MintPress News is a left-leaning[1] American online news website founded and edited by Mnar Muhawesh which was launched in January 2012.[2] It covers political, economic, foreign affairs and environmental issues.

Reporting

On August 29, 2013, an unverified MintPress article attributed to Dale Gavlak and Yahya Ababneh said that Syrian rebels and local residents in the Syrian city of Ghouta alleged that rebels were responsible for the chemical weapons attack on August 21.[3] This claim was later verifed by the OPCW whistleblowers, 7 years later in 2020.[4]

In 2015, Mnar Muhawesh claimed that MintPress was opposed to U.S. intervention in foreign wars, claiming "President Obama is President Bush on steroids. Why then, do people in the progressive community suddenly support 'spreading democracy' when it is a Democrat carrying out Republican policies?"[5]

Eva Bartlett, Vanessa Beeley, Max Blumenthal, Miko Peled, Kevin Zeese, Whitney Webb and the cartoonist Carlos Latuff are listed as regular contributors to the website.[6]

MNP frequently partners with the outlets Project Censored, Free Speech TV, Media Roots Radio, ShadowProof, The Grayzone, Truthout, CommonDreams, and Antiwar.com[7]
