Leftist Hero Valerie Plame-Wilson Apologizes For Promoting Article Blaming Jews For America’s Problems

Published

on

Earlier today, obscure left-wing starlet, Valerie Plame-Wilson, retweeted a bizarre anti-semitic article from Philip Giraldi at UNZ.com, which suggested that Jewish media personalities should be identified whenever they are making comments on TV — like a warning label on a bottle of rat poison — so that the public can be aware of their dangerous ulterior motives of promoting Zionism.

In case you’re suffering from “Gosh-that-name-sounds-familiar” syndrome let’s review a bit about Mrs. Plame-Wilson.

Valerie Plame-Wilson was once a relatively unremarkable CIA analyst who had been thrust into Left-wing stardom after her cover was blown by a Washington Post article by Robert Novak in 2004. The Left quickly blamed the Bush Administration for leaking her name as retribution for her husband, Joe Wilson’s, New York Times op ed piece in which he claimed to have debunked Bush’s assertion that Iraq had been seeking “yellow-cake” uranium from Niger and therefore the whole Iraq war was based on a lie.

Of course Joe Wilson’s story was later itself debunked as Bush had based his statement on British intelligence (which the British still stand by). But in the aftermath, Plame-Wilson and her husband found fame and fortune and lucrative book deals and movies.

These days, Plame-Wilson is desperately trying to keep herself relevant. She has a website and a Twitter account in which she loves to opine on any number of left-wing causes.

Which brings us to her current fifteen minutes of fame.

When she was quickly criticized for today’s tweet, she defended it by tweeting that “re-tweeting doesn’t mean endorsement.”

She then tweeted a few more tweets defending the basic argument of the article itself: that wealthy and well-connected American Jews are pushing political policies that will get the U.S. into a War with Iran.

“Put aside your biases and think clearly,” she lectured in one tweet.

But then reality set in and two hours later, she tweeted an apology, saying she had “missed the gross undercurrents to this article” and didn’t do her “homework on the platform this piece came from.”

She also tweeted that there was “so much there that’s problematic” (in the UNZ article) and that her mistake was “a doozy” and that she had merely “skimmed” the article and “zeroed in on the neocon criticism and shared it without seeing and considering the rest.”

But the Washington Examiner points out that Plame’s claim to have been unfamiliar with the platform of the article—that is UNZ.com—seems a little disingenuous since she has re-tweeted several articles from them over the past few years.

Articles, for example, about Israelis dancing for joy on 9/11 and articles titled “Why I Still Dislike Israel.”

She must have missed the undercurrents on those articles as well.

If this is the quality of research and discernment Mrs. Plame-Wilson is only capable of, we should all thank God that she’s no longer working in the CIA.

New Yorker Fires Male Feminist Ryan Lizza Over Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Published

on

The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza is the latest entrant on the “shitty men in media” list to be accused of sexual misconduct, giving further credit to the list’s veracity.

The Daily Beast quotes The New Yorker as stating that they have “learned that Ryan Lizza engaged in what we believe was improper sexual conduct.”

“We have reviewed the matter and, as a result, have severed ties with Lizza,” the outlet’s statement reportedly continues. “Due to a request for privacy, we are not commenting further.”

In a statement to BuzzFeed, Lizza is quoted as stating, “I am dismayed that The New Yorker has decided to characterize a respectful relationship with a woman I dated as somehow inappropriate.”

The “shitty men in media list” had Lizza pegged for inappropriate direct messages to women.

Lizza is now the seventh man on the list, which was first discussed by Cernovich Media in late October.

Six Men From ‘Sh*tty Men In Media List’ Have Resigned Or Been Fired… Who’s Next?

Published

on

A recap of the infamous “shitty men in media” list finds that since its existence was first publicized by Cernovich Media in late October, six men on it have either resigned or been fired from their positions at notable media outlets.

Cernovich Media first came across the list – which circulated among female journalists in the form of a spreadsheet – after it came into the hands of leading journalist Mike Cernovich.

At the time, a number of media outlets attempted to question the list’s veracity. The Cut, for instance, deemed it “unsubstantiated” and smeared Cernovich as attention-seeking.

While many of the men on the list remain free of formal complaints or evidence of wrongdoing, the appearance of six on the list appears to have been justified through internal investigations/proceedings at their respective outlets.

On the list, Michael Hafford – formerly of Broadly – was accused by multiple women of physical abuse, non-consensual choking, forced drug use, non-consensual barebacking during sex and inappropriate communication.

In November, a spokesperson for Broadly’s parent company Vice confirmed that Hafford has been banned as a contributor as a result of his alleged behavior.

Leon Wieseltier also appeared on the list, where he was accused of “workplace harassment.”

News broke in late October that Wiesltier’s magazine – which was set to launch that month – had been suspended.

Wiesltier – who worked for The Atlantic and The New Republic – also issued an apology, stating, “for my offenses against some of my colleagues in the past I offer a shaken apology and ask for their forgiveness.”

Next up is Hamilton Fish, who appeared on the list where he was accused of assaulting an employee at The Nation.

In early November, news broke that Fish had resigned as president and publisher of The New Republic. This news came one day after The New Republic announced it would be launching an investigation into Fish’s behavior.

Lorin Stein resigned as editor of The Paris Review after admitting to behaving inappropriately with women he worked with. This appears to be consistent with allegations leveled against Stein on the ‘shitty men in media list,’ where he stands accused of “workplace harassment.”

GQ political correspondent Rupert Myers lost his gig in October after numerous allegations surfaced concerning his behavior. The ‘shitty men in media list’ has Myers accused of inappropriate physical contact, harassment and reaching out to women in “professional context” before turning “very creepy.”

Coming in at #6 is David Corn – the Mother Jones and MSNBC affiliate who was outed in early November as having done a number of questionable things, including making rape jokes, inappropriately touching his coworkers and making unwanted references to their anatomy.

If the circumstances surrounding these men is any indicator, things aren’t looking too good for the other folks on the ‘shitty men in media list.’

INTERNET REACTS: Mike Cernovich Breaks Bombshell John Conyers Sex Abuse Story

Published

on

The internet is exploding at the sensational breaking news by Mike Cernovich about Democrat Rep. John Conyers’ repeated sexual abuse of female staffers and use of taxpayer funds for settlements related to that abuse.

Buzzfeed recognizes Mike Cernovich gave them the story, stating:

“Cernovich said he gave the documents to BuzzFeed News for vetting and further reporting, and because he said if he published them himself, Democrats and congressional leaders would “try to discredit the story by attacking the messenger.” He provided them without conditions. BuzzFeed News independently confirmed the authenticity of the documents with four people directly involved with the case, including the accuser.”

BuzzFeed’s article continues:

“Documents from the complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News include four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former staff members who allege that Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing their hands sexually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public. Four people involved with the case verified the documents are authentic.”

Over on Twitter, reaction to the news of Cernovich’s involvement in the story has been swift and sometimes salty:
