The G-Man's Latest Offering

"The G-Man Interviews" Series 

Gaining the Attention of Many 


I'm submitting this brief announcement as a result of the many, many emails I receive from people that continue to log on and read or view my four-year catalog of work. I'm truly honored by the comments and heartfelt requests to relaunch this news and information site. 

As stated during the final months of operation, the site could no longer function without significant advertising or public donations to help maintain its base of operations and produce even more quality news stories and features. I literally placed myself in debt to hold on to my creation and provide the public with hardcore, uncensored, and unfiltered news and information while battling proponents of "yellow journalism". I exhausted whatever savings I had over the four-year period just to manage the site on a full-time basis, but in the end it proved to be more than I could handle, financially speaking. 

I still have hope that one day a person of substantial means or wealth will come across this site, see its potential and power, and contact me with an offer to help reactivate it and make it better than ever. Undoubtedly, I'll jump at the chance. 

Until then, I invite all of my devoted "G-Fans", and those discovering this site for the first time, to visit the following link to see my latest offering: "The G-Man Interviews"

The show features exclusive interviews with some of the country's leading activists, celebrities, foreign policy experts and political figures. It premiered in December of 2012, shortly before I shut down "From The G-Man", but it is quickly gaining the attention of media industry professionals, public officials and the general public. I hope you'll join me. 

Here's are two recent episodes. Enjoy.

'Good Night, And Good Luck'

A Special Farewell Video Message to Mainstream Media and the Public

Okay, folks. I'm going to be very brief. I thank those of you that took the time to log on and read or watch many of the breaking and original news stories, special features, and exclusive interviews that were posted. I also thank those that contributed to this site during its four year run. Whether you gave a monetary donation or moral support, I will always be grateful. You're a crucial reason why the site was able to last for as long as it did. 

I would like the video that has been posted to serve as a reminder -- to the American media and the public -- of what good, true journalism is really all about. It's from the critically acclaimed film "Good Night, and Good Luck", and the speech given by the lead character, Edward R. Murrow, whom I consider one of my journalism mentors, is just as relevant today as it was in the late 1950's. 

Let us not forget the true nature of journalism and the mission of a journalist, which, in its most unvarnished form, is to fearlessly shine the spotlight of truth upon corruption, deceit...and injustice. This is the essence of journalism. 

Again, I thank my supporters and wish all of you a very Happy New Year. 

This is "The G-Man".....signing off.
