Guess who helps control the world?

Happy Birthday Dave, I came across your name in an online publication in a rather unusual context.

The “Pakistan Daily” published a list of Jewish People that help control the world. You are listed as number 12.

The link to the article can be found here.

This type of “journalism” demonstrates one of the fatal flaws of online publications. There is no need to spend any money on reporters, newsprint or even office space. All one needs is a computer, internet access and an agenda to create a passable “newspaper”.

Once the article is published, it gets republished by bloggers and other sites with a similar agenda. It is analogous to the email chain letters that plague all of us.

I did a quick Google search and came up with 657 hits for the phrase david poltrack jewish. I suspect that number will keep increasing as this “story” gets copied and re-copied to various websites.

It is depressing to see the results of this search because it reveals a plethora of hate sites.
