Excerpts from BenSwann.com: Ben Swann spent 14 years working as a journalist in the broadcast news industry. He began his career as a news photographer and eventually moved up the ladder to reporter, morning anchor/reporter, prime time anchor/reporter. During his long journey he won two Emmy Awards and two Edward R. Murrow awards. For a number of years he covered Mexico’s drug war as it unfolded before his very eyes. At that time, he realized the national media was not the bit interested in the truth of what was happening in the Country of Mexico or the problems associated with the failed “war on drugs” in the United States.
In 2010, he moved north to the City of Cincinnati, Ohio to take a prime time anchor position with WXIX and there he became the producer, writer, anchor of a segment called “Reality Check”. It was while covering the 2012 Republican Presidential primary he began to confront the problems in the American electoral process, the stranglehold of America’s two party system and the suppression of voters’ choices by the mainstream media.
In 2012, he became the first journalist in the nation to confront President Barack Obama directly in an interview about the Constitutionality of his “kill list” and the only journalist to confront Mitt Romney about the railroading of duly elected delegates during the 2012 Republican National Convention. Thanks to a passionate following, his work has become an internet phenomenon with over 10 million video views in over 140 countries. Meaning, his video views went viral touching the hearts of many abroad!
For approximately, two and half years he has heard day after day about media blackout, about corporations having too much control over media, about the need for honesty and truth. He has heard about how the American public is asleep and there is no one in MSM speaking about the issues of our disappearing liberties, no one to push back against the left/right paradigm. Ben has stepped up in response to what millions of Americans from the Tea Party and Occupy movements, from independents to the fast growing Liberty movement have been crying out for quite a long time. The time for change is upon us, not later, but now! Ben’s project is about restoring power to the people. It will be journalism by the people and for the people no matter what it takes! America is a free America, and we have the right to voice our opinion and our lawmakers have been placed in office by the people. It is time they listen to people like Ben Swann, a pioneer in and for the people!

We would like to take a moment and give praise where praise is due, Ben Swann is an icon in our eyes, he has challenged himself to unveil the truth of the matter and has a talent second to none. We need more people like Ben Swann to step and challenge our lawmakers and make sure everything is on the up and up! It is difficult times such as this in where we must get to the truth of the matter, it has been to long that we have all been kept in the dark to sort of speak. We need to ask questions of our lawmakers and search for viable answers and solutions to remedy our suspicions of government. We like his argument about corporations having to much control over the media, it seems to us it is all about the mighty dollar and with our economy still being in a recession we can only wonder who is really in control?
Our position is not to be defiant, however, the government’s lack of communication when it comes to certain issues such as CBD oil or actually anything involving cannabis. We have the right to know what our government is doing, specifically when it comes to CBD oil as there patients who are suffering all over America and we need to help them as much as possible. The same movements Ben has spoken of are not because people are getting together just to do it, Americans are frustrated…they want to be heard and eventually they will have a voice. Whether good or bad the people will be heard and our lawmakers themselves should step up and find out the truth! Ben has struck a vein and has certainly gained great traction along his journey but he has gathered major support as well. Legalize.co is supportive of what we are going to call the “Ben Swann” movement! Please support Ben by donating and or contributing to his project, he is the voice of the people! We have to remember we cannot do it alone, we need professionals like Ben who are honorable with high integrity to step up and be our voice!
