Do you agree? Civil asset forfeiture is an unjust practice that has no place in a society that cherishes due process & private property http://bit.ly/1BmEu8E

Story
Tagline
In a true democracy, independent non-partisan journalism is necessary in educating citizens, who can then vote based upon well vetted knowledge.
Introduction

MintPress News is an independent, non-partisan journalism start-up providing issue-based reporting, in-depth investigations and thoughtful analysis on the most pressing topics facing our nation. We offer coverage of national politics and policy, civil liberties, the war on drugs, foreign affairs, energy and the environment through the lens of social justice and human rights.

A fresh approach in a headline-driven industry, our mission is to go beyond answering the “who, what, when, where and why” in our reporting keeping the stories that really matter grounded in social justice while empowering our readers.

We’re a team of editors, writers, reporters, national and international correspondents and contributors based across the United States and the world. Our masthead includes veteran journalists, war correspondents, grassroots leaders, political analysts and world renowned authors and academics.

We believe that news media has a social obligation in keeping people informed on subjects that directly and indirectly influence people now and in the future, while rigorously discussing policies to drive us in a better direction as a true democracy.

The journey to start MintPress began late 2011 and we officially went live February 2013.
