This page has been in the works for some time, but is crucial now more than ever. Following the election of Donald Trump as the U.S. President, the mainstream media has been forced to find a scapegoat as to why the candidate that they rallied behind lost to a racist, sexist, unpredictable billionaire. Alternative forms of journalism have become the scapegoat, and the U.S. government, with the assistance of corporate giants Facebook, Google and Twitter, as well as mainstream media outlets like the Washington Post have launched a war on what is referred to as “fake news”. This attack is really a cover for killing alternative media which does not comply with the official line of news run by the corporate media.
Seriously, there is a reason the Guardian newspaper is practically begging for donations. The mass media has lost all credibility, and for good reason.
On a side note, if you really are one of those people who questions “can I trust this source?”; or “should I read this post if the author’s ideology belongs in a different category to mine?” then you should really start to use your common sense. Not that it matters, but as well as being a published writer I am a fully qualified lawyer in two separate jurisdictions with a deep interest in human rights and foreign policy.
If that doesn’t give you some assurance that you are not dealing with an agenda-pushing hack, the source for every single claim made on this page will be hyperlinked so you can click on it yourself. Then, you should read the source, and see if further research is needed – no one is going to do the hard work for you if you want to be sure of something. From there, you can make your own conclusions. No one is telling you what to think here, merely advancing facts sourced from what is widely regarded as reputable media outlets.
I am a fully qualified lawyer in two separate jurisdictions, as well as published author. I have been interviewed on international TV as a legal analyst and author (see: https://youtu.be/vB5bGtYwD7c).
The rest is up to you.
