Alternative News Media
Watching the same old news?
Try to mix it up a bit.

by Vaughn Aubuchon

Are you tired of being spoon-fed the same propaganda, day after day? The same old "sound bites" over and over again?
Are you aware of all the LIES that are being accepted as FACT? Do you care?


Have you considered listening to differing viewpoints from alternative news media?
Try These!
Then, make up YOUR mind for YOURSELF.
I hope that you find these alternative news media resources useful.

Pure Bullspit Sites
Designed to separate you from your money.

NEWSMAX.COM
The ultimate conservative BS site

This site has NOTHING to do with news, just money.
Endless, obnoxious videos, (1/2 hour long) that serve pure cr@p.
Unsubstantiated claims, covered in whipped cream BS, then "Send Us Money". The narrator always sounds just like a carnival barker, making wild claims, designed to make you feel like an idiot if you do not respond immediately.

Try a few Google searches - newsmax liars, newsmax ads

Newsmax Privacy Policy

"We will do anything and everything we can think of to violate your privacy". (paraphrased) Read it yourself.

www.moneynews.com
www.newsmax.com/video
www.newsmaxhealth.com/
www.newsmaxworld.com/

Pure, ultra-conservative BULL.

www.marined3.com

Over 1/2 hour of hyper-bullspit. "You have been specially selected".
Only $140 per bottle for vitamin D3. Such a deal.

taboola.com serves many newsmax ads.
Which tells you all you need to know about Taboola.
