Truthout.org was attacked last night
Edited on Thu Mar-31-11 05:53 AM by annabanana
From my mailbox:

Dear Readers,

Late last night, Truthout.org was attacked and our content over the past ten days was deleted. We're working to capture the cache versions of those stories that are no longer available and republish them on our website.

You may find that some links will take you to "Page Not Found." Right now we're working to restore the vandalized stories.

We will update you as soon as we have more information, and hope to be back in full force very soon.

Thank you for your patience and your support!


Sincerely,

The Truthout Team



This outfit does good work. I'm saddened, but not surprised to see them on someone's hit list.

11. The right will try to copy Anonymous and make the liberals the targets
Anonymous is kicking their asses...if they can't beat them, they will try to make their supporters hate them.

9. That explains why the stories aren't in order this morning. I noticed a couple of items that I had
read weeks ago at the top of the lists.

16. Frankly, I'm surprised this doesn't happen to Progressive sites more often...
I'm a little surprised DU hasn't been attacked (unless it has and I'm just not aware).
