I don’t think I’m being a paranoid conspiracy theorist when I say that the “mainstream media” is controlled by an oligarchy of a few super-rich individuals.
It’s common knowledge that most politicians are little more than whores of big business and special interests.
For these reasons and others, it takes a little bit of effort to weed out all the garbage.
Here are a few people I believe are generally accurate, truthful, and helpful in figuring out what the heck is really going on. They are all liberty-minded, and therefore much of what they say goes against the status quo. Unless you’re perfectly fine with the direction the world is heading, you should find them enlightening and edifying.
This is by no means a comprehensive list – I’ve only chosen people who are currently active in some form of media. In future posts, I’ll suggest lists of websites, authors, books, etc. This is just a primer.
I’ve included a website for each of them. Apparently, you’ll have to copy and paste the URLs, since I can’t seem to just insert links.
In no particular order:
1. Ron Paul http://paul.house.gov/index.php
2. Judge Andrew Napolitano http://www.judgenap.com/2010/freedom-watch/
3. Thomas E. Woods http://www.tomwoods.com/
4. Lew Rockwell http://www.lewrockwell.com/politicaltheatre/
5. Michael Scheuer http://non-intervention.com/
6. John Stossel http://www.foxbusiness.com/on-air/stossel/blog/
7. Peter Schiff http://www.schiffradio.com/
8. Jesse Ventura http://weaintgottimetobleed.com/vault/
9. Alex Jones http://www.infowars.com/
Of course, a good youtube search will also do the trick. These guys all have plenty of videos out there.
I’ll add more as I think of them. Enjoy!
