The gold mine that is Berenson v. Twitter keeps spitting nuggets:
It wasn’t just the White House that was after me last year… my fellow members of the Fourth Estate were in touch with Twitter too. (It appears that at some point, Twitter’s Trust & Safety Team turned into the Dealing With Angry Karens Unit, and then it became the Easier To Switch Than Fight Division.)
Without further ado, here’s CNN’s one and only Oliver Darcy, complaining to Twitter in August 2021 that it was “promoting” me. Twitter was doing lots of things to me in August 2021; promoting wasn’t one:
And here’s Ashley Gold, a “tech and policy reporter” at Axios, more or less begging Twitter to jam me.
Ashley and Oliver appear to be firm believers in the ever-popular doctrine of “free speech is for me, not for thee”.
More to come…
"Like, I don't even know which one to send you..."
Do all journalists write like middle school valley girls? Whatevs, gag me with a spoon, they're totally gross.
Alex, I love this stuff. I contributed to your lawsuit (although I expect the settlement more than covered your costs) but this kind of stuff is just gold. I hope you take on the administration and all the other bad actors and bring them all down. Censorship is at the top of the list of bad things the government (and others) can do because it affects all other endeavors.
They are not journalists, they are regime court eunuchs https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/how-to-groom-commissars
Not just unAmerican, these journalists are anti-American. Disgusting, but not surprising.
Ashley Gold and Oliver Darcy are not journalists.
All Knowing Ashley Gold has Covid rn, joining V’d & sick trend. Tyrants learn the hard way 🤷♀️
It really amuses and frightens me those that use the term 'misinformation', I mean who are these people, usually unscientific non-medical, to determine what is fact or not, usually disputing known qualified respectable doctors and scientists, it is truly astonishing this has been allowed to progress.
This has really gotten so out-of-hand......
most of the news and journalism isn't. it is propaganda, advocacy, political hackery. we must stop using outdated language like media, news, reporter, journalist etc. they harken back to times gone. from now on, the term is "shill."
How do people on the Left live with the knowledge that most of what they believe is *exactly* what the very powerful, very influential, gatekeepers of modern media want them to believe? Don't they feel manipulated? Used? Looked down upon?
These so-called journalists are like everyone else: TERRIFIED that they'll be wrong. But unlike the average private person, when "journalists" are wrong, they are PUBLICLY WRONG. They not only err, they PRINT, BROADCAST, and otherwise DISSEMINATE their errors. As if to say, "HEY LOOK AT THE WHOPPER THAT I SWALLOWED HOOK, LINE, & SINKER!"
Plus, journalists are lazy. It's just too easy to yack on the phone or send emails.
So I'm not surprised that the "journalists" rallied around the talking heads. Why on earth would they do some actual work? Like research? Like find alternative opinions?
Plus government bureaucrats are "famous." So "journalists" are very impressed--and "HEY! LOOK AT ME! I'M IMPORTANT! This clown with a fancy title TAKES MY PHONE CALLS and ANSWERS MY EMAILS."
They're lazy, phony, and narcissistic.
I know. I worked with them for 35 years.
Alex, keep digging. I'm sure you'll find more email exchanges like the ones you cited here.
The more that comes out, the more appalling it becomes. The corporate fourth estate is basically dead. Please keep on trucking Alex.
A key Wall Street Journal Covid panic writer - Brianna Abbott - is all of about 25 years old. She had no background in medicine or science, but her articles appeared constantly on masking, vaccines, lockdowns (advocating of course). She cited proof like "experts have said...." repeating endlessly. I emailed her and pressed for data, she responded but provided none.
There wasn't a hint of skepticism or curiosity in her articles.
The WSJ editorial pages were more data driven and skeptical of public health officials, but the news section was pathetic and contributed to the panic for 2 years.
Once upon a time, if you didn't agree with someone else's opinion, and you felt strongly enough that they were wrong, you would debate them. Put your knowledge cards on the table and issue the challenge. But because we raised an entire generation of mindless pussies all they can do is beg social media platforms to make the bad man go away. Be it covid or climate change or any other weak sauce policy being pushed, it's the same playbook.
All Knowing Ashley Gold 6 mins into team Berenson: “tweets are protected” 🤣
This is an extraordinary lesson, and the bottom line in it is that "journalists" are very very very angry that you're disagreeing with the government. Always remember that: The current crop of journalists believe that their job is to speak on behalf of power, and to reinforce official narratives. What a shit-eating way to live, but whatever. Never trust anything they say.
Alex you really are uncovering so much truth. You are a true warrior an amazing person who is fighting for truth. You are so effective the first to really make a difference.
One of the most disappointing aspects of all this has been the behavior of people who call themselves journalists. I was once president of the University of Michigan chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and graduated with a degree in journalism. There were well-established professional standards for reporting that have obviously been abandoned. Back then, even accepting a free cup of coffee from a potential source was frowned upon. Very sad times now.
We no longer have a free media. What we have now is an arm of the state doing it's bidding unless Trump or someone else they don't like is in office. I haven't watched Network news in 7 or more years. Why would I when I have Alex to read. We are in a sad state in this country and I have seen it all until now. I wonder when the Villagers will start to go after the monster(Govt). Until folks say enough we will continue down the Yellow Brick Road
The presstitutes have been captured for a long time. The real journalists are on places like this.
"Journalism is an action, not a profession."
Excuse me for blowing up your email? How often do journalists email Twitter? Are they behind most accounts being censored?
With a few exceptions, clearly Alex, journalists live in a proverbial self licking ice cream cone of self adulation and admiration, while managing to hate actual "free speech" and just sloshing around in their own cesspool of excrement of their own making. (can you tell I've lost faith in most journalism?)
So many ugly but necessary discoveries coming out of the Berenson v. Twitter litigation. I am grateful for the few people like Alex Berenson who have had the guts to fight back and stand up for all of our rights.
Covid has been an incredible period of time in our society. Democrats/Liberals are now anti-free speech and pro Big Pharma. When I was growing up I had a shirt that said "Censorship Is UnAmerican." My conservative parents were not crazy about it. Fast forward to now and Liberals would hate that shirt.
Given that we all know today that it was you telling the truth and everyone else in WH & MSM that was spreading mis-information, I would contend they were more afraid of the truth than they were of COVID-19.
In the US, and much of the western world, the Fourth Estate acts more like the Fifth Column
"Just wondering, could you please, shut up this heretic who is refuting what we believe."
They're not journalists. They're useful idiots without mirrors.
So many of the professional fields are toast these days. Journalism, medicine, legal... they have all gone the way of greed and political bias supplanting professional codes of integrity. Frankly, the professional class as devolved into a mess of justified immorality.
Meanwhile those irredeemable deplorable blue-collar workers still go to church on Sunday and care for their neighbor.
Little Marxist scumbags begging twitter to destroy their competition for capitalistic gains.
Show em' who's boss Alex!
I feel like this is the tip of the iceberg?!
What happened to this concept of free speech in America?:
"Those who created this country chose freedom. With all of its dangers. And do you know the riskiest part of that choice they made? They actually believed that we could be trusted to make up our own minds in the whirl of differing ideas. That we could be trusted to remain free, even when there were very, very seductive voices - taking advantage of our freedom of speech - who were trying to turn this country into the kind of place where the government could tell you what you can and cannot do."
- Nat Hentoff
I think these scumbags are all running for an amorphous cliff; we should define the slope.
They're falling; we should push.
So, what are the annual dues for The Committee to Suppress Real Journalism that these two support and did they get an autographed photo of Jack Dorsey to commemorate their fake respect for the 1st Amendment?
What it looks like is anti-competitive behavior. Two people in your field, competing with you for clicks and ad revenue and followers, asking a third party to deprive you of your right to free speech (which just so happens to be your platform for promoting your brand)? They got away with it because they accused you of offending Saint Corona; I wonder what would have happened if they had called you a racist, misogynist, climate change denier, etc.
To be frank, I've never heard of these fascists!!
Well Alex, between you, Robert Malone and Rand Paul it would seem the mis / dis / mal - information market is cornered. Bottle it and sell .. !! Seriously, what is hilarious is almost everything you all have said was labeled as wrong, turns out to be right. Yet there remains zero humility or reflection within the MSM, public health, government in general and especially big pharma. Why is that? Are these people really that stupid or maybe there is an alternate agenda at play here? Like reducing the global population to do a major economic, social and cultural reset? I'm not smart enough to know but whatever it is, I want no part of it. To survive, we must pray, plan, prepare and RESIST.
I posted this comment on your previous article, but it applies here as well. They might not like you or your reporting, but it is much bigger and more personal than that, imo.
The media's silence about your case, the settlement with Twitter, and your reinstatement may be personal. You are certainly provocative and, at times, obnoxious. You are likely seen as a turncoat. And DJT has caused the media to lose its collective mind.
IMO, however, the silence about the "vaccines" in the mainstream media and social media is personal for them. The majority of them took multiple injections of the "vaccines". They convinced their family members and children to get them. They shunned family and friends who refused to be jabbed. They were proud and obnoxiously self-righteous about their decisions.
And they were wrong.
It took nearly a year for the Zeitgeist to accept the jabs didn't stop infection or transmission of the virus (even though Rochelle admitted the jabs didn't stop infection or transmission to Blitzer on CNN in early August 2021). They knew the rationale for the mandates (stopping the spread) was falsified before the first mandate was enacted.
IMO, they will never be able to admit that they've been injected multiple times...that they've pushed their children to be injected multiple times...with a ticking time bomb that may go off at any time for who knows how long. Once vaccinated, always vaccinated.
They cannot acknowledge that they screwed up.
They're too scared.
Cognitive dissonance has become a way of life.
Have you seen the Society of Actuaries Research Institute Group Life COVID-19 Mortality Survey Report (AUGUST | 2022) that Edward Dowd put up last week?
The "experts" know what is coming. They failed to jab us all, so there is a control group of sorts. The CDC quietly removed the claim that the mRNA and spike protein don't last long in the body. They are holding back data on all cause mortality.
The people who were their propagandists are compromised by personal choice and fear.
I learned in third grade that what was great about America is that our Constitution upheld Free Speech- Democrats were firm believers of this,...what changed? Anyone with minimal intelligence understands that Science is all about questioning a hyposthesis, experimenting, trying to prove a truth. To shut down anyone opposing Herr Fauci- who was wrong on almost everything ( I assume to cover his ass about being the reason Covid even happened) is NOT Science, it is a dictatorship, which is what , unfortunately, our government (and our supposedly free online "press") did for two years.
“What is really at issue is the right to report contemporary events truthfully or as truthfully as is consistent with the ignorance, bias and self-deception from which every observer necessarily suffers”
We are all capable of being wrong even when honestly believing something is true. Journalism has abandoned the pretense of truth and embraced ideology as unquestionable. The sad thing is they have embraced a hatred so powerful it justifies and encourages lying to obtain the nirvana they so fervently seek.
These people would fit right in behind the Iron Curtain of old. Spying and telling on their neighbors. Sickening.
The emporer has no clothes … in real life. 😂
It would be so much fun if you sued them into personal bankruptcy.
18 USC section 241 makes it a crime to conspire to violate someone’s constitutional rights.
courage ...freedom....truth....God.....like, let's totally make them cool again.
Shut up peasant! Repeat after me, “Safe and effective.”
Wow! The media suppressing free-speech! Sad, but also unlawful as anti-competitive and a restraint on free-enterprise!
The DNC or current admin…(whoever that is) was likely paying the jurnos to complain to Twitter just as they were paying the media to promote the jabs.
The majority have been biased since the 70s. I’d have empathy for you, however, you were blind to their biases and agendas while at the NYT/after, for far too long. And now that it’s aimed at you, you’re awakened.
The left is the master of manipulation and misinformation. Perhaps they should all be banned.
Dershowitz is clearly the original version of a liberal. In other words, he’s a dinosaur. I do enjoy listening to him and I will
likely buy his book. I do wonder about his skeletons however.
The extreme environmentalists have always had depopulation on their minds. "There are too many people on the planet that are wrecking the environment!!"I first encountered it at a Dartmouth debate camp in 1995. The attitude of the young lady was we need to "delife" you but not me!!
Gold nuggets..selective writings… never get the truth or know the truth will we? 🎭🏅🌗🦨🐍🕷🧚🏼♂️👨🏻💻
