Internet servers hosting the King World News Internet site, which today posted a half-hour interview with three GATA board members, were attacked and disabled tonight from approximately 8 to 10 p.m. ET.
The servers are maintained by one of the largest Internet site hosting companies in the world and one of its technicians told King World News proprietor Eric King, “We cannot figure out why this cluster of servers is being attacked.” The King World News site host has maintained the site on a “grid” system of servers so that ordinary technical problems with any one server cannot disable the site, but tonight’s attack was sophisticated and brought down the entire grid.
King and his family have not been attacked and one may suppose that what happened tonight at least is preferable to being rammed by a hit-and-run driver, as CFTC whistleblower Andrew Maguire and his wife were rammed in London the day after GATA disclosed at last week’s hearing of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission that Maguire had given the commission detailed warning of a manipulation of the futures market and the commission had done nothing about it.
At this hour the King World News interview with the three GATA board members — GATA Chairman Bill Murphy, Adrian Douglas, and your secretary/treasurer — appears to be accessible again here:
If King World News is becoming Radio Free America, this sort of thing may happen again.
