About Us: Alternative News

The Truth Unites is a non-partisan collection of written articles and videos from a variety of sources that challenge the mainstream media and its often extremely skewed reporting of the events that shape our lives.

Large news organisations are too often a victim of their own corporate governance and rather than report objectively on current affairs, tend to eschew the truth and disseminate a political agenda that has been thrust upon them by their respective governments, board of directors and institutional shareholders.

Wikipedia states:

Journalism ethics and standards comprise principles of ethics and of good practice as applicable to the specific challenges faced by journalists. Historically and currently, this subset of media ethics is widely known to journalists as their professional “code of ethics” or the “canons of journalism”. The basic codes and canons commonly appear in statements drafted by both professional journalism associations and individual print, broadcast, and online news organisations.

While various existing codes have some differences, most share common elements including the principles of — truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness and public accountability — as these apply to the acquisition of newsworthy information and its subsequent dissemination to the public.

Like many broader ethical systems, journalism ethics include the principle of “limitation of harm.” This often involves the withholding of certain details from reports such as the names of minor children, crime victims’ names or information not materially related to particular news reports release of which might, for example, harm someone’s reputation.

This code of ethics, apparently, has been ignored by the biased and often sensationalist journalistic practices of many large media organisations. The media plays an integral role in the public’s perception of domestic and geopolitical events, and thus should be heavily regulated outside of political and corporate influences to best represent the public interest. This has been seen by many media moguls as a sleight against their “freedom of speech”, which is perhaps an oxymoron given the blatantly biased nature of most media outlets.

All too often a misguided cult of personality, driven by destructive nationalistic hysteria, ensues from such inaccurate reporting; resulting in the suffering of millions for the benefit of an opportunistic cabal of bankers, businessmen and politicians.

The Truth Unites seeks to distance itself from both these propagandists and the inevitable conspiracy theorist pundits, and to sift through the growing sea of disinformation to present articles from a broad cross section of writers and journalists that present the truth in a concise and well researched manner.

There is a burgeoning movement around the World that is suspicious of the often inaccurate information that is disseminated by media outlets and the impact that it has upon the public psyche. It is imperative that this manipulation of public opinion that has been abused throughout history by a despicable few, in the interests of furthering their own nefarious agendas, is exposed by a free media without reservation.

It is our duty to mankind to halt the spread of corporate propaganda, religious and political dogma and the disparity that it creates and to spread the TRUTH so that all of humanity can thrive.
