Brasscheck.com was the first web site to report on election fraud in the US
in depth (1997) and was one of the
very earliest news services to seriously question government/media claims about the September 11 attacks.

"In 1920, Upton Sinclair, an outsider to journalism, wrote The Brass Check, the first book exposing the press. It was this book, plus a friendship with the author lasting many years, that influenced me and the books I wrote on the press, beginning in the 1930's."
