The Brasscheck.com Historical Archive

This web page contains the index to the archive of Brasscheck.com, a pioneering effort of independentjournalism on the Internet that operated from 1997 to 2002.

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.

Effective August 1, 2002:
The domain name brasscheck.com

"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."
- George Seldes
