What would we do without Truthout. They nurture real journalism and true journalists. Reading Truthout everyday i find the conversation i need to be more informed and smarter. Thoughtful and consider arguments and explorations into peace, climate change, racism: the issues we are grappling with daily by those in contact with the front lines.

I count on Truthout to support and publish the kind of great stories about climate change that are so missing from most of the rest of our mainstream media. Who else will support this work? Even NPR seems to have lost its edge over the last several years.

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.

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.

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....

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.

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.

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.
