Sounds like someone well worth following: |
"...Thornton said that “being taken away and questioned for ‘malinformation’ is quite an honour."
He noted that "disinformation is when you knowingly know something is a lie, and you publish it. Misinformation is when you don’t know something is a lie, and you go ahead and publish it."
"’Malinformation’ is when you know something is completely true, and you publish it, and they consider it harm to take it from the private sphere and put it into the public sphere," Thornton argued.
He pointed out that journalists have a "duty" to expose crimes, impropriety, risks to public health and safety and to prevent the people from being misled by public figures.

“So thank you very much for showing that all 16 of the videos you were investigating are completely and utterly true," Thornton told the police, pointing out that "no further action" was being taken against him.
“There is no way that we are going to keep silent, and we are going to keep telling people the truth," Thornton vowed. “It is incumbent upon them to prove that what we are doing doesn’t benefit the public."
He stressed that his and others' critical coverage of the West's proxy conflict with Russia in Ukraine was vital in the interests of humanity, and that he was entitled to point out breaches of Article 39 of the UN Charter — which mandates a response to 'any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression' — which he believed "all NATO members have been guilty of."
"We need to stop the killing and all the money that is flowing to these lunatic people and this lunatic war that is being fought on behalf of these lunatics in power," Thornton said."
