Scott Cluthe's first guest tonight is Steve Wyer, author of Violated Online. Then a Special MLK tribute, my interview with Ivan Johnson, author of Black Warriors: The Buffalo Soldiers of World War II . Ivan J. Houston was a 19-year-old member of 3rd Battalion in Combat Team 370 of the 92nd (Buffalo Soldier) Division

Steven Wyer was involved in a major federal lawsuit that wound up on the Internet. With the click of a mouse, thirty years of credibility disappeared. The online accusations damaged his business, hurt his family and deeply affected his income. While Wyer used to live by the belief that all Americans are innocent until proven guilty, he learned the hard way it doesn’t work like that anymore. Since then, Steven Wyer has personally talked to hundreds of people with stories woven from the shadow side of the Internet. Their narratives would sound like fiction, were it not for the fact that he has helped many of them reclaim their lives and their dignity through his company Reputation Advocate

As Mr. Wyer writes in Violated Online, readers will learn how the American government has passed laws that, in attempting to support the right to free speech, leave its citizens open to be maligned with impunity by accusers both real and fictitious. In Violated Online, Wyer explains that our basic rights to privacy are being run over by data aggregators, cookies on our computers and profiteers.  Steven Wyer has lived with the shadow side of the Internet ever since his business, his family and his credibility were attacked without warning online. Now, through Reputation Advocate, Inc., he focuses his efforts toward helping others who have been slandered online as he was.
