About Us

Disobedient Media started as a loose collaboration of half dozen independent researchers in 2016 under the lead of Editor in Chief William Craddick, who started the civil investigation into human trafficking labeled by the media as "Pizzagate."

We seek to provide well sourced research analyzed with a fresh perspective. Our mission is to return integrity to the field of journalism. A profession which in recent years has become more about show business and narrative creating rather than objective reporting of the truth. We hope to provide Americans and people worldwide with true, factual news that media organizations elsewhere neglect or refuse to offer.

Disobedient Media is working to bring honesty and integrity back into journalism. We will work hard to always stay independent and deliver articles void of hidden agenda.

To do this though, we have to ditch the conventional funding methods and rely on our readers direct support. For now we started a GoFundMe and are humbly asking you to donate
