"Citizen Truth is ultimately a platform for the people that attracts all types, from Trump supporters to Hillary and Bernie fans and everyone else."
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) March 28, 2018
Citizen Truth is an independent and alternative media organization that has done the seemingly impossible in today’s era by creating "a news website that is supported by Trump fans, Hillary fans, Bernie fans and people who have never voted,” managing editor Lauren von Bernuth said.
In a world where news agencies are labeled left or right / Democrat or Republican, Citizen Truth features writers from all across the political spectrum. The common theme uniting all reporters is a dedication to finding the truth and reporting that accurately to readers. That is a theme that appeals to all political leanings.
"I've had people call me brave because I had a conservative-leaning editor edit progressive-leaning writers or vice versa. Our social media often erupts into passionate debates because we welcome all people from Trump supporters to Hillary supporters and everyone else. What we always stress is no name calling and dedication to the truth, not a dedication to a particular party or political affiliation,” von Bernuth said.
Citizen Truth also believes in the power of people sharing their firsthand experiences with each other. The "Your News" section of Citizen Truth is a peer to peer news platform where anyone can submit news to their peers, pending a review process. Examples of submissions are:
-A story about a Fullbright Scholar's time in Northern Uganda and her conversations with locals about forced/early marriages
-Stories from war veterans on dealing with PTSD and the creation of the Veteran Service Corps
-Feel good stories like that of an 85-year old man who has fed the homeless every week for 20 years.
About Citizen Truth: Citizen Truth was co-founded by Lauren von Bernuth and Orane Sharpe in Venice, California. On staff are reporters from around the world including in Kenya, South Africa, Indonesia, the Philippines, Serbia, Portugal and domestically across the United States.
