Glenn Greenwald: The Journalistic Tattletale and Censorship Industry Suffers Several Well-Deserved Blows

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


I won’t pretend to understand these people.

They are humorless, hypersensitive, unfriendly middle class scolds and hall monitors who are obsessed with policing thoughts and words. They are the enemy of independent minded people.

They are control freaks who are obsessed with micromanaging things which ultimately don’t matter as opposed to practical goals like changing public policy. They believe their own personal opinions are the standard of morality. These people are enraged by slight differences of opinion even with other Americans on the Left. It is politically toxic and self defeating behavior.

Glenn Greenwald:

“A new and rapidly growing journalistic “beat” has arisen over the last several years that can best be described as an unholy mix of junior high hall-monitor tattling and Stasi-like citizen surveillance. It is half adolescent and half malevolent. Its primary objectives are control, censorship, and the destruction of reputations for fun and power. Though its epicenter is the largest corporate media outlets, it is the very antithesis of journalism.

I’ve written before about one particularly toxic strain of this authoritarian “reporting.” Teams of journalists at three of the most influential corporate media outlets — CNN’s “media reporters” (Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy), NBC’s “disinformation space unit” (Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny), and the tech reporters of The New York Times (Mike Isaac, Kevin Roose, Sheera Frenkel) — devote the bulk of their “journalism” to searching for online spaces where they believe speech and conduct rules are being violated, flagging them, and then pleading that punitive action be taken (banning, censorship, content regulation, after-school detention). These hall-monitor reporters are a major factor explaining why tech monopolies, which (for reasons of self-interest and ideology) never wanted the responsibility to censor, now do so with abandon and seemingly arbitrary blunt force: they are shamed by the world’s loudest media companies when they do not. …”

These people also think I am the “bigot.”

The term was coined to describe fanatics who have their mindset. They get off on hunting and destroying the lives of other people. I’m easy going compared to these people. I truly don’t give a shit what other people believe. Just look at the comment section on this website.
