Greenwald spends his days using his previous good journalism to tell people that the Hunter Biden laptop story is real and the Bill Barr is an ethical lawyer that would never serve at Trump’s bidding or cover things up. You’re extremely behind on your own personal rigor on journalistic integrity.
That appears to be the biggest disconnect here: Greenwald has been sprinkling lies and half-truths into his journalism for years, and has gotten worse with time. The fact is that he retreated to substack to milk the people that want to believe what he says uncritically and not because they are extra special megaminds who see through the code.
I also should be fair, Greenwald’s investigative reporting of factual events as a journalist is and probably will always be exceptional. Greenwald’s editorial journalism is hot garbage and has been for a very long time. There’s a huge disconnect between the quality of the two.
