What Is All Facts Matter?

is that part of my ministry devoted to a simple proposition: Facts, evidence, and data are the best weapons against propaganda.

Today's media is a toxic stew of agenda-driven propaganda. Narratives take precedence over the actual facts, evidence, and data that are the true essence of any news story. Watch any news show, or browse any news site, and you will quickly find the following:

  • Facts are mis-stated.

  • Evidence is misrepresented.

  • Data is frequently missing altogether.

  • Ideology is presented as information.

Rather than inform, today's media is designed to indoctrinate, delude, confound, and confuse.

Rather than bring people together in community, today’s media strives to separate, segregate, and divide.

Simply put, this is wrong. Media is capable of so much more than this. You deserve better than this.

The goal of

Here I present what others choose to ignore.

Where the media presents propaganda, I strive to provide information.

My goal is not to tell you what to think, but to give you plenty about which to think.

Please Comment

All subscribers are free to comment on my articles—and are encouraged to do so. Your thoughts are every bit as important as the material I present. I welcome everyone’s commentary and feedback.

My one rule on discussion threads is simply to treat everyone with basic respect and common decency. Disagreements are welcome. Being disagreeable is not.

Being bigoted and prejudicial is especially unacceptable; all comments which contain any bigoted or anti-semitic tropes, memes, language, or images will be immediately deleted—no warnings will be given and no commentary will be attached. Hatred has no place in a discussion about what is factual and I will not tolerate it in even the slightest degree.

Honesty Above All

I am human. I am going to make mistakes. I am going to misread, misinterpret, and misunderstand things.

I will make mistakes, and I will correct those mistakes—and do so honestly and openly. Whenever there is a need to substantively revise a published article in light of new information, changes will be fully disclosed, either by documenting revisions to articles or by presenting additional follow-up research clarifying and correcting previous materials.

Note: I am always striving to find the best way to present corrections and revisions to articles, so there will be some variance in how those are presented.

I will make mistakes, but they will be honest mistakes.

Come, let us learn together.
