Sibel Edmonds Starts a New and Exciting Blog - Project Expose MSM

The battle to reclaim our free press has a new warrior. Sibel Edmonds,
a former language specialist for the FBI has started a new blog devoted to holding the establishment media accountable. 

Ms. Edmonds worked as a language specialist for the FBI’s Washington Field Office. During her work with the bureau, she discovered and reported serious acts of security breaches, cover-ups, and intentional blocking of intelligence that had national security implications. After she reported these acts to FBI management, she was retaliated against and ultimately fired in March 2002. Since that time, court proceedings on her issues have been blocked by the assertion of “State Secrets Privilege” by Attorney General Ashcroft, and the Congress of the United States has been gagged and prevented from any discussion of her case through retroactive re-classification issued by the Department of Justice.

Here is a link to the rest of her bio at her blog.

Her new project is called Project Expose MSM. Here is a snippet from her blog that describes her project:

We all have been tirelessly screaming about issues related to Congressional leaders abdicating their main responsibility of 'oversight.' We have been outraged for way too long at seeing 'no' accountability whatsoever in many known cases of extreme wrongdoing. I, and many of you, believe that the biggest reason for this was, and still is, the lack of true journalism and media coverage -- which acts as the necessary pressure and catalyst for those spineless politicians on the Hill and in the Executive branch. Or, at least it's supposed to. So, in our book, the MSM has been the main culprit.

Well, here is a chance to turn the tables.

At my new blog, 123 Real Change, I'm happy to present an experimental project, Project Expose MSM, created to provide readers with specific mainstream media blackout and/or misinformation cases based on the documented and credible first-hand experiences of legitimate sources and whistleblowers.123 Real Change is inviting all members of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition (NSWBC), other active (covert or overt) government whistleblowers, and even reporters themselves, to publish their experiences in regard to their own first-hand dealings with the media, where their legit disclosures were either intentionally censored, blacked out or tainted.
Yes, we will be naming names -- myself included.

This is very exciting news. While people like me can expose specific lies  or distortions in the media we don't have access to the behind the scenes story about how those lies and distortions make their way into our newspapers or onto our television screens. Hopefully, Sibel will be able to ;penetrate behind enemy lines to find out why this is happening over and over and over again.

Good luck, Sibel. We will all be watching, waiting and helping you whenever we can to help expose the shoddy work of our establishment media and to force them to explain why they have been acting more like the propaganda mouthpiece for our government and various corporations instead of being the watchdogs for the American people. We have your back and  hopefully you will have ours.
