Has OffGuardian been deemed off-limits on the Graun?

We were emailed yesterday by a reader who told us she had tried several times to post a link on the Guardian to our ongoing reportage of the Kolomoisky circus in Kiev, and each time the link had vanished without a trace just moments after posting.

It’s pretty clear the entire subject of Kolomoisky’s standoff with Poroshenko is deemed dangerous non-news by the western media at the moment, so maybe this is why our reader’s links were dropped so speedily down the Memory Hole, but it would be interesting to check this out.

If anyone feels like dropping by the Guardian and trying to post a polite, non-abusive link back to one of our articles, we’d be interested to know how it turns out.

Congratulations on having put a stick into the Empire’s eye; well done. Do let us know from time to time how your traffic is doing, because I sense a real appetite for alternative news.

But more and more the media is non-stop lying from muzzle to butt-plate, and only local news that can be easily checked – such as “the Portadown Catholic Church bean supper fort charity will be held this Friday at 5:00 PM – is… Read more »

We’ve been amazed at the reception OffG has been getting, given the short time we’ve been here. I think you must be right, people are desperately hungry for alternative news. Maybe the appetite has been sharply increased by the recent warmongering and nazi-flirtation in Ukraine and the MSM attempts to whitewash it.That has proved a critical failure and I can see it might have caused many people who don’t consider themselves radicals or in any way “alternative” to question the mainstream info sources for the first time. That’s a very interesting piece from the Beeb isn’t it. I was thinking… Read more »

Just thought I’d share this from this morning’s CIF on the Natalie Jaresko article, just in case, as it expresses well why people might be disappointed in the ‘world’s leading liberal etc’ Standupwoman 16m ago “Everybody in the free world should be doing more to help Ukraine. This is a country that has given its life for democracy and is protecting Europe from an aggressive neighbour”. Listen, Ms ‘Insider Trading’ Jaresco, and I’ll tell you what you and your country have actually done to Britain. You’ve damaged our economy by unjust sanctions, and used our taxpayers’ money to fund your… Read more »

Brilliant. Thanks so much for sharing it. I think we should have a section for outstanding CiF comments – both negative and positive.

Have just tried to post link several times, to no avail, so again one has to question the guardian’s commitment to free speech/omment

Thanks Francis – other have had the same result. It seems pretty clear we are banned from mention on the Graun at this point. Maybe they will tell us why if we keep asking politely.
