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

 


Paul Craig Roberts

 

"You can't believe a word the American media says. If they say anything correct, it's just an accident."

Paul Craig Roberts, 2008

 


Sami Ramadani / Phyllis Bennis / Larry Beinhart / Renee Parsons

 

"Over 45% of Americans get their news from Facebook and 25% from Google. This has put these two oligarch corporations in the position of gatekeepers to what news people are allowed to see. By abusing their monopoly powers they and their owners have become fabulously rich as they cannibalize on all the traditional media corporations and other online platforms in all forms of media content."

Jon Hellevig, 2019

 


Eric Toussant / Philip Weiss / Ian Pye

 

"The major function of secrecy in Washington is to keep the U.S. people from knowing what the nation's leaders are doing."

John Stockwell, former CIA official

 


Paul Antonopoulos / Robert Dodge / Marko Marjanovic / Christopher Brauchli

 

"Reporters might not always be consciously aware of all the pro-establishment guidelines they're expected to follow in order to advance their careers, but they know how the reporters who've ascended to the top of the media ladder conduct themselves, and they see how the journalists who win the accolades behave. With the help of editors and peers you quickly learn where all the third rails and sacred cows are, and when to shut your mouth about the elephant in the room."

Caitlin Johnstone, 2018

 


Marjorie Cohn / Alex Christoforou / Patrick Martin

 

"The CIA is using Facebook, Twitter, Google and other social media to spy on people."

Michel Chossudovsky, 2017


Serban Enache / Rebecca Gordon / Steven Sahiounie

 

"Corporations hold a near monopoly on all electronic and printed sources of information. A few media giants control nearly everything we read, see, and hear."

Chris Hedges, 2009

 

"Bill Kristol and Thomas Friedman, have been rewarded for their treachery to America by the New York Times, which pays these men, who have never been right about anything, to pontificate from columns on its pages."

Paul Craig Roberts, 2008

 

"In many respects, the Fourth Estate has become the fifth column of democracy, colluding with the powers that be in a culture of deception that subverts the thing most necessary to freedom, and that is the truth"

Bill Moyers
