Ben Swann - Why I Left Fox19


I have been asked by a number of people, why risk a steady paycheck, a good job and a career that is doing so well for the " Truth in Media" project?

Our campaign on KickStarter is a risk but one that I am not afraid to take on. T.S. Eliot once said: "Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."

Not that I am putting myself in the same category as these figures, but consider this:

- What would our world look like if Martin Luther King never took a risk?
- What if our founding fathers backed away from the risk that resulted in the freedoms we currently have?
- The Wright Brothers certainly took a risk.
- So did Rosa Parks, in one moment of strength.

How about you?

Any effort that changed the course of history required risk and often required countless others to do the same. We all want honest media, including me. That is why I am taking the risk.

I ask you to join us by making a pledge today. No pledge is too big or small, your risk in this project to restore truth in media is entirely up to you. If you do, let us know by posting on the Full Disclosure Facebook page so a team member can personally thank you for standing with us. Mark Twain once wrote:

“In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.”

Best of luck to Ben

I do want to say that the slick marketing that I'm seeing (in the promotional imagery) doesn't appeal to me. But that's just me. For me, the raw quality of Democracy Now and TYT is much more practical and offers a tangible difference from establishment journalism. Now, of course, the content is mostly horrible - but the no frills style is commendable. And I doubt that anyone in the liberty movement has their level of traffic unless they are peddling conspiracies 24/7.

I have a great name for a kick ass news network that will be bigger than CNN and it may cost as much to start. It needs to be a collaboration of AJ, We are Change, David Ike, Coast to Coast, Drudge, and many others. I'm not disclosing the name just yet so it's not stolen, but it's a simple three letter acronym.
