of the New York MEgaphone
Here’s a page from the reporting the New York Megaphone did in “Phase One” - back in the days of Vox Pop. From around 2005 to around 2008, we all met every week as “volunteer citizen journalists pursuing the unreported story.” We wrote about what we wanted to write about.
Spitzer’s Real Scandal
By Sander Hicks
September 11, 2007
The Spitzer scandals continue.
On the 6th anniversary of the 9/11 attack, Brooklyn activist newspaper the New York Megaphone breaks this exclusive story:
NY Governor Eliot Spitzer filed an amicus brief on 1/15/03 on behalf of the World Trade Center’s controversial lease-holder, the real estate magnate Larry Silverstein. This document shows that Spitzer, as Attorney General, helped Silverstein get the whopping $4.5 billion windfall for the 9/11 attacks. The record is clear: Spitzer helped reverse a lower court’s decision, by making credible Silverstein’s argument that the two different plane crashes on 9/11/01 should be compensated as two different terrorist attacks.
Lindley DeVecchio was the CIA and NY Mafia's Bag Man in the NY FBI. Accused of four counts of murder by the Brooklyn DA, the case fell apart in court. Someone…took a…
Dive to the Mat.
Today, DeVecchio is still at large in Florida.
We ask Why.
Mohamed Atta’s Best Friend
On November 16, 2006, the Joint Terrorism Task Force issued a “Terror Alert” for a certain Wolfgang Bohringer, a German-born, naturalized U.S. citizen who had partied with and protected 9/11 “ring-leader” Mohamed Atta, in Florida. The New York Megaphone had sources on the inside, who begged us to go along with the cover-up. We declined, and ran this story on page one.
