Concerned about “fake” or falsified news? We are too. Try critical thinking. When you see “lefties” in media defending “righties” and vice versa, you know something good is going down! We also highly recommend reading a variety of more honest independent folks (across the spectrum) who do not demand that you worship “their truth”? Here ya go! Send us your own in the comments section.
We recommend you add these to your reading lists:
Consortium News — the first investigative journalism on the net, founded by the guys who broke the Iran-Contra scandal in the 1980s and who came from and still work in “mainstream media” – with honesty and intellect galore.
Anti-War.com — “This site is devoted to the cause of non-interventionism and is read by libertarians, pacifists, leftists, “greens,” and independents alike, as well as many on the Right who agree with our opposition to imperialism.” Justin Raimondo, a Murray Rothbard libertarian, does a great job tracking this most important issue that involves the Presidency and highest levels of the U.S. government. Raimondo initially supported Trump but withdrew support stating that Trump could not be trusted.
David Stockman’s Contra-Corner: Get to know the brilliant and bombastic former Director of the Office of Management and Budget under Reagan, who describes his blog as, “the only place where mainstream delusions and cant about the Warfare State, the Bailout State, Bubble Finance and Beltway Banditry are ripped, refuted and rebuked.” Note: You do have to subscribe to get the full monty, but you’ll also get Stockman’s trading tips and more. Stockman supported Trump for some illuminating reasons.
Charles Hughes Smith: A great independent thinker who deep dives into the “deep state” that is doing great harm to our country’s economic and security well-being.
ZeroHedge.com: a little doomsdayish, but who isn’t having come off of Wall Street (their names are fictitious). Moreover, if you don’t feel that way about the peril of the continuation of debt growth to keep our economy going, you’re not paying attention.
TheIntercept.com: Glenn Greenwald, Edward Snowden’s attorney, perhaps it’s most famous writer and attorney has called the mainstream media on fake news with brilliance and finesse.
Grits for Breakfast: Scott Henson is an ace researcher, writer and policy guy on civil liberties and criminal justice in Texas. He also recently founded Just Liberty, a 501c4 organization that is pushing for common sense and very needed reforms winding their way through the sausage maker, otherwise known as the Texas legislature.
Your Local Press: Though some local media are owned by political operatives (therefore, we urge you to get to know who owns you local media) by and large we encourage you to subscribe to your local paper(s) and to contribute through their letters to the editor and their opinion pages. Though many people are reading their news online, in rural communities, newspapers you can hold in your hand still play an important role.
