Welcome to your portal for truly thought-provoking stories about family, culture, current events, and entrepreneurship.
Today’s media landscape is filled with an unbelievable amount of information. And most of it–let’s face it–just plain sucks.
When you’re not being manipulated outright by political hacks, you’re being gaslit by political hacks and operatives disguised as objective journalists.
The bottom line is that pushing a narrative is not the same as telling a story. And placing a political agenda before the truth is the work of propagandists, not journalists or true storytellers. We aren’t in the propaganda business, so we promise to always be up front with our opinions and where we get our source material. Moreover, we want to make all the topics we discuss easy to absorb and apply to your everyday life.
What does this mean for the content you’ll see here?
This means that if you see a review on our site, the writer actually used the product. Moreover, we don’t base our business model around affiliate commissions or paid native guest posts. So you know that we are not viewing our readers as marks or products in themselves.
In short, your long-term trust is more important and valuable to us than your short-term money.
The fact is, there is nowhere one can currently turn to get information that you can be sure hasn’t been affected by perverse incentives of one kind or another. Either you’re being sold something, manipulated into swallowing an agenda, or funneled into believing something about yourself, your neighbors, or your world that is distorted beyond all recognition.
That’s where we come in…
Prattle is an online publication dedicated to cutting through the horrible incentive structures of today’s modern internet universe, and bringing you stories that are relevant to your life.
We do not have a political agenda, we are not selling you anything, and we are not trying to get you to take any particular action after reading our stories. We feel that by doing this, we are able to bring you honest and unpolluted information that you can actually comprehend and sort through in a productive and meaningful way.
We support and maintain a culture of free speech. As purveyors of quality online content, we feel that open and honest dialogue is sacrificed to the great detriment of all of those who wish to live in a free and open society.

Discussion is at the core of this commitment to open conversation, and we will do our very best to moderate our comments with these values in mind.

Our authors hail from many different backgrounds and areas of expertise. We do not censor or manipulate any content that our writers choose to talk about. Our editorial role is limited to aesthetic and quality control considerations.
