Here’s How We Introduced Our 387,000 Facebook Fans to Steemit

MintPress News has cultivated an online presence not only via our website but also on popular social networks including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as we provide watchdog journalism that holds the powers that be accountable. As censorship increases on networks susceptible to influence by the oligarchy, joining Steemit is the natural next step in a world where information is being controlled. So here we are.

There is a mass exodus from Facebook occurring as we type this, with many curators and consumers of independent media ending up here, on Steemit. It’s as if we’re engaged an a chess game with the powers that wish to censor us, one in which they can see the board but we’re playing blindfolded. Instead of playing along, as we have done for years, we’re pushing the board of the table and investing our time and energy on new platforms like Steemit.

We’re confident in all that Steemit has to offer and are excited to carve out a niche here where we can continue to share our investigative journalism with you, uncensored, while also boosting our revenue using the Steem blockchain. That last part remains important for outlets like us - we have an amazing team of staff, writers, graphic designers, and web developers. While social media censorship has stifled the traffic to MintPressNews.com, revenue streams such as Google AdSense have been cut down by a shocking 375% in the last year.

We hope to share our original and exclusive special reporting and analysis here, and we’ve already told our 387,000 to join us on Steemit.

MintPress News is an independent watchdog journalism organization that provides issue-based original reporting, in-depth investigations, and thoughtful analysis of the most pressing topics facing our nation. Precisely the things that the oligarchy doesn’t want shared on Facebook or found in Google Search results.

We focus our coverage on issues relating to the effects of special interest groups, big business and lobbying efforts and how they shape policies at home and abroad, including American foreign policy. Through the lens of social justice and human rights, we report on how these dynamics drive our foreign affairs and impact the world.

Journalism, as defined by the first amendment, plays the role of watchdog over the government. And journalism is not what mainstream media has been doing. It is up to us to monitor our own government and others and report that back to you.

Many of our staff and friends are already on Steemit, including Whitney Webb, Darius Shahtahmasebi, Emma Fiala, Derrick Broze, Sarah Abed, Aaron Nelson, The Anti-Media, Lee Camp, Ben Swann, and Caitlin Johnstone. We are excited to bring more of our community and writers into the fold at Steemit. We recognize the harm social media outlets, like Facebook, are causing in controlling what news reaches the public, the importance of cryptocurrencies, and the amazing opportunity that Steemit can offer. The Steemit community is an answer to many of the questions that independent media has been asking for years and we’re so excited to be here.

Full Steem ahead!

Derrick Broze has 30 or so investigative reports up on the site and he hasn't investigated a thing, he only repeats what others say. Also he's not an anarchist, or he doesn't know what anarchy is despite the weak books he writes on the subject.

The wikipedia for mintpress also demonstrates they report biased middle east news, their funding is a mystery and in general everything that appears on that website appeared somewhere else first. It is a news rehashing site like zerohedge or activistpost.

Washington Post is owned by amazon and the CIA, no one who works for them has a high degree of credibility from me.

I don't know why I bother, you will just flag this with your day old lvl 25 rep shill front accounts. That's what all the disinfo sites do when questioned, @dbroze admits he doesn't operate his own account, he has damon225whatever do that for me in a servant capacity, and every post I have written on the subject has had smart ass 25 rep accounts rolling in like they are some authority.

So I have learned to just mute you, bye.

lolol.. "everything that appears on that website appeared somewhere else first" - yes that is called aggregation and it is normal. ever notice an article that says "creative commons" at the bottom? that means you can grab it and repost it somewhere else. 100% normal. maybe you should study it?

please show me an investigation that does not quote or reference what someone else has to say. or just mute me.

sounds like mr. big 52 just needs to mute everyone and go talk to himself i guess? or maybe he doesn't even operate his own account. hard to tell.

Weird how former Washington Post bureau chief and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Jon Jeter now reports for MintPress News, isn't it?

·
·

not wierd, most disinfo sites try to get anyone with half a reputation there for a few divisive opinion articles like the most recent by mr jeter.

reporting is not what he is doing, this is an opinion article like his other posts. there is a lot of money to be made from russian and other shill funding entities to make opinion articles that just rip on the united states in divisive ways. but it's not journalism, it's opinion.

you should study the difference, whoever you are puppeting this 25 rep account im going to mute.

lol @ your brain. i'll mute you right back, you're too W-E-I-R-D.

lol. the US doesn't need any outside help to drum up criticism. opinion journalism is a thing. and that's ok.

·

While we do not endorse Media Bias Fact Check, you might be interested to know, @mindhawk, that they rate MPN "high" when it comes to factual reporting.

·

Don't bother. No matter how many facts or level of detail you present, he isn't going to listen. Our little paranoid pal (who seems to have endless spare time on his hands) is busy building his very own PropOrNot list and you're already on it. We're all just Russian Trolls you know !

·

Thank you! We're so excited to be here!

welcome! i'm so excited you're here!
