The internet is a valuable source of information; but, unlike printed publications, it cannot be relied upon for long-term reference. News articles may be removed from their web sites, or the sites may be terminated. This presents a challenge to authors who want to document the origin of their information.

The purpose of this page is to provide reliable access to the Internet references appearing as footnotes in the writings of G. Edward Griffin. References are sorted alphabetically by the headline shown in the footnotes. Words such as "A" and "The" may be omitted. Clicking on the headline will take you to the original source. Should that no longer be on line, the "cached" link will take you to the version saved on our own server. In some cases, the cached version will not include advertisements or images relating to the article, but the text will be complete.

If this web site should become unavailable, we will attempt to provide CDs containing the cached versions of the references shown below. If you would like to have one, please send whatever you feel is appropriate to cover the cost of a blank CD plus labor, shipping, and handling to The Reality Zone, P.O. Box 4646, Westlake Village, CA 91359. It is our goal to prevent this historical information from falling into the Orwellian "memory hole."
