Tips Support an Independent Voice for Minnesotans

Meet Alpha News

We Bring You the Local, State, and National News the Mainstream Media Refuses to Report.

Our Mission

We are a team of independent journalists seeking out and reporting stories that the citizens of Minnesota deserve to know, the same news that the mainstream media all too often refuses to report and routinely disregards. Our dedication to uncovering the truth is persistent and unwavering.

Alpha News often features original work and stories written from confidential news tips. We encourage Minnesotans to submit ideas or content to our team of journalists by sending us an email at:
