Two Leftist Journalists RIDICULE their Peers Over Barr

Another of my predictions slowly taking form. I predicted that soon the Leftist media would begin eating each other.

You can only live so long on tainted oxygen. Clearly, some Leftist political media have seen the light.

Matt Vespa captured part of an exchange between two Leftist media types. In discussing AG Barr’s memo to Congress and how the Left blow gaskets over it, Vespa writes on the buried sentence in the memo:

When Barr pressed Mueller on whether he thought Barr’s memo to Congress was inaccurate, Mueller said he did not but felt that the media coverage of it was misinterpreting the investigation, officials said.”

He continued,

So, nothing changed. There’s still no evidence of Russian collusion. Trump is still president. The liberal media still ate it for peddling a myth for two years. And the Left still lost. We still won. Period. If there are two reporters that veer to the Left that haven’t drunk the Kool-aid on the Russia nonsense, it’s The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald and Michael Tracey, formerly of the Young Turks. Yes, you will probably disagree with them, but on this—they’re spot on concerning the media’s integrity possibly being irreparably damaged with this Russian collusion fiasco and the level of insanity that has grown on the Left because of it.

Vespa captures Tracey’s tweets. The first tweet discusses what Leftists call “Barr-gate”:

Barr-gate might be the stupidest-gate, and there have been too many stupid-gates to count

I love the part about all the “stupid-gates”, specifically the quantity.

Before I continue with his tweets, let’s look at who Michael Tracey is. 

He’s a member of The Young Turks (no, he’s not Turkish). But his boss is. And because of “RussiaGate”, he and his boss were at odds as fellow progressive Caity Johnstone noted:

I have said that I don’t want to get involved in any of the infighting on the true progressive left, but since The Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur appears to have gone full Maddow on us I see the following not as progressive infighting, but as a full-fledged establishment liberal using his mainstream platform to punch down on an honest progressive journalist whose integrity offends him.

On a recent TYT panel featuring four completely uncritical Russiagate conspiracy theorists furiously agreeing with each other that Donald Trump definitely colluded with the Russians to win the 2016 election, Uygur went on a frantic, hyperventilating rant wherein he criticized those on the left who accuse Russiagate conspiracy theorists of participating in a frantic, hyperventilating fact-free McCarthyist feeding frenzy. Cenk then slammed the brakes on the discussion and went out of his way to communicate to his 3.3 million YouTube subscribers that one of his own journalists, TYT’s Michael Tracey, has “got blinders on” when it comes to Russia.

And the Democrats say Republicans are divided?

The next tweet from Tracey mocks all the various “bombshell(s)” the Leftist media concocted over the past few years.

If you’re even passingly familiar with how Trump/Russia “bombshell” news cycles have worked for the past three years, you’d know that media idiots melodramatically lose their minds for about 24 hours, then the entire thing fizzles and everybody moves on to the next fake outrage

Finally, Tracey attacks one of his own, specifically David Simon.

David Simon, who I’ll refrain from describing as a “f*ckmook,” apparently didn’t read last night’s Washington Post story. If he did, he would have seen that Mueller affirmed the accuracy of Barr’s March 24 letter. He was complaining about media coverage 

David Simon describes himself as follows:

Author, journalist, and TV writer/producer. Angriest Man in Television is faint praise indeed.

I hasten to add: Leftist lackey.

Tracey continues discussing the “delusional maniacs” in media with this tweet:

The delusional maniacs who run the US media are convinced (wrongly) for the 10 millionth time that they were right all along about the Trump/Russia conspiracy. This will never go away. They are moving toward impeachment. We are trapped in this nightmare forever

Rejoice Conservatives, pro-Trumpers, and all those who elected the man who will drain the swamp. Isn’t this what every American wishes for? Truth in government.

And what of Glenn Greenwald? He’s an editor at The Intercept. I will leave you to figure out Greenwald’s politics. But here is what he tweeted in response to Tracey:

It’s like those who couldn’t believe Hillary really lost to Trump & kept waiting for people to come & make it right (ie the Electoral College coup). They can’t believe Mueller concluded no evidence establishes Trump/Russia conspiracy so they’ll cling to anything that reverses it:

Apparently, some “progressives” still have a bit of Truth DNA available.

Watch as these cracks in the ground of the Left become chasms. Don’t worry, it won’t take long before you see many more.
