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

 


Chris Hedges


"No journalist makes $5 million a year. No journalist has a comfortable, cozy relationship with the powerful. No journalist believes that acting as a conduit, or a stenographer for the powerful is a primary part of his or her calling. Those in power fear and dislike real journalists."

Chris Hedges, 2008

 


Lee Camp / David Barsamian / Eva Bartlett / Ben Norton

 

"US corporate-owned media, in league with government agencies, orchestrate media coverage to demonize states in conflict with corporate plans."

Ralph McGehee, 1999

 


Dr. Joseph Mercola / Greg Grandin / Dean Henderson / Mike Gravel

 

"People have stopped watching network news. And that may be a healthy thing if it betokens skepticism, disbelief and an effort to find out for one's self."

Nicholas von Hoffman

 


William Greider / Coleen Rowley / Laurent Guyenot

 

"Despite its steady loss of credibility, the corporate media continues to operate as the propaganda-arm of the Pentagon."

Mike Whitney

 


Fred Branfman / Gary Null / Andrew Gavin Marshall / Craig Murray

 

"The mainstream media is a conglomerate of collective corporate thought, designed to make you ignorant and unaware of the realities of the world, of the important issues, and to hide in the shadows the sacredly guarded truths of power. Our mainstream media - the large newspapers, radio and TV news stations - are dominated by billion dollar corporations, whose boards of directors reflect the 'who's who' of the corporate, political, and financial elite, with former government officials, industrialists, and bankers controlling the dispersal of information and the perspectives we are given."

Andrew Gavin Marshall

 


Martin Sieff / Leon Hadar / Frank Scott / Susan George

 

"Most newspapers are part of huge conglomerates, and the policy that comes down is that you don't rock any boats. You can't make the government upset because the value of the company is the broadcast licenses, and the government will not renew them, and we can't make our corporate owners mad because they will fire us, and we can't make the advertisers mad or they will pull their advertising. So the media can't say anything that will upset the power structure. And that's what had happened to the press."

Paul Craig Roberts
