Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you publish stories in TheRealTruth so infrequently?
Then, we need to, well, "court" the individuals involved, much like you would a girlfriend. We buy them lunch or dinner, meet them for drinks, get to know them and let them get to know us, and attempt to build mutual trust and respect. This is a crucial step. Only if we trust our source will we publish the story, and only if they trust us will they tell it to us. If we succeed in building trust and respect, we proceed to tell them who we represent and what TheRealTruth is all about. Then we tell them that we know they are in possession of information that we believe they would feel better about if they were to get it off their chest. Sometimes the story comes out then and there, but more often it takes many more weeks of meetings and discussions before they agree to tell us their story.
The four of us are constantly pursuing such leads, typically between about three and six simultaneously. Although each of us strives to publish one new story per month, often times that is not possible. So on a good month we publish four new stories; on a bad month you see no new stories; and on an average month you see one or two new stories.
Do you pay your sources for telling you the truth?
Moreover, all of us here feel that the truth should be something that people are compelled from within to tell to others, especially if their careers or their lives might be jeopardized by revealing it. The truth should be something people need to get off their chests for the sake of their own peace of mind. As an aside, this is an argument we often make to potential sources, and one that works remarkably well. The truth seems to be something of a burden to most people.
Do the four of you write all the stories we see in TheRealTruth?
If you wish to submit a story of this nature, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The minimum information we require is your email address, but we would also like a phone number where we could contact you for clarification or additional information. Be assured that we keep this information secret, and we use a code name to refer to you.
