The About Page says, “We are about one thing: Accurately portraying the State of the Nation. We have no political affiliation. SOTN has no other interest except uncovering and presenting the facts. SOTN commentary provides a uniquely insightful perspective rarely found anywhere else in alternative news media. SOTN strives to feature content that is of the highest journalistic quality.”
