Political cartoon

Be an informed voter—stay informed with independent media sources.

What's an "independent media source"?

  • One that's not owned by a corporate conglomerate (such as Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News) AND
  • Funded by individual donations and subscribers, not by for-profit corporations AND
  • Dedicated to telling the truth by reporting facts, regardless of a political agenda

Trustworthy and factual information is available on-line from these independent media sources.

Disinformation Defined

Disinformation is false information deliberately and often covertly spread (as by the planting of rumors) in order to influence public opinion or obscure the truth. (Merriam-Webster)

Primary sources of information are the best defense against disinformation. And it’s true: Informing oneself from primary sources requires more time and effort than a quick listen to sound-bite news summaries.

Why is it worth it? Because, rather than pundits’ opinions, you get the facts—and can take well-informed action.
