Eldiario.es is a Spanish independent online news site that focuses on politics and economy. Its goal is to help citizens analyse and understand a complex reality through a rigorous and honest journalism. It defends freedom, social justice, human rights and a more transparent and open democracy. The independence of eldiario.es is based on the fact that more that 50% of the company is owned by journalists and other employees that work in its newsroom. Because of that, it is not tied to the interests of any corporate group. It was founded in 2012 in Madrid and it also has local editions for other Spanish regions.
