Opportunities to broaden your mind and knowledge are plentiful if you search the internet.

The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox… There will be no highlights on the eleven o’clock news… The revolution will not be right back after a message… The revolution will not go better with Coke… Because the revolution will not be televised. ~ Gil Scott Heron

Let’s face it, the mainstream media, like CNN, Fox News etc. are great at reporting on the surface understandings of surface issues; car accidents and plane crashes, shootings and robberies; as well as reinforcing why our latest foreign war is good/necessary/the only way to peace and security. But if you really want to investigate and comprehend what is actually going on in the world, and why, you have to go past the mainstream.

Just look at the countless global events being reported by the underground news and compare it to the selective, politically-biased fear-fare of the mainstream; there is little journalistic integrity on display in the mainstream media, just the regurgitation of B.S. And lots of it. Even the surface events reported in the mainstream are often filtered, distorted and even blatantly constructed by media corporations that conceal their corporate and political alliances behind the guise of “news”.

So, if you desire to go past the simplified “what, where and when” of a situation, to explore the deeper aspects of the “who, why, how”, it’s crucial to look beyond the mainstream for your information. And, including a list of 50 of the world’s best “alternative” news and information outlets, this article is going to help you do it…

    I agree.

    We live in a worldwide web of deceit that was build after nations and national academies of sciences were united on 24 OCT 1945 to “save the world from nuclear annihilation” by hiding the source of energy in atomic bombs from the public.
