Tim King is a Neo Nazi sympathesizer who is a disciple of Bob Nichols, the
mouthpiece for Leuren Moret and Doug Rokke.  His pseudo news website has
long spouted false information about depleted uranium and birth defects
including the Nichols claim that DU has cause Israeli sperm production to
drastically decrease.  Some of King's claimed past journalist connections
have checked out, but more recent connection claims have not.
