Mission Statement
Investigate & expose corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions in order to achieve a more ethical & transparent society.

Core Values
MORAL COURAGE – Courage is the virtue that sustains all others. We choose to overcome our fears.

WE ARE ALL LEADERS – Turning people into leaders. Completed staff work. Ownership.

COLLABORATION – Best not to work in silos. No one individual is as smart as all of us.

RESILIENCE – Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. Never, ever, ever give up. We don’t let mistakes or setbacks discourage us. Pursue perfection, knowing full well you will never attain it.

MISSION DRIVEN – The best people are motivated by purpose. We are passionate and truly believe in our cause. We must be externally focused, not internally focused.

MAKE THE STATUS QUO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE – We move mountains. Failure is not an option. We do whatever it takes.

THE TIP OF THE SPEAR – We are a loss leader. We do not shy away from conflict or litigation.

Ethical Values
Rule #1 – Truth is paramount. Our reporting is fact based with clear and irrefutable video and audio content. Truth is paramount. We never deceive our audience. We do not distort the facts or the context. We do not “selectively edit.”

Rule #2 – We do not break the law. We maintain one-party consent when recording someone is inherently moral and ethical. We never record when there is zero-party consent. In areas where we are required to have consent from all parties, we seek legal guidance regarding the expectation of privacy’s impact on our right to record.

Rule #3 – We adhere to the 1st Amendment rights of others. During our investigations we do not disrupt the peace. We do not infringe on the 1st Amendment rights of others.

Rule #4 – The Zekman Test. The undercover investigations we pursue are judged by us to be of “vital public interest” and “profound importance.” The Zekman Test is our baseline. Undercover investigative reporting is necessary because, “…there’s no other way to get the story…” Whereas the Society of Professional Journalists allows for undercover techniques, if undercover techniques are necessary to expose issues of vital public importance; we believe they are not only allowed but required.

Rule #5 – We Protect the Innocent When Possible – Embarrassing private details are not to be investigated. We stay away from irrelevant embarrassingly intimate details about private citizens personal lives. We look for individual wrong-doing and judge its public importance. The irrelevant religious or sexual dispositions of our targets are not to be investigated.

Rule #6 – Transparency. Our methods & tactics must be reasonable and defensible. We use the “Twelve Jurors on Our Shoulder” rule. The work has to be done with such a degree of integrity that it can withstand scrutiny in both law & ethics. We are comfortable with transparency. We must be willing to be ready to disclose our methods upon publication.

Rule #7 – Verifying and Corroborate Stories – Evaluate impact on third parties and Newsworthiness of Statements Alone.We consistently consider the probable truth or falsity of statements, examine any reasons to doubt the veracity of underlying assertions and whether the assertions are newsworthy. When possible, we will confirm with our subjects that their statements captured on video are accurate & truthful. At the very least, we will give our subjects an opportunity to elaborate and/or respond. In all matters, we rely on the 1st Amendment to protect our ability to publish newsworthy items after our internal deliberations. On whether there is an obligation to ensure the veracity of statements made on video, 1.) consider whether the remarks may potentially impact an innocent third party. (Factors in support of releasing the content) and 2.)The Newsworthiness of the statement alone by itself. (Factors against releasing the content).

Rule #8 – Raw Video. In certain circumstances we may release the “raw” video to the press and or the public. But as a rule, we do not.

Rule #9 – Subject Anonymity. We investigate & question sources before promising anonymity. Once we confirm, we will do everything in our power to protect the identity of our confidential sources.

Rule #10 – Being Accountable. Admit mistakes & correct them promptly.

Rule #11 – We do not manufacture content. We do not put words in our investigative subjects’ mouths. We do not lead the horse to water. Our purpose is to elicit truth.

Rule #12 – With Great Power comes Great Responsibility.

  1. "The 5pm news is watched by poor black people" that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Except for everything Cameltoe Harris says.
    I am British and American politics is the funniest show I can watch at the moment. Mainly because the woke bullshit has cancelled all comedy, so it's either this or re-runs from pre 2010.

  2. Good for her!!!! fox news is not worth watching ever since they called the election! They will never admit to their censorship. OANN is the only news we tune in to now. (Until they turn on the American people)

  3. Let's be honest. Trump could have cured cancer and the Dems would have a moment of silence for cancer while the media would talk about the crisis created by doctors being out of work because cancer was cured.

  4. The "mission" to destroy this world set sail on Friday, November 22, 1633
    They established religion, education, passed law to oath to a King in 1826 and control the Government. The same names that created toxins in WW2 are the names leading the research for Gene Therapy.
    April 19, 1861 We the People lost The War of Rebellion
    April 19, 2015 an Uprising was hosted at the grave of Solomon Etting, the first game with no fans was practices, martial law was tested, and a billboard was left that said "Who dies from a Rough Ride, the whole damn system." <<<<< That is a Zionist Plan for destruction, happening since Pelosi's father launched the Exodus of 1947 for Rockefeller from the Baltimore Harbor.

  5. Yeah. The whole world has to take this attitude. The The insane corporate agendanites have to pay for their crimes against humanity. Nuremberg Nuremberg Nuremberg Nuremberg Nuremberg.

  6. There is little if any truth in the "research" done to determine audience. There is little if any truth in the reporting on any media platform. I do not watch any of it. Except for clips. I see no reason to pretend we have anything but a totally corrupted media – both news or entertainment. The vaccines are working? The only difference I see is that people are being told they can safely remove the masks. THAT is the ONLY difference!! Prove me wrong. Well, there is a difference I forgot about. People are dying from the jab and experiencing horrible side effects. Other than that are they safer? How would we ever know since the entire thing was a gigantic hoax from the start? But I am not giving any more of my money to these whistleblowers. They made bad choices; now they are making better ones. Let them fend for themselves as I did.

  7. NEJM also published one of the Surgisphere scam papers and the July 23 HCQ paper referenced by the editor comes with a massive correction too. It's very clumsily written, but from what I can gather, they failed to account for past HCQ and azithromycin use in the randomization. That's aside from the fact that there have been literally hundreds of studies on it now, with the vast majority finding positive effects (and a whole heap of evidence of systematic manipulation in evidence for those finding negative or no effects).

  8. I sure wish this was earth-shattering and not simply confirmation of the worst kept secret on earth- media corruption and agenda/narrative play. Turn 'em off folks…quit giving them your eyes and ears.

  9. As a journalist myself, it has never been about the viewer or listener, but the truth. And the truth DOES NOT have two sides as a News Director once told me. I was nearly destroyed in 2006 for taking on a political story on my blog. I was subjected to online harassment, a so-call 'ethics round-table discussion,' at theUniversity of Nevada-Reno, where someone from a New York college decided I was 'unethical' to even have my own blog, and I was termed from my position for countering the editorial desk of the publication I worked for by calling out the fact that I was no longer to write about on candidate because the other candidate complained to the editor, when in fact that candidate made it a habit to call me after deadlines and after the paper had been put to bed. No one defended me and I had to claw my way out of the hole I was knocked into all by myself. I am happy to see others getting assistance now. It has been a long, dirty battle — but now, perhaps, the truth will win out.

  10. I made poor choices in my youth, too. I paid the price for that. She should be held accountable, too, and not given hundreds of thousands of dollars. How else will she learn?
