The Centre Star is a response to the pressing need for an analytical, less stereotypical way of addressing Middle Eastern and related African issues in the current media space.
The Centre Star is not organisationally based or aligned, and is totally independent. It is therefore freed up to tackle questions that often get framed by agendas, preconceptions and loaded language.
The Centre Star’s aim is to be critical without being conspiratorial; to be discriminative without being discriminating and to keep the online reading community stimulated on a wide range of topics.
The editor is Shafiq Morton, a South African photo-journalist based in Cape Town.
