Orato serves as a notary public of world events

No longer will borders, pigmentation, linguistics, or political separations pit us against one another. We will make progress together through truth. Orato is Latin for speak and that is what we do every day. We speak. Better yet, we pass the mic to the powerless and to those who are actively working to change the world.

What exactly is an Orato story?

First and foremost, at Orato World Media, we insist that every single story we publish must be trusted by our readers. It is precisely this mandate that gives action to the belief that every man, woman, and child on earth has the sovereign right to be heard.

What’s more, this mandate stands in defiance to the information war happening on our planet. It counters the destructive impact of fake news and misinformation on societies.

So yes, we demand integrity, veracity, and evidence in publishing the first-person, eyewitness accounts of our subjects, in their own words.

Before a story goes live we ask ourselves and our journalists, does this pass the verifiability check? Is there evidence, court cases, news coverage, or witnesses? Are there other forms of confirmation to prove our subject is telling us their truthful experience of a world event?

In asking these questions we establish a covenant between our journalists and our readers.

Valuable background enlightens the story topic

In addition to the critical veracity check that elevates a first-person account from a simple testimonial to a real news story, we add additional information for the reader.

The sidebar called the Background section is where we share details. We provide context about the issue in question like statistics, official statements, historical evidence, and more.

When viewing an Orato story, look to the sidebar on the right for information about the story subject and to read the story Background.

One day we hope that as citizens are attempting to discern fact from fiction around world issues, they will look to Orato. They will look for true stories from real people experiencing those events.

By building a global village through the stories of real people we seek to destroy the divides which separate us. No longer will borders, pigmentation, linguistics, or political separations pit us against one another. We will make progress together through truth.

Orato is Latin for speak and that is what we do every day. We speak. Better yet, we pass the mic to the powerless and to those who are actively working to change the world.
