Reality revolves around our perception of the world. It depends on what we can perceive. The type of information we have when perceiving reality is vital to understand it as it truly is.
The gap between what is believed real and what is indeed real grows because of lack of information or the use of biased information. That is why The Real Agenda News presents the best information analysis with angles you can not find in any other source of information. It’s because we understand that you want to know what happens and how events affect reality, that we produce articles and reports with historical perspective that show you what’s behind the headlines.
Shouldn’t your decisions be based on truthful, fact-supported information? Don’t you deserve real information? Don’t you want to be in complete control of your life? If you agree, stop following mainstream media and turn your eyes to the new media. Because everything you do is based on choices you make and because those choices are based on information you obtain or that is provided to you, it is imperative to operate on the best information possible.
The Real Agenda News is a digital news media outlet that was born as a project to satisfy the demand for real information as supposed to the list of talking points traditionally megaphoned by the traditional news media, which admittedly have been working for powerful corporate interests for at least the last 100 years. This reality is well-known by almost everyone, and it has been immensely illustrated by the thoughts expressed by some of the corporate barons who the mainstream media serve.
“We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. … It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.” — David Rockefeller.
Under such reality, it was easy to understand why traditional media would always refrain from reporting impartially and why journalism had become an opinion-based affair, as supposed to a fact-seeking enterprise. Different from the corporate media, The Real Agenda Newsoperates independently. Since its humble creation in April 2009, this medium has been characterized by not accepting money from corporate sponsors, governments or organizations with ties to neither the former nor the latter. The reason for this is that both corporate sponsors and governments are driven by ideology, which directly opposes the pillar principles that support the work done at The Real Agenda News and the rules that govern the profession of Journalism..
The journalistic work presented at The Real Agenda News is the result of the need to know and the need to inform. Our journalism originates on inquiries based on a search for that which is ignored or under reported. The Real Agenda News is not an echo chamber. Instead, our reports are meant to make noise for themselves. Our original work is supported by a group of contributors who provide historical and current perspectives on the issues that matter the most to our readers without the filters used by the main stream media.
Writers include the founder Luis R. Miranda, a co-award winner journalist with 18 years of experience on almost every type of media. Luis is a graduate from Montclair State University’s School of Broadcasting. He also obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from Universidad Latina de Costa Rica. Luis speaks English, Spanish Portuguese and Italian. His work is enhanced by high caliber collaborators such as Paul Craig Roberts, the Chairman of The Institute for Political Economy and former Associate Editor and columnist for The Wall Street Journal; Stephen J. Lendman, a Harvard University graduate who won the 2008 Project Censored Award; Kevin Mugur Galalae; Michel Chossudovsky, an award-winning author, Professor of Economics (emeritus) at the University of Ottawa and the Founder and Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization, Christina England, a Journalist who writes for the American Chronicle, the Weekly Blitz and Vaccination Truth, and others who graciously allow us to reprint their valuable contributions to modern journalism.
This is why The Real Agenda News’ slogan is Reality is Waiting. The type of journalism practiced by its writers and collaborators is not intended to produce revenue by selling ad space, but to generate smart discussions about topics that are relevant to individuals and their surroundings.
The only kind of support requested by those who work at The Real Agenda News is that readers help spread the new breed of true journalism this medium seeks to promote: investigative, incisive and thought-provoking news reporting that does not compromise with any political ideology, religious belief or opinion-based agenda. That is why you can access our reporting free of cost on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Google Currents and through our news feed.
A feature that separates The Real Agenda News different from other news media outlets is that in addition to reporting news in English, it produces articles in Spanish, the second most spoken language in the world, and Portuguese. We pioneered this feature as an alternative news medium back in 2009.
