The internet is rife with recycled content, click bait articles, misinformation campaigns, and easy-to-digest media that requires little, if any, critical thought. The reality is people tend to gorge on punchy headlines and quick reads, while bookmarking the investigative, long reads for a rainy day.

There has been a steady decline in media outlets (even the seemingly independent, progressive ones) reporting independent content with rigour and integrity. The fear of giving offence has surpassed the need to challenge hegemonic narratives and groupthink.

Growing up Alienated emerged as a pushback to these milquetoast media outlets.
