Ever since our launch just a few months ago, the SHAME Project has been running like a buzz saw through the media establishment . . . it just needs support from readers and fans like you to keep up the pace. Can you help? Contribute using PayPal or WePay.
SHAME'S outing of Newsweek correspondent Megan McArdle as a Koch-linked conservative peeled back another a layer of the billionaires' PR machine, sparking well-known finance expert Barry Ritholtz to declare: "Any publication that publishes anything in the future under her byline is off my reading list." NPR and Adam Davidson had to run for cover after we unearthed their corrupt sponsorship deal with one of the most criminal subprime lenders in the country. And our exposé of Malcolm Gladwell as a tobacco industry-trained propagandist ripped a huge hole in the credibility of The New Yorker's celebrity journalist.
SHAME’s exposés have been written up by The New York Observer, FAIR, Barry Ritholtz, Naked Capitalism; and we’ve been featured on RT television, and interviewed on radio stations from Chicago to Los Angeles.
