Independent News & Journalism
It's very important to know what's going on, and what decisions are being made by governments on our behalf, so most of us read the news. The problem is that it is becoming progressively more difficult to find news stories that are the honest product of a genuinely independent journalist. Open-minded journalists generally don't keep their jobs because most news outlets exist to serve the agenda dictated by those who pay the salaries and therefore call the shots.
And since independent journalists can't compete with the advertising and production budgets of mainstream news outlets, unless we put considerable effort into going out of our way to track down independent journalists, most of the news we stumble upon will inevitably be mainstream news - presented in a way that promotes and defends the interests of the wealthy media outlet owners who nearly all are globalists.
Why this resource?
Our organisation exists to uphold and defend rights and liberties that are only able to be safeguarded if Britain retains its national sovereignty. We are therefore engaged in an information war against the globalists, since they are avowed enemies of the concept of independent nation states, and would seek to keep Britain under the control of unelected bureaucrats who themselves are controlled by globalist interests.
We have therefore compiled this resource to facilitate straightforward access to resources created by independent journalists.
The Problem with Independent Journalism
Although this site exists to promote the dissemination of independent news, this itself is not without its problems. In the absence of there being a large, reasonably well-funded team of journalists working together for the same organisation, in which peers may discuss, critique and advise on one another's work, small independent news outlets tend to suffer strong bias that is often driven by a very narrow raison d'être. To a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
One problem with this is that if one persistently consumes a single news source, one may easily be carried along with the same inevitable bias as the person or team overseeing that outlet.
Lack of balance
A further problem is that in the absence of funding to afford access to a sufficient number of different sources as to ensure that stories are adequately researched and fairly and equally represented by opposing actors, sources may will usually tend to be chosen on the basis of ideological or political affinity to the outlet (not unlike mainstream media outlets).
Conspiratorial and speculative
Another problem is that where resources are lacking, the void must be filled with something, and that is often the journalist's imagination or biased hypothesis. And in the absence of contradiction from well-meaning, honest journalist colleagues, there is often not sufficient resistance to prevent excessive speculation and conspiratorial theorising.
However, watching events unfold over the last couple of years, it appears that the conspiracy theorists seem to have had a better handle on the run of world events that the career journalists, so we would be reluctant to disparage the speculative theorising that's necessary where resources are lacking.
While there are obvious compromises to the potential quality of information provided by small, independent journalists, it is our view that our readers or viewers will obtain a better grasp of what is going on by considering the work of a broad range of flawed, independent journalists, than by consuming the cynical, manipulative and deliberately deceitful work of the overwhelming majority of mainstream news sources. And yes, sadly that judgement applies equally to the BBC as to organisations that are overtly privately owned and controlled.
In the light of the above, some of the sources we share will be unreliable and of poor quality. We would invite feedback, both in terms of criticism of sources we share and recommendations of sources we do not yet share. Those who want to know the truth must rely on one another, as there is only strength in unity. Divided - fragmented into ineffective little little cliques - we all fall.
