Along with other alternative media outlets, Before It’s News has always been on the forward edge of the news, reporting events happening now which establishment media ignores.
While thousands of establishment reporters shed all objectivity and professional ethics, being paid off or threatened into favoring any and all candidates over Trump, the independent reporters crashed through the lies and the hidden truths to get to the real story and make sure the waiting audiences around the globe got the facts they needed.
The 2016 Election became a stunning opportunity for citizens to add their voice and thoughts to the tired old rhetoric being spouted by the mainstream media. Citizen reporters were on the spot, seeing and feeling the events unfolding around them. They became the voices on the front line who took to the internet to share with others the facts as they happened. Emails, blogs, social media, and breaking news reports published on Before It’s News and other independent news sites pushed the fake and biased stories being pedaled by mainstream media to the sidelines and slammed the truth out to the world.
Because the battle between the key candidates became front page across the Internet from day one, their words heard in political rallies, town hall meetings and on every street corner, it forced every media outlet to step up and listen to the citizens who loudly demanded they be heard.
Mainstream media outlets destroyed the public’s trust when they only reported the same ole establishment views and positions, refusing to air contrary views, hiding the truth and even going so far as to turn off cameras and microphones when the words being spoken in a interview went against the media outlet’s views.
The results of all the lies and fake tales will not be forgotten anytime soon, and has definitely started a permanent change in how citizens of the world will find their news. Independent media sites like Before It’s News continued to present the same facts they had always been making available to the public, but now these news outlets suddenly were part of the political rhetoric, supported by Trump’s statements of media bias and false reporting, and backed by the years of reporting to the public on these same topics. No longer a conspiracy theory, but a hard fact.
So now, because the independent journalists got it right, because sites like Before It’s News reported the truth of events both in the past and unfolding, even the reporters of mainstream media outlets are referencing our news in their reports.
The Washington Post is quoting an independent news source concerning the post-election events, making their factual reporting part of the story. After all, establishment media wants to be sure they get it right, print the facts this time around, and not the fairy tale demanded in the past by the political and corporate heads.
On 12 November 2016, the publisher of The New York Times put in writing a promise to readers that the paper would dedicate their efforts to actually reporting “honestly” on events in the world and especially in America. The publisher also indicated the they would be “reflecting” on the election coverage they had provided this year. Sounds like a case of petulance because the organization was caught red-handed with their lies and biased reporting.
A positive side effect of the exposure that mainstream media attempted to dupe the public and influence an election has been for individuals to realize their own power to cover the truth and get it published, and to know they need to look to independent news outlets for the facts and not a fabrication of the events happening at the moment. And citizen reporters who participated in this event will never hesitate to lend their voice to situations both large and small as the demand for the truth and all the facts becomes a driving force.
