S.H.A.M.E. was inspired by our readers and donors, who are tired of the rampant media fraud and deception, and want some way to fight back and reclaim our democracy.
The purpose of S.H.A.M.E. is not merely to humiliate or call out hypocrisy, but to provide useful and effective tools the public can use to protect itself from being manipulated by sophisticated public relations con-artistry. So we’ll be slowly beefing up and upgrading the S.H.A.M.E. guerrilla anti-shill platform with new features to help you fight back.
Your money will help pay for FOIA requests, inevitable lawyer fees, travel costs to visit archives, and much more.
We will name names. We have seen clear evidence of corrupted blogging and journalism by people affiliated with these media organizations: FireDogLake, Salon, Mother Jones, Atlantic Monthly, Raw Story, The New Yorker, GOOD Magazine, The Washington Monthly and many others that have so far managed to appear squeaky clean and innocent.
This won't be pretty, and by the end of it, you can be sure there will be a lot of distractions and slander thrown at us. But someone has got to do this nasty job, and we've appointed ourselves to do it.
Support us, and help strike fear into the hearts of corporate trolls!
