As described at the top of the page:
For the purposes of this guide, "alternative" means that which does not represent society's mainstream or dominant ideology. However, some alternative media sources are widely read and could be considered mainstream. Both progressive and conservative resources are included, as both are arguably excluded from the mainstream media.Reasons for seeking out alternative sources?
- To gain a holistic understanding of a particular event or happening. In theory, this understanding should guide you to a more representative perspective through its multiplicity
- To question the Western perspective that holds priority in academic and media due to our Canadian geographic and historical location.
Happy Alt reading!
