I think he explained it well regardless of wether he is right or wrong. He has the right to critque whatever and whoever he wants. He doesn't owe anyone anything. As for the idea that there should be cooperation among truthers that is ridiculous. That's how I see it.

I agree with you, Richie,s show is basically an alternative look at current news with some guests thrown in. He has the right to say whatever he likes about anyone. After all it is his show and he can say what he likes. I wasn't implying that all truthers should co operate, more the point that there seems to be  a lot of animosity amongst the alternative media and some of it gets very personal which I don't think that it does some journalists credit.
I suppose it comes down to what each individual person wants to get out of listening to speakers and alternative journalists. Some just want to be a bit better informed and others want to go and do further research and get involved.
We are all different in our views and this type of platform is good for healthy debate.

One should not deny any kind of speach unless its malice and hurtful, I would not do it.

One thing that really makes me cringe is when the terms like irrefuteable and definate comes into play when they are merely theory based, this is rather silly to me, nothing can be solid unless the ones doing harm are caught red handed and exposed using proven scientific facts, most of the truth movement are lacking facts on many subjects.

One thing I have learned the hard way is, that Any road followed precisely to its end leads precisely nowhere.

According to James Corbett, Sibel Edmonds sent Corbett an e-mail asking if he was receiving funding from "an Iranian" from CA, USA because he blew up her shit video. Good night, Newsbud.

Fair play to James for exposing it.
Whatever the reasons for all this, Sibel has not done herself any favours
Eva and Vanessa must have really rubbed her up the wrong way as she is trying her damnedest to get everyone to drop them.
All very strange

Yeah for what it's worth I think Richie is wrong on this one, and I think James Corbett did a pretty good job on explaining why.

I supported newsbud's kickstarter but it quickly became the siebel show for me, and almost immediately questions around expenses arose and were not addressed properly. I walked away then and although I felt there was something off they did seem to be putting out decent stuff, albeit behind a pay-wall, which again is a bit odd in my opinion.
However in this supposed expose turned ugly, manipulative, well-produced hit-piece Edmonds was acting very strangely for me, very.

I respect Richie's point of view, he's of course entitled to it, but I'd be lying if I said his stance on this doesn't lessen the weight of his opinion for me.
I'd also be interested in someone pointing me to some resource that details Richie's dislike of UK Column as I do like them but if I'm missing some information that might challenge that I'm all ears.

The UK Column touches the parts which other alternatives fail to touch upon properly and have the data to back them up, where others have only conjecture, I wounder how many cut and paste their documentation, because I have seen plenty that have, post facto period.

Love ya Richie! You got this one wrong, but thats ok! Good work everyone!

Have to say when I first watched this film I agreed the film was 'excellent' and it exposed activist journalists as being some kind of shills. 

However, after watching the CorbettReport video which examines Newsbud's facts my view on this film has changed completely. It seems to be nothing more than an ill thought out hit piece with few facts, no context and it has to be said straight up hypocrisy on the part of Edmonds. 

Anyway, this is just my view and you can see the Corbett Report film here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6IqyfDfImI&t=3482s

The call for social media to be regulated at the end of the film is also highly questionable. Thanks for reading.
