Capital Hill Blue Mocks NM Neo-Nazi and Baathist Agent

Capital Hill Blue Exterminates the Nazi Roach Nimmo http://www.capitolhillblue.com/content/2006/04/takes_more_than_a_modem_a
Our favorite, however, is a blogger Kurt Nimmo's Another Day in the Empire where he defends his begging for donations by claiming Thompson lines his pockets with ad money from Capitol Hill Blue.
Nimmo's is one of those anti-Semitic web sites where anti-Jewish propaganda flies like lightning bugs in spring,

Writes Nimmo:

I notice Capitol Hill Blue is teeming with banner ads for corporate interests such as Verizon, the Dish Network, Best Western, TiVo, and others. I bet you put those up for free. Let's face it, Doug. It costs money to run a website. Some of us write about other things besides nine eleven and as journalists we'd like to get paid for it. I have a donation button on my blog. I'd like to write political commentary and get paid for it like the hacks over at the Washington Post and the New York Times. I don't consider myself a scam artist for putting up a donation button. I wonder how much of that lucrative banner income works its way to your bank account, Mr. Thompson.

None of it actually. A little research by Mr. Nimmo would have discovered the CHB FAQ page which clearly states:

Nobody here draws a salary. Blue is a not-for-profit operation where everyone donates their time and efforts. Any revenue we might bring in from ads goes to a favorite charity.

A little more effort might have uncovered stories about our efforts during Hurricane Katrina where Thompson not only donated the ad proceeds to relief agencies, but matched, dollar for dollar, contributions from Capitol Hill Blue readers:

Readers of Capitol Hill Blue in September gave $16,745 to relief efforts for victims of Hurricane Katrina and the web site matched those contributions for combined donations of $33,490.

Blue, the oldest political news web site on the Internet, also plans to contribute 100 percent of its ad revenue for the month of September. Preliminary figures from the web site's ad representatives show the September ad revenue to be more than $20,000, which will bring the total donations to over $50,000.

It takes more than a modem and a mouth to be a journalist. Research also requires more than running a quick Google search. It requires training and hard work, two items we find lacking in those who claim to know more than us about our chosen profession.

Kurt Nimmo is a subliterate neo-nazi, Baathist agent and Holocaust Denier, an unemplyed high school dropout who writes "poetry" about his own hemorrhoids.

The scoop on Thompson
17 Apr 2006
Thompson was recently served a national security letter regarding demands for informaiton about who is posting on his website. He was very distressed about this and immediately changed is political views regarding 9/11 and began attacking anyone who questions to the official 9/11 line. Thompson is compromised, running scared, and becoming a voice for the right-wing/zionists.
