Falk's UNCA Starts New Fake Account, to Defend Her Photos of UN Raid

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, March 27 -- Since Pamela Falk of CBS became president of the UN Correspondents Association ten weeks ago, the gang has created at least five anonymous social media accounts to try to undermine its opponents.

  The newest one defends the taking and anonymous distribution of photographs of the UN's raid of Inner City Press' office, during which Falk took photographs.

  Rather than explain why she took them, for UNCA or CBS News, Falk has issued a legal threat against even raising the question, from her e-mail address. This is not a press freedom organization, from top to bottom. A fish rots from the head.

  Under Falk, UNCA “leaders” have torn down and defaced flyers of the Free UN Coalition for Access, and filed false complaints against Inner City Press based entirely on publications or speech.

  In the newest low, Falk herself on March 18 was ghoulishly taking photographs as the UN raided Inner City Press' office without notice or consent. Four days later, transferred by an anonymous “Concerned UN Reporter” e-mail account, three raid photographs appeared on BuzzFeed.

  What has been the response of Pam Falk? Not to tell her Executive Committee and organization not to sink so low; not to answer a simple question about why she took the raid photographs.

  Rather, after at a February 22 on the record meeting screaming at Inner City Press that it is a “mugger” and “you call yourself a journalist,” Falk on March 23 from her e-mail address sent Inner City Press a legal threat to not dare even question why she took the photographs and what she did with them.

  Inner City Press has responded in the only free press way possible: it published the threat, and asked CBS News, Up To The Minute and now higher, is this is in fact their legal threat. It is anti anti-free press threat, that media cannot even ask questions, who took the photos?

And while some other have advised against it, Inner City Press will report on the UN Censorship Alliance's anonymous social media.

  UNCA leaders' witch hunt in 2012 resulted in Inner City Press receiving death threats, and they've tried to push the same buttons in 2013. And so it will be confronted. Watch this site.
