Mission Statement

Forget the Box is an independent media collective that strives to provide a forum for voices excluded from the mainstream media. In the face of a corporate media landscape, where objectivity is often a thinly veiled cover for bias, we wear our views proudly.

We provide media for the people, by the people.

Statement of Principles

While Forget the Box will never censor or otherwise restrict the publication of articles based on topic alone, we do reserve the right to tailor our content in keeping with our mission statement and the principles of responsible journalism.

Specifically, and to the greatest extent possible, factual inaccuracy in all of our content will be avoided and, when necessary, rectified.

Submissions that are unjustly prejudicial to any social, ethnic, religious, sexual or other identity group will not be published. The section-editors and the editor-in-chief reserve the right to pull any content deemed by them to be inappropriate.
