    Default SuperStation95 takes Snopes.com to task (2017)

    It's a little tricky choosing where exactly to post this but here should be appropriate, I think.

    The published story itself although tragic is also interesting and may even have been shared on the forum at the time it 'broke'.

    However, here, I am more interested in the updates that follow the main article as it does reveal media dirty tricks and even from supposedly alternative news sites such as Snopes.

    I am wary of Snopes anyway but some may find these comments from the Anti News Network site moderators/editors really quite intriguing.

    SuperStation95 are standing their ground, and it doesn't appear too shaky either.

    UPDATE – MAY 10, 2016 10:00 PM EDT–
    The web site SNOPES.com has issued a declaration that our story is some sort of hoax, that we are somehow NOT a radio station and attributed the story – and this web site – to a former FBI National Security Intelligence Asset named Hal Turner, whom she smears as a “White Supremacist.”

    This is not the first time SNOPES.com has made accusations against us simply because we have been the exclusive source of politically-incorrect news. And while we stand-by our stories in every regard, this barrage of attacks by SNOPES.com is becoming libellous.

    We address the SNOPES.com accusations one at a time:

    1) No aspect of our story above is a hoax. What Snopes.com seems to take issue with is the existence and content of a suicide note which was revealed to us by the NYPD. The person from NYPD who gave us this information did so after trying to get two other New York Media outlets, (one TV, the other a newspaper) to publish the story and was rebuked within minutes by media contacts who said “we won’t touch this with a ten foot pole.” The fact that the NYPD now claims “no note was found” does not surprise us at all; NYPD has very close ties with the feds and the feds have an intense interest in concealing or discrediting the information it contained.

    2) According to the FCC Licensing Bureau, 95.1 FM in New York City is the HD-4 frequency for WNSH 94.7 FM as licensed by the FCC as shown here

    3) Our story was written by our News Room staff, not anyone named Hal Turner.

    4) Mr. Turner was formerly a paying customer of this radio station from October 7, 2015 thru March 30, 2016. He bought air time from us to air his personal radio show “The Hal Turner Show.” Finances caused Mr. Turner to cancel his programming on our radio station and continue his show onWBCQ International Shortwave, where he is on the air live from 9-11 PM every Wednesday evening. Mr. Turner’s web site is:HalTurnerShow.com . He is welcome to return to our airwaves if his finances improve.

    5) SNOPES.com claims Mr. Turner is a “white supremacist.” In reality Mr. Turner worked for the FBI from 1993 – 2008, with his TOD as the Joint Terrorism Task Force from 2003-2008. His job was to infiltrate white supremacist groups to thwart violent criminal acts by such persons. This information came out when the Obama Administration betrayed Mr. Turner in 2009 and arrested him for writing in 2009, what the government PAID HIM $3,000 TO SAY on DATELINE NBC and FOX NEWS CHANNEL just four years earlier in 2005! After three trials (two hung juries) Mr. Turner was Bankrupted by legal fees, was appointed a public defender, who threw the case, resulting in Mr. Turner’s conviction. For SNOPES.com to smear Mr. Turner as a “White Supremacist” when federal court records show the exact opposite, is a prime example of the utterly shoddy research and reporting provided by SNOPES.com

    The criticism and SNOPES.com outright falsehoods about this story, and others, have been written mostly by:

    Ms. Kim A Lacapria, Age 37 (born Mar 20, 1979)

    39 Cockonoe AVE

    Babylon, NY 11702-1901

    Those of you who are offended by this type of journalistic misconduct, may wish to contact Ms. LaCapria in a peaceful, lawful, non-threatening and non-violent manner to complain about her shoddy journalism. PLEASE DO NOT HARASS THIS IGNORANT PERSON and PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE do not make any threats or commit any intimidation. None of us need that and it will only result in serious legal trouble.

    Ms. La Capria can be reached at: Tel. (516) 422-7943

    (516) 422-7494

    and/or (631) 691-3415

    If you prefer e-mail, you may contact Ms. LaCapria at

    anang209@aol.com or
    kim@socialnewsdaily.com

    You may be interested in knowing that at some point – and perhaps to this day — Ms. LaCapria was employed by FACEBOOK with a contact telephone number (in the past) of: (650) 308-7300

    In closing, we at SuperStation95 work very hard to get real news that the public can make use of. We do not filter our news based upon political correctness. We stand-by this story and all the stories we write and hope that you, the reader, can hear the “ring of truth” in our reporting, as we continue to uncover exclusive information and report the facts. To that end, we have now “exposed” the journalistic writing of Ms. Kim LaCapria as “FALSE” and hope that Snopes enjoys a dose of its own medicine.

    Ms. LaCapria and others at SNOPES, put themselves out in the public domain and hurl criticism and accusations at us and many other fine people. Since they put themselves out in the public domain, they are public figures who can be publicly criticized. Our goal with this update is to achieve that. Anyone else at SNOPES who performs similar acts against us can expect the same treatment.

    UPDATE – MAY 12, 2016 1:16 AM EDT–
    Despite our clear rebuttal above, yet another “Journalist” chose to attack us and this story, repeating the misstatements by Snopes.com and adding some new outright falsehoods of their own!

    In a RAWSTORY.com article entitled “Right Wing Loon turns agents suicide into Conspiracy Hoax” writer Travis J. Gettys claims this story is a hoax that “essentially recycles last year’s “Jade Helm 15” conspiracy theory . . ” and goes on to claim that:

    SuperStation95 “. . . is neither a radio station nor a news site, . . .”
    [This] website [is]” linked to white supremacist — and former Fox News regular — Hal Turner”
    “Superstation95 is linked to neo-Nazi Hal Turner, who frequently appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program”
    “begging Americans to “rise up” and overthrow the U.S. government before it’s too late.”
    With regard to item #1 above, shown in our Rebuttal to the original Snopes.com hit-piece, the FCC Licensing Bureau shows the licensing of 95.1 FM and is linked above.

    As to item #2, we made clear in our rebuttal to Snopes.com that Mr. Turner was merely a paying broadcaster who ended his 6 month relationship with SuperStation95 on March 31. He does not own, operate or contribute to the content of this web site. Moreover, RAWSTORY.com repeats the same false, misleading and defamatory claims that Turner was/is a “white supremacist” when in fact, as shown above, Turner was with the FBI from 1993 thru 2008 and in his final 5 years, was with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) to infiltrate white supremacist groups to thwart acts of violence! All this is proved by federal court records, yet Travis Gettys from Raw Story went ahead and ignored these facts nonetheless.

    Speaking of court records, both Snopes.com and RAWSTORY.com mention that the contact attorney for this website “is the same as Turner’s criminal defense attorney.” We wonder if it ever occurred to Snopes.com or to RAWSTORY that, as a media outlet, SuperStation95 was mortified that Turner was arrested and imprisoned for an editorial and, when he was wrongly convicted, that it was us who suggested Turner seek out OUR law firm because we knew they would help?

    SCHLAM, STONE & DOLAN is a very large law firm, with dozens of attorneys. The firm occupies three floors at 26 Broadway in New York City, the old “Standard Oil Building” in the heart of the financial district. They usually handle commercial litigation but took Turner’s case because it was a dire affront to the rule of law and a direct attack by government upon freedom of speech and freedom of the press.

    Even worse, RAWSTORY’s writer, Travis Gettys went on to say, in item #3 above that Turner is a “neo-Nazi” then utterly fabricated a claim that Turner “frequently appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox New program.” This proved to be a flat-out falsehood.

    One of the Editors here at SuperStation95, Christian Rivera, telephoned Hal Turner to inform him of these two “articles” and ask for Turner’s response.

    “Never once, in my entire life, did I ever appear on Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel program” said Turner.

    In fact, the only appearance Turner ever made on Fox News Channel was on the program “At Large with Geraldo Rivera” and when he appeared on that program, Turner did so with the direct approval of the FBI JTTF because it was part of an effort to uncover who murdered the family of federal Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow in Chicago, which had taken place just days before!

    Video of Turner’s appearance on FOX NEWS CHANNEL is available on Youtube from various uploaders such as this one: https://youtu.be/Pkr-Mmm5v7w

    “Folks who view the Youtube video need to understand that at the time, I was operating under deep cover for the national security of this country, in an active Murder investigation. What they are seeing is an intelligence operation by and for the FBI and the federal government” Turner said. “All of this came out in federal court in 2009 and 2010, where that video was actually played for one of the three juries! For RAWSTORY to use my work with the FBI against me, is disgraceful” he went on.

    With respect to Item #4, wherein RAWSTORY writer Travis Gettys claimed our story suggested the dead Agent’s note was “. . .”begging Americans to “rise up” and overthrow the U.S. government before it’s too late.” you need only scroll up to see it said nothing of the sort! The third Block Quote from the Agent’s suicide note reports his note as saying “If the American people knew what this government is planning, they would rise-up and overthrow it.”

    Nowhere did the Agent — or our story — “beg the American people to rise up and overthrow the government before it’s too late.” It simply isn’t there, and for Travis Gettys to assert otherwise shows he’s either lacking in reading comprehension, a retard, or a despicable twisted manipulator of the facts. This is the beyond shoddy journalism on the part of Travis Gettys, in our view it is outright journalistic fraud.

    If this is the type of half-assed reporting that routinely appears in RAWSTORY.com articles, then they just shot their credibility straight to hell. Knowing what our article actually said, and comparing it to what RAWSTORY reported, how can any rational person believe anything RAWSTORY ever publishes? They appear to make things up as they go along.

    The outright falsehoods about this story, appearing in RAWSTORY.com were written by:

    Travis J Gettys Age 43 (born Feb 25, 1973)

    Those of you who are offended by this type of journalistic misconduct, may wish to contact Mr. Gettys in a peaceful, lawful, non-threatening and non-violent manner to complain about his shoddy journalism.

    Mr. Gettys can be reached at Phone Number (859) 581-6713

    If you prefer, you may elect to write to Mr. Gettys at his home located just outside Cincinnati at:

    710 Maple AVE
    Newport, KY 41071-2044

    PLEASE DO NOT HARASS THIS IGNORANT PERSON and PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not make any threats, commit any intimidation or break any law at all. None of us need that and it will only result in serious legal trouble.

    You may be interested in knowing that at some point – and perhaps to this day — Mr. Gettys was employed by The Cincinnati Enquirer newspaper. If he is still employed there, we would urge the newspaper to make a very serious review of any news stories written by this person since his ability to check facts and accurately report do not seem to exist!

    In closing, we at SuperStation95 work very hard to get real news that the public can make use of. We do not filter our news based upon political correctness. The fact that Snopes.com went to great lengths to attack us, and now a radical left-wing cesspool like RAWSTORY.com has chosen to do the same, calls to mind the saying “Thou doth protest too much.”

    This seems like an awful lot of media exposure and effort to unleash if, as these outlets claim, our facts are wrong. Why such a strenuous response to something which is allegedly incorrect? Perhaps, as you may be starting to see, our story IS correct. The powers-that-be know it . . . and they’re now pulling out all the stops to cover it up.

    Sorry folks, the cat’s out of the bag and nothing you folks in government – or your henchmen in the mass-media – can do, will cover this up.

    We stand-by this story and all the stories we write and hope that you, the reader, can hear the “ring of truth” in our reporting, as we continue to uncover exclusive information and report the facts. To that end, we have now “exposed” the journalistic writing of Mr Travis J. Gettys as “FALSE” and hope that RAWSTORY enjoys a dose of its own medicine.

    Mr. Gettys and others at RAWSTORY.com, put themselves out in the public domain and hurl criticism and accusations at us and many other fine people. Since they put themselves out in the public domain, they are public figures who can be publicly criticized. Our goal with this update is to achieve that. Anyone else at RAWSTORY who performs similar acts against us can expect the same treatment.

    Since this story has become dated, we have decided to incorporate our SNOPES.com and RAWSTORY.com rebuttals seen above, into a new story for publication later today, May 12. The politically-correct left wing is clearly on the warpath that certain government plans seem to have been exposed. It thus seems best to bring this issue to the fore rather than let it go quietly into the night. The more they try to cover this up or discredit it, the more we will cover it.

    Snopes Finally Exposed As CIA Operation

    April 29, 2018 Sean Adl-Tabatabai News, US 11



    Using Snopes as a trusted authority is dangerous. According to a recent investigation, the so-called fact-checking organization is actually a front for the CIA.

    According to investigative journalist Wayne Madsen, Snopes was formed by the Central Intelligence Agency in order to spread disinformation on the internet, and stifle subversive outlets.

    Fellowshipoftheminds.com reports:

    From Madsen’s for-subscribers-only report of Oct. 7, 2016, ‘Snopes.com: the latest CIA addition to Internet disinformation‘:
    “On April 19, 2016, WMR reported: […] ‘Snopes.com is run by a California couple named Barbara and David Mikkelson, who founded the San Fernando Valley Folklore Society . . . The Mikkelsons chose the name Snopes because it is the name of a fictional family featured in William Faulkner’s novels that includes a pedophile, a murderer, a bigamist, a corrupt racist politician, and a thief who live in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County in Mississippi. The idea is to label all those targeted by the Mikkelsons as candidates for membership in the Snopes family. […]’
    Snopes.com is on record calling WMR a ‘disreputable web site.’ Nothing says ‘CIA’ more than Snopes.com’s description of legitimate news reports of CIA director John Brennan being a Wahhabist and Saudi sympathizer as ‘bogus.’

    Snopes’s most recent dissembling of the truth was to discount reports from Greece that Turkey has been shipping weapons disguised as furniture shipments to Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and affiliated terrorist groups in North Africa and Europe.

    Snopes claims that because the story of a Greek Coast Guard interception of a weapons shipment south of the island of Crete dates from 2015, there is no validity to the Turkish connection to weapons shipments to ISIL terrorists. The ship transporting the weapons was the Bolivian-flagged Haddad 1, operated by Delta Sea Maritime of Turkey. The vessel had loaded twelve containers at the Egyptian port of Alexandria, a favorite weapons shipment location for the CIA. The ship, before stopping in Famagusta in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, loaded another three containers at the Turkish port of Iskenderun, the transit port for the shipment of captured weapons from Muammar Qaddafi’s arms warehouses to Syrian jihadist rebels. It was the Iskenderun transport operation that involved the late U.S. envoy to Libya Christopher Stevens; Turkish Consul General in Benghazi Ali Sait Akin; CIA director David Petraeus; and, reportedly, senior advisers to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    The CIA had to commission its favorite Internet disinformation site to throw cold water on the Turkish weapons links to ISIL because it threatens to expose the CIA’s massive weapons smuggling operations to ISIL terrorists that involved Turi Defense Group of Arizona — a case just buried by the Department of Justice on orders of the Obama administration and the Hillary Clinton campaign — and other covert weapons transfers being carried out on the orders of ‘Al Hadj’ John Brennan, veteran of the Islamic ritual pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca.

    One of the CIA’s smuggling operations entailed the Belgian-based arms manufacturer Fabrique Nationale (FN), which has a CIA-connected subsidiary called FNH-USA. One particular FN rifle, the Fusil Automatique Léger (FAL), was the standard weapon used by the Libyan rebels in 2011 and 2012, including the jihadist group that attacked the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. The FAL, called the ‘Right Arm of the Free World’ during the Cold War, uses only NATO standard rounds. The weapon was never used by the Libyan Army, which relied on Soviet weaponry. Claims by NATO that the rebels were using Libyan weapons captured from Libyan army arsenals and caches were patently false.

    Snopes is now questioning Turkey’s weapons links to jihadist terrorists in North Africa and Europe. However, photographs do not lie, as seen below. Ammunition and 5,000 shotguns from the Turkish-owned arms dealer Yavex USA were shipped from Istanbul in boxes denoted as plastic office furniture manufactured by the Turkish firm ‘Senyayla Plastik Sanayi ve Ticaret A/S’ of Istanbul. The Turkish government and the CIA had their ‘plausible deniability’ cover story on the intercepted weapons and ammunition ready to go just after the Greek Coast Guard interception: The 492,000 handgun bullets were destined for the Sudanese national police and were to be delivered through the port of Beirut, Lebanon and the 4900 shotguns were ‘hunting rifles’ destined for Lebanese customers. The Haddad 1 was stopping at the Libyan ports of Misrata and Tobruk, according to the Turkish government, to deliver bags of ‘cement mix.’ At the time of the interception, Libya was subject to a United Nations arms embargo.

    Yavex’s U.S. subsidiary is located at 6361 Corporate Park Circle in Fort Myers, Florida. It is clear that both Yavex USA, Turi Defense Group, and FN-USA, now called FN-America, were involved in a covert CIA weapons smuggling operation in violation of the UN arms embargoes imposed on Libya, and later, on Syria, with the connivance of Hillary Clinton. Not surprisingly, FN-America operates from a post office box in McLean, Virginia, not far from CIA headquarters in Langley.

    What may have possessed Hillary Clinton to destroy thousands of State Department emails transmitted, processed, and stored on her personal servers? Perhaps it was her involvement in a major CIA weapons smuggling operation that saw U.S. and NATO weapons being shipped to jihadist terrorists in Libya, Syria, and Europe. As Secretary of State, Mrs. Clinton had ultimate authority for approving U.S. weapons transfers abroad pursuant to the Arms Export Control Act.

    As far as Snopes.com is concerned, nothing they report should be taken seriously. They are as reliable a news source as The Onion.”
    According to Wikipedia, the Mikkelsons, a California couple, created the Snopes site in 1995. By mid-2014, the couple had divorced and Barbara Mikkelson had not written for the site “in several years”. So David Mikkelson “hired employees to assist him from Snopes.com’s message board.” Barbara no longer has an ownership stake in Snopes.com.

    In other words, we are to believe that one man, David Mikkelson, with “assistants” he’d hired from Snopes’ message board, manages to pump out a steady stream of researched articles every day. If you believe that, I have the proverbial swamp in Florida to sell you.

    In other words, we are to believe that one man, David Mikkelson, with “assistants” he’d hired from Snopes’ message board, manages to pump out a steady stream of researched articles every day. If you believe that, I have the proverbial swamp in Florida to sell you.

    I just thought I would mention Superstation95 fooled me once. I remember at least one other Avalonian posting something with Superstation95 as the source which wasn't true as well.

    Nopes to Snopes! Honestly though, whenever I've used Snopes I feel like it's "gaslighting" me.

    There does seem to be a few kernels of truth in the OP though.

    Of course, who else has CIA's data-mining ops, known as Facebook, chosen for their fact-checking authority:

    SNOPES FINALLY EXPOSED AS CIA OPERATION
    (This source doesn't sound all that reliable either, but every little bit can help)



    From:
    https://forbiddenknowledgetv.net/sno...cia-operation/
    Quote We have investigative journalist Wayne Madsen to thank for checking the facts on the most well-known of “fact-checking” websites and confirming what many had suspected for years since the 1995 founding of Snopes.com. According to Madsen, Snopes was formed by the Central Intelligence Agency for the express purpose of stifling subversive outlets and spreading disinformation and propaganda on the Internet. Until 2013, the CIA had to do this on the down-low because propaganda wasn’t legal yet.

    We have Barack Obama to thank for legalizing propaganda and psychological operations aimed at influencing US public opinion, when he passed an amendment to the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 in his NDAA for fiscal year 2013. This now allows the State Department (i.e., the CIA) to go beyond manipulating mainstream media outlets and directly disseminating campaigns of misinformation to the US public, such as the Mueller Investigation.

    (What we might not have counted on was how incredibly sleazy these people are who the CIA digs up to work for them).
