Julian Assange has made it clear what his research has uncovered about the ‘research’ used by one of FRN’s (Fort Russ News) opponents – the billionaire blog known as ‘Vice News’. Over a month ago in December, Vice News wrote a hit piece in which Fort Russ was singularly named and singled out as a particularly pernicious outlet of ‘fake news’. In particular, their slanderous claim was based upon the ‘data’ compiled by a shadily financed method it called ‘Hamilton 68’. Supposedly a ‘score’ which ‘rates’ a non NATO non Israel compliant news source based upon it’s ‘friendliness’ to the ‘Putin and Assad regimes’.
We struck back, exposing Vice News as an instrument of the US and Zionist, Trans-Atlantic power elite. We showed that the Hamilton 68 matrix offered zero published methodological framework. In other words, as Assange as come forward to say, it’s ‘unfalsifiable’.
But we didn’t know until just a few days ago that this ‘method’ is sponsored by some of the very well known neocon war criminals, responsible for millions of confirmed murders world-wide.
In reality the majority of FRN’s reportage on the Ukraine and Syrian conflicts are from our direct leads and contacts on the ground, or they are accurate translations of foreign news-wire style news blips – a valuable resource for researchers, journalists, academics, and students, regardless of their geopolitical or social beliefs and values. In addition, we publish original opinions and analytic pieces by popular and up-and-coming writers and thinkers, relating to our spheres of interest and coverage.
‘Hamilton 68’ doesn’t track propaganda. It is propaganda. Its “Council”? Stuffed with Bill Kristol, Michael Chertoff, Mike Morell, etc. Its funding? Opaque (see its 990s). Its methodology? Unfalsifiable–Twitter users put on ad-hoc secret lists based on political view. Appalling.

Thanks for supporting FRN. Despite attempts to distort reality, we affirm that the facts do matter. A public ready to take on the psychopaths and sociopaths who run the, thankfully falling part, globalist system, must be armed with facts and relevant information.
