Ben Swann – Filling a Market Void

When Ben Swann started the Truth in Media project in 2013, he quit his job as an award-winning journalist on local Cincinnati television. He quit because he felt that he could use his journalistic talent to report on issues and stories that effect all Americans, but that the mainstream media largely ignores. Swann believes that the mainstream media in the United States fails to paint an accurate or honest representation of current events, and he feels his website, presents a more complete picture of the issues and stories that affect us. The market void for the truth is wide, and Swann intends on filling it.
