Finally, a Real Reporter!

Wow, I thought actual journalism went out of style until I started watching Reality Check.

He is intelligent, unbiased, he is not afraid to tackle the tough questions and get real answers ....I like his ability to be diplomatic when someone doesn't agree with him...I believe he is one of the only people on the circuit that still knows what truth, integrity and ethics mean...I love the guy...He is a breath of fresh air....:)))

Brilliant Insight

Ben has the ability to look beyond the hype for which today's journalists seem to fall. He has that ability and conviction to look beyond to the next layer and find the factual truth instead of the one presented to him.

Always amazed

Ben is one of the few reporters out there who actually care about the other side of the coin. Instead of being an exact copy of every other reporter, he goes beyond and brings you the entire story, not just what is bought and paid for by MSM.

Ben Swann is the kind of news anchor that gives me hope that not all news is biased and spun to an advertisers adjend. I love his in depth reporting and accurate pieces. He always issues corrections when necessary and tells it how it is.

Clear and Concise news that spreads the message of truth and liberty

Ben Swann has made me beleive that there are news anchors who care more about the journalism than the paycheck. His words are never sugar coated nor has he ever lied to me. He is a fantastic man with a sharp mind. I will continue to watch every segment he puts out.

Keep up the exemplary work Ben

Ben Swann - Not For Sale!

Ben Swann tells it like it is, unlike nearly all other TV "personalities". He seems to be one of the last of the real reporters who do not cower to the media moguls. If you want the truth, watch Ben Swann!

Has respect for his profession

I have been following Ben since he started with Reality Check, and it is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best shows around. He presents his stories in a non-manipulative way (both sides of the argument) and lets his viewers come to their own conclusion. Check him out!

Watching this man is very interesting as he is a traditional journalist. He often presents both sides and their supporting arguments. Although I do not agree with him at all times, I find his analysis more thorough and unbiased than anything else I have seen in the media
