Gone are the days of Woodward and Berstein, if they were even genuine, after all. Investigative journalism is non-existent in the corporate media and has been for a long time. The business model of the corporate media is simply not conducive to investigative journalism. Most of the information we see and hear on the mainstream news is just weaponized infotainment meant to control us. As a result, we’ve allowed ourselves to be programmed by a false narrative with hidden agendas that are not in our best interest. Fortunately, citizen journalists have picked up the slack in the last decade. Here is a list of the men and women who are digging deep and not afraid to question the corporate media or establishment narrative. The description is in their own words taken from their respective websites or social media pages.
We promote independent media sources that are being suppressed, censored, or just not widely known. Vision Launch Media does not necessarily endorse the views of the media we promote, but we find the censorship of free thought that falls outside the mainstream narrative completely unacceptable. We think people are mature enough to see and hear all of the information and form their own opinion. Censorship is only used to control people.
We wish to cultivate critical thought by making it easy to find information that is not discussed in the national conversation. Liberty cannot exist without free speech and the free-flow of information. With that said, please use your own discernment, do your own research, and question everything. Nothing is as it seems.
Critical Thought Requires That We Question Everything & Everyone!

Today, O’Keefe serves as the CEO and Chairman of the Board, so that he can continue to lead and teach his fellow journalists, as well as protect and nurture the Project Veritas culture.

James Corbett – The Corbett Report
The Corbett Report is an independent, listener-supported alternative news source. It operates on the principle of open-source intelligence and provides podcasts, interviews, articles, and videos about breaking news and important issues from 9/11 Truth and false flag terror to the Big Brother police state, eugenics, geopolitics, the central banking fraud and more.
Corey’s Dig’s – Corey Lynn
Corey’s Digs was created by Investigative Journalist Corey Lynn for the purpose of digging for truth in a world where nothing is as it seems, then connecting the dots and presenting her findings to you. Corey focuses on larger webs and nests, and areas that are seldom covered by mainstream media. She exposes operations, oftentimes with detailed timelines, maps, and documentation to provide the full scope of what may be transpiring, and she always cites sources with links to back it up.
Mainstream media is hyper-political, slanted and generally distrusted due to its political bias and private interests. There’s a deep cultural hunger for good-faith coverage of global issues and events.
Subverse fills that void.

Gemma O’Doherty is a multi-award-winning journalist whose work has shone a light on some of the darkest corners of Irish life. Former Campaigning Journalist of the Year, her investigations have led to the reopening of a number of unsolved murder cases involving police corruption and political interference.
A Master’s graduate from University College Dublin, she was Chief Features Writer with the Irish Independent and has contributed to The Sunday Times, Daily Mail and Village magazine. She established her credentials as a filmmaker in 2016 when she released ‘Mary Boyle: The Untold Story’, a gripping documentary about a high-level police and political cover-up surrounding Ireland’s longest and youngest missing person. It has been viewed almost 1 million times on YouTube.
Her investigation into the Fr Niall Molloy murder brought about a new police probe and state enquiry. In the Irish parliament, her investigation was described as revealing ‘the biggest cover-up in the history of the state.’ She exposed widespread abuse of Ireland’s road safety laws by high-level VIPs including Ireland’s chief of police, politicians, journalists and members of the legal profession. Gemma is currently working on a number of projects including the unsolved murder of Raonaid Murray.
Her recent report on the Madeleine McCann case exposed striking errors in the BBC’s coverage of the British toddler’s disappearance.

Summit News – Paul Joseph Watson
Jeremy R. Hammond
The government perpetually lies to the public about important issues that affect us all. The mainstream media dutifully serve to manipulate public opinion, manufacturing consent for criminal policies that threaten lives and liberty. I free minds by exposing dangerous state propaganda intended to keep the masses in servitude to the politically and financially elite. My writings empower readers with knowledge to see through the deceptions and join in fight to create a better world, for ourselves, our children, and future generations of humanity.

News Media – where we use current events to explore the human condition and the state of consciousness that creates these events.

The Vigilant Citizen
“Signs and symbols rule the world, not words nor laws.” -Confucius
This timeless quote perfectly sums up the aims of this website. To understand the world we live in, we must understand the symbols surrounding us. To understand these symbols, we must dig up their origin, which is often deeply hidden in occult mysteries. In short, this site aims to go beyond the face value of symbols found in pop culture to reveal their esoteric meaning.
Real Clear Investigations
A New Destination for Investigative Journalism
Welcome to RealClearInvestigations. It is both the latest addition to the RealClear family and an original new voice in investigative journalism. Our mission is three-fold: curate the best investigative reporting found anywhere, produce our own in-depth journalism, and make this original work available to other news organizations. Our work is supported by the RealClearFoundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. (See below).
That last detail reflects a by now well-established shift in how news is financed and produced: from profit-based models to donor-supported nonprofit endeavors. The area most affected by this transformation is investigative news — journalism’s most vital work, and typically its most expensive and labor-intensive.
Since the Internet’s disruption of media revenue streams, newspapers and other legacy news outfits have cut back drastically on the kind of in-depth, long-form reporting that distinguished them in their glory days. Donors have stepped into this void, using tax-deductible contributions to finance a robust new marketplace of nonprofit news startups, many with an investigative focus. They occupy different points across the political spectrum and often partner with traditional media outlets.
Global investigative Journalism Network
The need for a sophisticated, multinational corps of investigative reporters has never been greater. We live in a globalized era in which our commerce—and our crimes–are multinational. Investigative journalists are now on the job in more than a hundred countries, following trails and connecting with their colleagues in a more organized, more profound way than ever before. They have become, in effect, the “special forces” of global journalism. To succeed, journalists worldwide need the best training and technology to do their jobs. That’s why the Global Investigative Journalism Network is here.
Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project
The last five decades have seen the dramatic globalization of organized crime and corruption, now totaling trillions of dollars every year. With the help of a “criminal services industry” — corrupt banks, law firms, registration agents, and lobbyists — criminal networks have steadily grown their markets, and the world’s most corrupt officials and tycoons easily loot, launder, and hide stolen money for future use. The result is an unprecedented transfer of wealth and global web of high-level corruption and organized crime that has fueled global inequality, the rise of extremist groups, and the decline of democratic institutions all over the world.
OCCRP believes it takes a network to fight a network.
MISSION: By developing and equipping a global network of investigative journalists and publishing their stories, OCCRP exposes crime and corruption so the public can hold power to account.
VISION: A world where lives, livelihoods, and democracy are not threatened by crime and corruption.

Capital Research Center
The Capital Research Center was established in 1984 to examine how foundations, charities, and other nonprofits spend money and get involved in politics and advocacy, often in ways that donors never intended and would find abhorrent.
From the start, CRC has exposed how those organizations are “captured” by interest groups and used to undermine Americans’ freedoms. Today, we study unions, environmentalist groups, and a wide variety of nonprofit and activist organizations. We also keep an eye on crony capitalists who seek to profit by taking advantage of government regulations and by getting their hands on taxpayers’ money. We’re not afraid to take on the Washington Establishment—Republican, Democrat, or anyone else.
CRC reports take the form of articles on this website, newspaper and magazine articles, and books. We’re also a source of information for commentators and people in the news media.
We do have a specific point of view. We believe in free markets, Constitutional government, and individual liberty. But facts are facts, and our journalists and researchers go where the facts lead them. CRC is tax-exempt and fiercely independent. We perform no contract work and we accept no government funds—not one cent. We depend on voluntary contributions to fund our important work. We are the Capital Research Center, “America’s investigative think tank.”
