eXiled Alert! / January 3, 2012

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.

Can you help us out? (Contribute using PayPal or WePay.)

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.

Your money will help pay for FOIA requests, inevitable lawyer fees, travel costs to visit archives, and much more. This is serious work. We need your help. (Contribute using PayPal or WePay.)

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.

    What about Marcy Wheeler? WHAT ABOUT MARCY?!

    The AEC responds: WHAT ABOUT MARCY? Huh?

    Heads up on Foust and his knob gobblers [INSERT BIZARRE VIOLENT “HOMPHOBIC” FANTASY HERE]…they’re baaaaaack.

    @#24 Michael Ruppert’s “Connections” to law enforcement and the CIA were to quit them and be one of the only people with the courage to publicly call them out on their corruption. He’s become a bit of a truther/peaker conspiracy dude recently, but his earlier career of muckraking and exposing corruption is solid…or so I say.

    It would be better if we had a dictatorship. at least then there’d be a chance the guy at the top would give a shit. What we have is the Brown Nose Collective (BNC) sucking up to rich people, doing things on their own they THINK rich fucks might like. There is no command structure, only a writhing mass of protoplastic greed made up of cowardly greedy brown nosers donating their time and energy to those least needful of charity. Even the rich can’t stop the BNC. The only way to stop the juggernaut of jism gulping sycophants is to expose each and every one of the little cocksuckers.

    How do you explain Ruppert’s sudden exodus from the United States after being investigated on suspicion of having staged the “burglary” at his offices in Ashland, OR?

    No, Mikey wouldn’t lie to the police, now would he?

    And how do you explain the following Freudian slip, which is a direct quote from Ruppert’s [cough] “confrontation” of Bill Clinton’s CIA director, John Deutch?

    “…I was personally exposed to CIA operations and recruited by CIA personnel, er…who attempted to recruit me in the late 70s.” — Micheal Ruppert

    So which was it, Mikey? Were you “recruited by CIA personnel,” or not?

    As much as I’d love to see these worms squirm, is going after them really the best use of your resources?

    They’re pretty much pawns on the chess board. Go for the royalty. Get personal with specific attacks on leading ALEC members. Show people solid proof that their local ALEC politician is literally taking his orders from private business.

    please look at the connections between the washington post editorial board, and its potential ownership of company stock and its promotion of education reform and Michelle Rhee. The city has seen the biggest cheating scandal in its history, yet there is no reporting being done on this issue. Though over 100 schools were implicated in this scandal, according to USA TODAY (YES, USA TODAY did an investigative piece), Wapo sits on its hands. It did not take the baton. Please take it up. Very important. VERY!

    Why not start a website to fund all this stuff? It will probably be hard to get it off the ground and deal with all the ethical issues to start, but sooner or later money will probably flow in.

    That is unless the media/blogosphere has degraded to the point where nothing is really kompromat anymore…

    How about how the Bolsheviks made it possible for Alyssa Rosenberg (Ayn Rand) to get a first-class education at St. Petersburg University by offering free tuition for all and admitting for the first time ever 1)Jews and 2)women.
