[Continued from here] Hitting only Republican targets, Andrew Kaczynski kept very busy during the 2016 election cycle.

His crew worked overtime to put a bullseye on Monica Crowley, Trump’s nominee for senior director of strategic communications for the National Security Council.

While she was busy packing up her apartment in New York, looking for a new place to live in Washington and enthusiastically embracing her new job assembling a team communication specialists for the NSC, the “K-Crew” was running an algorithm on her unpublished Ph.D dissertation from twenty years ago.

In dozens of reports that followed, among other allegations, they claimed Crowley had plagiarized large sections of her 2012 book, What The (Bleep) Just Happened?

Crowley was dealing with many issues at once. Brother-in-law Alan Colmes, a radio talk show host and former Fox News personality, had just succumbed to cancer. Her friends say the stress had become unbearable. Read all »

[Exclusive to the Media Equalizer: By Hank Jones, foreign affairs strategist and 2003-2004 Macedonia Country Director for the International Republican Institute, and Cvetin Chilimanov, English Language News Editor for the Macedonian Information Agency]


When Hillary Clinton recently fingered Macedonian “content farmers” as the root cause of her failure to win the 2016 presidential election, we noted the particular irony, having been present and deeply involved during the Macedonian parliamentary election and associated crises of last year.

After pressure campaign, Maddow loses major sponsor

June 16, 2017 press release from the Media Equality Project:


Stop the Scalpings and the Media Equality Project Claim Another Victory; withdraws ads from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show 


Boston, MA – Upon hearing that has decided to pull their ads from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, Melanie Morgan, Co-founder of the Media Equality Project, thanked the thousands of volunteers who have been calling, emailing, writing letters and cancelling their accounts.

“We’re fighting fire with fire and we’re winning! It’s so gratifying to hear understands how Rachel Maddow’s dishonest and biased reporting doesn’t resonate with their customers. Thank you to all the Stop the Scalpings volunteers who made their voices heard,” said Morgan.

Stop the Scalpings has posted the contact information for every advertiser on MSNBC’s flagship show on their Facebook page (now 103,000 strong) and on the website. Every day, volunteers focus their efforts on a different company and share their feedback.

Co-founder Brian Maloney added, “When left-wing smear organizations attempted to remove opposing voices from the airwaves, they should have known it would compel a strong response. While we’re not for censorship, we do believe moderates, conservatives and independents can choose to patronize businesses that correspond to their own values. LegalZoom has recognized this new environment.”

The Stop the Scalpings (STS) online effort launched in April 26th to counter the Media Matters campaign against Fox News host Sean Hannity’s advertisers. In a matter of days, tens of thousands of volunteers coalesced around the effort, persuading some of Hannity’s advertisers to rejoin him.

Using social media to disseminate advertiser contact information, volunteers have turned their efforts to include corporate supporters of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow; CNN’s Kathy Griffin and Don Lemon; and the Public Theater in NYC. STS has been successful in persuading sponsors of the mock assassination of President Donald Trump during the ‘Shakespeare in the Park’ series not to fund the production. Delta, Amex and Bank of America pulled their sponsorship after the campaign began.
