CNN Writer Attacks Dan Bongino, Whining That He's Insulated Himself Against Deplatforming Attacks From CNN's Political Allies at Media Matters

Glenn Greenwald
@ggreenwald


The @NewYorker profile of Dan Bongino by CNN's @eosnos is so predictable you could write it yourself without reading it. It *laments* that the new online/media ecosystem Bongino uses is built to prevent censors like Media Matters from banning ideas -- as if that's a bad thing.

howdaretheyescapeourcensorship.jpg

Note that this is published at the New Yorker, but it's by a CNN " " " journalist. " " "

Whining that Bongino has set up his operations to be beyond the reach of his deplatforming operation allies at Media Matters.

And by the way, remember that CNN is a vital part of the deplatforming machine -- Media Matters demands a platforming, and then CNN pushes the deplatforming, campaigning for it until a tech company relents and grants it.

Back to Greenwald's commentary:


Whatever you think of Bongino or anyone else whose views you hate, it's incomparably dangerous to allow groups created by supreme DC scumbag David Brock to police our discourse, and it's good and healthy that new independent platforms deny them that power


One last point about the formulaic Bongino profile: it used to be that a
@TheNewYorker hit piece by a CNN writer would be harmful. Now: it doesn't matter. They've so whittled their credibility that the targets of their smears have larger audiences than they, making them impotent.

You know, that's true. I used to be more upset by this kind of thing, because I saw it as deadlier: It could really take you out.

Now it's like, lol, who cares? Everyone knows these people are just the world's lispiest, most soy-soaked Girl Gang, attacking the gang's enemies.

None of this is "journalism." It's just turf protection by a very effeminate gang of bullies and soyciopaths.

Everyone knows this -- including the soyciopaths themselves.

@RickDeVos

This highlighted quote is great.

So many legacy media institoooooshuns (and the sad figures who contribute to them) are still trying to coast on a decayed combo of perceived authority, prestige, and audience size. It's best to ignore them, but it's funny to call them out.

Via Brett from Twitchy, more musings from Greenwald on the collusion-filled guild defense actions of the dying legacy media:

Glenn Greenwald
@ggreenwald


To malign competitors who have more success, corporate outlets accuse them of catering to an insular like-minded audience. Pure projection! That's what The Atlantic/NewYorker axis does: speaks only to mainstream liberals & David Frum types. That's why they lost their influence.

Over the last decade, corporate outlets decided their only profit model was to feed a specific ideological camp a non-stop orgy of validation and flattery. That's why so many fail: Vice/Gizmodo/HuffPost/Vox = NYT/NewYorker/Atlantic. Same ideology, no dissent: purely insular.

As their audience, prestige and influence rapidly erodes, the go-to line of attack for old corporate outlets is to claim that their more successful, more independent competitors only speak to a homogenous audience. That's true of *them*: we speak to a diverse range of readers.

As if to prove his point: Tater jumps in -- well, flops in, sweatily, to join the Girl Gang beat-em-up on Bongino.

Brian Stelter
@brianstelter


This quote reminded me: Hyperpartisan hate-news aggregators like Bongino's site never publish nuanced profiles like The New Yorker's piece about Bongino. They're in a totally different biz...

He calls Bongino "hate-news" because he attacks the leftwing propaganda media. (If he means to insinuate he has "hate" for a race, he should say so -- but then, he'd risk a lawsuit for saying something so completely without foundation.)

So this ridiculous, repulsive Tater is claiming that Bongino is "a hyperpartisan hate-news aggregator" for attacking CNN.

Tell me, you obese malignant sack of hormonal crisis: When have you ever treated one of your media enemies with anything other than foaming, frantic hatred?

Your entire show is one stream of spastic hatred after the next. Entire hours of " " " media criticism " " " are directed, at your FinDom Jeff Zucker's direction, at tearing down a competitor, Fox News, with truly unhinged and hypercharged hatred.

Talk about the obese pot calling the portly kettle fat!

LOLGF, Tater.

==========

The media has lost a LOT of power over the last 20 years. And they are making no moves to indicate that they have any idea how to reverse course.

This is a good thing, to reverse the unnatural and ahistorical idea of the unbiased press. For most of printing history, there were a cavalcade of different voices competing in print, attacking each other with invective every day. The rise of broadcast media created this idea that the press should be neutral, a convenient fiction to maintain power for the big 3. Let that die. It's dumb.

Not differentiating between 'with' and 'from' probably means alot fewer of both; and without knowing the definition of 'hospitalized' that might further push the Moronic into "bad cold" territory.

It's amazing how seamlessly the messaging shifted from "California will have a drought year due to global warming" to "California will have a very wet year due to global warming". You have to admire their message discipline.

85 Here's a review of The New Yorker workplace, by someone who posted on Indeed.com:

3.0 stars [out of five]
It was okay most of the time.

I enjoyed working here for the most part...but at the beginning I felt I should've been getting paid more for all the work task I was completing...they gave me a 2$ raise when I was going to leave the first time.

Pros
Good employees

Cons
Bad pay

With the internet, that desire has become much more imperative than when it was just the AM radio band. They want to crush all outside media badly, now. And when the Left wants something badly, they get it, without exception.

188 Scientists in the 1970s estimated annual precipitation for the last couple of millennia in California using tree rings.

They came to two main conclusions: 1) California was prone to severe multi-year droughts; and 2) that the white settlement of California had occurred during a fairly wet period historically; and if California's climate shifted back to normal, there would be noticeably less water available.

None of this made the slightest difference to the politicians, of course. You'd think that would have inspired a crash program to improve California's water storage, but nothing was done.

When legacy media posts "MAGA kid slaps crying Indian", every other legacy media outlet confirms it and brings on guests to opine on white children being evil.

Then emerging media polices legacy media as well. Emerging media has more legitimacy because ultimately it actually investigates news and posts the facts.

That's .3% rate of myocarditis and .02% of death. Covid kills only .013% of the people. Looks like we might have been lied to and lied to and lied to.

Also, VAERS only gets about 1% of the actual reaction logged in.

310 The part in the New Yorker article that struck me the most, actually, was this part about conspiracy theories:

#1: In Bongino's world, it matters little that Trump's claims of rampant fraud were dismissed by his own top appointees at the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, as well as by federal and state judges. To the true believer, the lack of solid evidence simply confirms how well hidden the rigging was. In the study of conspiracy theories (a description Bongino rejects), this is known as "self-sealing": the theory mends holes in its own logic.

#2: "He takes the right kernel of highly charged, emotional content, with the right headline, and reaches a large enough platform."
The process is a kind of "narrative laundering," Jennifer Mercieca said. "You start with a story from a tainted source, like Alex Jones, and then you process it through something that is more trusted.

Substitute CNN for Bongino, and Steele Dossier for Alex Jones, and you get the Mueller Report.

Angel - Aerosmith. Was "our song" of my first girlfriend in college back in '95-'97. We wrote snail mail letters to one another as she went to IU and I went to Purdue (days before cell phones, only early days of e-mail and still had long-distance call rates in effect). She knew I was an Aerosmith fan and on one of her letters she sent to me before I was planning to visit her at IU, she ended the letter with the lyrics from Angel. "You're my Angel, come and [see] me tonight!" Changed "save" to "see", but gave me goosebumps and that warm and fuzzy feeling in my tummy of early days of puppy love. Still think of her all these years later whenever I hear it.

Intususseption is when the intestine starts to eat itself. It grabs ahold of itself and starts to push it through the inside of the downstream bit. Like a telescope, but a tube so the inner bit is folded over and reversed. This is bad.

Posted by: Archer at December 30, 2021 03:17 PM (gmo/4)

356 Something about misery and sadness brings out songs and poems. I sang several songs made up on the spot when my fiancee dumped me (on Christmas eve, the thoughtful little thing she was). The words just flowed, I am not a poet, but for a little while then, I was.

I dunno how good they were, and I don't remember them, I just remember they were good for me at the time.


Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at December 30, 2021 03:08 PM

I was never a poet until after my first relationship with my college girlfriend (one I referenced earlier) ended. I spent the next year writing poems to get the emotion and pain out. Like your experience, everything just seemed to flow... like I had been stabbed and my blood was flowing onto the paper and ending up in a new form. I ended up submitting them all to the Purdue Exponent my last semester to see if they would publish them in the Spring Literary Edition. To my amazement, they published my favorite one on the front page. Also like you, my poems probably don't impress anyone else, but for me, they were everything for me to get through that time.

Its not very good pop and she sounds like she's drugged up or just barely awake, mumbling and slurring her way through tepid lyrics. Its terrible, especially compared to the good 007 theme songs.

But still not the worst of them, heh. The 70s had a lot of very unfortunate, terrible theme songs for James Bond.

370 Cascades - Listen the Rhythm of the Falling Rain.

Another fantastic song from the 60s. For me, the best 60s pop stuff was NOT from the Stones or the Beatles or the Who or the Kinks, it was these smaller bands just doing neat, listenable pop. I can respect and enjoy the big acts and their work, I love Yes, etc. Its just... these songs fit the era and are so comfortable to listen to.

Your most sentimental song? For whatever reason. Go.

It snowed one night when I was dating a young woman who had just finished a nursing program. The roads were terrible but instead of being nice about my not being able to get to her, she lashed out at me. The song by Dan Fogelburg (Hard to Say) with the lyric 'Every time it snows she cries' always gets to me. She was nice and it coulda been something but omg a bitch on the phone.

My wife knows the story and hates the song. But Dan could sure write a tune from the heart.

The bulk of their listeners aged out of the 25-54 demo that radio advertisers covet. The oldies format is targeted at 45-54 year olds, so you kinda got the play the hits from when those people were 12-24, so today's oldies stations play music from about 1985 to 2000.

Then when Republicans regain power they'll refuse to clear these partisans out of the government, and they'll allow them to continue to persecute conservatives because god forbid they get in the middle of an investigation.

Starting their own platforms is a good first step, eliminating your enemies platforms and sources of power needs to be a close second.
