about us

THE Frontliner is founded by independent journalist and war correspondent Vedat Xhymshiti

We believe that without debate, without criticism, no administration institution and no country can succeed and no “republic” can survive. That is why the Athenian lawmaker Solon, decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why the freedom of the press must be protected by the Constitution as it is protected in the United States by the First Amendment.

We believe that the freedom of the press is not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and the sentimental, not to simply “give the public what it wants” – but to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold, educate, and sometimes even anger the public opinion. This means greater coverage and analysis of international news for it is no longer far away and foreign, but close at hand and local. It means greater attention to improved understanding of the news, as well as improved transmission. It means finally, that government at all levels, must meet its obligation to provide people with the fullest possible information outside the narrowest limits of national security. And so it is to the printing press, to the recorder of the man’s deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier of his news that we look for strength and assistance. We are confident that with the help of the press, man will be what he was born to be: free and independent.

Inspired by John F. Kennedy.

We are a team of independent professionals, specialising in media, history of arts and culture, political and social science. Our concept aims to know, learn, study and recognise the fact of truth. Our passion, is to witness, document and report, give voice to the voiceless, bear witness to the innocent. Using photography and other multimedia tools, we shed light over the stories that need to be told!

We believe in the intelligence of our viewers/readers, our mission is to deliver unbiased facts, because we want you to have your own opinion.

THE Frontliner is a not-for-profit media Organisation, standing on earth and registered nowhere. Our goal is to bring important news and information to the public, our focus is Human Rights and Press Freedom. We aim to provide an innovative, secure and anonymous way for sources to leak information to our journalists. One of our most important activities is to publish original source material alongside our news stories so readers and historians alike can see evidence of the truth.

We will not just report the story, we will live the story and analyse it in depth by facing facts and files of the human history development, we go beyond the borders across the globe and seat back with our editors, tailing the stories letter-by-a-letter, verifying, questioning and unveiling the answers of the political developments, supported by facts and undisputable content for a broader and national serious readership.

This is a virtual place where also other Independent Professionals, that are willing to share their political and philosophical questions and interpretations towards social developments of human society, may be found here.
