The Unsold

In a time of media blackout, when news media and journalists have been transformed into spokes-vehicles of the rich and powerful and propagandists of the corporate elite, these are the true, unintimidated, courageous voices who speak truth to power.  They are the unsold callers of bullshit, revealers of lies, masters of reason, fighters for justice,  seekers of truth, providers of context, breakers of double-standards, and bastions of hope.

A-Z

Abby Martin

Abby Martin

No one gets you up in arms quite like her. Her vivid depictions of current events make your skin crawl and your blood boil. If you’re not going do anything about it, at least stay pissed with her. She’s amazing, check out all the stuff she’s done.

Amy Goodman

Amy Goodman

She has been the voice of resistance for decades. She is a reference to all of us, a bastion of strength and independence. She is tireless. She is fierce. She is a superwoman. She was the only voice that kept us sane during the nineties. We love you for that, Amy.

Cornel West

Cornel West

In a world that is increasingly divided, Dr. West has the incredible ability to bring empathy and inclusion to every issue and towards every person, even if that means putting up a fight. He reminds us that, in fact, we are all one.

Craig Pasta Jardula

Craig Pasta Jardula

A truly honest person who digs through all the filth and deceit of politics to give us a clear view. We give it a zero chance that this guy will ever sell out, BUT, if he ever does, we’re pretty sure he would share the spoils with everyone else.

Fiorella Isabel

Fiorella Isabel

Fiorella has risen among our top favorites.  She is Joan of Arc, minus all the religious delirium. It’s time to be angry and she is not letting us down.  She warns us about idolizing leaders, but we don’t mind idolizing her.

Jeremy Scahill

Jeremy Scahill

Brilliant, articulate and passionate journalist who has repeatedly exposed the hypocrisy of the world’s geopolitical game through his impeccable investigative work. Check out his podcast, “Intercepted,” which leaves no stone unturned.

Julian Assange

Julian Assange

The persecution of journalists is a serious threat to press freedom and freedom of speech. We have to free Assange, now. This should be pissing us off every single day. Let’s fight for his (and our) freedom, just as he fights to expose the truth.

Katie Halper

Katie Halper

We love her because she is so authentic and naturally funny. She’s had some of the best tweets in twitter history, through which she reveals her relentless sense of justice and sharp humor. She is the embodiment of a true New Yorker!

Killer Mike

Killer Mike

When he takes the mic, it is not only his powerful voice that resonates and inspires generations old and new.  He is a God of Thunder, firing words like lightning bolts against economic injustice, and his depth and substance contrast the empty platitudes of other great orators we know.

Kyle Kulinski

Kyle Kulinski

He makes it seem so easy to shape solid, un-dismantlable arguments. It helps that he’s on the right side (yes, that’s the left). He presents issues in a complete package, with argument, counter argument, rebuttal and conclusion, all-in-one, wrapped up with a ribbon.

Matt Taibbi

Matt Taibbi

Two roads diverged in a wood and he chose the one that has made a difference. Maybe he had no choice, though, because there was no other path for him other than being true to himself: intellectually honest, brave, investigative, and very real.

Medea Benjamin

Medea Benjamin

Her voice soars high and her message stands tall even as she is dragged away horizontally by goons in suits.  Look out for Code Pink – these fearless ladies are on the front battle for peace and social justice.  We absolutely love and admire them.

Michael Brooks

Michael Brooks

We just happen to believe this man will be carrying the torch for a long time into the future. Maybe it’s wishful thinking on our part, because we want him to keep on talking and refreshing us with his vast knowledge of world affairs.

Michael Moore

Michael Moore

His new project, a podcast called “Rumble with Michael Moore,” is awesome. He has a hypnotic, soothing voice, which reflects his genuine, good-hearted soul. His authenticity and empathy have a real power to break barriers.

Mike Figueredo

Mike Figueredo

Mike is so prolific and has so much material under his scope, he must be dedicating every waking hour to beating down the mainstream bullshit narrative. Come to think of it, we’ve never seen his legs. Does he ever get out??

Nina Turner

Nina Turner

Vice President Nina Turner has… Ok, we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Nina Turner has the voice and the sense of justice to lead a good fight and really advocate for the people. Plus, there is a certain aura around her that will excite and mobilize masses.

Norman Finkelstein

Norman Finkelstein

We are always cheering for Dr. Finkelstein. Not that he needs it, since he wins every argument by being a walking encyclopedia, footnotes included. He has dedicated his years to exposing the wrongs that he may never see made right in his lifetime.

Rania Khalek

Rania Khalek

Hey, Establishment, do you feel threatened by Rania?  Well, you should.  As she laughs to your face, it seems so easy for her to reach the obvious conclusions that you try so hard to obscure, when “it’s so stupid” and “it’s so crazy.” And she is so right!    

Saagar Enjeti

Saagar Enjeti

He presents his arguments with impressive clarity, objectiveness and precision. Whatever his position is, he conveys truthfulness and real conviction. The only times we think he’s lying is when he describes himself as a conservative!

Seymour Hersh

Seymour Hersh

Yes, it’s him. It’s as if Mohammed Ali were still around these days fighting for the title in the ring. He’s still fighting, he’s still fierce, and he can still carry the title. A real heavy-weight champ in journalism.
