Joe Bodell – R
entABlogger with SorosTemps ”citizen journalist” at the Minnesota Monitor - has found a major mystery.
OK. Where were we?
Oh, yeah. Crack citizen journalist Joe Bodell has found himself a mystery to try to solve:
So what is looktruenorth.com? If you go to the website, you get a message from the Joomla software running that the site is down for maintenance. But digging a little deeper (legally and without trickery, of course) reveals at least a few details
Address: 188.8.131.52Non-authoritative answer:
184.108.40.206 doesn’t do much — it’s owned by Comcast out in Michigan, and doesn’t have a public-facing website associated with it. However, plug 220.127.116.11 into your web browser, and what do you get? Whaddaya know, a Minnesota-based conservative group blog known as FreedomDogs.com. Although an nslookup search on freedomdogs.com reveals a different non-authoritative answer, the same primary server at IP address 18.104.22.168 appears in the results as well.
Bodell proceeds to do everything but…
Wait a minute…:
…Sorry. had to get that out of the way.
Bodell then goes all Chloe O’Brien on us, trying to figure out exactly what True North and its domain “looktruenorth.com” are all about.
Now, if I were a “citzen journalist” on the payroll of a mighty news outlet like the Minnesota Monitor, where would I go to try to get to the bottom of this mystery?
When one is reporting a tricky story like this, one needs to look carefully for signs – sometimes very, very subtle ones…
…that someone is “in the know” about the
conspiracy mystery. Sometimes, when you do that, approaching them – this is almost indistinguishable from magic, to the non-”citizen journalist”, but bear with me – with a “question” might actually get you some answers.
So think, Joe. Think hard.
Is there anyone out there, any faint hint you can find that someone might perhaps have some information about the story?
Think, Joe Bodell. Set the blender of that finely-honed citizenjournalistic mind on “Puree”, and think hard. Who could you possibly simply ask for details about True North?
The truth is out there!
It is. Somewhere.
It just takes superhuman tenacity along with otherworldly investigative skill.
I know you’re up to it.
