What you’re about to watch or listen to is my most important podcast so far. Today I’m speaking with Zac Kriegman.

Zac is a former director of data science at Thomson Reuters, perhaps the world’s most important news organisation. He’s a former director because he was fired after sharing research on the company's internal social media platform showing that American police killed more unarmed white people than black people as a proportion of the population. This wasn’t just one statistic thrown carelessly into a group chat. Zac compiled a 12,000 word report with the rigour you’d expect from a director of data science earning 350,000 a year. In that report, he also pointed out that the Black Lives Matter movement are probably responsible for the deaths of thousands. He also noted Thomson’s biased coverage when it came to BLM.

As you can imagine, several outspoken white knights pounced on Zac’s bravery. And soon he was no more. You’ll hear Zac tell the rest of the story in the podcast and you can find the link to his Substack here.

Zac is obviously taking legal action and you can support him in that fight, too. This case really is a litmus test for America and the western world. A billion people read or see Reuters news every day. And as you’re about to hear, they aren’t exactly getting the impartiality Reuters claim to offer. 

Apologies for the slight hiss on the recording today, but without further ado, I give you my most important guest to date: Zac Kriegman.
