Facts Matter

The truth and experience matter as well as context that your chosen source of News, not Views offers. We The People don’t want to know what anyone thinks, but what someone knows for sure and can substantiate with reliable data. Everyone has opinions, but not necessarily all the real facts.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Are there five branches of government, and two are often overlooked?

Executive, Legislative, Judicial

What about The News Media, and last but not least, We The People?

The Fairness doctrine must be reinstated. Democracy can not survive without a well-informed electorate.

Whenever anyone is deciding if something they’ve heard or read about is true, everyone should agree the most important factor is whether all conclusions are supported by facts.

What we share online can have consequences in the real world. Misinformation can result in people being left uninformed & can put lives at risk during a crisis. #PledgeToPause and verify facts before sharing. https://shareverified.com/pledge-to-pause/

The world's top news organizations are:

The Associated Press 175 years old  https://apnews.com/hub/us-news?utm_source=apnewsnav&utm_medium=navigati… 1846, five New York City newspapers funded a pony express route through Alabama to bring news of the Mexican War north faster than the U.S. Post Office could deliver it. 

The AP was the first organization in the U.S. to operate on a national scale. Over the past 175 years, it has been the first to inform the world of many of history's most important moments, from the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the bombing of Pearl Harbor to the fall of the Shah of Iran and the death of Pope John Paul.

Today AP operates in 250 locations in 100 countries relaying breaking news, covering war and conflict, and producing enterprise reports that tell the world's stories.

Reuters is 170 years old https://www.reuters.com/ It tells all sides but takes none. Reuters goes back to the start, where there’s no bias and no agenda to tell the real story.

With unmatched coverage in over 16 languages, and reaching billions of people worldwide every day, it provides trusted intelligence that powers humans and machines to make smart decisions. Founded in 1851, Reuters has remained true to the Trust Principles of independence, integrity, and freedom from bias, working relentlessly to bring news from the source and from every corner of the world.
