Purveyors of truth

"Both the gatekeepers and the keepers of truth are journalists and the very first line of defense when a democracy is under attack are your journalists." 
-Maria Ressa, Rappler Philippines CEO
Journalism is at a crisis point. 

We've said it before, and we will say it again. 

As newsrooms across the globe close their doors, whether it's due to financial strain or the hammer-fist of authoritarian governments, global media and access to information continue to suffer.

Adding to this strain is the intentional dissemination of disinformation and the growing prevalence of biased and partisan "news."

The ailments of an industry cannot be fixed by one individual or one organization alone. However, at Orato World Media, we're steadfast in our resolve to assure readers that everything they read and experience under the Orato brand has been verified and represents the true story of a real person. 

Our unique flavor of content has the power to reduce the divide that keeps us apart brings people together by revealing the values we all share.

Orato can be further distilled into four words: True stories. Real people.
