GLENN GREENWALD—An incredibly vicious and protracted war is being waged, seemingly with no end in sight, among numerous prominent liberal and left-wing commentators who work primarily on YouTube. The conflict erupted on May 26 when Cenk Uygur — the founder and long-time host of The Young Turks, the largest liberal-left YouTube platform — baselessly and falsely accused independent journalist Aaron Maté of being “paid by the Russians,” while his co-host, Ana Kasparian, spouted innuendo that Maté was “working for” unnamed dictators.

PAUL EDWARDS—Insofar as it was a gross deception—which it was—this was not intentional. The powerful men who produced it had no dark, nefarious design to inflict an oppressive, exploitative system on their country and their people. They, to a man, it seems, meant well by their lights in the cultural context in which they matured. The flaws, biases, and gross injustices so obvious in it from a current perspective were, in large measure, the prejudices of all European ruling classes of the time and, indeed, the consensus of the most acute, discriminating philosophical minds of the era.

Jimmy comments on a recent totally unhinged Russophobic rant by Keith Olbermann, who appears to have completely lost touch with reality. Olbermann, notes Dore, now typifies the thinking and behaviour of many liberals.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—We also caught a strong whiff of this new trend in the near-total blackout on the Hunter Biden October surprise last year, which only went mainstream because it stood to benefit one of America’s two mainstream political factions. After the New York Post first broke the story we saw mainstream media figures publicly explaining to each other why it was fine not to cover it with reasoning that was all over the map, from it’s a waste of time to it’s just too darn complicated to it’s not our job to research these things to the Washington Post’s notorious “We must treat the Hunter Biden leaks as if they were a foreign intelligence operation — even if they probably aren’t.”

P. GREANVILLE—Although both Jimmy Dore and Glenn Greenwald find little to criticize in the judge’s ruling, taking it as legal certification of Rachel Maddow’s worthlessness as a “news provider”, all of them may be missing the point. The judge is acting—in my view— a bit disingenuously. Her opinion packs several errors that vitiate its meaning. Even for those like us on the left happy to find an “official” seal corroborating what we have always said, that Maddow is trash, the judgment obfuscates much more than it elucidates.
