Is memoryhole an anti-govt site? San Diego news station says so.
Channel 8 in San Diego ran a story about the photos that the pentagon doesn't want you to see. The ones of the flag draped coffins that got the photographer and her husband fired. Several times during the story they referred to the memoryhole website as and anti-govt site. I went there and found it to be anti-war. The corporate media is just pouring out the damn lies.
This is sickening!

2. Well, it's anti-GOP, and the GOP is now running the government
I guess by that logic you could call memoryhole anti-gov't. Still, that's like saying someone is anti-car because they don't like the driver.

3. no it is not a anti government site
The guy russ kirk file a freedom of information act paper and got a CD with 300+ photographs and posted them to his site....

He believes in preserving images that might be lost otherwise....The news media that have posted pictures got them from his site.... you can see some in the threads here.....people have posted them in their threads....there were lots of threads with them yesterday...
apparently the site is down right now.....either because it was overwhelmed by so many people trying to access it or because someone took it down...

alternet.org has a little blurb and some links to CNN who has about 8 of the pictures.....probably if you do a search you can find other sites that have some of the pictures for now...

6. No
It's a pro-preservation site. It just so happens that the current govt is trying to erase critical portions of US history hoping you won't notice. Russ Kick aims to do them one better.

8. One thing they archive are pictures of Alabama Cointelpro records...
of MLK and others with mugshots and bios.

If you want to know what an injustice the FBI under Hoover
committed and the extent a police state was created to oppose
the civil rights movement the Memory Hole is a great place look.
