Who We Are
We’re a group of news junkies, citizen journalists and social media analysts from all around the world who got tired of the same old repetitive stories, misdirection and rhetoric coming from most mainstream news media. Our philosophy is simple, truth through crowd reporting and talking about what should matter in this world: People.

The Mission
We’ll always do our best to report important news and current events from all over the globe by trimming the fat and focus on the facts, in the spirit of better information and knowledge sharing. We strongly believe that in this shrinking world connected by so much technology, we all have the power to change the news, and the world!

Our Promise
We vow to always remain completely transparent, nonpartisan, objective and unbiased by letting the people’s voices be heard, absolutely free of any political affiliation, corporate control and we’ll only accept to advertise ethical, fair-trade businesses, non-profits and socially conscious companies.
