FINDING THE REAL NEWS
The following is a list of sites I like to check out when I am trying to find out what the hell is going on in the world
(since the network news companies cannot be trusted to do their F**KING job)
Included in this list are some leading “conspiracy theorists” that many people don’t consider to be credible sources for reasons that I think are totally invalid. Every news source has a bias. I try to read as broadly as I can because we are living with so much misinformation. In my view, you can’t really TRUST any of it... you just have to start building your own perspective and interpretation. The real question becomes “Why aren’t these stories getting covered in the mainstream press?”
These are just some sites that I have found useful, I’m no expert and if you know any other good sources please do send me the links…this list will likely get a lot larger over time.
Amy Goodman and her gang don’t cover EVERYTHING …(they don’t talk much about the 9-11 Truth movement for example) but I think they are doing the best they can considering they have a pretty high profile in the states and they would get shut down in a big way if they went too radical.
This site is a list of international headlines compiled with a conservative American slant, a good place to get a feel for what American news is buzzing about in general at any given time…
These guys are right-wing conspiratcists, but quite thorough. You’ll find a lot of spooky police/military abuse of power stories that you won’t find covered – and it sure ain’t because they aren’t true stories.
The BBC is a leader in international mainstream news.
These guys cover international news from the Middle Eastern perspective… and I think it can be argued that they are the shining light of democracy in much of the Muslim world. Bush and Blair wanted to bomb them (which might make them our friends?)
Alex Jones is most likely a modern hero. This guy has been on the air speaking truth to power basically EVERY DAY since sometime in the mid-90′s. Sometimes I find it frightening to listen, but I think that’s a good thing.
