1/ Steve Bannon went to Rupert Murdoch's Sky News Australia to plant #disinformation about Hunter Biden.

NY Times last year: "Murdoch and his children have toppled governments on two continents and destabilized the most important democracy on Earth."
2/ Murdoch is executive chairman of @newscorp, parent company of Sky News Australia, as well as several prominent U.S. media brands, including the New York Post.
3/ Murdoch-owned @nypost is ground zero of the Trump team's #disinformation smear campaign against Hunter Biden.

@washingtonpost reported: "The New York Post said it obtained the material from former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, a personal lawyer to President Trump."
4/ The @FBI is investigating provenance of the material published by the Murdoch-owned NY Post.

"The Post has published a series of stories based on emails the conservative tabloid said it obtained from President Donald Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani."
5/ "Since Inauguration Day, Mr. Murdoch has talked regularly with Mr. Trump, often bypassing the White House chief of staff, Gen. John F. Kelly, who screens incoming calls," the @nytimes reported in 2017.
6/ Rupert Murdoch is also Chairman of Fox Corp, parent company of @FoxNews. Trump uses Fox News as his bully pulpit to broadcast #disinformation, appearing regularly on @seanhannity's show, and compulsively retweeting Fox hosts.
7/ Last week, former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd launched a petition calling for a royal commission into News Corp’s conduct in Australia and its “overwhelming control” of the print media. The petition has more than 280,000 signatures. theguardian.com/media/2020/oct…
8/ How to hold Murdoch accountable for disseminating #disinformation, destabilizing democracy:

Boycott all Murdoch-owned brands. List of Fox News advertisers via @mmfa: mediamatters.org/fox-news/these…

Boycott News Corp entities. Some are guilty, all are responsible. #BoycottMurdoch
9/ Institutional shareholders of Murdoch's News Corp and Fox Corp should DIVEST from $NWSA and $FOX.

BlackRock holds both. @BlackRock CEO Larry Fink, 2018: Contribute to society, or risk losing our support, @andrewrsorkin @nytimes nytimes.com/2018/01/15/bus…

#ESG #ImpactInvesting
10/ Despite Murdoch's efforts to interfere in our elections and destabilize democracy by disseminating #disinformation, he predicts a landslide victory for @JoeBiden.

Prove him right. #VOTE #Biden
11/ NEW: "Bruce Golding, a reporter at the Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid since 2007, did not allow his byline to be used because he had concerns over the article’s credibility, the two [NY] Post employees said" about the NY Post's article on Hunter Biden.
12/ “Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch made their decision. They chose money and ideology over responsibility. And a lot of Americans are dead because of it.” By @MattGertz @mmfa #BoycottMurdoch
13/ DNI Ratcliffe, who lied on his resumé, was dispatched to Murdoch-owned Fox News to propagandize about the Murdoch-owned New York Post story about Hunter Biden that was planted by Rudy Giuliani.
#Vote #Biden #BoycottMurdoch
14/ New York Post insider tells @oliverdarcy: "All this Hunter Biden shit is being done in its own bubble. It's happening on an island within an island.” #BoycottMurdoch

Why is @YouTube partnering with fake charity @JudicialWatch to premier a propaganda movie 'ObamaGate' about debunked QAnon 'deep state' conspiracy theory?

C'mon Susan Wojcicki @SusanWojcicki YouTube CEO and Sundar Pichai @sundarpichai CEO, Google, do better. #BoycottYouTube
Dear YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki @SusanWojcicki and Google CEO Sundar Pichai @sundarpichai:

If you wouldn't premiere a Leni Riefenstahl Nazi propaganda movie, then don't give your platform to a debunked 'deep state ObamaGate' #QAnon conspiracy film.

Institutional shareholders of @Google, parent company of @YouTube, must hold execs accountable. YouTube must cancel the premiere of 'ObamaGate' movie about #QAnon conspiracy theory 'deep state.'

"You may not use @Twitter’s services for the purpose of manipulating or interfering in elections or other civic processes. This includes posting or sharing content that may suppress participation or mislead people about when, where, or how to participate in a civic process."
"First of all, we know what Trump (and the postmaster he appointed) are trying to do. We’re not allowed to talk about it at work. But we all know. He’s trying to mess with the collection of absentee ballots. Period."

@levelmag spoke with a mail carrier
"Twitter labeled two tweets from Trump making false statements about mail-in voting"

@Twitter: "the tweets 'contain potentially misleading information about voting processes and have been labeled to provide additional context around mail-in ballots.”

Laura Ingraham hosted Dr. William Grace yesterday, "from Lenox Hill Hospital."

A spokesperson from Lenox Hill told me that Dr. Grace is not employed by the Hospital. He is a private physician who has admitting privileges. His views are his own and do not represent the hospital.
Fox News: Malaria drugs touted by Trump can work against coronavirus, top doc tells Laura Ingraham

"CNN is accusing Trump of peddling 'false hope' with chloroquine; reaction from Dr. William Grace, oncologist at Lenox Hill hospital in New York City."

INGRAHAM (2:38): "Is it just false hope, or do we have at least examples in our country right now of this working, including in YOUR HOSPITAL?"

Dr. Grace responds, citing data -- but he does not address Ingraham's reference to "your hospital."

Trump retweeted @JudicialWatch today. JW clogs the courts with conspiracy theories. @TomFitton is president of Judicial Watch, classified by the IRS as a #nonprofit. Judicial Watch pays no income tax on reported income of $127 million. Fitton makes $334K a year to shill for Trump
Here are salaries for Judicial Watch executives. They pay themselves to clog the court system with conspiracy theories on Trump's behalf. IRS tax docs here:

In 2015, The New York Times reported on Whole Foods CEO John Mackey's relationship with spiritual guru, former rabbi Marc Gafni.

Gafni was accused of sexually molesting two underage girls in the 1980s.

John Mackey was chairman of Gafni's nonprofit.

More than 100 rabbis and Jewish leaders, led by New York Rabbi David Ingber, undersigned a petition to Whole Foods: “Stop Marc Gafni from Abusing Again,” citing “many, repeated and serious allegations, both public and private, former and recent.”
Sara Kabakov identified herself as the then-girl whom Gafni reportedly described as “14 going on 35.” She came forward publicly for the first time in an opinion piece in the Forward: “I Was 13 When Marc Gafni’s Abuse Began.”
