Even though I don't follow this man, I have come across his tweets because they often trend. I admit to reading the tweets that have come across my timeline or have been posted here, not knowing how or if he is actually connected to the journalistic universe.

 

Anyway, I haven't yet read this but it seems intriguing.

This guy rapidly became a professional scold and drama chaser. It doesn't surprise me. This explains his recent Twitter meltdowns.

 

Here is the long-form LA Magazine piece the DB story links to - the bigger story.

Trigger warning: it's the New York Times but this Op-ed reminded me of two things: a post about AT&T and Warner Bros. and the whole Discovery deal and how often these ventures become huge drains of money and resources, then flop before these corporations dump it, then move on to the next sure- to-eventually flop venture.

Oops, meant Warner Bros, not Time Warner, a previous venture that eventually flopped

The usual hacks rushing to cradle their little baby was embarrassing beyond belief. She got what she wanted - a future show at Fox News - and the press get to tut-tut and wag their finger. They also got a quote the GOP will play to death from now on ("I'm not confident in anything"), and they exist to help Republicans at any cost.

Capitol Hill reporters are IMO openly, aggressively scornful of the effort by Schumer to put forth S1 next week regardless of not having 60 votes. I never hear this kind of relentless hectoring about GOP choices, but that's because they love McConnell's 'savvy.'

That bit about Twitter Parlamentarians is especially typical of the smug Beltway, as, like someone said in the replies, Twitter Parlamentarians are as valid as the real one.

 

They know Manchin is too much of a coward to end the filibuster. They love the GOP and would do anything to get them back in power. This is a very happy time for them.

Karen Attiah works for the Washington Post, which tells you - again - what a shitty paper that is, one that does not get the deserved criticism and scrutiny that NYT rightfully gets.

Bruenig made sure to get the expected anti-Semitic digs of the far left in, and his phony hatemonger of a wife made sure to do her tee hee routine while directing attacks toward those who have no stomach for it:

 

 

Speaking of the hatemonger, she recently wrote a "defense" of Ilhan Omar which is just using Omar as an incoherent screed against a party she despises. 

 

 

Just another reason not to give your money to the Atlantic.
