Don’t Buy Exxon’s Fable Of The Drunken Captain

Today, March 24, the 32nd Anniversary of the Exxon Valdez disaster will be commemorated with the re-telling of lies. The official story is, “Drunken Skipper Hits Reef.” Don’t believe it.

Remembering Bloody Sunday 1965
Selma, Alabama

Today we commemorate Bloody Sunday. Linda Blackmon Lowry, the youngest marcher, was beaten so badly by cops on the Pettus Bridge, she was put in a hearse, presumed dead. She took me over the bridge with fellow marchers from 1965, Marcia Edwards and Sen. Hank Sanders. Knowing the danger, Martin Luther King asked a congregation in Selma, “Who will walk with me?” Today, I met with our attorneys on the suits we are re-invigorating in… READ MORE

During Wednesday’s trial, Rep. Stacey Plaskett (D-VI) laid out the evidence the Palast team first broke in Consortium News: The sponsors of the January 6 rally at the Ellipse repeatedly… READ MORE

Why were Capitol Rioters Allowed to Leave a Murder Crime Scene?

On January 6, during the riots and the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. a police officer was murdered when he had his head crushed by a fire extinguisher. In the aftermath, it was astonishing that the police did not seal and secure the Capitol and identify, if not arrest, everyone leaving. Why were criminals allowed to simply … READ MORE
