to exclusive content, more stories from the US, and more long reads and a more magazine-like feel, we’re proud to launch Byline Supplement on Substack. This is also a way to avoid Elon Musk’s increasingly erratic Twitter, by building a forum for followers of all the Byline brands to meet and talk, and get the stories delivered straight to your inbox. But rest assured, if this is not for you, the highlights of Byline Supplement will also make it into the print edition of Byline Times.

Byline Times is owned by Byline Times Ltd (company number: 11658725).

The Byline brand is a registered trade mark of Byline Media Holdings Ltd.
