Under the motto "fast and different", the "TetovaSot" online medium, managed today by Rami Mislimi, began its work in 2013. An investigative story revealed that "TetovaSot" is the main outlet in the informal media group of a total of four news websites that were used for political propaganda. In addition to "TetovaSot" (tetovasot.com), the group also included bild.mk, indeks.mk and ts.mk.
At the time when this database was prepared, bild.mk was non-functional.
"TetovaSot" and the other media from this group were and are inclined towards the ethnically Albanian ruling party DUI, while being especially critical of the opposition in the Albanian political bloc.
The online medium "TetovaSot" has been publishing content in Albanian for a whole decade, and therefore apart from North Macedonia, the portal is also read in Kosovo and Albania.

"TetovaSot" is issued by the company "TS Group". Established in 2001, it first changed its economic activity twice, and its name three times. It was first established as a IT company with the name "MASTER-COMPUTERS", after which they continued to work as a publisher of internet portals. Then in 2016, it was renamed "Tetovasot-media", and in 2022 it got its current name "TS GROUP".
