There is NOTHING this country needs more right now that truth in media and Ben Swann is just about the only person I can think of who has proven himself to have enough integrity, enough courage and enough talent to do it.
We are speaking truth to power through media, culture, and technology to empower the voice of the people toward liberty and freedom.
It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” – Samuel Adams
1. Our culture is truth deficient. The historical centers of truth have broken down.
2. The average U.S. citizen has lost their voice to the affluent with money and power.
3. Voters are disenfranchised from the party system. The rise of “independents” has simply defined what people are not, but has struggled to bring clarity to who they are.
Who is Ben Swann?
I have spent 14 years working as a journalist in broadcast news. I won’t bore you with all the details but suffice to say I began my career as a news photographer and moved up the ladder to reporter, morning anchor/reporter, prime time anchor/reporter. Along the way I won two Emmy Awards and two Edward R. Murrow awards. For a number of years I covered Mexico’s drug war. At that time, I realized that national media was not interested in the truth of what was happening in Mexico or the problems associated with the failed “war on drugs” in the United States.
In 2010, I moved north to Cincinnati, Ohio to take a prime time anchor job with WXIX and there I became the producer/writer/anchor of a segment called “Reality Check”. It was while covering the 2012 Republican Presidential primary that I began to confront the problems in the American electoral process, the stranglehold of America’s two party system and the suppression of voters’ choices by mainstream media.
In 2012, I became the first journalist in the nation to confront President Barack Obama directly in an interview about the Constitutionality of his “kill list” and the only journalist to confront Mitt Romney about the railroading of duly elected delegates during the 2012 Republican National Convention.
Thanks to a passionate following, my work has become an internet phenomenon with over 10 million video views in over 140 countries.

The moment we heard this episode of Reality Check, we knew Ben Swann was the real deal. He was the ONLY journalist reporting the truth about how Congress has literally allowed the big banks to fleece the American public.
If you want more of this! If you TRULY want to have a FREE and UNBIASED media, consider being a part of The Liberty Rising Media Project.
Journalism in its purest form is a high calling. In its worst (current) form, it is nothing more than propaganda and distraction for the masses. — Ben Swann
