Curated Alternative News Sources (Updated January 2021)
I could go on about how bad the mainstream news media is, but; you already know that. If you are reading this, then chances are you’re searching for alternative information because the message you’re getting from corporate media doesn’t make sense. We get it, and it’s one of the main reasons we started VLM.
However, as Mitch Kapor once said, “getting information off the internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant.” Because so much information can be overwhelming, we created a curated platform offering credible alternative news and media sources that are not beholden to corporate masters and their scripted narratives. The corporate media sponsored fact-checkers will call these sites “fake news,” but it’s quite the opposite.
As more people are learning, the corporate-owned media are the true purveyors of fake news. They are the pro-authoritarian, pro-establishments public relations division for the current control structure. The truth is, news sites that are pro-liberty or critical of the government who discuss topics not aligned with the corporate talking points are attacked for being “fake.”
These attacks are the establishment’s way of discrediting the media that are exposing the inconsistencies in their narrative. This tactic is not working anymore, and people are starting to see them for who they truly are. Here is a list of the more popular alternative news sites that fly under the radar of most people.
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.
Please Use Your Discernment & Question Everything

Our method: pseudonymous speech…
anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. it thus exemplifies the purpose behind the bill of rights, and of the first amendment in particular: to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation– and their ideas from suppression– at the hand of an intolerant society.

Mission & Vision: Like you, we are deeply troubled by the growing cultural division within America. Discussions today quickly become heated, emotional yelling matches that drive people further apart. Many of us even fear making our opinions known, lest we be ostracized, threatened, fired, or even physically assaulted. How did the land of the free and home of the brave come to this? We believe there are two significant factors: the breakdown of the education system and the collapse of the key social structures of family, community, and faith.
What We Do: Every day the staff of Intellectual Takeout come to work eager to do their part to restore and improve our great nation. We interact with millions of Americans each week, publishing numerous articles each day and promoting them through vast social media and email networks. Additionally, we host events, provide commentary for traditional media shows, and give speeches to groups of all sizes.
This is why we exist: To serve as a refuge for those who want to pursue truth, rediscover the wisdom and traditions of the past, discuss ideas calmly, and apply what’s been learned to their own lives and communities.

There is an illusion of a free marketplace for ideas and debate in American and global media, when in fact powerful platforms are deciding which thoughts, ideas, and messages the public will be allowed to hear, discuss and debate. Isegoria aims to solve big tech’s deplatforming, demonetizing, and silencing of quality independent journalists and entertainers by building ISE Media, a platform where content creators can share their work without fear of censorship and where media users have a space to discuss facts and ideas freely.
The ISE Media platform was launched in July 2020 to create a space that delivers unbiased, unfiltered information, and is committed to making the media industry radically transparent.

Need To Know News
The primary media outlets in every country currently are dominated by collectivists who believe it is their duty to present the news in such a way that the common man will have a “correct” opinion. Even those of us who are aware of this bias can fall victim to it if we have no access to the raw facts.
In most cases, the truth is available even within mainstream media if one has the time to search for it. Unfortunately, that excludes just about everyone who is preoccupied with earning a living or raising a family. The goal of Need to Know is to provide unfiltered news and commentary as an antidote to Newspeak.
