From what I've seen, Truthout provides limited "bandwagon" vantage points that endorse popular vantage points without technical expertise. The information provided by this group, with regards to nuclear energy, is very closed minded and I find it unfortunate that very few journalistic agencies actually do research in this day and age. Please reassess your articles on nuclear energy – if it’s done correctly (which has been demonstrated more than not) it is cleaner and more efficient than current technologies. Please access a real source in the scientific community that understands what nuclear energy is.

Truthout is an essential part of my daily routine. The reporting and information provided here are far superior and much more telling of the events happening in our world than anything that can be found in the mainstream media.

TruthOut is one of my main sources for news. I trust their content, agree with their editorial perspective, and frequently repost their articles for my friends and associates.

This website tells a lot of truth, by publishing articles, all in one place, about the events of crucial interest to people everywhere: politics, science (as in Nuclear Power Plants) economics, et al, telling the truth that is disastrously left untold by the public press.

I live in Japan,
and we get the international version of CNN and BBC, and one PBS news program. I hear them all tell lies, and focus on the less-than-necessary including much disaster-entertainment, and present a very right wing slant, including the BBC! And of course the IHT and wire services information in the local English language newspapers is limited, cherry picked and slanted. Truthout has an amazing amount of information, and covers an amazing range of what we need to know and cannot get in the press.

Stop hackers from erasing their content. Give them more money, not only to support them with real salaries, but also to give them better protective computer equipment.

Truthout is an important tool for an informed electorate, which the right does not seem to value.

TRUTHOUT brings truth in reporting right into my home. They are trustworthy and factual. Scrupulously so, if I may say...

Always well researched and easy to understand.

Truthout is an essential source of news for me every day. I currently live outside of the US, but I am an American who relies on getting the truth in journalism. I get my news from the internet, and I read a variety of news sources, but Truthout is at the top for providing me with news I can trust. It offers a compilation of the best news out there in both mainstream and alternative news.
I love the Buzz-out quick read news items--these pieces are always hard-hitting, immediate, and compelling. Truthout has some of the most intelligent voices in news--Thom Hartmann, Chris Hedges, William Rivers Pitt--people who are fearless in their expression of both fact and opinion.

Prior to the existence of such high-quality news on the web, I often felt isolated in my beliefs and opinions. After the 9-11 event at the World Trade Center in 2001, I immediately knew there was a story behind the official story. But try talking to your neighbors and friends and boy, you'd feel ostracized and 'unpatriotic.'

Now, when I get my daily dose of information, I know I am not alone, and I can see that I'm not the only one who feels a need to move our society in a different direction. I love that Truthout prints investigative pieces that go behind sensational headlines.

I want news that is vital. I find Huffington Post annoying; Alternet has its share of fluff. Truthout is the best!!!!

I am a regular viwer of Truthout for many years. It has been an essential source of news and information that is excluded from many of the "primary" and established print, broadcast and electronic media. It is an essential resource for uncovering the gloss of today's "news as entertainment." It is place to find other national and especially internations perspectives on policies, actions, programs and events. I am a science librarian by profession with a particular subject expertise in issues related to the environment. I am a member of the American Library Association's Social Responsibilities Round Table and the ALA Task Force on the Environment. Truthout's environmental and energy coverage is exhaustive, comprehensive, and ESSENTIAL to get a true global perspective on global environmental issues, concerns, sollutions, and resources. I support Truthout by words and by financial support to the best of my ability. USE and SUPPORT Truthout.

I am grateful to be receiving Truthout and intend to support the efforts of this alternative media. What does one expect from the corporate world when Disney owns ABC, Comcast owns NBC, Time Warner owns CNN, Fox Communications owns Fox News and whomever owns CBS. The media no longer provide in-depth reporting to the public. The major stories of the day are given shortshrift or not published at all. The contributors to Truth Out are impressive, Paul Krugman, Chris Hedges, etc.

Liberalism and progressivism need to reassert a place of pride in the messages disseminated to the American Public. The power elite of the United States has failed the people of the United States through a lack of responsibility and accountability. The sclerotic and dysfunctional status quo needs to be portrayed for what it truly is: a civilization in decline attempting to squeeze as much of the sweet juice from the fruit as possible prior to disposing of the "useless fiber."

Truth Out can be a medium for awareness and change in a changing world.

Increase its reach among the public. Have it focus on some very specific issues affecting Americans and provide avenues to engage members and work for redress within the political process.
