Megaphone is a new media platform project focusing on news vetting in Lebanon.
The initiative aims to counter the present reality of the Lebanese media landscape and give the mainstream audience (especially the youth) an alternative, more reliable and analytic source of news. EED support will help Megaphone’s team working on a voluntary basis to produce analytical news in the form of weekly reactive posts, monthly in-depth videos with a special highlight on the upcoming parliamentary elections period.
