Reminds me of how Trump has often threatened to sue media outlets/journalists, and then rarely, if ever, followed through.
Media fragmentation is an important aspect of this that I certainly should have mentioned. Thanks for pointing out.
Or, if not calling them liars, strongly implying it.
It’s not just Breitbart and not just this story, unfortunately
That Bolling’s son took his own life because of the scandal, yes. Bolling’s response: STFU. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/eric-bolling-bill-oreilly-new-york-times-report_us_59ee5693e4b0d888ea3d2059

Hard to say exactly for NYT, but homepage editors typically decide which stories go in which spots on the homepage to maximize impact, traffic, etc. They might deal with headlines and the little blurbs you see beneath them.

Yeah I think this gets to the heart of it: The media is still trying to convince people who do not want to be convinced, and will try to avoid being convinced at all costs.
Unfortunately for Breitbart I don’t think even the Mercer family has that kind of money.
Ya I think the notion she could ride the anti-Trump wave that carried her out of Fox all the way into the mainest of mainstream was vastly overestimated
You sure about the “cornered rat” analogy?
You have a point
My god it does look like ClipArt
Sure he’s never heard that one before.
It’s about *sparking a conversation* or, if you will, a *clash of ideas*
Seems like it’s what he wanted. He’s alluded a lot on his podcast to how he wants to spend more time producing, particularly given the current state of politics. IMO, it seems like having him as an outward-facing voice is probably a better move for Vox in the long term.
