New NYPD press officer co-wrote The Intercept Russiagate story that landed source in prison | The Grayzone

A co-author of a controversial report at The Intercept that landed its source in prison now works as the head of the New York Police Department’s press office.The former journalist, Richard Esposito, had embedded for a long period inside the NYPD, developing close ties to US police agencies that were clear before The Intercept chose to work with him. However, the news website apparently did not see Esposito’s cop-friendly behavior as disqualifying or even suspicious.Esposito and his longtime friend and colleague, Matthew Cole, a full-time reporter at The Intercept, were co-authors of a on...

Indict the System - Shadowproof

Indict the System - Shadowproof

Sugar-coated fantasies about the United States of America as a “post-racial society” that guarantees equality before the law are and have always been precisely that: fantasies. Much like the “sugar high” induced by consuming copious amounts of physical sugar, voracious ingestion of this saccharine social delusion leads individuals to similar political and intellectual stupor.Racism never went away. Signing a piece of paper that purports to guarantee equal rights to all citizens, regardless of race and ethnicity, does not magically whisk away the white supremacist accretions that have been...

Russian journalists accuse NY Times of stealing stories that earned it Pulitzer Prize - for second time

Russian journalists accuse NY Times of stealing stories that earned it Pulitzer Prize - for second time

The New York Times has apparently stolen its Pulitzer Prize-winning stories from Russian journalists – the same liberal anti-Putin reporters its correspondents have lionized.

The journalists who have accused the Times of taking their work without credit also happen to be the same liberal media crusaders against Vladimir Putin that Western correspondents at the Times and other mainstream outlets have cast as persecuted...

Dissident British ex-diplomat Craig Murray indicted for blog posts in Kafkaesque case | The Grayzone

The renowned British peace activist and former diplomat Craig Murray has been charged with contempt of court for writing blog posts.The suspicious indictment represents a heavily politicized, Kafkaesque case in which Murray has virtually none of his rights guaranteed. It also appears to be a part of the British government’s aggressive crackdown on the Scottish independence movement.In comments to The Grayzone, Murray described the case against him as a thoroughly undemocratic attack on free speech, and warned it may be punishment for his dissident journalism and activism exposing the UK’s...

Under US pressure, social media companies censor critical content and suspend Venezuelan, Iranian, and Syrian accounts | The Grayzone

The Donald Trump administration is ramping up its information war against Venezuela, Iran, and Syria.

Those erased from the website included heads of state, numerous state institutions, media outlets, and many average people who do not work for their governments.The supreme leader of Iran, president of Syria, and leader of Venezuela’s National...

Contra-supporting CNN pundit Ana Navarro lobbied for corrupt right-wing Latin American governments

In the era of President Donald Trump, a clique of neoconservative talking heads have rebranded themselves as moderate voices of reason.Among the most prominent self-declared “Never Trump conservatives” is Ana Navarro, a Nicaraguan American Republican strategist who has become a prominent commentator on CNN, a regular at Telemundo, and a weekly guest host of ABC’s talk show The View.Navarro’s sassy anti-Trump diatribes have earned her the adulation of the liberal self-declared “Resistance.” And as Bernie Sanders leads the Democratic primary campaign for president, Navarro has trained her...

NY Times Admits It Sends Stories to US Government for Approval Before Publication

The New York Times has publicly acknowledged that it sends some of its stories to the US government for approval from “national security officials” before publication. This confirms what veteran New York Times correspondents like James Risen have said: The American newspaper of record regularly collaborates with the US government, suppressing reporting that top officials don’t want made public. On June 15, the Times reported that the US government is escalating its cyber attacks on Russia’s power grid. According to the article, “the Trump administration is using new authorities to deploy...
