Youtube Series Dramatizes CIA Truth About Kos

Politics is about inspiring people. This year, my Truth about Kos Blog has inspired someone I don't know, some named "Truthout1020," to make three videos, posted at YouTube, that graphically explore the shocking truths that my research has uncovered about Markos C.A. Moulitsas Zúñiga (MAMZ).

All of the videos touch upon MAMZ's shocking involvement with the Central Intelligence Agency. But the latest video specifically dramatizes MAMZ's virulently anti-gay essay that he published in the Northern Star campus newspaper at Northern Illinois University (NIU) on January 25, 1993. Shortly after I uncovered and publicized this essay, the entire archive of the campus newspaper went off-line, including the virulently homophobic essay.

Now, the archives are back on line and they include many articles from 1993. But still missing is the virulently homophobic essay MAMZ published in January of 1993, as well as the series of articles on "racism," in which he disavowed being an immigrant or a minority. Thankfully, many of us made screenshots of those articles when they were still available.

But a troubling question has arisen and it remainst unanswered: Did a major university take its archives offline to prevent embarrassment to Markos Moulitsas? If the NIU archives come back online but they are stripped of the articles that embarrass Moulitsas, then we will have to conclude that the protection for MAMZ in the blogosphere extends even to the point of stripping MAMZ's own statements from the historical record when they embarrass him.

That being said, I am honored that my research, blog and series of investigative articles on MAMZ have inspired Truthout1020 to make a series of graphic video presentations, posted at Youtube, dramatizing The Truth About Kos. I hope we will see many more videos from Truthout1020. S/he certainly has a lot of true material to work with at the Truth About Kos Blog.
