Our Writers

Our Writers

We are looking for more writers to document incidents of mainstream American news bias. You can join our growing movement to end media corruption and make the mainstream news media the fair, objective and professional industry it was intended to be.

The Free Press is not Free if reporters and journalists twist their reporting with partisan and subjective opinions. We want clean, factual news. Let the opinion commentators analyze the news through their Op-Eds and Commentaries under the names, openly and accountably.

Let’s end the corruption in which reporters use their positions claiming to be fair and objective while demonizing issues, individuals and whole ethnic and religious communities.

These are our founding writers. We are hoping to see this list of writers and contributors grow.
