(Natural News) In the aftermath of Natural News being subjected to one of the most brutal censor-and-smear campaigns in the history of the internet, I’ve recorded a “thank you” podcast that’s now available (see below).
In this podcast, you’ll not only hear why your support for the principle of free speech is so important, but also new details about who was really behind this attempted take down of Natural News.
There were many indy media websites and activists who helped support Natural News, including SGTreport.com, NoMoreFakeNews.com, SHTFplan.com, AllNewsPipeline.com, SteveQuayle.com, Dave Hodges from TheCommonsenseShow.com, Robert Scott Bell, Ty Bollinger from The Truth About Cancer, Erin Elizabeth from HealthNutNews.com, David Wolfe and many others. Yet, to the astonishment of many, InfoWars apparently did not think it was important to stand up for Natural News… and that’s a very sad realization about whatever is happening at InfoWars. When I was threatened and told to publicly destroy InfoWars, I stood my ground and said “No.” But when I was attacked and blacklisted, InfoWars did nothing to help defend Natural News. They didn’t publish a single article in our defense. Very sad. Not very smart on their part, either.
“Many independent news sites decided to ignore Google’s censorship of Mike and Natural News. They, too, failed to establish a firm defense of free speech,” writes Jon Rappoport, who hosts for Alex Jones and InfoWars. Notably, he was not being critical of InfoWars in particular, but rather making a more broad statement about the entire independent media.
“Some of these independent sites, knowing what Natural News has done to attack conventional medicine and the medical cartel, decided to stand back and remain silent, because they consider medical information a holy of holies. They will attack major media on many issues, but The Medical isn’t one of them. They’re afraid to explore this area, discover shocking truths, publish those truths, and then open themselves to heavy criticism. Then, of course, there is the simple fear that Google will censor them, too. Google, the all-powerful Ministry of Truth. Big Brother.”………………
