The Wizarding World’s Alternate voice.
Censorship is the law of the land
We live in a time when when a Ministry of Lies controls all news reporting. It slants and censors news at will. It makes sure the government’s views are the only ones that see the light of day.
The Quibbler is the one outlet brave enough to tell you the truth about what really is happening out there.
Illegal, experimental breeding, unwarranted Auror raids at wizarding establishments, massive Obliviation squads targeting witches and wizards. These are just some of the things we have recently uncovered.
And now the Ministry is secretly working with Muggles to use their “technology” in what they call the “Wizards Unite AR Game App”
The birth of The Quibbler
The Quibbler began as a love project for Xenophilius Lovegood, father of famed Magizoologist Luna Lovegood. He created, edited and published the news outlet from his own home.
He believed there was more magic to our world than we could see, and he endeavoured to share it with the rest of the wizarding world.
As time went by, he began publishing stories other news outlets rejected because they didn’t align with their worldviews.
Although it soon started rising in popularity, it wasn’t until the Harry Potter Special Issue that The Quibbler became famous.
The Ministry and every other news outlet were making their best to discredit Harry Potter and his allegations regarding He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named had returned.
It was then that The Quibbler editor, Xenoplilius Lovegood, decided it was time to hear the story in Harry Potter’s own words. This became The Quibbler’s most famous issue.
To quote Luna Lovegood herself:
“Dad’s reprinting!….I can’t believe it, he says people seem even more interested in this than the Crumple-Horned Snorkacks!“
History repeats itself
We thought the days of massive manipulation were past. However, with the appearance of The Calamity it feels like we are reliving the days of You-Know-Who all over again.
Reports of Ministry cover-ups abund. We have heard the Ministry is working with the Muggle government aligning with them to help them get through The Calamity instead of taking care of its own citizens.
Out of nearly a hundred traces of magic officially detected in Britain, the Ministry has only shared two, the out-of-control Snitch and the riderless Nimbus 2000.
Moreover, there has still been no official statement in regards to the Ministry’s New Year’s Eve Ball catastrophe.
And we still know nothing about how The Calamity is affecting other wizarding areas outside of Britain, despite the many reported meetings between representatives of the International Statute of Secrecy and the International Magical Cooperation Departments.
The truth is under fire
The Quibbler was labelled a sensationalist news outlet from the first day it went on print. The Ministry and other newspapers accused The Quibbler of printing stories that have been rejected by the established press, typically because they believe it is nonsense.
What these outlets don’t realise is that they are being fed ‘truths’ that play right into the government’s hand. The change must start with us.
