What is the idea for Before It's News?
As we were following the 2008 election, we noticed something very interesting -- bloggers covered many of the breaking stories days before the alphabet soup news outlets (NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, AP, MSNBC, FOX, etc.).
Important facts were omitted or ignored by the mainstream media mainly because these facts inconveniently do not fit into the memes these outlets routinely promote. In other words, there is a strong bias amongst most corporate media outlets.
It turns out that most stories are actually given to them by people who want to get the news out to the world. We thought to ourselves, why not create a way for the people with the news, the sources, to get it out to the world without the middleman screening out all the good bits?
While real time, cable TV is an endless parade of ads and foolish pundits that sound like an echo chamber for their ideologies. Only the internet and mobile phone revolution will enable People Powered News and let people see the whole truth, unfiltered. That's our goal.
