Review from Guidestar
July 31, 2010

Truthout forgets that its name starts with Truth, not fiction, not lies and lies is exactly what it has frequently posted about depleted uranium. The latest article by its Intern Mike Ludwig does not measure up to the prior standard established by reports from Mississippi a couple of years ago about the long ago lynchings there.

I have been reading their material for years. I would never donate to them and I find it hard to believe that my tax dollars (by virtue of their being tax exempt) are supporting an organization that is not really devoted to nothing but the truth.

Truthout has been an indispensable source of information on global issues of human rights -- including women's rights. By empowering more women journalists and correspondents in their daily news cycle, Truthout remains aligned with its mission of justice through education on the most important issues of our time. As a woman journalist myself, it's oftentimes difficult to break through within the long-standing patriarchal structure of news-breaking. But Truthout's internal structure, with its top administrative and editorial positions occupied by brilliant women, makes this glass ceiling disappear. Thank you, Truthout!

I am a co-convener of the legislative working group of United for Peace and Justice and a professor of US foreign policy. Of all the progressive websites, Truthout has been the most responsive to me and to the work of our organization (which has been mainly led by women). As our Congressional work has unfolded, the editors have sought our input on developments and they have also been willing to publish articles, when relevant. When other websites report on this subject, they have overwhelmingly relied on men as their sourcss. Truthout does excellent reporting. The fact that it is now led by women is a meaningful accomplishment.

A well curated combination of news and opinion, combining both original pieces and work published elsewhere. Insightful, provocative and challenging, I wish I had the time to fully digest all they offer. Occasionally, conflicting views may be presented, yet they are always well considered and thoughtfully presented. I wouldn't want to go without it.

Recent issues covered by Truthout include the BP oil spill, Rand Paul's election in KY, and the new immigration law in AZ. In covering each of these issues, Truthout consistently provides the reader with unique points of view, news on under-covered points of view, and frequently Truthout provides the reader with news stories not covered by the mainstream media. Their news coverage has sparked me to do more research into a number of topics and has caused me to change my view more than once. In a day of highly partisan news reporting, Truthout is a breath of fresh, and honest air!

Truthout is a great independent online news source that reports honestly and with integrity. Truthout is one of the few news sources that I can count on to be accurate and without a personal and/or business agenda. They report the truth and the facts...which is rare lately.

Truthout came to my attention as many of the articles I came across on various news boards and websites and found to be well researched, informed and often times the lone voice on a viewpoint were written for Truthout. Not sure if it was a Greg Palast, Noam Chomsky, Dhar Jamail, William Rivers Pitt or one of the other contributors but it did not take long to recognize the role that Truthout takes in providing real news to a neglected audience.

For a year or so Truthout was just one of several sources for news and opinion outside mainstream manipulations - good, helpful, trustworthy. But as political power plays became less literate, as the Obama-glow faded, as the US showed itself incapable of dealing with the fundamentals of functional democracy, Truthout became a pillar of sanity in the daily online schedule. Then to realize the actual quality of the contributors, to read them regularly, to find actual references to other reading included with the essays - Truthout exemplifies for me real and ethical journalism that operates from both a democratic imperative to truth but also from a pedagogy of respect for its readers...that they may become informed thinkers and participants in public life. Yes, "client served" as a daily reader; a "donor" as often as I can afford; a "professional" in that I am writing my dissertation and have made use of the references and will be quoting from essays; and a "general member" in that I post essays to Facebook. When I've had concerns or comments or had problems with email service, response from Truthout has been prompt and respectful. Of the several news sites I subscribe to, Truthout is the one I depend on most for thoughtful and in-depth consideration of the issues.

As any male/female/citizen, I am treated as though there IS a brain that thinks, that marketing pablum is not "News," that lies posing as journalism aren't acceptable, and that I am interested enough to read long, referenced, intelligent writing. Yea!

Truthout is an exceptional source for anyone interested in finding out more about important issues that are not being reported by the main-stream media outlets. I've been reading regularly for over a year now, and find their work to be extremely powerful and thought-provoking. Truthout is a beacon of truly independent journalism shining in a sea of circuses.

the way it has opened my mind to so many issues and ideas that I have not been exposed to elsewhere. The opinions and analysis provided by this organization on current world events add a rational voice to the issues at hand.
