Video: BUSTED! Media Crimes Exposed

Contents show

Note that sources listed here are constantly being added and removed.

Having learned long ago that the (legacy) mainstream "news" media cannot be trusted, i turned to the web and the alternative news realm to find out what's really going on in the world. Over the course of a dozen years or more, i have evaluated and curated many alternative news sources which i found to be generally reputable.

Though i believe the following list is comprised of generally trustworthy sources, keep in mind that all of them get things wrong on occasion, sometimes very wrong. For example many organizations have contributing writers and journalists and while the majority of them may be produce creditable work, others sometimes produce complete garbage. Ultimately it is up to you to research what you read and decide for yourself what is accurate.

Regarding YouTube, i would highly suggest subscribing to the authors feed(s) on alternative video platforms if any are available. Because of the ongoing censorship, purging, de-ranking and de-listing at sites like YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc., more and more people are migrating to platforms which are more respective of free speech including as BitChute, Rumble, Odysee, Gab TV, Brighteon, DTube and others where their work is less likely to be censored. Even if they have a YouTube channel, they may not post all of their content there due to the risk of having their channel deleted and their account terminated.

The systemic problem of censorship also applies to all mainstream social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Reddit and others. For alternatives to the 'Big Tech' platforms, see: Social media - Tracking, profiling, censorship and privacy respecting alternatives.
