Propaganda Watch List for Authors, Literary Agents & Publishers


PROPAGANDA ALERT: American Book Publishing Investigation Research Released: No Proof of Victoria Strauss Claims With all sources of information available to us today, its sometimes difficult to know which are based on facts, to discern whether false information was provided or whether the whole story was communicated. While some Web sites, and their commentators, began as providers of information based on facts and or unbiased opinions, many over time have been corrupted either in whole or in part to a point of view or ideology. On this page you will find a list of sources that have been shown to promote progressive ideologies, open ended commentary and unsupported statements. Some are presented as non-biased or based on facts; others do not. Through an examination of the information these organizations and individuals offer, including their sources of funding, parent organizations, leadership, agendas, goals and content of the information presented and based on comparison with the facts as determined by theprimary source material as it becomes available, many warrant further review. The objective is to encourage you to evaluate these sources of information with a discerning eye, become a skeptic and utilize the C.R.A.P test to evaluate postings, articles and information. C.R.A.P. is an acronym for Currency, Reliability, Authority and Purpose and Point of View. The following informational sources warrant a significant and judicious review when gleaned for information:

Writer Beware*

Writers Net

ABOUT US We are a group of individuals, writers, want-to-be authors and inquisitive wordsmiths that have become literally numb from reading the numerous author help related blog posts. Many of these postings are subjective and do not offer any substantial documentation regarding purported claims regarding publishers and other industry professionals. In addition, many of these sites have become nothing more than complaint boards that disseminate speculative claims without any substantiation. We do not discount the validity of some claims made. However, we want to question both sides of an issue and to assist other authors in making informed decisions. If a fact is proven true well support it. If a claim is twisted, slanted, incomplete, not updated (retracted) or smells like innuendo . . . well challenge it.

We will not engage in self-promotion, post links to our books or encourage you, in any way, to purchase our books.
