Few financial newsletter writers work harder than
Jay Taylor, editor of J. Taylor's Gold, Energy, and Tech Stocks newsletter (http://www.miningstocks.com/). Taylor not only provides weekly analysis from a hard-money point of
view but also produces an Internet radio interview program on which GATA
Chairman Bill Murphy and your secretary/treasurer have appeared and speaks on
financial television and raido programs and at
financial conferences around the world. Last week Taylor was appearing on
Business News Network in Canada and his latest letter describes how he was
urged not to mention GATA on the air.
This is a change of attitude for BNN, as for years,
under the editorship of Jim O'Connell, the network was glad to inquire into
gold market manipulation and let GATA be part of the discussion. But O'Connell
died five years ago, perhaps taking BNN's courage with him.
Taylor's letter about BNN and GATA is excerpted

For some reason -- I'll let you imagine why -- the
news media treats the name "GATA" with the same contempt and unfairness
with which it treated Ron Paul.
How do I know free speech and fairness are denied
GATA, a civil rights organization?
While I have suspected for quite some time that
"GATA" was a dirty word in the minds of the establishment, I
received first-hand evidence of it last week when I was interviewed by a
producer for Business News Network in Canada before appearing on BNN's
"Top Picks" show yesterday. (You can watch my comments on Dynacor, Sandstorm, and Timmins Gold here: http://watch.bnn.ca/#clip733129.)
The producer wanted to know why I thought the gold
price had fallen on Thursday, as he thought it should have risen because of
the decline in stock prices and a downturn in confidence in the European
Union's resolve to "fix" Europe's economic problems. I suggested to
him that I thought the work of GATA helped explain one possible answer to
that question. I told him I thought GATA provided some pretty strong evidence
that the gold price is from time to time rigged by the same folks responsible
for the LIBOR fraud.
The producer responded by asking me to
please avoid talking about GATA. It was OK for me to say what I believed, he
said, but not to say the name "GATA," because, in his words,
"That causes a lot of trouble around here."
I can see this only as a form of media control by
the establishment. Just as the media was fearful that Ron Paul would catch on
en masse, so all manner of unfairness was used against him so he couldn't get
traction among masses of Americans, and so it is that someone high up in the
media world does not want the public to get the idea that the gold price is
rigged and thus headed to much, much higher levels -- because that concept,
if it were to become popular with people other than a few of us
"libertarian nut cases," could lead to a panic out of the dollar.
I have believed for some time, based at first on my
own intuition and then in recent years increasingly on the work of an army of
GATA writers and researchers, that this was the motive for the establishment's "managing" the gold price.
Most of you are no doubt very much aware of GATA,
but if you aren't, I urge you to go to www.GATA.org and begin digging into the evidence that gold and silver prices have
been at least "played with" and that because the paper markets have
been used to suppress metals prices, when and if the masses decide they want
to take delivery of the metals, the price of gold could indeed rise to untold
thousands of dollars per ounce.
Despite all the anti-gold propaganda, there is no
reason to doubt that we are in the bull market of a lifetime for both gold
and mining shares. Very soon we are going to see a dramatic increase in both
the real and nominal price of gold, and the gold shares are going to break
out as well. Hence my unflinching support of the yellow metal and gold mining
shares as well as silver and silver mining shares.
