Who are we ?
We are based in Europe from where we have been treated us to a ringside seat of the worst excesses that Western Governments have had to offer since the Magna Carta was written.
The Real . News is a group of British and Dutch people who spend a massive amount of time researching news and current affairs. We also waste far too much of it mining irrelevant, inaccurate, false and misleading data, not to mention downright lies, so we decided to do something about it. We share a deep loathing of political lies, spin, gerrymandering and downright corruption, and hells teeth, didn’t we get a bumper crop this year?
Politicians and journalists fill our screens and pages 24/7, telling bald faced lies straight to cameras and microphones, all the while trousering billions in cash, originally raised in taxes, only to be taken offshore, to avoid… Taxes. Even the BBC has got in on the act and is acting as the PR arm of the Tory party, with the whole nation having to pay for the privilege of being subjected to Newspeak.
I trust you can see where we are going with this?
We are not Bots, which is why we have a contact form and email address around here somewhere, so feel free to use it.
We continuously look to expand our search engine and would very much like to hear from you if you know of anyone/site/blog that is particularly direct and factual and we will be happy to take a look and build it in.
What is TheReal.News ?
TheReal.News is a search engine that has had the spin removed. We use sites that we have studied for some time and monitored for integrity and we don’t use sites that we have seen which either spin or lie their way to the front page. Everybody is biased in some way or they aren’t breathing, but Bias and Bollocks are not the same thing.
People that tell the truth are quite easy to find because they cite references and sources to back up what they say. The opposite is also true.
There is so much information out there that it is easy to be misled and waste hours trying to get to the bottom of something, and we hope to make that job a little easier.
Here at Real.News we propose to focus on the former example, while recognising, of course, that Come Dancing results are very important to a lot of people, we don’t agree that they are news, and feel they belong more in the Entertainments section (That is to say, they do not “Help people understand and engage with the world around them”)
This separation is important to everyone, for one very simple reason, after all when you step into a Polling Booth to cast your vote for a new Government, it is not really important who won last nights Strictly Come Dancing is it?
So having defined the Real.News agenda, what are the obstacles that stand in between us all, and the Truth?
Well here are 5 just for starters, Rupert Murdoch ($ 13.5 Bn.), Jonathan Harmsworth ($1.26 Bn.), Richard Desmond (£1.4 Bn.), and David and Frederick Barclay (£7.2 Bn.).
- They are all Billionaires, and they all publish what they believe to be “News”.
- They are all Right wing supporters to a greater degree (Unless they are on a mission to destabilise a Government…when they will morph into anything they need to be to get the job done).
- They are all ruthless businessmen, which extends to “ruthlessly” creating empires that can only grow bigger with the steadfast assistance of complex offshore banking arrangements to ensure little or no taxes are levied upon themselves or their businesses.
- They all revel in the power-play used to influence the public and politicians to ensure that their personal positions are left unhindered by government and especially that part of it which collects Taxes
At Real.News, we take the view that a media organisation that has the ability to change the shape and work of a government should be a participating entity within that society, and the most basic evidence to support that participation is simply paying your taxes.
This website pulls data from local, national, international and global sources. Ah yes, the wonderful world wide web. The last bastion of free speech and rapidly taking over the role of the now meaningless main stream media and almost defunct 4th Estate.
This site was created out of pure necessity, plain and simple. The amount of lies, “fake news” and with presidential aides using the term “alternative facts” with a straight face (ED:Kellyanne Conway who is credited for this totally moronic term should be shot), which is literally flooding our world by allegedly respectable “news” corporations is no longer acceptable. Maybe if the propaganda contained at least an element of truth or was at least entertaining or humourous we would understand, but even then, people deserve to know what is actually going on in the world.
We believe you will not find a better resource on the internet for actual news. You will not get results from sources like Fox News Propaganda, CNN or even the once highly respected BBC as all of these organisations clearly have an agenda. Our goal is to provide everyone with free access to information which these media giants, governments and corporations don’t want you to know.
Much more than a new search engine, The Real.News is an amalgamation of sites, blogs and varied sources of information that we have assembled and custom built into a Search Machine to supply you with facts about all the important things that are taking place in the world during the 21st century.
In a fully grown–up society this function would normally be undertaken by the “4th Estate”, that dedicated body of people who tirelessly scour current events to determine what is truth and what is fiction and spin and keep us all informed of the result by way of the printing press.
Unfortunately, information has now been monetised, and money supplies power, and power corrupts, remember the quotation by Lord Acton…?
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
But how many of us remember the next line to that quotation, for it was that line that really carried the clincher…..
“Great men are almost always bad men.”
The UK can now boast that its press is almost completely owned by 5 men, all Billionaires and all supporters of the political right wing. Every publication or broadcast news source that they sell us is therefore strongly biased in that direction. While these inmates of Tax havens great and small trot out rehashed press releases, tenuous thoughts from the think tanks and libellous literature from lobby groups, all bought and paid for by the International Bank of Dark Money.
The Real.News is specifically designed to filter out fake news, fairy stories, lies and spun brain candy that clogs up your mind with doubt and suspicion. We offer Mental Floss that you can read knowing that we have done the leg work in checking the sources of our search results.
It is clear to us that the so called main stream media is not fit for purpose.
Everybody has an absolute right to know what is going on in the world and know that the information we receive has been published openly, honestly and with integrity.
Deliberate omissions, lies, false statistics, fake claims, smear campaigns are all unacceptable if the mission statement is to be fulfilled.
There is a line in the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) charter that is supposed to help govern their behaviour, unfortunately the BBC Execs have chosen to ignore it, and hitch themselves up to the Tory party, but we like the way its worded and feel it has a definite place in the delivery of quality trustworthy news…so we nicked it…and it’s now our Mission statement.
“To provide impartial news and information to help people understand and engage with the world around them: the BBC should provide duly accurate and impartial news, current affairs and factual programming”.
This should apply to all methods of communication, whether online, on-screen or on paper and it would be nice of course if the BBC actually followed their own charter, but sadly it has since been sold to the highest bidder.
As far as we are concerned, if you don’t do that, you should be disqualified from any attempt to influence the way that society is run.to publish will not be returned as The Real.News when you search our site. You might feel this is harsh on these poor fellows…but we feel it’s the treatment they justly deserve, for they have all been found guilty of omissions, lies and incredibly spun fairy stories, and they have been doing it for decades…all the while racking up eye watering sums of money that YOU the people have paid them, in order for them to squirrel it all away offshore where it is of absolutely no benefit to the UK whatsoever. SHAME on them all.
We believe that if this approach is (was) good enough for the BBC, it ought to be good enough for any publication, whether printed or online that calls itself a NEWS paper, or a NEWS site. It is important here to understand that what some people call News isn’t necessarily universal. To some, the bombing of Yemen is News and to others, the results of last nights Come Dancing competition is News.
We try extremely hard to ensure that the information and results supplied are 100% correct.
Sadly they all seem to be taking an extended holiday in the Cayman Islands, at least the majority are, while only a few continue the good work.
In a world that allows the Press Secretary of the USA, Kelly Anne Conway to coin a phrase “Alternative truths” and get away with it, it could be argued that we get the press we deserve, but that is just a cop out.
Our goal is to provide everyone with free access to information which these media giants, governments and corporations don’t want you to know.
Most industries have some form of checks and balances protocol, to ensure that a framework of rules and regulations is in place and applied to give us a degree of certainty that the “Product” we buy does what it says on the tin.
In todays Libertarian society, rules and red tape are an anathema, and one of the best ways of dealing with them is simply to ignore them. How? Easy, just build a watchdog organisation to police the Industry, populate if with people from that Industry, fund it by that Industry and give it just enough money to throw big parties and extravagant business lunches.
This site provides a customised search engine powered by Google that has filters in place to ignore the main stream media news outlets. (Or as we like to call them, the “keep the population in the dark propaganda machine”). By using bespoke filters, it has been told where to get results from, but more importantly where not to.
Unlike the main stream medias constant stream of warmongering bile, lies and propaganda, you will not find any fake news or alternative facts in our search results. All websites, information, data and search results are fact checked and provided by independent, non-main stream media sources. Say goodbye to Murdoch and Bloomberg MSM propaganda and enjoy.
“News” seems to be a very broad term today and this is basically down to what is forced fed to us by a few billionaires. With our every increasing appetite for more, the checks and balances are now so out of tune that we now know which hairdresser a sports personality attends and nothing about the reason why wars have been raging and people starving for literally hundreds of years.
We are always looking for new sites to add to the search engine, so if you have any suggestions or would like to add your site, please let us know. Likewise, if you have any questions or concerns regarding this site or the search results, please feel free to contact us.
You can find a complete list of the search result resources on the Search Site Index page and if you want to keep up to date with the latest articles from these sites, you can follow the TheRealDotNews Twitter list
