C-VINE is an acronym that stands for:

Community-Voices * Investigations * NEWS * Education.

We are a multimedia platform that is implemented on a variety of websites, social media, television, radio, YouTube and magazines/books, to give the community a voice, publish reliable news on specific topics and educate the public.


The "COMMUNITY VOICES", section of the C-VINE acronym has created group pages on Facebook that the public can join if they wish to interact directly with News Journalists, teachers of specific stations, view or listen to LIVE seminars, and have discussion with each other in the community. Be aware that these are closed groups and you must be accepted as a member of the group in order to interact. We ENCOURAGE debate, opinion and discussion here and post the CVINE NEWS links. Zero abusive talk is tolerated. We are all here to learn.

The "INVESTIGATION" section of the CVINE acronym was created to give pertinent and reliable information from respected sources about the subject matter being presented. We have a TEAM of Licensed Private Investigators, Volunteer Citizens, Retired Police, Military and Attorneys who donate their time to make certains news stories are correct and truthful.

The "EDUCATION" section is a virtual classroom, and also a series of e-magazines that will be provided in a multitude of ways, but always from proven and credible sources. Any articles, blogs, radio or videos chosen to be posted on these pages are created by the public who lease space on that particular channel, and will be clearly labeled as such. C-VINE & all participants will always honor the same spirit of trust, authenticity, and integrity. The revenue made from the Education sections will be used to fund the Breaking News channel that is placed in an irrevocable trust.

We encourage interactions, feedback and suggestions. We hope these channels will bless you as much as it has us in all the research and creation of it.


Linda Forsythe: is the FOUNDER and architect of C-VINE News because of a deep patriotic spirit and saw the critical necessity of providing information to the public that would be trusted by all. There was no better way to do that than to have the citizen's of the world be in charge of the news and education... NOT a government entity or large news corporation.

Linda created a platform and systemized the integration of News Releases, Volunteers, Social Media Groups, and Educational Channels so "We the People" could received vetted information but uncensored information.

C-VINE International is placed in a Charitable Trust to be run by the public and officials elected for administration. Supported by donations, volunteers and revenue made from renting space on the educational channels. Zero advertising is allowed.

Historically, Linda is a retired nurse.

She later worked for many years assisting in a team for marketing, PR, product development and publishing of materials for many well known authors, celebrities, speakers and successful entrepreneurs. Linda interviewed a multitude of celebrated individuals for the cover of Mentors Magazine. (No longer in business).

Mentors Digest... Walking With the Wise book series. She also was highly sought after to speak on stage, television and radio.
