You Read It Here First, so Please Support Me, So That I Can Continue Beating the MSM!

Yesterday, I scooped the MSM on the indictment of alleged Prince George's County serial killer Jason Thomas Scott. Granted, I beat the Washington Post by only 55 minutes, and ABC by three-and-a-half hours (according to Google), but how many journalists do you hear of beating the big boys, armed with only a modem, a landline, and dedicated reader-researchers?

But I’ve done better. In the spring of 2007, the MSM felt compelled to put out a fire that I had started. In Knoxville, Tennessee, an attractive young white couple, Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, were carjacked and kidnapped, and then both gang-raped, tortured, and murdered in unspeakable fashion. Meanwhile, all of the suspects were black. The MSM did what it always does in such situations: They conspired to cover it up. But the cover-up failed, and so the MSM went to “Plan B”: Demonize anyone denouncing the crime as a “white supremacist.”

The media's implication was clear: It is a.o.k. for blacks to commit such atrocities against whites.

In March of that year, Jared Taylor, the editor-publisher of American Renaissance asked me to cover the story. I did such a bang-up job that a producer at CNN’s The Paula Zahn Show plagiarized me, while simultaneously denouncing me indirectly as a “white supremacist.” (God forbid, they should mention me by name.)

My biggest scoop in that American Renaissance story was in tracking the false rumor then [and still, in October, 2011!] burning across the Internet, according to which the killers had sexually dismembered the victims, cutting off at least one of Channon Christian’s breasts and Chris Newsom’s penis, a myth that some people are repeating to this day, back to neo-Nazi/white supremacist/FBI informant/whatever Hal Turner. And that is what CNN plagiarized from me—along with an error I’d made!

1. The screen capture shot CNN showed of my May 14 story acknowledged that the scriptwriter had read my story, while CNN’s “reporter” intoned, “Sites with white supremacist agendas made their own headlines”;

2. No one prior to me had tracked the genital mutilation rumors back to their source; and

3. The script even plagiarized an error I had made in my May 14 article, in identifying Turner as living “in New York.” He lived in New Jersey. I corrected that error in a revised, expanded version of the article that American Renaissance published in its July, 2007 issue.

As I asked at the time, “If American Renaissance [and by extension, me] has a ‘white supremacist agenda[s],’ what does that make a reporter who plagiarizes American Renaissance?”

(Rusty Dornin played reporter on the show, but probably had nothing to do with writing the script. Newsmagazine “reporters” are mostly actors; the real reporting is typically done by off-camera producers, the way Mary Mapes was responsible for 60 Minutes’ Memogate Hoax.)

Three [four] years later, the MSM is still suppressing the case I dubbed the Knoxville Horror, and I’m still writing about it, with the support of my VDARE editor, Peter Brimelow. I want every adult in America to know who Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom were.

My biggest scoop on the MSM to date was by almost eight years, in the case of the government-leftist-media conspiracy to railroad patriotic scientist Dr. Steven J. Hatfill for the deadly fall, 2001 anthrax attacks. But don’t take my word for it. Read what my VDARE colleague and former boss, Kevin Lamb, had to say about it in April [2010], upon the publication of an only seven-and-a-half-year late “exposé” by The Atlantic:

VDARE.COM contributor Nicholas Stix deserves recognition for his early investigative work uncovering one of the most scandalous smear campaigns in recent memory: the sliming of bioweapons researcher Steven Hatfill….

The just-published May issue of The Atlantic magazine contains The Wrong Man, David Freed’s powerful 8,600-word account of Hatfill, whose life was turned upside down by federal authorities, journalists, a Vassar professor, and a left-wing scientist after five anthrax-laced letters were mailed in the wake of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, eventually causing five deaths.

But Stix had sorted this smear out back when the campaign to convict Hatfill was in full swing.

Thank you, Kevin.

Unfortunately, courageous editors like Jared and Peter can’t pay me enough to stay on the job. And so, I must turn to you for help. Please hit the gold PayPal button at the top of this page, and send a donation my way.

Thank you for your generous support.
