About Us

The Talking Democrat was created in 2016 to provide a new voice to the American public, which has grown highly distrustful of traditional news channels on both sides of the political spectrum.

We cover different subjects ranging from politics to health, science, finance and more. Our one and only goal is to provide to our audience verified and truthful information, profound analysis supported by facts while putting aside lobbyists, special interests and agendas that don’t reflect the will of most Americans.

We are still a burgeoning news organization but we are already making an impact on our readers. We expect, in days to come, to increase our reach and continue on a grander scale the work we have been for the past year and a half.
