How I dealt with a Washington Post reporter today

This morning I received a text from someone I have never met. It read: 

Hello Dr Gorka, I’m a reporter at the Washington Post and we are working on an article about how Donald Trump‘s messages on TruthSocial are communicated outside that particular platform by a key group of his like-minded supporters. 

You are one of the people whom our data team identified as a key individual (in addition to Mark Levin, Laura Loomer, and Gen Michael Flynn, among others) who helps DJT spread his messages to the wider world. 

We wanted to ask for your comment about that role if you see it as necessary, and how and why you do what you do with respect to his messages. 

We have identified some of Trump’s most popular sentiments as those around 2020 election fraud and 2024 election interference. 

Would you care to comment on the piece? 

Many thanks for considering it. -Sarah Ellison ([email protected]

This is not the first time I have been contacted on my private number by a member of the mainstream media. My responses are usually a variation of what I texted back to Ms. Ellison this morning:

You work for a propaganda arm of the Democrat Party and as such are a willing foot-soldier for an “elite” that hates Western Civilization and its apotheosis, the United States. 

Your pro-Hamas tweets evince as much. 

You are scum and a hack. 

Go to Hell. 

And you can quote me.

Now on first blush, this may seem a tad harsh. 

It is not. Just think about it. 

Whether it is WaPo, the NY Times, CNN, MSNBC, Newsweek, Time, or even NPR, think about what they have done as “journalists” in just the last few years. 

From propagating the “Russia, Russia, Russia!” collusion hoax on behalf of Hillary Clinton, Biden, and the Democrats, to incessantly labeling the proposition that COVID originated from the Chinese Army biolab in Wuhan was a “conspiracy theory,” or instead preaching to us that the COVID vaccines prevent the spread of the disease and you’re even catching it, they have zero integrity. 

After willingly suppressing the real Hunter Biden “Laptop from Hell” story before the 2020 election, or propagating the “fine people on both sides” lie about Charlottesville to hurt President Trump, the mainstream legacy media have amply demonstrated that they are one of the most corrupt enterprises in modern America. 

And Sarah Ellison is no exception. 

Her X account is ample proof of the arrogance of today’s media. Full of attacks on President Trump, the man leading with American voters in the presidential polls, when not posting on the side of the pro-Hamas, pro-terrorist Jew-haters running amok on American campuses, she is an exemplar of a media that detests the United States, supports her enemies and has utter contempt for those who love the US. 

My attitude to hacks like her has been the same since I worked in the Trump White House. And I never could comprehend the attitude of my fellow high-level political appointees who would work with the media industrial complex, giving them on-record, off-record, and “on background” access. 

I would often ask them: “Why are you helping people and institutions who actually hate you, the man you work for, and the 63 million Americans who chose him as our President? (And I am disappointed and dismayed to see so-called “Conservative” media personalities post selfies last weekend from the White House Correspondents Association Dinner. Seriously? Why on earth would any patriot attend an event that is the greatest concentration of America-haters in tuxedos?) 

It can’t be stated too often. America is split down the middle. Not along the political or tribal identity of Republicans versus Democrats. The dividing line is between those who love the greatest nation the World has ever seen, and those who hate it and are destroying it. If you are reading this, I believe you are in the former group.

Yes. You did right Dr. Gorka. I’ve hated the mainstream media since high school (Class of 79). But this is the lowest most despicable they have ever been. To call the movie Sound of Freedom a conspiracy theory, shows just how low they have sunk.

I suggest Sarah visit Gaza to see how many civilians were killed of the thousands reported by Hamas, and stay there.
And please explain why Hamas is not 100% jihadists.

The WaPo has been an enemy of the people for many decades, as well as a mouthpiece for the CIA (as revealed back in the 1960’s Church Committee hearings). And still are, so it seems.
So, good for you, Doc! Stay salty!

Good for you, Dr. Gorka. No sense trying to be polite or reasonable with these people, they’re too dumb and devious to appreciate it.

Well written piece. Yes, our liberal press (as in Washington Post and its many accomplices) epitomizes pure deception and ideological filth. They are interested only in misinforming the American public for the sake of, ultimately, total control by nefarious and forceful and means.

You go for it, Dr. Gorka. Someone needs to speak plainly to these anti-American, American flag-desecrating, property destroying, rabble-rousing scumbags who represent the mass media and the Democrats. Certainly, that idiot in the WH isn’t going to. Quite the opposite!

I love it, but i don’t know how it will ever be the same as it was. I think it will split between the blue and red states if we keep growing apart from each other and we need to be prepared for that if it happens…

Dr. Gorka didn’t mince words, which would’ve been a waste of time with that reporter.
(I suspect the accounts below that have a lot of down votes are CCP 912 trolls, or possibly bots: the similarities in style between them point to that, or to one person with multiple accounts.)
