With a quarter million twitter followers Mike Cernovich is leading an independent journalism movement which has legacy media scared as hell. He rose to prominence during the 2016 election acting as a voice of support and alternative news for Donald Trump supporters.
While still a relatively fringe player in journalism Cernovich was elevated into the public’s awareness when he featured in a 60 minutes investigation on “fake news”. Ironically the segment was designed to discredit Cernovich but ultimately had the opposite effect. The pivotal moment came during an interview with Scott Pelley, who highlighted Cernovich’s claim Hillary Clinton had a neurological disorder which caused her seizure during the 9/11 memorial ceremony in NYC. Pelley, a seasoned and respected journalist rebutted his claim saying “she had pneumonia”, to which Cernovich asked, “how do you know that?” Pelley replied “her campaign said so”. That moment gave Cernovich and independent media the upper hand because no one but a biased reporterwould consider Clinton’s campaign to be a credible source in that situation.
Following 60 minutes Cernovich dropped one of the biggest stories of the year… revealing that Susan Rice, Obama’s second hand ordered the unmasking of Donald Trump’s campaign communications. What is most troubling for legacy media is the way in which he sourced this bombshell. Cernovich claims to have sources at every media establishment and was informed that Bloomberg reporter Eli Lake, and Maggie Haberman at the The New York Times were sitting on the story out of fear it would legitimize the ObamaGate scandal.
"Maggie Haberman had it. She will not run any articles that are critical of the Obama administration."
"Eli Lake had it. He didn't want to run it and Bloomberg didn't want to run it because it vindicates Trump's claim that he had been spied upon. And Eli Lake is a 'never Trumper.' Bloomberg was a 'never Trump' publication."
"I'm showing you the politics of 'real journalism'. 'Real journalism' is that Bloomberg had it and the New York Times had it but they wouldn't run it becausethey don't want to run any stories that would make Obama look bad or that will vindicate Trump. They only want to run stories that make Trump look bad so that's why they sat on it."
"So where did I get the story? I didn't get it from the intelligence community. Everybody's trying to figure out where I got it from. I got it from somebody who works in one of those media companies. I have spies in every media organization. I got people in news rooms. I got it from a source within the news room who said 'Cernovich, they're sitting on this story, they're not going to run it, so you can run it'."
"If you're at Bloomberg, I have people in there. If you're at the New York Times, I have people in there. LA Times, Washington Post, you name it, I have my people in there. I got IT people in every major news room in this country. The IT people see every email so that's how I knew it."
Cernovich Media is the real deal now… since the Susan Rice story broke he has claimed the Obama Administration spied on Pro-Israeli supporters during the Iran negotiations, reported on the Syria airstrikes hours before they occured and teased a sex scandal that will hit the globalist inner circle.
