Our old ‘Friend’ Michael Goldfarb Busted by NY Times

Check out the New York Times’ exposé on Michael Goldfarb, whom I have covered and exposed, starting in 2007.


Got that?

Michael Goldfarb Gleeful Provocateur at Intersection of Many Worlds
Jim Rutenberg / New York Times

At 11:42 a.m. on Feb. 14, a conservative online magazine called The Washington Free Beacon posted a dispatch about a speech Chuck Hagel gave in 2007 in which it said he called the State Department “an adjunct to the Israeli foreign minister’s office.” ….

So … here’s a few of my exposés:

A quick search of “Goldfarb” in my blog came up with 63 posts and 306 items. Hokay? Hokay.

And this one:

Oct 30, 2008 – NOTE: there is a lot of material on Goldfarb, et al, on this blog, with all the links and references you could want. The easiest way to access the …

Just sayin’.

Mr. Rutenberg misses some small nuances, such as Goldfarb’s over-the-top role in the exposure, humiliation and punishment of front line combat soldier Scott Beauchamp and The New Republic magazine, whose craven editor, Franklin Foer was just REhired by the new management.

Oh, and Goldfarb’s role as John McCain’s “new media” manager, working his evil mojo against Obama in 2008.

Small but meaningful nuances, eh?

To be fair: he mentions them, but shorn of their context: which is slavering attack dog madness. He is merely a “campaign aide” to McCain. Etc.

    Nothing the right wing press does anymore, surprises me. The strangest thing is that, since they do these things, they must personally not consider them wrong, immoral, inappropriate, or under-handed. They just follow a brazen path justified by an ethos, which places the ends above the means.

    Your ability to gleefully skewer the SOBs is quite refreshing.

    Good work, Hart.

    Love the Times’ title, “A Conservative Provocateur, Using a Blowtorch as His Pen.”

    And I ditto petew’s excellent observation, “Your ability to gleefully skewer the SOBs is quite refreshing.”

  • Thanks to you both.

    Now that you bring it up, the article is NOW in its THIRD retitle. Now, it’s “Michael Goldfarb Gleeful Provocateur at Intersection of Many Worlds.” (along with its URL).

    When I wrote the piece, it had the “Blowtorch headline” but a DIFFERENT URL with yet another (more blunt) title. I have no idea about what’s up with that.

    I should have saved the screencap, but initial headlines change all the time.
