Who doesn't see the growing concern with the quality of mainstream news media?

Private and Corporate Interest and Funding Creates a Pressure that Restricts Speech and the Allocation of Resources Towards Projects that Conflict with the Outsider Interest.

This Patreon is the bedrock for the operations and funding of The Critical Riposte.
Crowd-Sourcing makes a major difference in accountability and creative control.

Why should you fund alternative media sources?

Open-sourced projects that come from crowd-sourced independent individuals,
especially investigative journalists,
allows for truly unfettered free-inquiry and social/political investigation.

I offer business sustainability and ethics consulting and speak on a variety of issues including energy-engineering, natural & technological hazards, and society & politics.

ABOUT ME
I've been a critical & argumentative person for most of my life; writing essays while relentlessly analyzing debate and rhetoric. When I first found myself getting serious about journalism as a vocation was when I successfully tried-out for a voice audition for a Broadcast Journalist position as an enlisted military servicemember. As a broadcast journalist with the United States Air Force, I worked with leaders, Portraits of Courage, and local base and Joint-Military events. At University, I studied language, international relations, communications, public speaking, writing and announcing, voice and diction, computer science, physics, energy engineering, criminal justice, white collar crime, cyber crime, cyber/media-law, among many other things. I am more interested in individual classes and access to research and academic ideas than degrees at this point. There has not been an interdisciplinary program that fits the needs of my interests, so I am looking at designing my own curriculum, and shopping for more effective degree programs at other schools, or creating my own degree where I have nearly finished several undergraduate paths. I firmly believe that education needs to be flexible, free, and open for future generations to navigate information-saturation-based technical challenges and societal problems. This will create a healthier marketplace of consumers and producers while equipping more individuals with the interdisciplinary skills necessary for the future of democratic citizenship and leadership.

Other than managing Critical Riposte activities,
I am a local volunteer and advocate, writer, photographer, sports/concert camera operator, and a commercial drone pilot operator (license-holder). I am occasional, but lifelong, gamer and I have an interest in pursuing more study in modeling and simulation and robotics.
