Ex-Gawker Group Launches TellOnTrump.Com With Ad Campaign Targeting Potential Government Leakers

Tyler Durden's picture

Apparently emboldened by the successful efforts of the mainstream media to evict Michael Flynn as Trump's National Security Advisor, courtesy of an avalanche of leaks from the 'intelligence community', a group of ex-Gawker media sites, now owned by Univision Communications, has launched a new website called "TellOnTrump.com" with the explicit mandate to extract "information about the conduct of Donald Trump or his administration" from potential leakers within a variety of government agencies.  Per the Tell On Trump website:

One thing we know about Donald Trump is that there are a lot of things Donald Trump doesn't want people to know about. If you’ve reached this page, you might have information about the conduct of Donald Trump or his administration that you’d like people to know about. Here’s how you can tell us.


Who are we? The Special Projects Desk of Gizmodo Media Group. We are an investigative team that reports stories about political, cultural, financial, and technological power for Gizmodo, Fusion, Deadspin, Jezebel, Jalopnik, Kotaku, and the other Gizmodo Media Group web sites.


You may send us messages, tips, files, images, videos, or documents through Gizmodo Media Group's SecureDrop portal. SecureDrop is designed to protect your anonymity, frustrating attempts by anyone, including us, to identify you as the source. For instructions on how to use it, go here.

Tell On Trump


Silly question, but we do often wonder why this resolve to uncover inappropriate behavior in Washington D.C. by our elected officials was mysteriously absent while Hillary Clinton was operating an illegal private email server, ignoring federal document retention policies and knowingly violating Congressional subpoenas...but we digress.

Meanwhile, the group has even launched a targeted advertising campaign on Facebook designed to reach out to folks that list various federal agencies as their employers.  Per the 'Special Projects Desk':

We at Gizmodo Media Group have launched what we are calling the Special Projects Desk to pursue investigative projects across all of our sites—Deadspin, Fusion, Jezebel, Gizmodo, Jalopnik, Kotaku, the Root, and Lifehacker. You can read about our team and how to contact us here.


We want to make sure that anyone with access to newsworthy information—particularly about the conduct of the new presidential administration—knows how to reach us. Accordingly, we’ve built a web site, TellOnTrump.com, with instructions on various ways to reach out to our reporters securely. Our tips line, 917-999-6143, is accessible via voice, text, Signal, WhatsApp, Line, and Allo. We also have a Secure Drop portal that permits sources to anonymously send us documents and tips. Or we can be reached via email at tips@gizmodomedia.com.


Through targeted ads on Facebook, we’re reaching out to users who list federal agencies as their employers, and we are exploring ways to advertise in public spaces near federal buildings in Washington, D.C. If you work in the federal bureaucracy and want to bear witness, anonymously or otherwise, to the way the Trump Administration is asserting its authority, we are here to listen. And if you know someone who works for the government and may have information to share, please direct them to TellOnTrump.com.



Sure, nothing "fake" about explicitly targeting a single party/candidate...just solid, unbiased investigative journalism at it's finest.

In a sane country, the owner of this site would be immediately arrested, tried and hung for treason. Of course, there was none of this virtuous "curiosity" about the witch, whose dirty deeds were already out in the open. Hypocrisy is one of the most detestable traits in man - and the Left abounds in it.

Trump Yanukovich will fritter and twitter, until he meets his Maidan voyage out the WH door.

No POTUS balls to go hard on Sedition and soft coup.  So sad.

Sorry for the sarcasm, but even I am shocked and amazed at his pussy footing and inaction. Shameful. Unbecoming. Unmanly.

Of course, with Dense Pence, Rinse Preibus and Jared Diamonds Kushner around him, what else do you expect?

I smell desperation. As the media, the DNC, and the neocons get wiped out at every turn and more Americans praise The Donald, they are getting desperate.


I hear Hillary was pur on higher doses of dilantin for her seizures and they try to keep her away from reading the polls that show Trump way ahead and loved by Americans as he keeps his campaign promises to do what he said he'd do (unlike bin Bama who lied 24/7 and never kept one promise except to "fundamentallly screw over Americans").

Has Hitlery watched YouTubes of Bill's 1995 State of the Union address where he got a standing ovation for "wanting" to do what Trump has initiated in his first weeks of office?  Oh, no. Why not.

Gizmodo are deranged and pro-war. Go to Jalopnik for example... they are increasingly cross-posting hysterical fearmongering pro-MIC military rah-rah articles that have nothing to do with the site's subject matter. They are basically the same as NYT and CNN but less professional. The Mil. articles read like they are simply lightly rehashing partisan press releases that someone else is feeding them continuously.

It looks like we have another Million Dollar Bonus in the lovely HRClinton, folks.  Remember... the best strategy is to completely ignore the troller.  Once you see the name, don't even read the first word... it will only raise your blood pressure needlessly, which is its intent.

Karl Marxist's picture

I cannot totally disagree in your point about what might be the media painted perception even ZH is feeding to you. Did you not look at the article here on Trump "Shadow manning" up his administration?  Trump's going after human traffickers and that's who is behind all the stupid narratives about Flynn and Russia. Russia. It's spread all over Europe. Putin, a very religious man, strong Russian Catholic Orthodoxy, knows the same shit about this as Washington but they can only really move with the help of Washington. Forget Europe and Britain. They invented all the child sacrifice Satanism jazz -- where the priests went at night for their real jollies.

At TellOnObama.com, we are looking for people who maybe went to school with Barry, assuming he actually attended the colleges he claimed to. Maybe you smoked dope with him. Perhaps you smoked his pole, or he yours! Maybe back then you were a filthy commie and he told you his dreams of destroying the USA and capitalism. If you have juicy stories, let us know!

While you're at it, we need a better PizzaGate.com.  Time to go after the enablers as well as the , umm... suspects?

Why so quiet?

TeamDepends's picture

Maybe you live in Chicago and you have a sensational story (and photos) of the Wookie, before it came out as "female". Perhaps you know the birth parents of "Sasha" and "Malia". We are especially looking for descendents of Harrison J. Bounel, 'cuz Barry be using your granddaddy's SS#! Finally, if anyone who frequents Chicago bath houses is willing to regale the world with harrowing, lurid tales of Barry, ahem, "making the rounds" it is your duty to step forward. Your country needs you.

Those of you who are still alive, anyway.

Maybe they can give us a clue where his real birth certificat eis or where he was actually pooped out. I'm gonna write that number down just in case I see something (like Clinton 'seth riching" someone).

WarPony's picture

Well, I'm pretty sure the woman who signed O'Zero's pdf-file birth certificate would have survived the plane crash had the big guy not kept kicking her back under the water.  Is that relevant now?

tmosley's picture

I was going to say that it isn't, but it does come awfully close to espionage. If they are paying for information it is definitely super-illegal.

That said, it doesn't seem much different from what Wikileaks did and does, save that it is being used for a far more cynical and destructive purpose.

They are homosexuals, what do you expect from them?

They hate America because they are queers.

Treason is a way of life for them, trust me I have known these perverts all my life.

Obama would see to it there were lots of bodies floating in the Potomac River. As soon as trump gets his full team into place and fires the Obama seditious trolls, he needs to play harder ball with these people.

Where were they when Soweeto was gassing little kids in syria and Hillary slaughtering innocent women and chidlren in Libya?

Americans are concered about jobs, illegals, crime, terrorism...while these left wing fanatics are trying to tear the nation apart with their subversive actions most likely funded by soros, Hillary, the Clinton Krime Family and Obama lovers.

NumberNone's picture

What do we expect from a group of 18-35 year olds that grew up under 8 years of a press fawning over the immaculate Obama and got all their news from Comedy Central?

They never saw a president criticized in their life. They never heard any of the people that they watched on television express a single view other than supporting obama and Hillary and globalism in their formative years. They look at the world in a series of snarky comments and no confrontation. They are reacting how infants react. It's fucking sickening.

PT's picture

Yes, but now it is 8 years later and they still don't have a job and they still can not afford a mortgage and they still have massive student loans.  Surely something in there will finally bubble to the surface and make them question their world view?  Or is it still too soon?

NumberNone's picture

In the major cities they are becoming the majority of the workforce and they sit in giant circle jerks making fun of trump and trump voters. They do not tolerate or understand dissenting views.

You need age 40+, still in the same position then the realisation will dawn upon them on how much they have been conned.

Won't work , except for the hard left fuktards. The average American wants the CIA, shit posting news etc to shut the fuk up and let the man work. Pray to God he is successful . I don't think he can, but it might blunt it some.
