Review for Truthout, Sacramento, CA, USA
Truthout has rapidly become my most trusted source of news. Not only because of the bravery and eloquence of its writers, but for its insistence on focusing on what is important.

I care about America's actions and profile around the globe. I care about holding my elected officials accountable - even if I campaigned hard for them. I deserve the truth, I deserve the dignity of making informed decisions, and I can't be distracted by bread and circuses. I have to make hard decisions, I have to sacrifice, in order to be a good parent, a good neighbor and a good citizen.

This recent attack on Truthout is an act of war on the American intellect.
