REAL News for a Conservative Audience

REAL News Michiana is operated and founded by Clifton French, an award winning journalist who decided the legacy media has let the public down. For too long, leftist activists have presented themselves as journalists and ignored conservative issues. This outlet is dedicated to uncovering corruption, looking into real issues and breaking the strangle hold of information dissemination from legacy media outlets.

Clifton calls South Bend home now, but he has worked in both large and small markets as an anchor, multimedia journalist and investigative reporter. Clifton worked in Tampa, FL, for the ABC affiliate where his beat covered the FBI, ATF, Department of Homeland Security, SOCOM, CentCOM, The Tampa Police Department and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. Clifton is also an Iraq War veteran with several awards including a medal for valor for “displaying unwavering courage in the midst of enemy fire.” His work has earned him Edward R. Murrow and AP awards along with Emmy nominations.
