Haiti Liberte Inks Joint Operating Agreement with Haitian Times

Haiti Liberté, Haiti's widest-circulation weekly newspaper, has signed a Joint Operating Agreement with the Haitian Times in an effort to cut advertising and operating costs. The global economic collapse plus readers' migration to online editions of major newspapers has affected circulation and subscription sales negatively. The resulting revenue decrease has forced the two newspaper publishers to join forces in order to keep their publications afloat and thriving.


Haiti Liberté, a progressive publication, targets news reporting and current events in the Caribbean and South America. Its international coverage includes momentous social- change movements and astute political commentary. Employing a stable of prestigious and risk-taking investigative reporters, the Port-au-Prince- and Brooklyn-based paper offers a perspective of its own country's place in the context of world affairs.

In the past year, Haiti Liberté has enhanced its international appeal with coverage of unprecedented access to foreign policy secrets. In collaboration with The Nation, the newspaper published several articles revealing information contained in Haiti/U.S. foreign policy documents passing between the two nations. The confidential documents became available to Haiti Liberté through Wikileaks, which freely supplied the intercepted communications to the paper.

Although Haiti Liberté and Haitian Times will share printing presses and publish for the same distribution outlets, their editorial content will remain separate. Haiti Liberté's print-distribution issues are put out on Wednesdays in Haiti, while its online subscriptions are made available to the Haitian Diaspora around the world. It publishes in three languages, French, Créole, and English.
