Philosophy, methodology, and bias

LeftTimes is led and curated by Yoshi Tryba. I am a product manager working in education technology. I fervently believe in the power of learning and knowledge to transform the world.

I first created LeftTimes in 2017 in response to three trends:

  1. a lack of investigative journalism and progressive op-eds in mainstream media

  2. a blossoming of independent, niche publications (increasingly in the 2020's on Substack)

  3. the tendency of social media algorithms to produce information bubbles filled with click-bait rather than informative content from mixed perspectives.

LeftTimes is intended to augment a mainstream news diet (NYT, FT, WaPo, WSJ, etc.) with in-depth analyses, investigative journalism, editorials, and research from a breadth of perspectives.

Ideologically, I see green social liberalism as the socioeconomic system upon which the next (r)evolutions of society must be built. This perspective is reflected in the distribution of publications included - being predominantly liberal, progressive, and social democratic - with a smattering of libertarian, democratic socialist, and neoliberal sources.
