This action is unprecedented ! Astounding!! Our Leader, who is known for defying the TOP DOWN corporate system thing, and warns us to DISTRUST any tangential connection to CORPORATE management, has, AT GREAT PERSONAL RISK, infiltrated the bowels of a GLOBAL INTELLIGENCE COMPANY for the CAUSE, using her REAL LIFE EMAIL ADDRESS:

Nothing says commitment to transparency than giving the CORPORATE ENEMY your REAL LIFE CONTACT DETAILS.
Some might think this proof Our Glorious Leader is a flake who has no idea WTF she's talking about and easily duped into doing stupid shit and reckless with any confidential information, much less has any business being a progressive left news-reporter, but we put all those people on a bus to the Happy Valley Reeducation center.
On December 25, 2011, the Anonymous group hacked into a private intelligence agency, Strategic Forecasting Inc. or STRATFOR, based in Austin, Texas. The attack began with the release of STRATFOR's client list announced at https://twitter.com/#!/AnonymousIRC/status/150679351589998593 followed by release of accounts in batches believed to belong to STRATFOR's customers. The release announced in another Twitter post at https://twitter.com/#!/AnonymousIRC/status/150985258999885824 includes emails, passwords (hashed with MD5), home/office addresses and credit card information (full 16-digit number, expiry date and CVV number). The table below is the list of the leaked accounts with the passwords removed.
Strategic Forecasting, Inc., more commonly known as Stratfor, is a global intelligence company founded in 1996 in Austin, Texas, by George Friedman who is the founder, chief intelligence officer, and CEO of the company. Fred Burton is Stratfor's Vice President of Intelligence.
In early 2012, WikiLeaks began publishing over 5 million of the company's email messages.
Stratfor has published a daily intelligence briefing since its inception in 1996. Its rise to prominence occurred with the release of its Kosovo Crisis Center during the 1999 NATO airstrikes over Kosovo, which led to publicity in Time magazine, Texas Monthly, and other publications. Before the end of 1999, however, Stratfor had introduced a subscription service through which it offered the majority of its analyses. At the time of the September 11, 2001 attacks, Stratfor made its "breaking news" paragraphs, as well as some notable analyses predicting likely actions to be taken by al-Qaeda and the Bush administration, available freely to the public.
Stratfor has some products available to the public including private briefings, corporate memberships, a publishing business that includes written and multimedia analysis and an iPhone application.
Stratfor has been cited by media such as CNN, Bloomberg, the Associated Press, Reuters, The New York Times and the BBC as an authority on strategic and tactical intelligence issues. Barron's once referred to it as "The Shadow CIA".
To think Our Leader was brave enough to beard the CORPORATE intelligence lion in it's own den!
Most intelligent journalists would have used an alias. But, though, Our Leader warns us in the strongest terms about associating with such corporate slimeballs, she thought nothing of her own safety as she gave these same corporate slimeballs her personal information. That just shows how much she cares, to protect cadre at GREAT PERSONAL RISK.
As further PROOF she's protected cadre, we've have NO leaks from STRATFOR through Presswatch over the years, no BREAKING STORIES that put KBOO on the map.
Comrades, this is further proof of Our Glorious Leader's ironclad journalistic integrity. While the dastardly Lynn Fitch's arrest records are fair game, STRATFOR's secrets are safe with us.
At least until Wikileaks came along. Oops.
