If there were always the truth in media, there would be no need for the Truth in Media
Ever had a friend or a neighbor who waxed nostalgic about the "good old days" when "the world seemed so simple?" Who lamented the time when media always told the truth, at least as most readers thought? Who missed the days when patriotism, national pride or "motherhood and apple pie" weren't cynically snickered at by the "cool" liberal-globalists as old-fashioned ideas whose time has passed? Or who just thought that "life was more fun" back then?
Well, if you're like the millions of Americans who feel that way today; who resent being ruled by the big business elites; who have lost trust in our once democratic institutions; who want to feel proud of their country again - wax nostalgic no more! Join the readers whom Bob Djurdjevic's editorials and columns have been enchanting and often moving to action. From business leaders to academics; from homemakers to economists; from clergymen to college students; from artists to soldiers - Djurdjevic's pieces have drawn a worldwide following and support.
Truth in Media is a non-profit organization founded in 1992 by Bob Djurdjevic and a group of Americans who were concerned about the fact that the wealth of information concerning domestic and foreign affairs never made it to the attention of the American public.
Truth in Media was created to ensure ACCURATE and COMPLETE news and editorial coverage of domestic and world events. Truth in Media editorials attempt to interpret complex issues in a way which is easily understandable by most readers who do not necessarily have extensive expertise in a particular field.
Our goal is not to serve any particular section or segment of society, but to enlighten and teach all those who are open-minded and want to learn more about global affairs. We believe that the truth merits its audience, wherever it may be.
Truth in Media is a non-profit organization. Its continued existence and ability to provide detailed global news and analysis, is dependent on the voluntary contributions of its members who share our unwavering belief in freedom and human dignity.
Words to the Wise from the Wise...
"Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise." (Thomas Gray)
"At a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act." (George Orwell)
"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed, second it is violently opposed, and third, it is accepted as self-evident." (Arthur Schopenhauer)
"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds." (Albert Einstein)
"Peoples, once accustomed to masters, are not in a condition to do without them. If they attempt to shake off the yoke, they estrange themselves even more from freedom. By mistaking for it an unbridled license to which it is diametrically opposed, they nearly always manage, by their revolutions, to hand themselves over to seducers, who only make their chains heavier than before." (Jean Jacques Rousseau)
welfare of humanity is always the alibi of tyrants."
"Journalists say a thing they know isn't true in the hope that, if they keep saying it long enough, it will become true." (Arnold Bennett)
"Minds are like parachutes, they work best when open." (Lord Thomas Dewar)
Here's what some TiM readers said:
"If you suffer from the malady known as Incurable Optimism, here's a cure. Try subscribing to TRUTH in MEDIA..."
"Dear Bob: This is just a personal note of thanks, both for your loyal support, and that terrific speech at the Reform Party Convention. Let us give the New World Order types a battle they will never forget - or recover from. All the best, Pat." (Re. Djurdjevic's Reform Party Convention Speech, May 2000).
"Outstanding! I salute you. Good luck with Pat." (Re. Djurdjevic's Reform Party Convention Speech, May 2000) and "The Other Side of the Coin").
"Boy, it really feels elating to read such things written by a thoroughbred American! Your America is the America that we French have always loved - a country of freedom, pride, truth and honesty, not a leftwing warmongers' reserve. Long live France, America and Serbia!! Down with the Halfbright line!! "Populists"of all countries, UNITE!! Buchanan for President!! (if I may so wish, being a foreigner)." (Re. Djurdjevic's Reform Party Convention Speech, May 2000).
"Bob, the endurance of tens of thousands of Belgrade pro-democracy demonstrators is remarkable, perhaps unprecedented. But it pales in comparison to your own, multi-year, non-stop, unflagging perseverance in the Truth in Media cause and pursuit. If truth, justice and democracy can and do prevail anywhere on this planet in the future, your brains and perseverance will be a key contribution to the collective conscious and/or unconscious required."
"Bob, you have been the Light of Hope in the darkness of America in this 75-day struggle!" (Re. NATO's War on Serbia). "You have brought to the attention of all Lovers of Freedom and Liberty in America and the world the plight of Yugoslavia in this dreadful conflict... Your superior and exemplary journalistic work in this horrific war shines like a star in the best American tradition of the Free Press. You are the Thomas Paine and the William L. Shirer of the 1990's!"
"I just want to thank You for the great job that You did during all this madness. The only news that I could believe was yours. I wish to thank You for support that You gave to people here and me among them. It is great to know that there are people in the world who don't believe in lie-and-deny statements of lunatics on both sides, and it is the message that You succeeded to send all over the world." (Re. NATO's War on Serbia).
