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

 


Ramsey Clark

 

"Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed. Everything else is public relations."

George Orwell

 


Adam Hochschild / David Penner / Dean Baker / Olivia Alperstein

"Google search results censor individuals and organization who express opinions about politics and other topics which do not correspond to the globalist agenda that Google peddles. This censoring happens by way of demoting or de-ranking those individuals and organizations so that the search algorithms do not show sources pertaining to them in search results. Political opposition and dissent are increasingly openly being blocked from Google in what amounts to modern day book burnings."

Jon Hellevig, 2019

"Any resemblance to independent reporting disappeared from the American media when the Democratic regime of President Clinton allowed a handful of moguls to concentrate the American media in a few corporate hands. That was the end of American reporting."

Paul Craig Roberts

"If you talk to journalists, they will tell you that they have in some sense, lost the monopoly that they previously exerted on our political discourse. There are alternative voices now. The internet enables people to construct their own platforms and to attract like-minded people."

Glenn Greenwald, 2009

 


Mandy Smithberger / Aaron Kesel / Robert Shetterly / Phil Rokstroh

 

"The most logical explanation for the uniform consensus of support for pro-establishment narratives in the mass media exists because there is a system in place which keeps all mass media reporters lying to us and painting a false picture about what's going on in the world.
This doesn't mean that these news media outlets lie about everything all the time, it means they mostly provide half-truths, distortions and lies by omission whenever it benefits the agendas of the powerful, which is functionally the same as lying all the time.
In this way the powerful have succeeded in controlling the people's narratives about what's happening in their country and their world. This is the system of narrative manipulation we are up against when we try to sow dissident ideas into public consciousness."

Caitlin Johnstone, 2018

 


Julie Hollar / Tom Luongo / Katherine Paul

 

"Television journalism is largely a farce. Celebrity reporters, masquerading as journalists, make millions a year and give a platform to the powerful and the famous so they can spin, equivocate, and lie."

Chris Hedges, 2009

 

"Truth is a belief system, and if we cease to believe in it, it will disappear."

Paul Craig Roberts, 2008

 

"No self-respecting fish would want to be wrapped in a Murdock paper. His goal isn't quality journalism it's vast power, political power."

Chicago columnist Mike Royko
