PeaceSmiths has always believed that being informed and aware is an important part of activism. One of the early PeaceSmiths/Susan Blake sayings was that “PeaceSmiths strives to turn activists into researchers, and researchers into activists.” What better place to start than with a careful study of good, news sources?

PeaceSmiths also dislikes corporate news sources, and new sources with ties to unjust monopolies and negative viewpoints. So, we discourage dependence on those regular newspapers and TV news shows, and encourage the use of alternative news sources such as…
