S.H.A.M.E. PROJECT: http://www.shameproject.com/
The S.H.A.M.E. Media Transparency Project takes the war against corporate trolls and media shills to a new and more effective level. Its goal is to expose and shame corrupt media figures, and make life a little harder for those who manipulate the public, degrade our democracy and help perpetuate oligarchy power, making their money by acting as covert propagandists for corporate interests.
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.
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.

SHAME's exposés have been written up by The New York Observer, FAIR, Barry Ritholtz, Naked Capitalism, we've been featured on Russia Today TV and interviewed on radio stations from Chicago to Los Angeles. We're going to get even bigger, with the support of our fans.
Support us now, and help strike fear into the hearts of corporate trolls!
