Ben's press release- For Immediate Release:

Beginning Monday, June 10, 2013, investigative journalist Ben Swann will make history launching the largest ever attempt to crowd-source investigative journalism through his “Liberty is Rising, Truth in Media” project on www.Kickstarter.com. The Kickstarter project has a base goal of $1.25 million dollars to launch a 3 level platform to inform, engage and activate Americans across the political spectrum. Swann plans to create 100 high-end digital cinema episodes of his web show Ben Swann Full Disclosure for distribution on www.BenSwann.com and on streaming sites such as Netlfix, Hulu and Spotify. In addition, Swann will be rolling out a highly interactive, informative website that will include all Full Disclosure episodes, a forum, Ben Swann podcasts and a mobile app.

“We believe that this Kickstarter project is about more than just media, it is a genuine attempt to investigate issues the mainstream media in America is not covering. Issues like the Federal Reserve, CISPA, drone strikes, the drug war, etc, are what the American people are asking for. This will be journalism by the people, for the people.” says Swann


Ben Swann, a two-time Emmy award and two-time Edward R. Murrow award winning journalist has worked as an Anchor/Investigative reporter in El Paso Texas and Cincinnati, Ohio. His internationally known Reality Check and Full Disclosure series has been viewed over 10 million times in 140 countries.

The Black Swann.. Ben's alter-ego when he's crime-fighting at night.

He stamps out evil and injustice by bringing Truth to light.

"Looks like you crooked politicians... just got paid a Reality Check!" YEEEEAAAHHH!!!!

Ben Swann is doing it right. Credit to all the people around him that have protected his "media voice". I'd like to know who those people are as well. You know the producers, the station, the co-anchors, etc etc

Im kind of dissapointed at the total for the kickstarter. I thought the initial day would cut to at least half the goal. Its well deserved. I convinced more traditional media people using Ben's material than any other method in 2012.

That would have been nice but I think a little far fetched. This is a 45 day kickstarter so we need to push long and hard.

You aren't alone in that thinking but as I told myself, I will withhold judgement until at least 2 paydays have passed. I also made sure I donated since I know that seeing the total go up should help encourage others on the fence.

I don't think people understand you don't need to wait for payday. You can pledge now and your card will not be charged until after the Kickstarter is over and only if the goal is met. So now is the time to make your biggest pledge.

You are 100% right although I would like to think people will be responsible and ensure they have the money first and then set it aside so that it is there when the time comes for it to be paid.

Ha yeah. But you can budget for the future. That is all I am saying. I am not saying pledge money you do not have :)

Is there anyway to speed application approval? One of my local groups is talking about Swann, and I'd like to invite them, but there's no point if they won't be able to register in time.

NOte that I don't know if they're coming anyway...

I've been approving accounts 1-2 times a day, none are pending now.

Ben, Have you considered asking some high profile politicians/contacts for some public support on the Kickstarter to help get the message out?

This question is for Mr. Paul:

Congressman, I am strongly convinced that we're past the point of no return. We've seen unabashed and admitted violations of the law by the government, by whom we're told "it's for super-dupergood reasons." We were specifically warned about this. How realistic is it, in your honest estimation, that Americans wont continue to ambivalently surrender their freedoms and protections in exchange for more government? If there was a boiling point, I believe we'd have reached it by now.
