The aims of TruePublica as one of UK’s top sources independent news is to publish news, analysis, commentary and research on events of public interest (hence the Latin – ‘Publica’) and to raise awareness of misinformation, disinformation, fake news and propaganda.
TruePublica is an independent media source that is quoted, cited, republished, referenced and translated all over the world.
We are particularly focused on challenging current neoliberal ideology that is causing a wave of disruption as western countries move from one social and economic crisis to another, and support the principles of real democracy (the will of the people), capitalism (price discovery, not rigged markets) and civil liberty (freedom from state interference).
TruePublica also acts as a hub, liaising with partner organisations and individuals with similar aims. We are privately managed and made up of contributing journalists, writers, authors, researchers and both industry and academic professionals.
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 pivotal events such as the Brexit and the effects of Trump’s America that is unfolding in front of us all.
TruePublica evolved from a project started in 2012 through a website that offered an alternative view on current affairs, particularly in Britain. 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.” It was featured on well-known and highly influential outlets around the world – and attracted writers from national newspapers and political policy writers, amongst others.
By 2015, it was obvious that fake news, misinformation and propaganda was a driving force behind much of the political outcomes being experienced today, which inspired us to help the wider public understand the importance of questioning and researching these important public interest topics.
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.
In addition to TruePublica, NewsPublica.com was 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.
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, today 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.
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.
We are also a proud member of The Media Fund, a cooperative of independent media outlets free of corporate or government control.
