Excuse you, Buzzfeed News, for playing faux journalism for pageviews

I just posted about that or this controversy on my Instagram, but it has to be placed here for posterity because Ben Smith’s co. hired a man that I am a fan of, Darren Sands, in whose Harlem apartment I crashed in 2007 before heading out to Dar es Salaam for the first time. Also, there’s my ex-colleague at the Orange County Register (different bureaus) Salvador Hernandez in Los Angeles. He toiled away at the Orange County Register a lot longer than I have been reading LA Observed (Thank You, Cynthia Rawitch). Here’s what I posted on Instagram. Don’t get it twisted and end up another ni88a on the hitlist.

“And @buzzfeed is about to become the next Gawker unless they realize what 5 o’clock follies around the clock means. You just do not publish sexually deviant cornucopial information about president-elect who is a billionaire and does what billionaires do (DJT is not as deviant as, say, Broadcom founder, and @vanityfair forced federal gov to ground his jet and seize passport after he backed expansion of @guerillaunion?) I personally don’t care if #DonaldJTrump is Turkish Republican or a chicken sandwich. Facts are facts when they are on the ground.”

Not sure if Vanity Fair’s Bethany McLean was done in by the FBI or the other way around. Y’all will have to ask James Comey for me. I bet he doesn’t know I knew hedge fund volatility process well enough to get out of harm’s way in Kaufman County, Texas.

President elect Donald J. Trump adviser Jared Kushner gets love on Россия 24

Watch this like whichever CIA director was watching the White House on the morning of 9/11/01 and my ex-DEA, hedge fund manager acquaintance in Washington D.C. up at the towers as his friends came crashing down to their death. Capitalism doesn’t have to be bloody under the Donald J. Trump administration. Osama bin Laden was diabolical but that’s all because he, literally, had women problems.

Is George Will a reporter or a genius?

Listen, folks. I’m a fan of George Will the columnist more so than Allah’s will – or Nas of Ill Will, but we’ll just let that rest – in ways than President-elect Trump, Rep. Cardenas and Rep. Schiff could not imagine if they all walked into the National Press Building and ate tacos. Syndicated columnist George Will writes:

Soon, foreign policy will be conducted by a man who, although in 2010 he said WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange deserves the death penalty, now seems to trust Assange on the subject of Russian hacking more than he trusts the consensus of the nation’s $53 billion civilian intelligence institutions. Time passes and, we are told, brings progress.


I want to add a link that popped up in my Google Alerts for good measure, but I can’t seem to find it. Too encompassing. And I’m looking for more money than VXI Global Solutions Inc. in downtown L.A. was willing to pay for my Russian linguistics and sound mind.
