Bringing You Real Truth and No Lies
In the digital age, information is power. This is why various organizations, governments, and corporations try so hard to control it. It’s up to us, you and me, to stop that. Reals Project stands firm against the self interests of corpo-fascists by providing people with the power to discern fact from fiction, to spot lies and uncover truth, and to elevate ourselves from control.
Reals Project takes popular news stories and sees it from all perspectives, taking into account socio-historical and political contexts so that our readers get a bigger picture than what traditional news outlets give them. We want to free your mind.

He used this personal ethics to drive his journalism career, writing for some of the world’s most prestigious media outfits. After traveling the world for 15 years covering some of the biggest news stories of the time, he went into the academe to teach a new generation of freethinkers the rigors of journalism.
As a model train enthusiast, Sam always felt like her hobby made her weird, especially since many considered it to be a “boy” thing. But she persisted, and with the support of her amazing parents, she was able to build a massive 700 square feet model of train tracks and her hometown. This led her to discover two of her passions: urban planning and photography. She finished with a double degree in urban design and engineering, and has released two photography books detailing life in small town America.
