  1. Sharyl and Full Measure Team,

    —Sharyl, adding to your
    knowledge of (psychology)
    “information manipulation,”
    consider MSM’s degree of
    decline – to date – reaching
    such degradation, as to AID
    in Medical MASS Murder :

    Forwarded Message :


    “ Professor Mark Crispin Miller (MCM) teaches media studies
    at New York University (NYU) and is an expert in propaganda.
    Dr. Miller says just about everything concerning Covid was a
    “propaganda masterpiece.” This masterpiece was a murder,
    disability and sterilization program with more than 675 million
    CV19 bioweapon injections in America alone, according to the
    CDC. Could they have pulled off the murder of millions with
    the CV19 bioweapon/vax without the Lying Legacy Media (LLM)?
    Dr. Miller says, “Oh, absolutely not. . . . Let me quibble a little bit
    the term the ‘legacy media’ by which you mean the New York
    Times, the Washington Post, the TV networks and so on. It’s
    what we often call the mainstream media or maybe it’s better
    to call them the corporate media because they are less and
    less mainstream and more and more eccentric. It isn’t only
    those outlets that were all unanimous in pushing the Corona
    virus panic, the masking cult, the vaccination drive and so on,
    but also the ‘Left’ Press. I wrote for them years ago and appeared
    on ‘Democracy Now’ as a guest. The ‘Left’ Press has been almost
    impossible to distinguish from the New York Times and the rest of
    them. This helps us understand why and how so many people fell
    for this.” (more…) “

    Good Fortune,


  2. Ms Attkisson,
    What size group would be appropriate? Would church groups qualify as a possible venue. Would ticket sales be involved? …and might I also suggest a round table dialog with Tucker.

  3. 02 02 2024 Don’t use much social media – so I thought I’d write this here and maybe you’ll get the message. I had to quit listening to your podcasts. I can hear your voice but not the guest’s voice. What’s up with that?

  4. Marilynn Lieurance

    There is a Patriotic Story that Sharyl Attkisson should hear about. The American public hasn’t heard this, and it should be aired on or just before Memorial Day, so there’s still time to investigate the story is true. I don’t see where to contact her–please advise.

  5. Sharyl,
    Please interview Derek Johnson, author of “The Midnight Rider Rides Again.” He has a very interesting outlook on the next 9 months.
    Thank you.

  6. Hello, regarding recent discussion with Mark Meckler, there are some factual errors and need for clarification. May I speak with Ms. Attkisson? As co-founder of Friends of the Article V Convention, I’ve spoken first-hand with Meckler and misapprehensions still persist.
