Analyst News is a nonprofit, international news organization publishing thoughtful, clear-eyed journalism and critical analysis of current events. In a world where speed and sensation drive the news cycle, we believe going slow can be a virtue. With this approach, we aim to elevate the public conversation and bring neglected voices and stories to the fore.
By rejecting the media frenzy over views and ad dollars, Analyst News adds context, clarity and nuance to today’s discourse. Our reporting cuts through the false binaries, hypocrisies and double standards pervading an increasingly corporate and partisan media landscape.
Instead, we prize absolute justice — a moral standard that demands abandoning personal, national and tribal interests. Our work, which is in pursuit of this vision, is informed by the values of our faith: dignity, equity and truth.
Analyst News began as an editorially-independent journalistic project by the international Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in 2021. While we maintain an affiliation with the organization, Analyst News remains an independent initiative that does not represent the official views of the community. Our volunteer team, led by professional journalists, sets its own editorial strategy and operations.
In 2023, we relaunched our website to focus on in-depth coverage of justice, geopolitics, society, women and religion. Our stories are published under a Creative Commons license and can be republished in accordance with these guidelines.
Our Ethics & Standards
In crafting our ethics policy, Analyst News has incorporated standards from two reputable organizations representing the media industry: the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) and the Independent Monitor for the Press (IMPRESS).
Our journalists abide by the SPJ code for ethical journalism, which includes four principles: seek truth and report it, minimize harm, act independently, and be accountable and transparent. We also adhere to the IMPRESS Standards Code, which offers guidelines on newsgathering and journalistic best practices as they relate to accuracy, attributions and plagiarism, children, discrimination, harassment, justice, privacy, sources, suicide and transparency.
