Objective:

This blog is an attempt to look to the news that the mainstream media will not, and to deviate from said MSM to find the truth- unpleasant as it may be. I like entertainment as much as the next person, but not when its under the guise of a news station expected to report without bias. There is a duty to report all the issues of relevance objectively, factually, accurately, with attention to diversity and clear distinction as to whether or not something is commentary and opinion rather than real news. So, as you can imagine, this place will also not be very nice to Fox News. And I'm likely to be critical of my country. 1st Amendment.

Notes:
I thank every new follower, but I don't necessarily go to their blog to do so. Their Tumblr names are tagged in each thanking post. I appreciate all the attention! Don't necessarily expect a follow back though-unfortunately, I must reserve space for sources. • There's no such thing as a stupid question- only stupid answers.
