Truthout seems to be a leftist organization masquerading as an "unbiased" alternative news source. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Virtually everything I've read on their web site indicates that it is part of the Socialist Progressive (Marxists) philosophy movement.

Truthout is an organization which tells a side of the story not often represented in mainstream news. It keeps me informed by having intelligent, incisive articles and real investigative journalism to expose facts and stories which help expose wrongdoing and promote solutions; in short, this news source helps to make democracy and human rights flourish.
I am very grateful for its existence.

Ensure that with every article, there are links and opportunities to get involved with the positive change surrounding the issue/issues being discussed. News media is the eyes and ears of democracy...and democracy must not be represented as a spectator sport.

However much we may think we enjoy or believe in the Brian Williams-type news, it's just not the real deal. It's all made for TV with all the requisite sound bites/visuals, requires little brain use and can't possibly be thorough due to the MASSIVE amount of advertising (read: MONEY) required. I've been quite impressed with TruthOut and have passed it on and on. Much of what TruthOut provides us will not be seen nor heard on the Nightly News, unfortunate as it is. Perhaps soon...

TRUTHOUT is great. It proves all the news you should now but the main stream media is not reporting. Their articles are must reads. Their contributing writers have become household names. Because of TRUTHOUT, I seek them out on other blog sites, look forward to seeing them being interviewed by the likes of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, and look for their books to read. The truth will set you free (and get you thinking) thanks to TRUTHOUT.

In a vacuum of actual journalism, Truthout shines as david Vs the goliath of disinformation, lies and distractions.

Truthout is a great source of fantasy writing.....A bullhorn for the left, and a great enemy of the Israeli State....The greatest thing htis organisation could do to voice its opinion would be to gather the entire staff together at a earth day celebration, or maybe a granola festival and stage a huge group self-immolation.......I would be a great supporter of them then....

Truthout is the rarest of news outlets. It provides a comprehensive view of the world without resorting to the crippling conventional wisdom offered by other 'reliable' sources.

Truthout lives up to its name. It gets the truth out about national and international politics and events.

America's current corporate media subsists by ratings and commercial appeal. They produce propaganda and entertainment. Most Americans are ill informed about anything political and accept commercial media as factual.

Along with being biased towards the profitable, American media refuses to air selected stories that are contrary to their propaganda.

Not so with Truthout. They report news - good and bad. They speak truth to power. They deserve your support.

If I could get only one source of current events information, it would be TruthOut. I find the information objective and the editorial style challenging. As critical thinking is becoming a lost skill, Americans need a source of international news that is truthful; that does not have a hidden agenda. As a country, ignorance is our greatest enemy.

Other American news sources have corporate support and corporate slant. Neither network nor cable news in this country delivers unbiased reporting. Opinions are purported to be more newsworthy than facts.

Truthout fills this void.

Without Truthout I would be deaf and blind. Although I have been subscribed to their news service for only a few weeks, I have come to appreciate T's high standard of journalism, offering fair balanced reporting, in stark contrast to mainstream media. I wish only that T would offer similar quality journalism on Canadian matters.
