(Mainstream Media in Trouble as Alternative Media Comes Together – By
The mainstream corporate media is visibly dying-out in the United States and around the world — and their problems are about to get worse: Anti-Media just rolled out its new project, “The Homepage of Independent Media.”
Anti-Media’s new homepage is the new destination for independent thinkers looking for real anti-establishment news sources free of corporate bias and the fake news of the mainstream media. “The Homepage of Independent Media” has partnered with The Mind Unleashed and dozens of other hard hitting news and information sites from across the political spectrum to create a “one-stop-shop” for news junkies to find the stories, articles, videos and other content they won’t see anywhere else. We no longer have to hope that Facebook’s notoriously biased algorithm decides to show us news from the outlets we already follow.
But wait, it gets better. Anti-Media has not only created a new home for the rapidly growing independent media movement, it has put you in charge of deciding what’s on the homepage. With Anti-Media’s new Reddit style algorithmic upvote/downvote system, you tell the site which stories should be on the front page using their social content curation system.
There’s even more. Once you create an account on TheAntiMedia.org using just an email and password, you will be able to submit news stories yourself in the “MY NEWS” section of the Anti-Media homepage. Any news articles, videos, social media posts, or even photos you think are newsworthy can be posted. Anti-Media’s editorial team will quickly check the link’s factual accuracy, make sure it’s less than two days old (or relevant to current news), and then it will be live. With a few upvotes from other Anti-Media readers and friends, the link you submitted could be on the front page of Anti-Media! People who work with independent news outlets who aren’t official Anti-Media partners yet can also submit links in the “MY NEWS” section to get their content on the homepage.
The Internet is the Wild West of information and Anti-Media’s “Homepage of Independent Media” is here to help us make sense of it all. By bringing together dozens of independent news outlets from across the political and ideological spectrum, Anti-Media aims to create an ever-improving ecosystem of reliable factual news and information that challenges the status-quo. In the face of encroaching government censorship and algorithmic bias by Internet gatekeepers Facebook and Google, now is the time to join The Mind Unleashed and support the independent media movement by making TheAntiMedia.org your news homepage.
Welcome back to the longtime Anti-Media readers — and greetings to our new ones!
Anti-Media’s evolution from a fiercely independent news blog to The Homepage of Independent Media is now fully operational. Our journey started as our founder Nick Bernabe’s small anti-establishment Facebook page in 2013 and grew into millions of social media followers and hundreds of millions of visits to our website. By combining our strengths of broad spectrum anti-establishment journalism, strategic partnerships with dozens of premier independent media outlets, and a huge network of activists and free thinkers from across the political spectrum, we’ve created a new homepage for the independent media movement.
Here’s how it works:
First you’ll need to create an account. We don’t ask for anything but an email address and a password. You can further customize your profile if you choose to. We can’t see your password, and your privacy and data is safe with us. Sign up by clicking here. Confirm your account by checking your email inbox (if you don’t see the confirmation email, check your spam folder).
Now you’re ready to start helping us co-create the Homepage of Independent Media.
The first thing you need to know is that the entire website is based on an algorithmic social ranking system. You’ll see the up and down arrows on the front page next to all the news links and on the content itself.
Don’t think of these upvotes and downvotes as “like” or “dislikes,” think of them as ranking the news’ importance. Upvote if you think it’s important, downvote if you think it’s not. The more upvotes a piece of content receives, the higher up on the page it will rank — eventually making it to the top of the homepage.
Also included in the social ranking algorithm are comments and time. The more upvotes and comments a piece of content receives in the least amount of time, the higher it will rank.
Explaining the three columns: OUR NEWS, THEIR NEWS, and MY NEWS
OUR NEWS is the Anti-Media editorial team’s original content. These are articles from our staff writers including original reporting, analysis, opinions, videos, and other content that we produce in-house. Also featured in this section is imported content from our independent media syndication partners.
THEIR NEWS is content from some of the top independent media outlets on the internet. This is your go-to place for finding hard-hitting news, analysis, opinion, and views from across the political spectrum from established and trusted sources from around the web.
MY NEWS is where users of the Anti-Media site can post links to content that they find important.
Anti-Media has a vetting process to filter out inaccurate and/or old information, and we will approve or deny content as quickly as possible. Not all content will be approved. We will deny content that is inaccurate, out of date, misleading, or outright misinformation. Older content will be approved if it is relevant to a current event. Most corporate media content will not be approved unless it comes from an independent voice or opinion piece hosted on a mainstream outlet. We will deny content from outlets with reputations for spreading misinformation. We WILL NOT deny content over political views. Publishers of independent news content can post all of their new links in the MY NEWS section. Early Anti-Media users with a lot of activity on the site will be considered for potential moderator roles.
