OMG: Yashar Ali Reports That He Got a Call From Dafna Linzer, Managing Editor and Overseer of NBC's and MSNBC's Political Coverage.
She Did Not Call to Lobby on Behalf of NBC and MSNBC.
She Called to Lobby on Behalf of... The DNC



Rest of his tweets quoted in normal text:


2. Dafna, who oversees the political coverage for NBC and MSNBC, was calling to bully me into delaying the publication of an innocuous scoop and at no point did she advocate for her network, it was only about the DNC.

Here's how this all started...

3. Yesterday morning I received a tip from a trusted source. The source told me the DNC would be announcing the dates of the first 2020 primary debates later that day. The source gave me the dates they would be announcing: June 26 and 27.

4. At first I thought it was just a fun tidbit that I could tweet out. But after I called several presidential campaign staffers I learn that all the Dem campaigns were desperate to learn what the dates were going to be. I decided to post the scoop as an item in my newsletter.

5. This wasn't a huge scoop but it was a decent one so I quickly called the DNC to fact-check the tip as I was running out of time: the dates would be announced on MSNBC in the 4:00 PM hour. It's important to note that almost of all of my communication with the DNC was off record

6. So I won't share most of what was said but can tell you it's pretty run-of-the mill stuff. I asked the DNC if my tip was accurate and they asked if they could call me back in 10 minutes. A few minutes later they called back and asked if I could delay posting my scoop

7. For another hour so they could go through their important notification calls to the state parties. I told them I couldn't wait as the news would leak and leave me without a story. That's all I can say about the call. Two minutes later I received a call from Dafna.

8. I've never spoken to Dafna by phone. A couple years ago she reached out to me to see if I wanted to have coffee and talk about working at NBC News but I declined as I was actively investigating NBC matters and thought it would be strange if I discussed a job.

9. So when I saw Dafna calling I assumed she would ask me to consider delaying my post so that MSNBC could announce it first. Given that this was an innocuous scoop and not some investigative story I wouldn't have lost sleep if I had delayed. But that's not why she was calling.

10. After exchanging pleasantries, Dafna told me that she received a call from the DNC and was told I had a story. Now it's not strange that the DNC called her, they were coordinating an announcement. What was strange was that she was calling me and taking a menacing tone

11. She asked if I could hold the story and I said I couldn't. She was agitated, "why not?" I said I'm not going to lose a scoop. Then she got angrier and said "Why not? It's not a big deal, let them make a few phone calls."

12. I realized that @DafnaLinzer, the head of all political coverage for NBC News and MSNBC wasn't calling to advocate for her network, she was calling to advocate the DNC's position. She wanted me to wait so they could call state party leaders.

13. I thought to myself "this is how people think it works." [That is, this is how suspicious types like us think that the political-media complex works-- ace] It's not. But Dafna was doing it. She kept pressing me. Now I acknowledged, for stuff that isn't about serious investigative reporting, there is no problem holding something. But I knew once others got the call

14. I would lose a scoop. Dafna reminded me she was a nat sec reporter at WAPO for ten years and they would hold stuff all the time (note: so people wouldn't get killed). "Why can't you just wait, let them make their calls, then you'll be the first to put it into print," she said

15. I couldn't believe what she was saying. Again, it was fine for me to print the story an hour later, beat her own network by three hours, she just wanted me to let the DNC inform state party leaders. Why the hell did she care?

16. I kept telling Dafna no, that I wasn't waiting. And she kept getting more frustrated. She was exasperated...she didn't understand why I couldn't wait for the DNC to make their state notification calls.

17. I was so surprised me that she was talking this way with a total stranger. The head of the political division was trying to bully me at the behest of the DNC over a dumb scoop (even though they may not have asked her to)

18. 2/3 of the way into the conversation Dafna started a sentence with "this is off the record." She hadn't said it at the beginning of our conversation and most important at no point did I agree when she said "off record" to keep it off record.

19. I'm not one of those gotcha reporters, I think it's bad for sourcing relationships to make people like they constantly feel like they have to say "off record." But Dafna isn't a source and she was calling to intimidate me, so she doesn't get the benefit.

20. She said "off record" one more time later in the call and again I just let her keep talking, I did not agree to anything. I then told her I had to go talk to my editor and she got even more frustrated and said "No. I want to talk to you about this."

21. I said "no, I want to go talk to my editor." Then she sent me over the edge and said "What's your editors name, I want to talk to them." She was trying to intimidate me..on behalf of the DNC. I ended the call.

22. After the call with Dafna I published the stupid scoop. Then I did a gut check and over the next two hours I called 10 experienced prominent reporters and told them the story. They were all stunned by what Dafna did and encouraged me to share it publicly.

23. I'm not naive to the fact that this incident is going to be twisted by some with an agenda to discredit the media and say they collude with political parties. But I think its more important to expose bad behavior then keep it under wraps. What Dafna did was unethical

24. There are plenty of times reporters will introduce people in politics to other reporters or TV people. I have done it many times, that is advocating for more coverage, not less. Dafna was advocating for me to not do something on behalf of a political party.

25. What I can't figure out is (and no one else I spoke to could understand), why open yourself up to this for a stupid story? How was this worth it?

END

I thank Yashar for his reporting here, and the courage in defying the Herd Mind in doing so.

But I can't help but think -- maybe those of us who think the Political-Media Complex does often work this way are more right about that than you'd care to admit to yourself, Yashar.

This woman seems to have had no shame or concern about what she was doing -- as you yourself state. That indicates to me that she didn't think what she was doing was unusual, over-the-line, or even outside of customary routine.

That's what she thinks -- and I'd say she is the expert about her own actions and behavior.

So at least this one person has been doing this thing so much she isn't even fazed by questions about doing it, and she also hasn't before been criticized publicly for doing it.

That tells me that you're a bit naive on this point, Yashar. Maybe you're just not seeing this even though it's going on all around you. Maybe the word is out that you're one of the ones who won't Play Ball so they don't usually try this with you.

But that doesn't mean that there aren't a lot of reporters known to Play Ball with the DNC that this tactic is used with, and it doesn't mean that those reporters don't routinely Play Ball.

I never got offered any money for a planted story. (Well-- I got offered twice. Two fairly minor sums. I turned both down.) Yet I know other people were offered such money.

If you asked me, I'd've told you that payola stories didn't happen in blogging, or almost never happened.

Yet... they did happen. I just wasn't on the gravy train. My experience was just my own experience. But other people had a, well, different experience.

Maybe I just wasn't on the list of those who Played Ball.

Those known to Play Ball would have a different view on the matter.

I wonder what Glenn "I've Become a Hack" Thrush's view on Playing Ball is.

I wonder what the view is of the reporters -- so far unnamed and unknown -- who Fusion GPS has admitted were paid for "research" purposes.

I wonder what view is shared by Fusion GPS' favorite reporters, "Fusion Ken" Dilanian and Evan "Best Friends with Glenn Simpson, Check Out the Pictures of Our Vacations Together" Perez.

I wonder about the view had by Jake Tapper, former Handgun Control, Inc. spokesman, and married to a Regional Field Manager of Planned Parenthood.

I wonder about the view taken by former Democrat page Chuck Todd, or the view taken by former Clinton War-Room manager George Stephanopolous.

You know, the guy who asked the front-running Republican candidate Mitt Romney about a fringe position of the anti-contraceptive movement that Romney had never once discussed or endorsed. I wonder who pitched him that strange question.

Maybe all of these people are Paragons of Journalistic Virtue who would never, ever, ever do favors for Democrat friends.

Or have Democrat friends do, in turn, a favor for them, like contrive a "news hook" for CNN so they could report about the existence of an unverified dossier and suggest it was the Rosetta Stone of collusion.

I wonder. I wonder about all these things.

Seems Like Someone Recently Discovered This Really Is How It Works Recently:




But you know who's here to defend the honor of his liberal media palz? Seth "The Cow That Walks on Two Legs" Mandel:



So conservative! (And oh -- speaking of people who did take money to plant stories.)

I must consume him, I must eat of his cuckmeat, I must devour his sad! and disgusting! flesh, and add his weakness to my own.

Back in 2009, already, we knew that Stephalogopolous and Carville and another media shithead were having daily strategy talks with Axelrod from the White House. Everyone just shrugged, for some reason, but we've known about that sort of overt coordination for a long time.

Yeah, I'm with you, Ace. I suspect that this *is* "how it works." This isn't some rube - it's the *chief* of their politics division. The fish rots from the head. If she's doing it, her subordinates are probably doing it. If she's doing it, at her level in a fairly small club, it shouldn't be shocking if her peers are doing it, too.

Also, Seth Mandel is worthy of no consideration, respect or belief. If he is saying this usually doesn't happen, it just makes me assume that it usually does.

112 Maybe the word is out that you're one of the ones who won't Play Ball so they don't usually try this with you.

------

That's the way this is.

My first experience with this was when I worked for a company that had a pretty bad culture of people sleeping around. The managers were all male. So, some of the floor girls, knowing this was the culture, would bang dudes to get ahead.

It was rampant. I'm not the type to step on someone else's dick, and this was all consensual stuff, so I never mentioned it - turned a blind eye.

One day, an especially flagrant one of these girls started flirting with me. I wasn't interested. I take my clients seriously. So I firmly disabused her of that notion, and made it clear that I didn't appreciate it when she did it with so-and-so, either, because we shared a client.

From that day forward, I saw no evidence of this behavior from anyone there ever again. I knew it was still happening, but once they figured out that I don't "Play Ball" it was as if it wasn't happening at all.

Once a toxic culture like that takes hold, people forget that it isn't normal or professional, and just assume everyone "Plays Ball."

I still remark that the one remarkable thing about that Media plan was that it had no plan on *how* to get the media to do the work of DNC.

That's kind of like the Acme Company having as a crucial part of their plan the cooperation of the completely independent Beta Corp, and not having a strategy on how to get that Beta to partner with them.

151 Its simple.

The Dems have controlled the MSM for years. They have lists of reporters they give stuff to, and expect them to publish.

They COUNT on it. They must control the narrative because they loose on the issues themselves.

Thus, this morning, the MSM had multiple stories about poor Blacks who just got out of jail after being falsely accused. That was the 'theme' for the day.

This reporter was not going to follow their lead, thus, he must be cast out.

Certainly naive. But it could've simply started with someone who was much more circumspect than this Linzer person making a much more subtle overture to Ali, and finding it to be a dry hole.

Then it's a matter of letting the others know "this one should be avoided."

If that's the case, the only thing that surprises me is that he still has a job. I wouldn't think they'd let an honest guy stay on board. Like Serpico.

Iced Earth: The Reckoning

You went too far this time, for this heinous crime
You will know defeat, Begging on your knees

One by one you'll fall, Your back against the wall
Nowhere to turn,You're sure to burn

Destiny's called us,It's the reckoning
This time it's for blood,Don't tread on me

The hours close at hand,We'll make our final stand
Justice shall be done,Nowhere to run

True evil broods in you,You're just a brainwashed fool
The coward close that hides,Spewing forth his lies

Revenge is not justice,It's the reckoning
This time it's for blood,Don't tread on me

Born of destruction, bred in agony
Is this my salvation?
From these ashes, i am your devastation

If it was up to me,Eye for an eye I'd seek
But the high road we will take,Lady Justice is at stake

The Judgement has been made,In blood it shall be paid
Death knows what to do,The horseman comes for you.

Destiny's called us
It's the reckoning
This time it's for blood
Don't tread on me
Revenge is not justice
It's the reckoning
This time it's for blood
Don't tread on me

These people were true believers. It mostly wasn't people just trolling to get a reaction. You could tell in the context, the writer was convinced it would happen. You have to wonder what those people, at least the honest portion of them, are thinking today.

I can't learn or appreciate anything from people who aren't honest. While I am always open to diverse points of view, it's only from people who can form them intellectually on their own. Most of these people in the media couldn't make an honest argument about what breakfast cereal they want. They would need to ask the DNC or their favorite liberal first. That's why most of them are so shallow and wrong. They have not done any of the hard work it takes to intellectually form a substantive position.

They COUNT on it. They must control the narrative because they loose on the issues themselves.

Thus, this morning, the MSM had multiple stories about poor Blacks who just got out of jail after being falsely accused. That was the 'theme' for the day.

262 I mean, just being naive enough to address this seriously disqualifies you from being a serious commentator. But this is noteworthy for a reporter openly throwing a managing editor over the side. Practically, she will get a job with a Democrat think tank, if not the DNC itself. But this shows that Ali, with or without permission, has kicked off the "rat out your bosses" phase of the scandal.

299 This story sort of ties into your previous post. But, you need to stop putting all this down to money. The media didn't just push the Russia story for money. They pushed it for ideological results. Four Associated Press reports investigated on behalf of Mueller (Manafort)...with results. Four prominent journalists received the un-redacted Class 1 FISA application from James Wolfe (presumably under the direction of members of the SIC). All media outlets continue to run cover for Hillary Clinton despite violation of the word of the federal law.

Most of these journalists don't give two shits about the success of their employers. They care about impeaching the current president who continuously pokes them with a stick. They care about getting someone back in that office that re-instates debilitating regulations back into the EPA. They care about protecting democrats at all costs so as to improve the likelihood of the previous.

Don't give them the credit and generosity of actually understanding the base fundamentals of capitalism. Hell, 90% of them will tell you that their employers securing a profit is a necessary evil.

They have to defend Foxx or suddenly the #Resisters might be liable for something, and they mustn't let that happen.

329 LITTLE EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) - A South Jersey man was arrested Tuesday after police say he was "fighting with himself" and exposed his genitals in a Little Egg Harbor Township Wawa. Police say they were called to the Mystic Islands Wawa at 9 p.m. Tuesday for a male acting suspiciously.

Witnesses say 37-year-old Jason Cramer was under the influence of something. After speaking with him, Cramer was sent on his way and said he had made arrangements for transportation home.

About 15 minutes later, police were called back to the Wawa after witnesses say Cramer began "fighting with himself" out front of the store, reportedly punching himself in the face and scratching his eyes.

330 It's not clear to me how this is supposed to matter to non journalists. Journalists are corrupt, probably more so than other professions. No one outside of a few hundred thousand loyal cable news viewers believe a word the legacy media spews. I guess it's another useful example for someone who still doesn't understand reality?

But there seems to be a tendency among the press, blogs included, to think you are the ones who are going to decide the outcome of our future. To be frank, you are the only ones who believe that. I don't claim to know whether we will heal, partition, have another civil war, or just disintegrate, but I know the next tweet, or blog post, or article in the the Times, WAPO, The Atlantic, Breitbart, WSJ, etc aren't going to matter that much either. An actual event will set things in motion (whenever that is), not media.

333 >>Chris Wallace needs to be eaten, too. Put him on the list.

He never will be missed, he never will be missed!
There's the female evening anchor of a lacrymating kind,
And the fellow from the Bulwark who likes it from behind,
And the actor with the mellow voice who thinks he's rather grand;
They all forgot to tell him when they filled his head with sand.
But it really doesn't matter who you put upon the list--
They'll none of 'em be missed, they'll none of 'em be missed.

334 The Wheel on the Bus are coming off
coming off, coming off
The Wheels on the Bus are coming off
in our wildest dream

The Walls of the House are closing in
closing in, closing in
The Walls of the House are closing in
all through DC

The President is all alone
increasingly, increasingly
The President is all alone
just like Tricky Dick

Worst Week Ever for the President
the President, the President
If its the Worst Week Ever for the President
How come we got screwed?

Inside our heads he lives rent-free
Lives rent-free, lives rent-free
Inside our heads he just signed a lease
'til 2024

336 The left corrupts everything it touches. I received a degree in journalism and was taught very clear ethical rules for the profession. I watch these rules violated every single day by the largest media organizations in the US. For the last two decades I have witnessed journalist casually inserting their opinions into straight news stories. Sometimes it is something banal as when a reporter says a politician 'believes x' instead of a politician 'said x.' Other times it's the use of a single unnamed source. Or it's the stories they choose to cover and the stories they ignore. But over the past 10 years, something worse is happening and that's the coordination between the left and news organizations. When every MSM reporter uses the exact same words to describe a situation (the walls are closing in, it's the beginning of the end), I feel like a HS English teacher reading 25 essays that all copied from the same online article.

Is anybody here surprised by this??


I am surprised at how persistent Dafna was.

I understand the story up to paragraph 6 and I understand that they might have asked someone to persuade him.

But at 11, it's *her* call that becomes the story. When he told her "no" again, anyone remotely sane would have just ended the call and let the DNC know he was going ahead.
