Barstool's Dave Portnoy got word that two Washington Post reporters were working on a story and had contacted sponsors of his upcoming event, and you'll soon see that it was a clear attempt to shame them into no longer being sponsors:
So I caught wind that the Washington Post was proactively reaching out to the sponors of my Pizzafest on Saturday and trying to shame them for being associated with me. I believe the legal term for that is “treacherous interference” Anyway what I’ve learned over the years with these types of hit pieces is that can’t give an inch. So rather than just sit back and let them dictate the pace of the game I decided I'd speed them up and make them play by my rules.
Portnoy then contacted one of the so-called journalists. What took place next was several minutes worth of why trust in the media is at an all-time low and still falling.
Watch the whole thing and you'll see several reasons why "journalism" is beyond repair:

"This is kind of standard journalistic stuff."
Exactly! More "reporters" should be confronted like that.
This reporter is so bad at her job it's sad— Ben McDonald (@Bmac0507) September 20, 2023
"I never said you were misogynistic"
"I have the email"
"Well I said it one time cause I wanted them to email me back" https://t.co/tMPzKl5s05
Amazing, and there's so much standard "journalism" in that clip -- which is the entire problem.
This is the reporter you're dealing with:— Steve Guest (@SteveGuest) September 20, 2023

What a shocker.

THIS IS THE WAY🔥. The media is the enemy of the people and deserve to be clowned and exposed! https://t.co/jX6Q6xJJDV— Chaya Raichik (@ChayaRaichik10) September 20, 2023

Yet another example of activist "journalism" poorly disguised as objective reporting.
Activist journalism at the Washington Post on full display. Portnoy should tweet the email w the email address and salutations taken out.— Brian Doherty (@BDOH) September 20, 2023
It's not easy to find "journalism" these days that isn't just activism.
