Shapiro Launches New Scam

Ben Shapiro, the reason-averse editor of Breitbart’s zombie website and one of wingnuttia’s boy wonders, is launching a new website, TruthRevolt.com, that he swears will finally, after all this time, reveal the evil liberal media and “change the nature of media.”

On Sunday, Breitbart News Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro discussed the launch of a new website that will seek to “change the nature of media” by exposing the donors and advertisers that enable the mainstream media to distort the truth and push their agendas with no accountability, especially when it comes to their bottom lines.

Shapiro will lead TruthRevolt.org, which will launch on Monday to expose the mainstream media and “unmask leftists in the media for who they are, destroy their credibility with the American public, and devastate their funding bases.”

Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and host Stephen K. Bannon, Shapiro said those who “bankroll” and enable the mainstream media to lie and “push their agenda” must “be made aware that the American public is not going to stand for this bullshit.”

He simply said there has to be a “price to pay for that.”

Yes, of course. And I’m sure this will be way more effective than all the other right-wing websites and organizations doing the same thing, like Accuracy in Media, Newsbusters and even Breitbart’s own Big Journalism site. I’m sure it won’t be just preaching the same sermon to the same choir that funds and falls for all these right wing groups. And of course it won’t be just another way to build a mailing list so he can pimp them for money and sell scams to them like every other right wing site does.

    Why do you hate capitalism, Ed?

    Sounds like it will be truly revolting, and thus accurately named.

    I assume he’ll simply ignore Rupert Murdoch, right?

    “Expose” the advertisers”? Why would this be necessary? Don’t they, like, buy *ads*?

  • scienceavenger

    Distorting the truth…you mean like calling it “The Obama Shutdown”?

    And just how in the world do people like Shapiro rationalize that the most popular news outlet in the country (Fox) is NOT mainstream? It’s no wonder their thought processes are so fucked up, every phrase they use is a euphemism that means the opposite of plain English.

    Shapiro actually used the word “bullshit”? I’m shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you!

    I’d bet dollars to donuts that his main page will not say who his financial backers are.

    Do you think he’ll expose Fox viewers to the fact that the Affordable Care Act and Obamacare are the same thing?

  • bushrat

    This is great news for advertisers on main stream media networks…more free advertising. Way to go Shapiro, doing his part to help capitalism and consumerism along.

    Eric: I’d bet dollars to donuts that his main page will not say who his financial backers are.

    Right. And what’s more (or rather less), it doesn’t validate.

    The headlines are interesting. Apparently Obama has a “chilling effect” on journalism. Yet CBS (says the site) described the launch of Obamacare as “Nothing short of disastrous.”

    It’s not just about the mailing list, Ed.

    It’s also about white folks co-opting the racially pejorative term “cracker” and bringing the (I assume) socialist/progressive Ritz brand to its knees with the Twitter hashtag “SharptonsCrackers” campaign: http://www.truthrevolt.org/petition/tell-advertisers-stop-backing-al-sharpton
