News you can use…. and believe

Alternative Websites Offering the Researched Truth

This is a health magazine, and in order to make good decisions for the future of our emotional, physical, mental, spiritual and financial health it’s important that we have at our disposal the means to determine the truth. So we want to provide you with some alternative sites so as to broaden your choices as to what you listen to and watch. First of all, it’s important to know that 90% of our radio and TV media is now controlled by only six corporations. Radio and TV stations have been systematically purchased over the last 20 years by these six wealthy companies. Therefore the news we receive from the mainstream corporate channels is very controlled, and is focused only on what they want us to know. Very little backstory research is done to explain the history behind something that’s being reported. Also, distraction is a method these corporations use daily. Celebrity news instead of real news is on all the channels every day. Also, the mainstream news outlets steer us away from current issues that matter and steer us toward issues that may be emotional distractions.

It’s upsetting to realize how much power the mainstream corporate media has in focusing public opinion on any one issue. Remember the “weapons of mass destruction” threat that turned out to be a lie? If the mainstream media was doing its job, and employed some real journalists instead of using talking heads who are just reading from a sheet of paper, we could say that we have some real journalism. But sadly, that’s not the case. It’s also upsetting when we realize that members of the Board of Directors of General Electric, the biggest weapons manufacturer in the world, are also sitting on the boards of some of the major media corporations. It becomes very easy then to create a drumbeat of emotional news pushing us toward war. Weapons manufacturers need constant war in order to keep their profits high and it’s shameful that the US is #1 in manufacturing and selling weapons of war. It’s a direct conflict of interest for people who will benefit from war, to be able to influence the population to agree to go to war.

The opportunity to visit some tried-and-true websites and read the backstory about an issue has never before been available, not to any other generation. Millions of people are now taking advantage of these alternative news sites. They are becoming the new “mainstream” as people wake up and realize they’ve been misinformed and manipulated. These sites are rising in popularity because they provide real news and views that go unexamined by the mainstream corporate media, which is great at reporting surface issues such as car accidents, plane crashes and robberies. Distractions. But now people are waking up to the subtle corruption in almost every area of our society. And there’s a great deal of anger about that. So how do we decide what to watch or listen to, what to believe? Here are some choices:
