About Us Alternative Media Forum:
Alternative media Forum is a media (online magazine) which provide alternative information to the mainstream media in a given context, whether the mainstream media are commercial, publicly supported, or government-owned. Alternative media differ from mainstream media as it brings to light non covered news along one or more of the following dimensions: their content, aesthetic, modes of production, modes of distribution, and audience relations.
Several different categories of media may fall under the heading of alternative media. These include, but are not limited to, radical media, dissident and social movement media, ethnic/racial media, indigenous media, community media, subcultural media, student media, and avant-garde media. Each of these categories highlights the perceived shortcomings of dominant media to serve particular audiences, aims and interests, and attempts to overcome these shortcomings through their own media.
We are alternative media because the term "alternative" has connotations of self-marginalization, some media outlets now prefer the term "independent" over "alternative".
A group of journalists has sponsored this Alternative Media Forum.
