You’d be mad not to keep it alive.
The Bristol Cable is a member-owned investigative media outlet, free from corporate backers or ad-driven revenue.
Together, we hold power to account through groundbreaking investigations, campaigns for change, and amplifying marginalised voices. Without independent, investigative media, we lose truth, integrity and diverse perspectives.
The future of independent, hard-hitting media is in your hands. If you are anti-corporates, anti-oligarchs and anti-bulls#!t, then it’s time to back The Cable – the media outlet that dares to challenge, inform, and inspire, for a better, fairer future. Find out more about us.
#BackThe Cable today.

No matter what you pay we operate a one member, one vote policy. We recommend one hour’s wages for full time employees.
Paying annually if you can, rather than monthly, also improves the Cable’s sustainability.
If you’re a high earner, consider giving more on behalf of those who can’t.
69% of our budget goes toward paying our staff a living wage (nice). Our budget is currently £375,000/yr (£7,200/wk) which, to produce quality journalism, is incredibly thrifty! We hope to increase it.
Here are some examples:
You’ll not only be funding quality local journalism, but also forging a new, sustainable business model for local journalism. Locals don’t have the same membership pool to reach out to as nationals do, so we ask those who can contribute more to do so.
