In this new age of Internet and alternative media, many of us are seeing through the self-serving antics of the corporate press. People are looking instead to new or previously underrated sources of information. Old major news networks like CNN and MSNBC are seeing record-breaking drop-offs in viewership. Meanwhile, alternatives like The Daily Wire are skyrocketing to great success, producing high-quality documentaries (and even thrilling motion pictures to rival a failing Hollywood.) The age of a public blindly trusting in establishment personalities is near an end.
Here's a list of the best news alternatives I've been able to find. Of course, none of them are perfect. Everyone has their biases and limitations. But there's a world of difference between blatantly biased, corrupt corporate media which are beholden to shareholders (or to the Government) and independent journalists who operate free from such restrictions. These new contenders are judged by a younger, quicker-witted, better cultured, more diverse, and far more skeptical audience.
For Canadian news, the best source of actual on-the-ground journalism is Rebel News. They have a popular website and YouTubechannel which have garnered international attention with their coverage of the Trucker Convoy in both Canada and Australia. Their fearless, on-the-ground journalism is unmatched in this country.
For quality news articles, I recommend True North, Western Standard, LifeSiteNews, and the hard-hitting Truth Comes To Light. If you're still a sucker for mainstream news, National Post is perhaps your best option. You'll find their reporting noticeably less daring than the alternatives I've listed. Like other major Canadian news companies, National Post has been subsidized by the Government. Therefore, it is of little surprise that they go soft against matters of Government corruption. However, they have some excellent opinion pieces by Rex Murphy and others. Substack features Canadian journalists like Tara Henley, who quit CBC News due to its deceptive reporting. Rav Arora is a daring 20-year-old Substacker and a The New York Post columnist who tells the truth.
For honest, insightful political and legal commentary, I recommend Montreal litigator turned YouTuber Viva Frei. Frei became famous for his in-depth, personal coverage of the Trucker Convoy. He is occasionally joined by LA attorney Robert Barnes to discuss both Canadian and American news and legal topics. They've both been featured live on the Timcast IRL Podcast. For more Canadian legal takes, try Runkle of the Bailey or Don't Talk TV.
Epoch Times is a good resource for American or Canadian news. The newspaper was founded by American-Chinese journalists who fled Communist China. Naturally, Epoch Times has a focus on the tyranny of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and its many corrupt dealings with our nations' leaders. China Uncensored is a YouTube news channel which follows the shocking crimes of the CCP, and its self-admitted "unrestricted warfare" on many countries. The UK newspaper Daily Mail does some good global news reporting. So does the Australian Sky News.
Popular Indian news network TFI Global has a Canadian news YouTubechannel for important stories you'll likely miss.
For medical news, follow the daring journalist Alex Berenson on his website or on Substack. He's been proven right about almost everything related to vaccines. Dr. Robert Malone is an eminent scientist of virology and vaccine technology who has been outspoken about the Covid-19 vaccines. Malone has a website, and is a contributor to the Global Covid Summit (GCS). The organization has been pushing back against the unscientific and unethical mishandling of the Covid-10 Pandemic. Dr. Anish Koka is a Board Certified Internist/Cardiologist who holds additional certifications in Nuclear Cardiology, Echocardiography, and Cardiac Device management. He discusses medical truth on his Substack and YouTubechannel. For in-depth educational medical commentary, try the retired British nurse teacher Dr. John Campbell on YouTube.
For American news, The Daily Wire is a heavyweight in alternative news. It was founded by the famous conservative debater, Ben Shapiro. Another option is Timcast, founded by journalist Tim Pool. Pool has three YouTube channels updated daily: Timcast, Tim Pool, and TimcastIRL. The TimcastIRL Podcast features a diverse assortment of characters: the 'milk toast fence-sitter' Tim Pool, the hippie Ian Crossland, conservative producer Lydia Leitermann, and occasionally the libertarian-esque Luke Rudkowski. Rudkowski hosts the We Are Changewebsite, and the quick, daily, in-depth We Are ChangeYouTube show examining gross corruption overlooked elsewhere. Rudkowski became famous for his journalistic efforts to expose Jeffrey Epstein and his elite criminal network.
BlazeTV is another strong contender. The Hill's Kim Iversen recently quit the network after they refused to allow her to ask tough questions of Anthony Fauci. She now runs her own YouTube news channel similar to Tim Pool. So does Journalist Savanah Hernandez. Her channel is called Sav Says. Hernandez has been banned on major social media sites like Twitter due to her work exposing inhumanity in the Democrat-enforced Border Crisis and vaccine mandates.
Project Veritas is arguably the best remaining source of journalism in the U.S. Led by its founder, James O'Keefe, they've won several court battles in which they have sued or been sued over matters of defamation. This only cements their credibility as a hardcore journalistic endeavor despised by establishment players. Multiple corporate media rags such as The New York Times have been exposed for deceptive reporting through Veritas' efforts. As further evidence of the company's stature, 25-year CNN Operations Manager Patrick Davies recently retired from the failing network to become an Executive Producer for Veritas. Besides their website, Veritas also has a successful YouTubechannel.
One must also mention the hard work of Judicial Watch, an unbiased organization that sought legal action against both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations. Led by Tom Fitton, they have sued for countless documents exposing the corruption of the Hillary Clinton campaign. Where it comes to legal consequences, Fitton has observed that judges have so far treated Clinton as someone apparently protected by special legal exemption. Yet legally, no one is supposed to be above the law.
As for trustworthy mainstream reporting, I personally have tremendous respect for Tucker Carlson of Fox News. His coverage of the Trucker Convoy was somehow better-informed and more concise than of any Canadian media. Quite an impressive feat.
The loveable English hippie Russel Brand will make you laugh while he blows your mind on insightful pieces of knowledge you are likely to miss. For UK news commentary, try The Podcast of the Lotus Eaters. Host Carl Benjamin also runs the YouTube channel Sargon of Akkad. Neil Oliver is a television presenter, archaeologist, historian and author. Maajid Nawaz is a brilliant radio presenter and columnist who writes on Substack.
Lex Fridman sits down with authors and thinkers for intimate conversations on culture, politics, and where society is headed. Bounding in the Comics has become a popular source for Geek Culture news. The hosts of Clownfish TV also publish Pirates & Princesses, a semi-wholesome culture news site.
