What We Are
Citizens Outpost was founded in 2017 in an effort to provide a voice for independent news, not beholden to any special interests. A lot of news sites tend to construct their narrative from either preconceived notions or with inherent bias. Although Citizens Outpost has no limitation to where sources are gathered from, articles which remain neutral on a topic and are solely fact-based are preferred. This is in no way to stifle opinion, but to foster an environment where the reader can come to his or her own conclusions about the truth. Articles which promote a particular opinion or political slant shall be labeled as such to provide discretion for the reader.
Q: What’s the deal with the snake logo?
A: The rattlesnake logo is an off-shoot of the Gadsen Flag which has become known as a symbol of revolutionary freedom and liberty. We felt it best represented the perspective that Citizens Outpost takes when it comes to accurate reporting of the news. Hence, our slogan is DON’T TREAD ON TRUTH!
Q: How can I be certain these articles aren’t fake news?
A: Recent press coverage has brought the fake news epidemic to the spot light. One of the most important things to keep in mind about this topic is to clearly define what ‘fake news’ actually is. News reports come from a wide variety of sources which often times include biases or slants that skew the facts. Although this is an issue that has been going on for a long time, this doesn’t quite fall into the category of ‘fake news’. News reports that include factual errors or outright lies definitely qualify as fake news, whereas biased commentary on facts fit better into an opinion article category. We at CitizensOutpost strive to disseminate information that provides fact based reporting. News sources are checked prior to publishing and we have a high confidence in the reliability of these sources, although of course it is always possible for errors to fall through the cracks. This is where the majority of mainstream media fail to overcome: once factual errors are discovered, they should be corrected and/or redacted as needed in an integral effort to promote the full extent of the truth. This is journalistic integrity. If any articles found on our site contain outdated or inaccurate information please feel free to send us an email.
