TRUTH-TELLERS

 

"Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct.
Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time.
If you're right and you know it, speak your mind.
Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth."

Mahatma Gandhi

INDEPENDENT VOICES COMMITTED TO THE TRUTH

"After working in some one hundred and fifty countries, in all the continents, I have finally come to the absolutely clear conclusion: there is no part of the world as brainwashed, programmed and indoctrinated, as are both Europe and North America."

Andre Vltchek, 2014

"Today we have the Internet and a new generation of documentary film makers who, together, provide the information, opinions and research that the media, the universities, and the think tanks cannot provide. These sources are our last best hope."

Paul Craig Roberts, 2008

 


Graham Peebles / Christopher Black / Rodrique Tremblay / Nino Pagliccia

 

"If you only speak to a very narrow slice of people. If you spend most of your time in Washington only speaking to political elites in both parties, or corporate executives and lobbyists, you have a very distorted picture of what public opinion is. A lot of times both political parties will agree on a certain position that a huge number of Americans, often even majorities actually reject. And yet, if all you're doing is talking to people in political power and political and financial elite, you will believe that the range of opinion is much narrower than it actually is. Reporters and media stars and corporate and establishment journalists are so embedded into the establishment as a cultural and sociological matter, that they're out of touch from what public opinion actually is. Polls show that huge numbers of issues and positions that are held by large numbers of Americans are ones that are virtually never heard in our media discussions."

Glenn Greenwald, 2009

 


Binoy Kampmark / Elijah Magnier / Sarah Abed

 

"The media corporations are part of the state's war machinery."

Ziyaad Lunat, 2009

"If you evolve in the mainstream media, you're basically evolving yourself out of a job. So you have a group oriented more toward their careers, people who don't have much of a real commitment to true independent journalism. You have journalists who know longer really care about getting the story correct as much as they care about protecting their flanks in terms of their careers."

Robert Parry, 2009

 


Gary Kohls / Cindy Sheehan / Israel Shahak / Kit Knightly

 

"If people are told the truth, they will reason to the right conclusions - unless they are stupid or ignorant."

George Orwell in his essay "Politics and the English Language"
