We started the S.H.A.M.E. Media Transparency Project back in 2012 to expose corrupt media figures, document journalistic fraud and make life a little harder for covert propagandists who manipulate the public and degrade our democracy and help perpetuate oligarchy power. S.H.A.M.E. was inspired by our readers, who were tired of the rampant media fraud and deception, and wanted some way to fight back against the corporate and military-industrial propaganda that saturated our media landscape.

S.H.A.M.E. was a wild success, focusing on personalities like Malcolm Gladwell, Charles Murray, Arianna Huffington and Jeffrey Goldberg. We got tons of press and the accolades poured in. Unfortunately, we had to put the project on ice and move onto other things for a while...

Now, in 2017, we're bringing it back. In the Age of Trump and the rise of The Resistance, we need S.H.A.M.E. more than ever.

Stay tuned for updates...
