A Brief End of Year Thanks from Just the Facts
Thank you to the 5000 loyal subscribers to Just the Facts.
This Substack is somewhat unorthodox. It does not adhere to the typical model of focusing on a single subject. Some of you discovered my work from articles about OxyContin or Fentanyl, only to find the next piece discussing the dangers of puberty blockers for minors or the risks posed to free expression by increasing censorship. Just when you think you spot a theme, I am sure to deliver something unexpected; how Sweden became a gangland paradise, the latest news from those still-sealed JFK assassination files, or the emergence of an October 7 denial movement. Just the Facts tries to break some news while also delivering a view of a topic that is fresh from the mainstream media coverage.
The nature of investigative journalism means Just the Facts has no set publication schedule. It depends on when I finish my reporting on a story. Sometimes a promising lead takes much longer than expected or ends up in a dead end. And many times, I am pulled away from Substack — which I keep free of charge — to fulfill commitments for books, articles, and documentaries.
Currently, there are several Just the Facts projects in progress. A couple have the potential for groundbreaking revelations. Additionally, next year, I plan to feature occasional articles by guest investigate reporters.
Remember, some of the stories I am chasing come from your tips. I encourage whistleblowers to contact me through my Swiss-based, encrypted email, Berggasse19@protonmail.com, or via Signal at 917-300-9834. Response times may vary due to deadline pressures, but rest assured, I will get back to you.
For those wanting to send general feedback, or suggest a future topic, please write to me via Substack or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Outside of Just the Facts, you can follow my daily updates on X (formerly known as Twitter). Finally, my wife and reporting collaborator, Trisha — the author of the international bestselling The Pharmacist of Auschwitz, and the founder of the non-profit Antisemitism Watch — also shares her daily insights on X. Trisha has a much less frequently updated Substack, No More Nice Jewish Girl.
Thanks once again for your steady support and encouragement.
Wishing everyone a good New Year and start to 2024.
