The "Kurir" medium is one of the oldest online media in North Macedonia. Since its beginnings, it has been known to the public as a propaganda medium that publishes content in favor of the center-right VMRO-DPMNE party and attacks on its opponents and competitors. These practices were present to such an extent that the name "Kurir" became synonymous with propagandistic journalism in the Macedonian media scene. The online medium has kept the same political orientation even today, which is mainly expressed through the columns and opinion pieces it publishes. Although the medium did not change the editorial policy, it has changed ownership three times. It was founded by the brother of an official of VMRO-DPMNE, passed into the ownership of the medium's editor, and then Hungarian capital entered it.
