We were going to wait ’til the snow melted, but a recent spate of corrupt hack-shill attacks on Team eXiled has prompted us to decide to make an immediate launch of a new project: a no-holds barred campaign to identify and expose corrupt shills and corporate trolls among political journalists and bloggers in the US.
The outpouring from readers in light of our recent exposes of people like Glenn Greenwald, Ezra Klein, Joshua Foust, Adam Serwer, Megan McArdle, David Weigel, Jane Hamsher, Malcolm Gladwell and many others has been fantastic — we know you’ve got our back. We’ll need it.
Do you have anything verifiable that we can share with the public? Send us a tip. Anonymity guaranteed.
Our computers are bulging with files on corrupt publications, bloggers and journalists, and it’s time to get it all out in the open. We’re going to launch a separate website, and a slick corporate troll tracking platform to do it. The blogosphere has a very short memory, allowing blog pundits to hide from their past shilling campaigns. But not anymore…
We will go after the usual pro-corporate/business bloggers posing under the fake ideology of libertarianism and the utterly corrupted religious and right-wing media. But most importantly, we are going to expose the wolves in the progressive henhouse.
We will name names. We have seen clear evidence of corrupted blogging and journalism by people affiliated with these media organizations: FireDogLake, Salon, Mother Jones, Atlantic Monthly, Raw Story, The New Yorker, GOOD Magazine, The Washington Monthly and many others that have so far managed to appear squeaky clean and innocent.
This won’t be pretty, and by the end of it, you can be sure there will be a lot of distractions and slander thrown at us. But someone has got to do this nasty job, and we’ve appointed ourselves to do it.
Support us now, and help strike fear into the hearts of corporate trolls.
