Hello Steemit! My Name Is William Craddick, Founder of Disobedient Media

Hello Steemit! My name is William Craddick, I am a co-founder at Disobedient Media. For a little over a year I worked as an investigative journalist putting out pieces related to human trafficking, political corruption as well as geopolitics. My research or reporting has also been cited by organizations such as Wikileaks and Liberatión. I’ve also appeared a few times on radio and international television networks such as Russia Today. 

Our work at Disobedient Media has also attracted negative attention from special interests. NATO-tied think tank the Atlantic Council, whose donor list at one point included organizations which gave material support to ISIS, has repeatedly attacked my reporting as well as that of my colleague Elizabeth Vos for our exposure of corruption and defense of free speech rights in the European Union.

Although I no longer write full time, I do occasionally put out pieces on topics that interest me, usually relating to foreign policy issues. I look forward to sharing my past and future work with all of you.

Hello William Craddick!
Will disobedient media be true to its name and publish some inconvenient truths about Vladimir Putin?
I just saw the RT logo.
Y U call urselves disobedient media if ur RT?

·

They are not connected to RT. The clip was showing @willamcraddick on the RT show.

·
·

I already encountered an exception to it, but usually to be on RT one has to be connected to RT.
Anyway, a true act of disobedience and independence will be to expose Vladimir Putin for what he is, which is worse than Hillary Clinton, and I believe most of what is claimed or implied about her.

·

That's straight up bullshit and an attempt to smear independent media. Factually false.

"Usually to be on RT one has to be connected to RT."

As for exposing Vlad, every network in America is attempting to do "expose" him, so it would be rather stale to jump on the MSM bandwagon and seems at this time like the absolute opposite of Disobedience.

Did u call RT "independent media", or did I misinterpret ur sentence?

The MSM is prohibited from exposing Putin, because the powers that be either fear a diplomatic incident, or Putin has some dirty secrets about them he did not reveal yet.

You clearly haven't done even rudimentary research, as I am not affiliated with RT.

Frankly, anything unflattering you want to know about Vladimir Putin you can already find in the Panama Papers and BBC. I generally stick to foreign policy issues that are not discussed by any media, foreign or domestic. Particularly topics related to regional destabilization and Chinese influence in the West.

You should know better.
You probably refer to Litvinenko and the large scale thefts that Putin commits, but there is so much more, like political assassinations other than Litvinenko, political appointments to enforce his tyranny and whitewashes, political imprisonments and arrests, faked allegations against his enemies, demoralization in other countries like financing so-called "alternative media" and "independent media", and I have not the resources and abilities to research good enough to prove connections to Putin's FSB, as they know their job good enough to disguise their connections from someone like myself.
After all, they try to hide their connections from the FBI, NSA and CIA, so for me to try to do the work such organizations do will be stupidity, even if I could.

Everything that Hillary and Bill Clinton did, Putin did, and he did worse.
They were never in his position.

Your perception is heavily controlled if you are looking out over the world and only seeing Russia or the Clintons, who are just two players among hundreds/thousands. I can't help you if your existence is so easily narrowed.

I compared Putin with the Clintons due to the Clintons' body count and other stuff.
If I made a different comparison you would have still posted this same reply.
You had it blueprinted already, regardless of what I was about to post.
See comparison? slap it with a "narrow minded" observation.

DM has never received any funding from third party sponsors.

What is DM?
Anyone can claim that such an entity

has never received any funding from third party sponsors

,but in reality, showing otherwise is very difficult.
Let us start by acknowledging that it has received funding, ask where they came from, then ask where did their sources get them from, and so on.

Glad you made it over here! :D

Welcome to the Steem Blockchain. I look forward to your posts. Something i like about steem is what gets posted on the chain, stays on the chain. Many outlets choose to edit pages and delete tweets, this complicates things, when we have no official record. Fake tweets become a reality.. Steem has none of this. If you post, it is on the chain forever. I tend to think people may value information a bit more once they know it cannot be retracted.

Welcome to Steemit, great to have you here. I think you will really enjoy this place, there's a certain freedom of speech that I haven't encountered anywhere else.

Welcome to Steemit, we talked before on Twitter and I have read some of your work. I am also good friends with @elizbethleavos your colleague. In regards to human trafficking and the elites' dirty secret, I referenced her to look at this article I wrote, and ill refer you as well. You may know some of this information you might not. Some of it I didn't even know until someone told me cheers! Keep fighting!

Welcome aboard. You've joined a solid community here. Looking forward to reading your pieces

Te doy una calurosa bienvenida a Steemit, espero leer buenos posts de tu parte.

So often when I get to read about "free media" it's just tin-foil-hat bullshit written by upper-middle-class tweenageres with too much time on their hands. Articles are rife with claims that marijuana cures cancer, vaccines cause autism, Israel is the epitome of evil or that universities are homosexual breeding pens (or some other lunacy). I checked a few of your articles (rather sceptical) and it's nice to see someone who actaully appears to have done their research for once.

Hi William I'm saltycat, I look forward to reading your pieces on foreign policy.

Hi my dear friend William Craddick welcome to steemit this is a blockchain website

Welcome to this great place. I completely understand you. It is the trend all over the world. Anyone who exposes corruption will have haters in high places.
