theAnalysis.news was founded by Paul Jay and Sharmini Peries. Along with close friends, they created this site to carry on the work of independent, in-depth, uncompromising journalism.


Corporate news has infantilized the national discourse. We need to tell people the whole truth, as best we can, about the urgency of this historical moment.

Corporate news rarely reveals the underlying interests that motivate individuals and classes to act as they do. In fact, they barely recognize that we live in a class society.

We take on important news stories as a way into a deeper examination of the economic, social and political forces that drive important events. Our aim is to reveal the economic relationships that are the foundation of political and social struggle.

We know the world can only be understood in the process of changing it.
