About Truth be Told

MISSION STATEMENT

To counter misinformation and disinformation relating to the Middle East by providing verifiable, accurate, objective and credible reports.

 

According to a Gallup poll conducted in September 2012 the majority of Americans don’t have confidence that the mass media reports the news fully, accurately and fairly.

On January 24, 2013 Britain’s Guardian newspaper reported that that only 58% of those surveyed in Britain said they trust the broadcasters, compared with 47% for quality titles (like the Guardian) and 39% for “online news sources”, such as the Huffington Post.

Sadly, this distrust in the media is particularly justified in regard to the Arab-Israel conflict about which irrational arguments and disinformation have become commonplace, not only in alternative, but also in mainstream media. More egregiously, unsound opinions are often disguised as news items.

On both the left and right, extremism has become the vogue and rational discussion is too often replaced by the loud and the sensational.

In countering bias and misinformation, the TBT forum takes special care to maintain credibility by checking the veracity of all data presented as fact and by adhering to rational, civil discourse and intellectual honesty. Efforts are made to acknowledge and suppress known biases and to follow the facts wherever they lead.

The TBT forum comprises
