The worlds first people-powered "newsroom"
Tickerd is the worlds first people-powered newsroom that lets you take the news into your own hands.
News orginizations all over the world have quite simply become propaganda machines designed to control and manipulate. This leads to fake pandemics, politics, and wars. Almost all news media cannot be trusted anymore. It is not just the organizations that you politically disagree with. It is all of them that cannot be trusted. Today, we live in a world where people live in fear of catching a mild cold, and where people have no faith in controlling there own health. This was 100% created by fake reports, and scare tactics, used by the largest corporate media agencies.
The News Tick
At the heart of Tickerd is what I call the news 'Tick'. A ticker is something that you may have seen or heard of before. Usually as a horizontal scrolling list of headlines or stock qoutes. At Tickerd.com, I've decided to turn the ticker concept into an application that is controlled by the people. We welcome anyone to create an account on Tickerd.com and to post news 'Ticks'. I don't care who your favorite politician is, or which news organization you frequent the most. Everyone is welcome, and as long as you play by the rules I won't have to censor you.
A news 'tick' posted to Tickerd.com is a recommendation of a news article or story that contains a headline, first paragraph, author name, orignal date, a weblink to the article, and optionally a link to an image from the article.
The Tickerd Newsroom
On Tickerd.com anyone can post a news recommendation in the form of a 'tick', and the poster is called a 'ticker'. You can follow any ticker that you want, and their 'ticks' will appear in your timeline feed. However, you may want to collect related 'ticks' together. I call this a Newsroom. You can create as many Newsrooms as you need using the tickers that you follow. Your Newsrooms are private to you, and a way to organize the tickers that you follow. You can put similar tickers together in a Newsroom, or you can put dissimilar tickers together. For example, you can have your favorite CNN tickers in the same Newsroom as your favorite Fox News tickers. Pitting different views against each other. The CEO of CNN may not like this, but who cares about him. It is your Newsroom.

Code Of Ethics
The core ethics of journalistic integrity on Tickerd.com is dedication to truth, loyalty to the citizens, independence, and easily verifialbe reporting. All article recommendations posted as a 'Tick' to Tickerd.com must follow our four core principles. Otherwise, your post may be censored, blocked, or removed.
1) Dedication To Truth
An ethical journalist or reporter is dedicated to the truth of a story, first and foremost. The purpose of being a journalist is to provide sound verifiable logic to a discussion in the form of a news story, where the truth is the main character. A one-sided story is simply manipulation. A journalist can have personal beliefs and bias, however, research into a topic should be unbiased, and of reliable sources. So that judgements do not taint the validity of research into a news story. There is no possible way of expressing truth to the citizens if research only looks at one angle. A journalist must be willing to put their own bias on hold when researching a subject for a news article, or for how to report a story.
An article recommendation on Tickerd.com must do the very best at telling a story from the perspective of the truth, otherwise it is in direct violation of the ethics of dedication to the truth journalism, and may be removed.
2) Loyalty To Citizens
The mission of a journalist is to provide truthful, verifiable, and sound logic about a topic to the citizens. Citizens want to be well informed about the topics discussed in the world. No citizen wants to be manipulated by a journalist, that's embarrassing. The citizens need to have the journalists follow a very strict set of ethics, otherwise it's just manipulation. Citizens are tired of the unethical journalism that has become so rampant with the largest media networks. The world is in a state where the citizens can no longer trust the news, in general. This is simply because the major news organizations are no longer loyal to the citizens. Journalism has failed the citizens, and most people are aware of this now. The only way to win back the trust of the people is to bring back ethics in journalism.
A journalistic story must be loyal to the citizens as a golden rule, otherwise the story is in direct violation of the ethics of loyalty to the citizens journalism, and the news 'tick' recommendation may be removed.
3) Independent Reporting
A journalist should have an opinion, and it does matter to the citizens. As stated before, personal opinions should not guide research into a story, or how to report a story. However, the journalist should have freedom to decide what stories matter. This is the independence of a journalist or a reporter to decide what stories should be told. There should be nothing in the way for any news story a journalist wants to cover. This is easy for an independent, but not so easy for a journalist working for a large and corrupt corporate news network. The corrupt corporate news networks have CEO's, that have no journalistic integrity, and mandate how stories are to be told. This is not independence. A trust worthy journalist must have independence with the stories they tell and how to tell them. If a non-journalist CEO mandates what stories are important or how to tell a story, then the journalist has lost their voice and the trust of the citizens.
A journalistic story recommended to Tickerd.com that has no independent thought is in direct violation of the ethics of independent journalism, and may be removed.
4) Easily Verifiable
The facts presented in a journalistic news story should be easily verifiable. A story should not have to be "fact checked", because the apperent truthfulness of the report should be self-evident. Remember, a journalist is a story teller with 'truth' as the main character, whose personal bias only guides what stories they think are important. When the truth is the main character you cannot go wrong.
A news recommendation posted to Tickerd.com that is not easily verifiable is in direct violation of the ethics of easily verifialbe journalism, and may be removed.
The Tickerd.com Platform
Tickerd.com is built upon new technology for Advanced Web Applications from Zolanet Software Systems. Tickerd.com is also a product of Zolanet and the first solution built with the Zolanet web services technology.
Not A Social Network
Socialism is a disease that has plagued the western societies and all our systems, including the internet. The building of socialist systems is not at all hidden. It is an open secret that almost everyone excepts without much thought. Society is currently choosing to be enslaved by socialist principles, and the only way we can free ourselves from this disturbing oppression is also through choice. We must choose to be free of everything 'Social'.
Tickerd.com is not a new socialist system like Twitter or Facebook. Instead Tickerd.com is a populist network system.
Populist Media Protocol
The Populist Media Protocol is an invention of Jerry Visser from Zolanet Software Systems, and all applications built and hosted with Zolanet web services are part of the populist network. At this time I cannot say too much other than the populist media is a method of connectivity through protocol instead of a propietary method (like facebook or twitter).
Companies like facebook lie to you when they say that they are the ones connecting you to other people on the net. The truth is, everyone is already connected to each other as soon as you plug in your router. The wires connect us all even before facebook can say anything about it.
