Truthout does excellent and vital work for global political and ecological discourses. Particularly the work of Dahr Jamail and William Rivers Pitt stands out in my opinion. Not only are they great journalist asking hard, important questions and delving into hypocrisies of power and the paradox of global capitalism, they are great writers.
This is one of my fav news portal which reveals us good news and great information about world politics/...
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.
Love you guys, would that national news were more of the truth like you and less like beck dreck... Please continue your great articles amnd links, if you are pissing off the elite, you must be doing it right! Thanks for all!
Truthout is indispensable. Transparency is hard to come by in this country news-wize. I otherwise depend on outsiders - RT / 24 / MHZ because their opinions are more objective and nuanced than the defensive content delivered by the US Barbie anchors and tie straightening, bloated politicians.
Truthout is a breath of fresh air when it comes to informative, analytic journalism. Never partisan, always exact and to the point, it has rapidly become my best resource for understanding what is happening around me.
Truth Out brings news and information that is vital in an age of corporate bought news organizations. We need truthout to be alive and viable in order to see through these dark ages.
I have read the various articles in TRUTHOUT for awhile. I don't like the general media, which I find to be numbing and slanted toward what I call the corporate sponsered non-news. I trust TRUTHOUT to have renowned investigative writers and people who question the status-quo. I want to know the facts so I can draw my own conclusions. I don't care about what I call the fluff and stuff news, ie. Lindsey, Brittaniny, Rush L., and Beck-the people whose egos must be stroked(shiver), so they make their millions. I am a free thinker and TRUTHOUT supports free thinking.
I read truthOut daily. Having their articles stream to my facebook account helps me keep up with views you just don't find in most corporate controlled media outlets. Someone has to counterbalance the stream of corporate sponsored news. Access to independent analysis is critical to staying informed about current events and long term trends.
I rely on Truthout for daily, in-depth, well-researched reporting. Now I just have to remember to mail in another contribution to them so that they can keep giving me more of the same.
My physical introduction to Truthout was on April 26 when George Lakoff shared a pannel with Norman Solomon, KPfA hostess, Bonnie Faulkner, & Sonoma State professor, Cynthia Boas. The success of this event acknowledges the efforts of my group of activists at Marin Peace and Justice Coalition, finding partnership with the energy of Truthout staff and service. Reading their articles have been a regular part of my intellectual diet for a while now.
Truthout is a top rate news provider, and a vital one. They touch the stories that no one else will. And in addition I have found them to be accurate and dependable. So far I have not found them to be in error, lying or exaggerating, or giving a 'spin' to a story to promote a specific viewpoint. This type of old school journalistic integrity is rare and valuable in this time of 'fluff' news that has been watered down and 'tailored' for 'consumers'.
