I spoke with former Fox TV (Cincinnati affiliate) journalist Ben Swann today via Skype about his Truth in Media project. Ben is in the process of raising funds to provide an alternative to the mainstream media. His website, http://benswann.com, gives an overview of his activities since he left Fox. We chatted for nearly an hour about how the MSM is losing audiences and that the future of news will be on the Internet.
To help Ben with his project, please visit, http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/439668500/liberty-is-rising-truth-in-media-project-0.
In an update, Ben wrote:
I am so honored by the nearly 4,000 people who have contributed over a quarter of a million dollars in just over 30 days to the Truth In Media project! Kickstarter is an all or nothing deal which means that if we do not reach the 1.25 million in 10 days (and we almost certainly will not) then your credit card will not be charged.
