As UN's Censorship Alliance Lashes Out from Anonymity, UN Does Nothing

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, May 24 -- UN scribes from Reuters, Bloomberg News, Voice of America, Agence France Presse and others on the board of the UN Correspondents Association tried to get Inner City Press thrown out of the UN in 2012.

   In 2013 they have started anonymous social media accounts to falsely accuse Inner City Press of being funded by terrorists.

  Inner City Press quit UNCA and co-founded the Free UN Coalition for Access. FUNCA presses the UN for more transparency, for example this week for access to report on the Security Council. FUNCA has also made the UN aware that its partners in UNCA are anonymous trolls.

  Most recently on May 23 Inner City Press showed UN official Stephane Dujarric that FUNCA flyers -- about reduction in press access to the Security Council -- were defaced by UNCA "leaders," right under a UN Security camera installed over the door to the office of Inner City Press and FUNCA. (Both have told the UN to take the camera down.)

Dujarric on May 23 wrote that, "someone reportedly defaced the fliers on your door. We will look into the issue in the morning."

  But nothing was heard from Dujarric by 4 pm on May 24. Inner City Press and FUNCA asked for an update. Dujarric replied at 5:01 pm, copying Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's three top spokespeople, "I have nothing to add to what I've already told you on record on all the issues you raise in your email."

  So: nothing was done, or will be done. By 8 pm, the UNCA trolls -- Dujarric's personal friends -- began again, celebrating their anonymity.

We will begin by naming the two people most in charge of UNCA. The president is Pamela Falk of CBS News, who took photographs as Inner City Press' office was raided by the UN on March 18 then threatened to sue about stories asking why she took photographs of the raid.

  Falk's first vice president and Rasputin is Louis Charbonneau of Reuters, who filed three stealth complaints (including at least one to Dujarric's personal, non-UN e-mail account) to try to get Inner City Press thrown out of the UN after he was challenged on stealing and mislabeling exclusives, for which Reuters offers extra compensation. This is UNCA, the UN's Censorship Alliance. This is the UNCA Executive Committee. Watch this site
