What did we accomplish this year at WhoWhatWhy? Plenty.
If you’ve helped in any way to build this better institution, you can feel good about our many achievements. Because, as a non-profit entirely supported by our readers, “we” definitely includes “you.”
Now, as we close out 2015, WhoWhatWhy invites you to skip those year-end tv show marathons, and spend a little time reviewing all the things you learned that those consuming mainstream media didn’t. Here are some of the topics we tackled (with links to related articles):
• Fresh breeze on foreign affairs: we consistently provided analyses and assessments you don’t often see — on Ukraine, Syria, Russia, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Latin America, Afghanistan, and many other global hotspots. Empire and resource extraction.
• The Non-Investigation of the Boston Marathon bombings: we continue to be the leader in pointing out the many irregularities and mysteries that undermine the official account of this seminal event that contributed so much to the growth of fear and continued overreach of the security state — as well as the falsehoods continuously presented to the public. The authorities have determinedly sought to obfuscate, again and again. Of the many examples, perhaps this one takes the cake.
• Scandalwatch FactChecks: What’s the real story behind the stories that dominate the public discourse?
• With our “Picks” we brought you, daily, underexposed stories from around the world.
• Ran excerpts of breakthrough books
• Curated videos of significance
• Intrigued you with provocative, exclusive images:
• Continued to remain non-partisan but fiercely inquisitive despite pressures to be partisan (“alternative media”) or not question too much (“mainstream media”)
