Integrity Initiative And Affiliates Behind Multiple Attacks On Disobedient Media

In the weeks following the hack, major narratives pushed by legacy press in the last two years have been exposed as state-friendly propaganda, including but not limited to: #Russiagate, the #Skripal poisoning, the smearing of #Corbyn, & attacks on the #Catalan independence mvt.
In April last year, Disobedient Media reported on Joseph #Mifsud’s ties to UK intelligence figures, and other connections suggesting British influence at the heart of the #TrumpRussiaCollusion narrative, concluding:

Richard Levine discussed the role of the #GCHQ in the evolution of the #TrumpRussiacollusion narrative, explaining the context in which Trump’s election would have been seen as totally unacceptable in British establishment and intelligence circles:
Small independent outlets including Disobedient Media were among those targeted by proxies and partners of the Integrity Initiative and its parent organization, the Institute for Statecraft.
One of the earliest attacks on Disobedient Media came from the Atlantic Council’s controversial #DFRLab. The #AtlanticCouncil has been revealed to be a partner of the #IntegrityInitiative.

An even closer proxy of the #IntegrityInitiative attacked this writer in 2017, shortly after Disobedient Media covered the violent suppression of the #Catalan independence movement by authorities in Spain.

Spanish outlet El Pais then published a hit piece against this outlet, representing our coverage as a Russian disinformation front.

Never mind that all individuals with Disobedient Media are US or UK citizens with no ties, financial or otherwise, to Russia. We accept zero financial incentive from anyone, Russian or not.
We decline to so much as include Google advertising on our site, to maintain total independence. The only payment we receive are donations from readers.
"Unsurprisingly, @Grayzone has described El Pais as a specifically “friendly host” to the Integrity Initiative, and @WSWS_Updates reported that a key focusing of the #IntegrityInitiative included meddling in Spanish affairs, specifically regarding #Catalan independence."
The @WSWS_Updates wrote: "Newspapers like El País or El Mundo are exposed as conduits of the intelligence services... El País carried out a frenzied and paranoid campaign claiming that the Catalan crisis was.. the result of Moscow & its “fake news.”

El Pais’s attempt to tie this author and @DisobedientNews to the so-called “digital army of the Kremlin” didn’t so much as attempt to provide a single tie between this author or DM & Russia, much less the Russian govt.
Last year, Disobedient Media’s @with_integrity was shamelessly doxxed and attacked in a hit-piece authored by Duncan Campbell. While multiple writers have since thoroughly debunked the claims made in Campbell’s farce of an article....
Carter informed this writer that shortly before Campbell's piece was published, a photographer & journalist from the Sunday Times appeared at his residence unannounced, suggesting that the journalists in question had been tipped off as to Carter’s identity & address..
... as well as the imminent publication of Campbell’s report. Shortly after Campbell’s article was published, he received a follow-up email from Sunday Times reporter Ian Williams...
Williams is part of the ‘Russian Outer Core group of II‘ described in the Integrity Initiative scandal.
While Carter cannot confirm that Williams was the journalist that had early warning of Campbell's article, it is predictable that a reporter associated with the #IntegrityInitiative’s efforts to propagandize against Russia would seize on Campbell’s ad-hominem-drenched hysteria.
