We believe that the mainstream media increasingly practices self-censorship, and that it ignores many opinions and historical events. With the media distorting or ignoring information, it’s often very hard to get an accurate picture of a problem, even while watching the news.

We created Trueactivist.com because we wanted to find an easy way to bring thought-provoking, educational, and entertaining media to anyone with an Internet connection.
