For many years mainstream media has been riddled with inaccuracies in their reporting, whether it be a result of shoddy journalism or intentional bias. For the entirety of our modern world these news organisations around the globe have had a monopoly on what the general public reads and believes. Their stories always follow an agenda, they tell you who the good guys are in wars, they tell you who you should vote for, they tell you what you can and can’t say, they even go as far as to tell you what you’re allowed to think.

Segregation in the developed world has been increasingly pushed by mainstream media, spilling stories on a daily basis about how deeply divided people are based on race, religion and nationality, when in reality it is the large news outlets that have spearheaded the vast majority of this perceived outrage everyone is apparently experiencing. Political groups on the left and the right have been pitted against each other in forever increasingly heated debates with mainstream media spewing propaganda for either side depending on which they are for.

The purpose of Common Sense Current Events is to break the deadlock of untrustworthy journalism that has littered our screens and papers for too long. Here, information will be garnered from outlets and sources of all political and national affiliations. Propaganda and biased news will be filtered out until only the facts remain which is then presented in our own articles with a focus on topics that matter in our current world.
