Review for Truthout, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

My own and friends' awareness of what is going on in The States and in the world.

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

Stop hackers from erasing their content. Give them more money, not only to support them with real salaries, but also to give them better protective computer equipment.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I have been an active member of Democrats Abroad Japan, Kansai Chapter for many years, (an officer for six years). .
