Weinstein Story Isn’t the First the Media has “Spiked”

Many people seem shocked by claims from a former New York Times reporter who says the newspaper sat on her 2004 information exposing alleged sexual misconduct by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. (The Times told Newsweek they would have only withheld information for good reason.)

The Weinstein question aside, I can tell you that every day, in newsrooms around the country, stories are killed because powerful people know how to get them killed…(Continued)

    Stories are killed for all sorts of reasons. Tom DeLonge just came out with an announcement about his company that he is creating to study paranormal phenomena. He had a dude there who admitted that he ran a secret UFO investigation conspiracy within the US government, and said that UFOs are real. Most major media organizations are not covering it. (as well as Sharyl Attkisson)

    Dear Sharyl, the fact that you and others still have to bring up what happened to you is disgusting. It should be headline news, BUT we know how things can get buried and how the elites can spin something to make the victim look bad. I truly hope you will one day receive justice. God knows I never will, but I’ve learned to turn what happened to me into a driving force and I will continue driving until I reach MY destination. Keep up the great work.

    Sharyl: I have just finished reading your new book, “Smear”. I have known this practice has been going on for quite a while now. I just did not know to what extent. I highly recommend your book to everyone, especially to those who believe most of what they read and hear from the media. The problem as I see it is how do we stop it. I believe the Trump voters have it right. “Drain the Swamp.”

      I agree 100% with your comment about Sharyl’s book, “Smear”. I also agree 100% with your Drain The Swamp comment. President Trump unfortunately is just the very tiny beginning of ridding our government, media outlets and even business leaders of unacceptable Swamp Creatures. It took decades to create this mass of corruption. It’ll unfortunately take a while to get rid of it. I can say that I am very, very thankful that our country stood up on November 8, 2016 and said “Enough”.
