The two officer/key employees listed on the Justice Through Music Project IRS Form 990 are Jeffrey Cohen and Brett Kimberlin. Although he cofounded Velvet Revolution US with Brad Friedman, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is not listed on that organization’s 990. Cohen and Friedman are, but not Kimberlin.
Who is Brad Friedman?
Friedman’s Wikipedia entry begins with this warning: This article may contain improper references to self-published sources. Friedman does have a documented history (Exhibits O and P) of shading the truth.
He’s a blogger. His blog is called BradBlog, and it’s a fairly minor league site with traffic roughly comparable to Hogewash! (but still much greater than the JTMP and VRUS sites combined). He has a one-hour-per-week radio show (The Bradcast) on KPFK, a station that routinely ties for dead last in the ratings in the LA market. He hosts a “nationally syndicated” (on five stations!) program called Green News Report. He’s Brett Kimberlin’s partner in VRUS.
Lee Stranahan has written about the significance of Kimberlin/Friedman/VRUS. You should read his piece.
