Vice, Newsweek Silent After Journalist Accused Of Robbing, Injuring A Woman At Cernovich Event

Published

on

Vice, Newsweek and The Guardian remain silent after a journalist claiming to work for the media outlets was accused of robbing a woman and injuring her in the process outside Mike Cernovich’s Columbia University event in New York on Monday evening.

As New York Daily News reports, police arrested 30-year-old Arvind Dilawar – who now faces robbery and possession of stolen property charges – outside the event after he allegedly ripped a cellphone out of a 34-year-old woman’s hands and ran off.

As Mike Cernovich reported earlier today via Twitter, that woman is believed to be a journalist who was covering the protest outside Mike Cernovich’s event.

As of earlier this afternoon, Dilawar’s website – which is currently password protected – lists him as a writer for The Guardian, Vice and Newsweek.

Those outlets have not responded to requests for comment from Cernovich Media related to the incident.

Specifically, Cernovich Media wanted to know how those outlets were handling the serious allegations aimed at Dilawar. The writer himself has also not responded to a request from Cernovich Media for comment.

The circumstances surrounding Dilawar’s alleged theft remain unclear but an account from at least one other journalist covering last night’s protest outside Columbia University indicates that alt-leftists were less than welcoming towards journalists.

The hostility appears to have been rooted in a fear of having their faces exposed to the public – probably not an unfounded fear considering the infamous tale of one Eric Clanton.

Despite attempts by the alt-left to disrupt Mike Cernovich’s event at Columbia yesterday, the Gorilla Mindset author’s speech went more or less smoothly. Catch the full speech below.

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:
