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, truthinmedia.com 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.
Swann’s website has blossomed over the years to include groundbreaking stories from fine journalists such as Derrick Broze, Robin Koerner and Sam Eaton. He pulled from some of the best journalist pools in the country to help him more fairly represent the issues that matter and to educate Americans on the background of the stories they listen to or read about every day.
Truthinmedia.com started as benswann.com, but as Swann partnered with more journalists, it became clear that the website isn’t about him, it’s about getting to the truth in media.
