When Andrew Breitbart offered $100 000 for the person who gives him the Klein’s list of the liberal journalists in the USA I immediately checked the Russian web-sphere of the net in hope to get lucky. I wasn’t able to find it. However I stumbled on an interesting group of Russian journalists and media executives and guess what: Anna Chapman’s Dad may have been working with them.
First, don’t be surprised if Komsomolskaya Pravda gives the most accurate info on Vasily Kushchenko. The 4vlast (the forth power) is a group that was started by former journalists from the legendary paper.
Their goal: to affect politics through the power of the media. Kind of like the American liberal 400 JournoList.
The 4vlast is also the name of the tourist firm for which alleged Spy-Dad Kushchenko was organizing skydiving over Kenya vacations.
Some may say – they are not connected. May be. You make the call:
http://4vlast.ru/ – journalists and PR specialist who want to have power over the people of power
www.travel.4vlast.ru and firstname.lastname@example.org – tourist firm for vacations all around the world (Kushchenko in charge of Kenya – may be because he worked at the embassy there he knows the country best).
By the way – completely unrelated – he served in Kenya during the time Maurice Strong was there (wink, wink, Glenn Beck).
In Russia journalists are not ashamed to show off the power and connections they have. The 4vlast is a very popular movement. There is initiative where all Top editors of all the top media in Russia can join a club – a Forth Power Club. I guess they will just have a drink or something while talking about all the power they have.
Here in the USA all this is hidden. Andrew Breitbart is offering $100 000 for the list and nobody is coming out. In Russia they have web-sites. Power to the media!
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia (MID) is mumbling and not offering info on the alleged Spy-Dad. Komsomolskaya Pravda is well ahead.
Could it be that it is because he was working for a tourist firm that was also handling an awful lot passports and visas? Part of the tourist services. Did he use his connections to provide services that MID is not happy with now? What other tourist firms are connected.
Alleged Spy-Dad Kushchenko was a contact (with the same telephone number as the Kenya vacations) for the St. Petersburg edition of Mrs World competition organized by the 4 Vlast company:

Контактное лицо: Василий Кущенко. http://mrsworld.ru
He was a pretty busy man!
What if the Russian Forth Power journalists are comrades with the 400 US liberal JournoList? What if the list Andrew Breitbart is looking for is a list of 400 KGB spies?
Disclaimer: To all former and current KGB operatives – this is just a rhetorical exercise in conspiracy theory.
