MEDIACENTER INTRO MUSIC

Whattup!  My goal here is to promote media literacy, and create an easy-to-browse page for my favorite digital information sources, and community-oriented content creators. 

Since there is no such thing as "objective journalism", I do not look for it in my news source.  The news sources on this list reflect my personal interests, biases, and perspectives.  I'll be regularly updating the page with new sources, and updating the playlists at the bottom.

I am most interested in News that challenges us to think deeper and with clarity.  News that empowers masses of regular people to identify and understand the forces which dictate their life experience.  An honest, "truth-seeking" News will necessarily speak for those at the margins - those living precariously on the sharpest edges of OUR society.

I INTENTIONALLY DO NOT seek to have my worldview confirmed when I watch the news.  I look for genuine voices, useful discourse, even disagreement and ideological conflict - from honest, transparent spaces.

FULL FACT LOGO.jpg

A UK-based fact-checking website & fact-checking charity, with a diverse range of funding and transparency around income.

Full Fact also goes further than fact checks and even provides a fact-checking toolkit. The site also pushes for corrections from publishers when they publish incorrect or misleading information.

From their website:

"We fight bad information in different ways. First, we fact check claims made by politicians, public institutions and journalists, as well as viral content online. We all deserve information we can trust.

We follow up on our fact checks. By asking people to correct the record when they get things wrong, we can stop and reduce the spread of bad information.
