Blacklist disinfo videos

The clip stars somebody purportedly named David E. Martin, Ph.D., promoting himself as a National Intelligence Analyst.  His pitch, basically, is that the CDC is behind the Covid-19 pandemic.

Rogues Gallery 
Let's have a place to build up a list of trolls, shills, bullies and liars.  How about a Rogues Gallery, a list of Distrusted persons or organs?

"Bring the heat" to liars 
Liars will only stop if somebody makes them pay. Create a group of active disinfo resisters that will penalize the worst offenders. Organize boycotts and other campaigns to embarrass, shame and punish promoters of toxic information.

Augment the KB to provide machine-interpretable claims and evidence 
Conjectures, nuggets, and jewels all represent claims as natural language assertions. If these were expressed in a formal language such as logic or Mathematica, the KB could power machine reasoning. This would open new spaces for exploiting trust assessments by applications that understood and reason with formalized knowledge.
