Manifesto

Disclose is poised to become the first non-profit investigative media organisation in France.

Disclose’s founding principle is that information can not be a commodity. Our investigative journalism is entirely independent, without subscription and accessible to the greatest number. Disclose's journalism has one objective: to reveal abuses and hold nancial and political powers to account.

In France audiences show a growing interest for investigative journalism. Yet most of the private media are owned by a small group of industrials, while public broadcasters are suffering drastic budget cuts. They simply don’t have the necessary means or independence to carry out investigations. This has led much of the media to lose the public’s trust. Disclose will rely on philanthropy as a funding model to foster a journalism that serves the public interest.

Taking the form of an association under law 1901, Disclose overcomes the limitations that seeking pro t entails in order to devote itself fully to conducting investigations and distributing them.Disclose supports journalism that is focused on the public interest and enshrined under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen (1948): “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression.”  This includes the right not to be targeted because of one’s opinions nor for seeking, receiving and spreading information and ideas by any means of expression, regardless of borders.
