Review for Truthout, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Since the media no longer reports any news not relating to Lindsey Lohan it has become mandatory to search out news on the internet and read it to yourself. Truthout provides a website that gathers important news from a variety of sources, and their own reporters' and opinion writers' articles, in one place. If you are registered with their site they send the articles straight to your email address. I read everyday from the Truthout emails. I read news that never sees the light of day, at worst, or news that may eventually make it into mainstream news, months or years later. With Truthout you know what's going on, when it's going on.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I can not count the times that I have read news about the Iraq war, the war in Afganistan, governmental issues, social issues, days, weeks, months, and years, before it was reported anywhere else.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would give them subpoena power!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their high standards of journalism.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have not yet had that pleasure.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the world for the better.

Ways to make it better...

I could read faster.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. I'm just assuming that since they don't report on Lindsey Lohan and Paris Hilton or Sandra Bullock, that they are cash strapped.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I read from their site every single day and while that doesn't make me as smart as Rachel Maddow, it makes me as well informed.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
