You have lots of alternatives. MSM is like McDonalds it appears everywhere and has enough money behind the brand to get its name out in every way possible but, you dont have to eat there. It sure is probably the most popular fast food chain in the world but it doesnt mean it is the only food you can eat.
Lots of independent/alt media sources out there and many of them with several decades of experience behind them, particularly the pioneers of this area of news reporting. Its just that people have got wind of these sources recently because they feel compelled to seek contrasting perspectives due to how little things make sense. Most of these sources have been around for a very long time though and not just for COVID-19. Some going back to the late nineties and dawn of the millenium. Its not as much of a niche market as people think. Its actually a significant portion of news consumed hence why the establishment has funded its own intelligence apparatus to the tune of MILLIONS to counter these sources.
What is the most hilarious about all this is the fact many are citizen journalists. Just people off the street reporting the news as it happens. They are not protected behind gated communities with private armies and corporate support. Some are mainstream journalists turned alt media journalists after experiencing first hand the biases and corruption in MSM. Most dont have fancy qualifications and private schooling, although some do. For the most part these are just your average people who setup a website one day or did videos on YT and became a hit. And yet the establishment fears average people so much they have to counter their articles.
Thats like you reporting on a copper beating up a loud mouthed youth in the town center, recording it and then publishing it along with correlated stats and relevant factual information and the establishment seeking to target you like you were an enemy nation state with its own multi million pound propaganda machine.
Lots of alternatives exist. You are visiting one good example now. Lockdown Sceptics is what would you call an alternative news source. Alternative meaning it counters mainstream coverage with contrasting information (verifiable most importantly) in order to attempt to challenge a bias present in a particular covering of events.
