On January 7th, the country witnessed the worst cave in to right wing demands for media control in living history. If the Carlsbad caverns were renamed the Cave of Truth and suddenly collapsed the magnitude could not be greater. CNN reached an undisclosed settlement with both the family of high school student and right wing troll Nicholas Sandman and the Archdiocese of Kentucky in a case that revolved around the young Trump supporter's well publicized attack on Native Elder Nathan Phillips.

Yesterday, August 1st a lawsuit was filed in the Southern District of New York by former Fox News investigator and talking head Rod Wheeler against Fox News. The suit, which is partially constructed as an employment discrimination suit and partially as a defamation suit, alleges that one well connected Trump operative and one Fox news investigator conspired directly with the President to advance the false narrative that former DNC staffer Seth Rich was murdered for leaking DNC emails to Wikileaks.
A very small sector of the media seems concerned about “fake news.” There seems to be little unified definition of it. The center right wing of the Democratic Party has taken up the banner of “fake news” as somehow being responsible for their narrow loss an election with the lowest voter turnout in two decades. A couple of days before Thanksgiving, while most of America was cooking and preparing to shop the Tech Titans of Silicon Valley began to implement their drive for outright censorship with Facebook leading the way.
Orange Frankenstein: How Clinton, the DNC and the Media created Trump and promoted bigotry and how that backfired.
Wikileaks continues to be a goldmine. In the Podesta email files there is a strategy document so called the “Pied Piper” memo. Although both Salon and Politico found this memo first, one of the Mockingbird's researchers located it independently and editorial back checking located two tepid mainstream articles. Politico, which is implicated in this scheme, published on it two days before Salon. The memo itself is a huge smoking gun with both barrels pointed directly at the face of the public. The memo is availible for download at the bottom of this article.
Leaked emails reveal Clinton foundation and intelligence contractors working to militarize disaster relief
Should the CIA and it's contractors be the guiding force in the relief efforts after a hurricane or other natural disaster? If you think the answer is yes then Chelsea Clinton has a job for you. In the recent trove of John Podesta's emails released by Wikileaks a message has come to light indicating that the intelligence contractor Palantir has been placed in charge of the data analysis for the Clinton Foundation's Charitable action arm called the Clinton Global Initative (CGI). CGI has hundreds of programs and hundres of donors, all interlocked in funding schemes it calls commitments.
The recent trove of Democratic National Committee emails leaked by Guccifer 2.0 via Wikileaks continues to yield gold like Smaug's horde. One thread of emails shows a CNN staffer soliciting edits from both the DNC and the Clinton campaign prior to turning her work in to her editors. Maria Cardona's work background shows she receives two paychecks, one from CNN and the other from an inside the beltway PR firm. Yet she takes her marching orders from Luis Miranda, the Communications Director of the Democratic National Committee.
