Narco News is supported in part by the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict. Narco News has a school. The school is called the School of Authentic Journalism. The international Center on Nonviolent Conflict matches donations to the school by other parties.
Jack Duvall is the president of the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict. Jack Duvall and James Woolsey (CIA, PNAC) founded The Arlington Institute. James Woolsey is the former head of the CIA. He is currently listed on the Board of Directors of the Arlington Institute.
James Woolsey is a member of PNAC, the Project for a New American Century. PNAC is considered a neo-con work establishing permanent America domination of the world.
PNAC is avidly anti socialist, anti-Chavez in Venezuela and anti- Zelaya in Honduras.
James Woolsey has advocated the bombing of Iraq, Iran and Syria. He accused Iraq of causing 911 on 9/11.
Peter Ackerman is also founder of ICNC. He is the head of "Freedom House" who Stephan Gowans calls a "CIA interlocked think tank".
Peter Ackerman (a former junk bond trader who worked closely with Michael Milliken) is accused by Eva Golinger of trying to destablilze Hugo Chavez in Venezuela.
Why does a group like ICNC who seeks to encourage Anti Chavez activists in Venezuela, fund Narco News and it's "school" which purport to have a Pro Chavez stance?
ICNC met with dissidents from Venezuela to discuss how to resist Chavez in "non violent" ways.
Narco News purports to be a website that’s reports on the Drug War and Democracy in all of the Americas. Why does it accept funding from organizations whose members are associated with extreme right wing reactionary ideologies whose goals are the destablization of countries like Venezuela, Bolivia, Honduras and Ecuador amongst others?
Why is there a paucity of articles on Colombia. Colombia is the center of the “drug war” and the United States lonely major ally in “all of the America’s".
Al Giordano is the head of Narco News and he is a supporter of Daily Kos and Markos Moulitsas who he has called the “Saul Alinksy” of our age.
Markos Moulitsas believes the CIA is a liberal organization with it’s “heart in the right place". While running Daily Kos, Markos Moulitsas says he applied to join the CIA and went all the way to the end of the application process having gotten to the point where he was given an assignment to be a spy in Washington D.C.
The history of the CIA in Central and South America should be well known to anyone interested in politics.
The School for Authentic Journalism purports to train people to be journalists. These people then fan out to various nations and become information gatherers in the field.
The information is gathered. Who gets the information?
What I would like to know is, What’s going on here?
The information "gathered" above was gathered by me.
I looked up one thing, then another and discovered who the ICNC was and who was in the ICNC.
I wonder if that's authentic journalism?
I don't think so. But it's information.
It's up to the reader to put the pieces together.
But let's be clear. Very conservative, if not radically conservative organizations are either connected to, or directly supporting Narco News.
