Dan Bongino is a conservative success story, and that makes him a target. CNN contributor Evan Osnos notes in his piece in The New Yorker that “Bongino’s Facebook page alone “has attracted more engagement than those of the Times, the Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal combined.” Ashli Babbitt retweeted Bongino more than 50 times.

So who does Osnos talk to to learn about Bongino? A university professor who calls him “an important node in the amplification of propaganda,” and Angelo Carusone, president and CEO of Media Matters, which has promoted advertiser boycotts of Bongino’s show.

Glenn Greenwald says CNN has so whittled down its credibility that they have to take on people with larger audiences than they have.

“There used to be lines,” Carusone wails.

If conservatives are so censored on social media, they should make their own Twitter, right? So Bongino backed Parler and YouTube competitor Rumble. And now they’re complaining about it.

Doesn’t CNN have some human resource problems to work out?

But Bongino, if left unchecked, is going to be the platform from which right-wingers launch the next insurrection!

Carusone frets that PayPal would let the “January 6 people” recruit money to rent a bus.

All Media Matters is trying to do is redraw those lines that the media didn’t cross.
