As we settle into the beginning of the Trump era, it is becoming more difficult than ever to decipher accurate information from misinformation and to separate lies from truth. With Facebook introducing the option to report news stories as “fake news,” and thus decreasing the opportunity for people to see the stories, it is also difficult for independent news outlets like Anti-Media to continue to reach the masses. As of this article’s publication, we have 1,991,263 “likes” and followers to our Facebook page. Yet we still struggle to reach the people who desperately need to see and read the information our journalists are reporting.
If we were to stand by and do nothing, to sit by silently as social media becomes a series of echo chambers filled with the State’s propaganda, we would be failing ourselves and failing those who have come to trust our work. We refuse to do nothing as truth becomes the first victim in the American empire. We refuse to allow the propaganda of the American elite to be the only option available to our brothers and sisters who are searching for accurate news.
In an attempt to fight this wall of lies and censorship, Anti-Media is launching a new tool for direct communication with our audience. We are now hosting a text list to send our articles directly to your phone. This means that whether Facebook attempts to suppress our work on social media or whether we are labeled fake news by the deadstream, we can still communicate the truth directly to you. The text list is free and it does not require you to give us your phone number. Signing up is extremely easy.
This is just the first step of many to come. We are dedicated to fighting the establishment media and propaganda of the State. We will use whatever technology and tools we have available to crush the rhetoric of the State and corporate class and promote the solutions that will free us from their rule. Please sign up for our text list and share the articles with your friends and family on social media. Together we can keep the truth alive and fight the spread of fake news and lies.
