Washington Post, again

We Demand That The Washington Post Retract Its Propaganda Story Defaming Naked Capitalism and Other Sites and Issue an Apology

Posted on December 5, 2016 by Yves Smith

As the lawyers like to say, res ipsa loquitur. Please tweet and circulate this letter widely. You will notice that our attorney Jim Moody is a seasoned litigator who has won cases before the Supreme Court. He has considerable experience in First Amendment and defamation actions. Past high profile representations include Westomoreland v. CBS and defending Linda Tripp.

I also hope, particularly for those of you who don’t regularly visit Naked Capitalism, that you’ll check out our related pieces that give more color to how the fact the Washington Post was taken for a ride by inept propagandists, particularly our introduction to our spoof PropOrNot.org site, which uses the PropOrNot project as an example of sorely deficient propaganda and shows where it went wrong, or the humor site itself. Be sure not to miss its FAQ.

We have another post today that describes how the few things that are verifiable on the PropOrNot site don’t pan out, as in the organization is not simply a group of inept propagandists but also appears to deal solely in fabrications. If the site is flagrantly false with respect to things that can be checked, why pray tell did the Washington Post and its fellow useful idiots in the mainstream media validate and amplify its message? Strong claims demand strong proofs, yet the Post appeared content to give a megaphone to people who make stuff up with abandon. No wonder the members of PropOrNot hide as much as they can about what they are up to; more transparency would expose their work to be a tissue of lies.

That propaganda site was funny.

Counter Punch, staunch critics of Putin (and many others) was listed as a Putin backed website.

Naked Capitalism pretty much dumped their purse out onto the duvet with this move. The Post should just be laughed at for being has-been chumps.

I had assumed PropOrNot was the new website RYP has been promising.

Pelton is gonna kick us out and let the yuppies in. That's where the money is. Maybe it'll be a "worlds most dangerous places and global warming" forum. That should attract the global warming lefty hordes talking about using batteries and their carbon footprint.

World's most dangerous celebrity bake-offs and body dysmorphia forum. Target those with low self-esteem and sell them products that will make them fatter and more self-loathing. It's a proven winner.

I see the long awaited apparel store is up and running! LOL, they should feature T Shirts with Guardian Articles copied and pasted onto their backs! Or, images of the COL KKW which say Mine Dance Myannmar on one side and Golden Land on the other.
