When the mainstream becomes the bullhorn of the Official Narrative, pumping out a continuous 24/7 river of propaganda, lies and fake news the resistence is found in alternative independent journalism resourced by many starved of truth, different dialogue and alternaitve perspectives. The battle ground for the minds of the people is information. In the mainstream the constant barrage into weak, ill informed minds easily destroys critical thinking, questioning of the Official Narrative and resonable debate.
The purpose of independent journalism is to counter this one sided barrage and bring the lens of critical appraisal to focus on what really matters, without the noise of distraction, diversion and manipulation. Truth is the first to suffer in a war and in this War on our Minds it is no exception. We present increasing, louder voices of reason, discussion, critical appraisal and viewpoint in this section

"Many journalists now are no more than channelers and echoers of what Orwell called the official truth. They simply cipher and transmit lies. It really grieves me that so many of my fellow journalists can be so manipulated that they become really what the French describe as functionaires, functionaries, not journalists."
