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?

Or, do you only watch those news sources which confirm your personal beliefs, thereby cancelling out any opinions you don't want to hear?

Try These!
Then, make up YOUR mind for YOURSELF.
I hope that you find these alternative news media resources useful.
