TruePublica evolved from a project started in 2012 through a website that offered an alternative view on current affairs, particularly in Britain. Its popularity required continual metamorphosis until its latest iteration, where, at its peak, the website reached over 1 million users a week, was as a top 1 per cent social media performer and rated “politically influential” by Twitrland. It was featured on well-known and highly influential outlets around the world – representing some of the most widely accessed news websites in the so-called ‘alternative’ news sphere. The website attracted writers from national newspapers and political policy writers, amongst others.
Its initial success motivated a small team to tackle the current excesses of geopolitical and neoliberal thinking to help the wider public understand the importance of questioning and researching these important public interest topics. The purpose of TruePublica is to enable more informed decisions and opinions on matters such as civil liberty, human rights, privacy, social, economic and environmental issues as well as globalisation, war and pivotal events such as the refugee catastrophe, Brexit and Trump’s America that is unfolding in front of us all.
TruePublica will shine a light on political parties, the corporations that fund them and their lobbyists along with providing informed commentary from some of the most well-known journalists from around the world whose truth-telling is second to none – often award-winning.
TruePublica is quoted, cited, republished and referenced all over the world:
From Counterpunch: “DemocracyNow and other leading alternative media need to start including different analyses. To a sad extent, their coverage of Syria has echoed NPR and CNN. If DemocracyNow is truly an “Exception to the Rulers”, it needs to start including more critical examinations. DN producers should be studying publications such as Consortiumnews, Global Research, AntiWar, MoonOfAlabama, Al Masdar News, Al Mayadeen, CounterPunch, DissidentVoice, American Herald Tribune, 21stCenturyWire, Black Agenda Report, RT, PressTV and TruePublica (not corporate ProPublica).”
There are many posts published on this website from various journalists. They represent the views and opinions of the authors as they see the world from their perspective. These are not necessarily the views of TruePublica, its editors or supporters.
In addition to TruePublica, NewsPublica.com has been launched.
NewsPublica.com aggregates independent and alternative news articles covering topics we all need to know about, whilst staying away from the ‘tin foil hat’ brigade and the false mouthpiece of the establishment, both of whom are more often than not in the entertainment business than they are about reporting the truth. Part of the reason for visiting NewsPublica is to ensure you are not in a self-constructed or force-fed echo chamber, so you are exposed to opposing views to increase your knowledge and understanding of what is rapidly becoming a very confusing world. We post political news from socialist, liberal, centrist and conservative outlets along with some of their harshest critics from the most well known and fearless bloggers and fact-checkers to support the truth.
NewsPublica also brings you other topics of interest, all of which is laid out in a single easy to read format, with a text snapshot of each story for you to scan articles quickly. The website generates the latest articles, stories and information each time you visit or refresh the page.
In 2006, about 65 per cent of the general public believed what they read in British newspapers in and in little more than ten years this high level of trust has crashed to under 30 per cent. In fact, trust in the four institutions of government, business, media and NGO’s has taken a dramatic dive in just the last three years alone.
We are also a proud member of The Media Fund, a cooperative of independent media outlets free of corporate or government control.
