Seven years ago I published a list of sources I considered useful for gathering real news as opposed to repackaged Pentagon or State Department talking points posing as news.
The list is much shorter today. Venerables like Democracy Now! have succumbed to the lure of big money and as a result are cheerleading for proxy war in Ukraine. How the mighty have fallen.
With a particular focus on the ginning up of war against China, here’s my current list. The link will take you to an article or episode related to the U.S. pivot to Asia, but the whole publication is worthy of attention. In no particular order:
Covert Action Magazine (text)
CaitlinJohnstone.com (text or audio)
Pearls and Irritations (text)
Reports on China (short videos)
Consortium News (text)
Organizing Notes (text or videos)
Sydney Criminal Lawyers blog (text)
MintPress News (text and videos)
My list is heavy on text (which I prefer) and light on videos and podcasts (which many people prefer these days). Please use comments to suggest other reliable sources I’ve missed!
EDITED Feb 12 to include more sources:
The Cradle (text)
Global Research (text)
BreakThrough News (videos)
