Alternative News Project

“We live in an era where the rulers fight to control what you believe, using technology that would have made Goebbels drool. We live in an era where independent thought is now a radical act in itself.” –Duncan Roads, NEXUS Magazine, 2014
Duncan Roads has created a new online venture: the Alternative News Project. I encourage you to check it out.
Here is Duncan in his own words…
What I said in 2014 is the reason why I have now created the Alternative News Project (ANP) (twitter). It’s not as a device to fight the current mainstream-manufactured reality, but instead it’s a vehicle for like-minded, independent thinkers to come together in a sharing of knowledge and viewpoints.
From my travels, I see a growing realisation across our societies of an ever increasing disconnect between the mainstream media and what is really going on in the world. As a result, there is a need for a global point of contact to serve all of us who are seeking truth and transparency of information, which no longer comes from either our elected governments, or the media.
The Alternative News Project provides independent thinkers around the world the ability to send and receive alternative news and information from anywhere across the globe.
I have called it a project, as it is not just about information, but the building of a global community through the distribution of that information, which will bring us together in a common purpose.
Instead of endless searches on the ‘net, ANP will bring you the news, every day, right across the spectrum of hundreds of non-mainstream news topics from health to geopolitics, ancient mysteries to self-sufficiency and from science to spirituality.
However, the real key to this project is each of you, because by receiving information you can inform others and by you contributing your knowledge to us, we can broaden our scope of services around the globe. As such, the ANP is designed to be a community based interactive news and information project by the people for the people.
Welcome to the ANP and the adventure to which you are all invited.

I really enjoy your work. Just read your article “Alternative News Project”. Great project. I would like to make you aware also of sigTRUTH.com. It’s a customized search engine that exclusively returns content from the alternative media. I launched this back in October. It was developed out of my frustration as an Internet marketing consultant who knows how are it is for the indepenant journalist / researchers to get seen in the normal search engines. I hope you like it.
WOW! Great idea! I just hope that the new secret bill “Net Neurality” will not affect this great project. Well, if it does, we can always try to get it on television like I have suggested on previous post: (https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2015/02/18/my-response-to-bob-livingstons-article-islamic-terror-and-the-great-deception/
The Truth About ‘Net Neutrality’
Perhaps I’m overly wary (and I haven’t looked at the website), but doesn’t something like this, claiming to be one-stop shopping for news and information, just become another remote centralized control point to filter information and direct opinion towards a pre-determined viewpoint? I guess it depends on how much editing (censoring) is involved.
I agree. I wanted to like this site but it’s clearinghouse for everything format is suspect. Not to mention its emphasis on the global community meme.
Unfortunately whenever the global word gets trotted out these days in any context in alternative media that aims to be ” inclusive” it almost invariably turns out to be a controlled op, honey trap.
I am more than happy to be proven wrong in this case. But my first impression is not trusting sadly.
Oh boy! I can see some people here, being sceptical about “centralized control point to filter information and direct opinion towards a pre-determined viewpoint” and about the “emphasis on the global community meme”.
I can understand your point of view, but isn’t that what the Elites have done to create this miserable world we now live in? It seems to be quite effective!
I think we can remain individuals even if we share a common goal.
After all, like the creators of this site said, “It would be a vehicle for like-minded, independent thinkers to come together in a sharing of knowledge and viewpoints.” We don’t have to agree with everything it will produce.
For once in a life time, a project “by the people for the people”
Let’s not throw away the baby with the bath water. Let’s give it a chance!
“We don’t have to agree with everything it will produce” — point well taken; personal discernment always prevails.
As founder of the ANP – I’d be thinking the same as you guys in terms of being suspicious – but then I would look at who is behind it – and where they come from, and who they are connected to. I am grass-roots back to the 70s. I own and edit NEXUS Magazine, which is also not connected or affiliated to religions or political groups. All I can say is that the ANP is for real – we are NOT part of some agenda to control or centralise. Yes, we do omit some items from the millions of rants and raves out there – yes we know what a Sorcha Faal article looks like and what his various sites are. It is good to be cautious – but this project is grass-roots born and bred – and if you are unhappy about what stuff is not being put onto the newsfeed, just tell us. I created a non-profit foundation to own and run it – which means we are transparent. Even David Icke didn’t open up ThePeoplesVoice.tv in this way. All I can ask is that you watch and give me feedback if concerned. This project is for YOU guys – so let me know what we can do better. Thanks
Thanks for doing the site, it sounds like a great idea. Personally, I would like to get a sampling of what it inside before registering for a single category, and especially before purchasing. It would be nice to see an example of an article in each of the categories first, and maybe see some headlines.
Thanks, and I’ve had similar feedback from others, so we are currently discussing a ‘landing page’ with a selection of current news items (interactive) and a couple of buttons which enables any visitor to see what they are getting prior to any registration decision
What’s the difference between mainstream news propaganda, and alternative news propaganda? The answer is of course: there is none.
Magazines like NEXUS while oftentimes getting things right also function as a place where all sorts of weak conspiracies converge and merge into one. It’s a place where gullible new age people feel right at home, rest assured that none of their sacred cows will be killed in the process. It is a place where pseudo science and pseudo history and an over-arching belief in super villains, evil geniuses, and nefarious alien races all swirls together creating a kaleidoscope of worthless sci-fi drivel.
For every myth they rightly debunk(like climate change) they promote at least one more just as absurd. As long as the myth isn’t “mainstream” it will be welcome at the ANP.
My only comment here, and what you say is largely true by the way, is that I feel it is important for for people to see what they are missing on ‘mainstream’ news outlets. I see it as showing people the other side of the coin in many instances, plus showing them other information they had no idea even existed. People are going to believe what they choose anyway – and I would argue that the more options they have to consider about a subject, the better.
Point of clarification on the above – when I say ‘what you say is largely true” – I was referring to your opening sentences, and not the rest, lol. I am comfortable with what I have selected to publish from amongst the mass of info out there that does however, match your description 🙂
“People are going to believe what they choose anyway – and I would argue that the more options they have to consider about a subject, the better.”
Exactly! Spot on! It’s hard to believe that some people are satisfied with viewing only one side of the coin.
