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

 


Michael Parenti

 

"Many things are reported in the news but few are explained. Little is said about how the social order is organized and for what purposes. Instead we are left to see the world as do mainstream pundits, as a scatter of events and personalities propelled by happenstance, circumstance, confused intentions, bungled operations, and individual ambitions - rarely by powerful class interests."

Michael Parenti

 


Douglas Valentine / Arundhati Roy / Mark Weisbrot / John V Walsh

 

"News Corp, Disney, Viacom, Time Warner, CBS and Comcast own 90% of the TV stations, radio stations, movies, magazines and newspapers that Americans rely on for news and entertainment."

Michael Snyder, 2017

 


Naomi Wolf / John Taylor Gatto / Paul Findley / Jim Marrs

 

"By far the most valuable associations, according to CIA officials have been with the New York Times, CBS and Time Inc. Journalists provided a full range of clandestine services - from simple intelligence-gathering to serving as go-betweens with spies in Communist countries."

Carl Bernstein, Rolling Stone, 1977

 


Partick Armstrong / Michael Ruppert / Kevin Zuesse / Joachim Hagopian

 

"It is not at all uncommon to grow to adulthood in the United States, even to graduate from university, and not be seriously exposed to opinions significantly contrary to prevailing myths, and know remarkably little about the exceptionally harmful foreign policy of the government."

William Blum, 2015

 


Gilad Atzmon / Carey McWilliams / Steven Walt / Mickey Huff

 

"The Washington press corps has grown closer and closer to its sources. You find these relationships are so close that reporters don't challenge the subjects of their stories, they just tell you what the government is saying. In other words, they've become stenographers for power and not journalists."

David Barsamian


Martin Berger / Charlie Robinson / John Bellamy Foster

 

" The U.S. news media, including our most respected newspapers like the New York Times, turn a blind eye to U.S. violations of core international law, having no qualms about playing up the violations of adversaries. It would be nearly impossible for the coverage to be more unprincipled."

John Nichols and Robert W. McChesney in their book "Tragedy & Farce"
