I recently spoke with James Corbett of the Corbett Report about the Hollie Greig and Hampstead hoaxes. You can download the MP3 from CorbettReport.com or listen below:
Keelan Balderson of WideShut.co.uk joins the program today to discuss examples of child abuse witch hunts in the alternative media and how they can go very poorly. We examine the Hollie Greig case, where a Down’s syndrome girl was allegedly abused by a high-ranking pedophile ring for years, and how it spread through the alternative media without people verifying basic facts (like whether the victims were born at the time or whether the accused actually existed). We also talk about the recent allegations of child abuse in Hampstead, and what these stories tell us about how the alt media functions and how we can improve our own open source investigation into these topics.
