Watcher's Council Nominations - Submissions In A War On Truth

First up, we have a vacancy on the Watcher's Council. If you would like to join, please visit the Watcher's site. You will find a link to instructions on how to apply on the right sidebar of the site.

Each week, the members of the Watcher's Council nominate one of their own posts and a second from outside the Council for consideration by other council members in a contest for best post. The Watcher publishes the results each Friday morning. There is never an organized theme to our submissions, but more often than not many posts cover different aspects of the same topic. Having looked at the submissions, the Watcher has commented upon the week that was and the weeks submissions:

This week The Watchers Council continues its quest to keep and eye on the weasels of the world with a set of illuminating articles. On the cusp of a historical United States election the stakes could not be higher. In the middle of this campaign is the core of the mainstream media that has apparently sold their souls in an effort to elect Barack Obama.

Not taking things sitting down an army of bloggers and professional truth seekers have taken on the task of challenging the mainstream media narrative.
