All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
My name is Nick Bryant, and I’m a journalist and author. Welcome to my website. For two decades, friends and colleagues have told me that I need a personal website, so this website is my belated, grudging leap into the 21st century. Plus, I’m often confused with the BBC journalist and author Nick Bryant, but he’s much better looking than me.
My writing career has wended through various incarnations over the last three decades, but I’ve often focused on the plight of lower-socioeconomic children in the United States. I spent seven years investigating a child sex trafficking network that was covered up by state and federal authorities, culminating in The Franklin Scandal: A Story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse, and Betrayal. The trafficking network I wrote about in The Franklin Scandal has been the focal point of considerable misinformation and/or disinformation on the Internet. Individuals who, perhaps, suffer from psychiatric disorders have woven the Illuminati and shape shifting reptilian ETs into the narrative.
But the book’s foremost transgressor has been Wikipedia. The “Franklin child prostitution ring allegations” Wikipedia page has been under siege by unscrupulous Wikipedia “editors,” and they’ve intentionally made it nonsensical.
The Franklin Scandal and the Epstein scandal are quite similar in the sense that both child trafficking networks were covered up by state and federal authorities and the mainstream media was complicit, because it never demanded justice for the children whose lives had been disfigured. I started investigating the Epstein network in 2012, when I acquired his "Little Black Book"—seven years before the case broke nationally. I pitched an article on the Little Black Book for three years to mainstream media outlets, but, like The Franklin Scandal, my pitches were met with unbridled skepticism and incredulity. In 2015, finally, Gawker published the Little Black Book and accompanying articles. I found it ironic that Gawker, considered to be the mean kids in the media, had the fortitude to publish a story about children whose lives have been disfigured with impunity, whereas media outlets ostensibly immersed in integrity had rejected the story.
I'll be releasing a new book in the fall, The Truth About Watergate: A Tale of Extraordinary Lies and Liars, which will detail the false narrative that our history books have imparted about the infamous Watergate affair. Look for the book in fall, near the 50th anniversary of Watergate.
