American Alternative Media Threatens Defamation Lawsuit Against Washington Post for Red Baiting

Yves Smith – who runs the respected liberal website Naked Capitalism – has retained a top gun lawyer to sue the Washington Post for defamation unless it retracts its smear piece calling alternative media sites “Russian propaganda.”

Smith has also launched … a satirical site complaining about the lack of first-rate propaganda by the powers-that-be.

We – American alternative media who are loyal to the U.S. and no other country – fully endorse both efforts.

Unlike the knuckleheads who are attempting to shut down alternative media by lumping us in with Russian state-sponsored media, and the twits who wrote and approved the Washington Post smear piece – who apparently embrace the values of tyrants  we fought the Revolutionary War to escape – we at Washington’s Blog actually believe in American values, such as freedom of the press and other liberties.

  • What WaPo wrote was insulting and no one should ever read them. But as unfair as it is that the MSM has the power to control public opinion, isn’t slander/defamation/propaganda still considered free speech?

      Free speech yes, but if there is only one controlled and permitted narrative of what use is the word FREE?

  • Zaphod Braden

    “We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.” -David Rockefeller, Bilderberg 1991 (Baden-Baden Germany)

      Anyone thinking world domination from a structured group of elite families controlling the world is a good idea, really hasn’t thought it through. Further, they are apparently blind to the machinations used to impose it. To attempt to argue it or point out detail attempting to remove the veil is like handing a child a book without pictures and expecting them to get it. There is knowledge and there is wisdom. A man can have knowledge and be devoid of wisdom. If you attempt to argue against my point, you are the child of which I speak.

        Zaphod, good post.

      I am personally grateful to the Washington Post for listing all of websites they abhor. It has allowed me an opportunity to update my ‘bookmarked’ sites. You know – for the TRUTH. Bye, bye, irrelevant MSM shills. “Oh! What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive”

      FYI: As per Gerald Celente’s just released ‘ Top 10 Trends For 2017’ is this ditty:
      “RIP: The Fourth Estate: The daily newspaper is on its death bed. Will the mainstream media at revamp to revitalize? No longer the people’s protectorate, tanking public trust and shrinking financial resources have limited traditional media’s influence on the public. The Fourth Estate – the unofficial fourth branch of government designed to hold powerful people and institutions accountable – is no longer the domain of the mainstream media.”

    Good idea and good luck.

    Is this blog on the list because you all blogged for weeks every claim you could think of citing uncurated emails that were leaked and possibly manipulated by Russia? Probably. Complain about Trump all you want, in your own way you helped make this happen.

      “emails that were leaked and possibly manipulated by Russia?”
      Which ones were those? And in our own way we didn’t make this happen and had nothing to do with anything you moron. Manipulated by Russia – there’s the hoax. The real point to all of this?? The “fake media” is really the main stream media and it always has been…

      • justquitnow

        Which ones were those? The uncurated dump by Asange of emails that he admittedly didn’t verify. Where did that data come from? And if you’re not a writer on this blog…I’m not talking about you am I? Dick.

    How is it Israel Citizens are not treated as a FOREIGN AGENTS?

    There’s the fucking national security failure.


    Do WE THE PEOPLE really want a special relationship with a country who say’s they are a JEWISH STATE and they behave RACIST in their own country. HOW IS IT a DUAL ISRAELI/US citizen is holding office and on the intelligence committee?! Can you move to ISRAEL? no.
    Mention the latest 500 settlements and see where free speech ends. (watch out for Front end websites to write congress -they’ll intercept your messages! I been down this road already)

    The problem I got is I have JEWISH relatives. They don’t act like this!

    The people running the RACIST STATE of ISRAEL are not the JEWS I know.
    Perhaps the PEOPLE of ISRAEL are NOT RACIST, but their CORRUPT GOVERNMENT IS. I don’t know 100% here, because I can see that when you live in a settlement, your pretty much for the slaughter of others, you pretty much consent to the racism and hate. I have to admit, I neither have the stomach for this conversation and I am getting TIRED of it as well.


    This is like saying let’s go take some indian casino land and level it and build a farm there and Screw the Indians kick them out or SHOOT THEM DEAD.

    All this spying crap and they don’t catch the SIMPLE IN YOUR FACE. FOREIGN AGENTS DOMESTIC TERRORISM

    the fights in the streets financed by SOROS, yet the SARS at the bank catches JACK SHIT
