President Donald J. Trump reads printed-out GotNews articles in the Oval Office, according to Politico. For a shoestring operation like ours, that’s great. But how did we get here?
In June of 2014, Charles C. Johnson started GotNews.com; it was part taunt, part social experiment. The mainstream media wasn’t doing its job, and he wondered whether the Internet community could do it better.
The answer was yes. Since then, GotNews has grown into a news organization with a full-time editorial staff, and hundreds of volunteer researchers, reporters, and sources — and the mainstream media hates us for it.
Over the last two years, with zero help from the entire mainstream, we have:
- Debunked UVA rape hoax artist Jackie Coakley and exposed the embarassing “gang rape” debacle, with our research later successfully being used in court against Rolling Stonemagazine.
- Repeatedly exposed #BlackLivesMatter as the liars, criminals, and terrorists that they are, such as here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here — always hours ahead of the slow and lying mainstream media.
- Tracked down the long-rumored audio tapes of Senator John McCain betraying his country as a captive of the communist North Vietnamese — the tapes, which were last heard by American G.I.’s in the jungles of Vietnam, were released online through WeSearchr thanks to us.
- Put the wealthy vandal who destroyed Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star with a pickaxe behind bars, after exposing all of his personal information to LAPD detectives in a record 7 hours after he first struck. He was later charged with felony vandalism.
- Exposed the Democrats’ favorite Muslim dad Khizr Khan as a charity fraudster running a fetish sex club called “Kinky Lick’s Wet Room” out of his house.
- Broke the September 2016 Manhattan bombing as an Islamic terrorist attack a full daybefore the mainstream media admitted it.
- Revealed ex-Miss Universe and Hillary Clinton surrogate Alicia Machado as an imprisoned Mexican meth trafficker’s baby mama, among other things, in record time — she immediately quit giving interviews because of us.
- Discovered never-before-seen documentary footage of a young Barack Obama whining about white people and white privilege in Kenya in the late 1980s or early 1990s. We released it online through WeSearchr, partnering with Paul Joseph Watson of InfoWars,where it quickly went viral with over 1.6 million views.
Our exclusive breaking news stories have trended #1 on Facebook, caused 24-hour media sh*tstorms, and elicited shocked tweets from President Donald J. Trump himself. Whether the mainstream media cares to admit or not, we drive the news cycle every day, and we do it on a shoestring budget.
Our anonymous sources, some of whom — like President Barack Obama’s beloved brother Malik — have gone on to go public, are the best in the world. They are even better than CNN’s, an outlet that cast doubt on us and wrongly insinuated we were “fake news” for practicing the same journalistic and whistleblower protection methods that they did and continue to do.
We’ve all lost faith in the mainstream media and its narratives. We know their lies but are confronted with a scarcity of coherent, organized, alternative truths. Our mission is to find those truths and deliver them to you, our dear reader.
We want to raise $10,000 a month on FreeStartr to fully fund our site, researchers, editors, reporters, and persecuted sources. Can you help us do it — and burn the lying media to the ground?
Yours in truth,
SUPPORTER: Get us some coffee
Breaking news runs on caffeine. At the $5 level, you are buying one of us a coffee — or oversized energy drink — each month. It may not be much, but we damn well need it and appreciate it. Do your small part to burn the lying media to the ground.
DRINKING BUDDY: Buy us a drink
Breaking news also runs on alcohol. At the $10 level, you are treating one of us to a glass of whiskey before we fall asleep at 4am. It helps us get our beauty sleep and we wouldn’t be able to focus on the scoops without it. Do your small part to burn the lying media to the ground.
ADVOCATE: Order the Uber
Breaking news can’t always wait for the broken, mismanaged, signal-free and Democrat-run DC metro. At this level, you are helping us keep up the pace as we rush from source to source. You can’t post stories underground, but you can aboveground. Do your part to burn the lying media to the ground.
FRIEND: Treat us to dinner
GotNews researchers need to eat too — at least once a day, even if they forget. Help us not forget, and not want to forget, as we’re scanning page 409 of the next lying media figure’s messy divorce records. At the $50, you’re helping feed us and our families. Do your part to burn the lying media to the ground.
WARRIOR: Cover the phone bill
Journalism means lots of phone calls. Night or day, rain or shine, at home or on the street, the phone is ringing and buzzing. It might drive us almost insane — almost — but we wouldn’t be here without the damn thing. At this level, you are giving us the tools to deliver you the scoops you need to see to believe. Do your part to burn the lying media to the ground.
KNIGHT: Pay for the flight
Sometimes we need to fly to Arkansas to meet Hillary Clinton’s rape victim Kathy Shelton. Or we need to fly #1 Trump supporter Malik Obama to D.C. Maybe we need to hit Silicon Valley to get the straight dope from James Damore — and fast. At the $250 level, you are helping us get around the country, and the world, to find the information that needs finding. You are really killing it at this level: do your part, a major part, to burn the lying media to the ground.
INNER CIRLCE: Uphold the website itself
Breaking news needs readers, not just researchers. When we find video evidence of James Comey perjuring himself or Harvey Weinstein telling Bill Clinton “I always learn amazing things from you”, our website hosting bill spikes along with our traffic. At the $500 level, you are guaranteeing that you won’t be the only one able to see our site, but that everyone else in the world will too. Do your yuge part to burn the lying media to the ground.
CHAMPION OF TRUTH: Fund the next historic scoop
The best scoops require hours and hours of dedicated research. $1000 lets us take a deep breath and focus on the not-so-obvious stuff that the liars and hypocrites don’t want you to realize. At this point, you’re basically a member of the GotNews inner circle. We thank you, America thanks you, and God thanks you.
