We have fun with far-left writer, Kurt Eichenwald. Noting his bitter hatefulness. Or his unhinged responses to Tucker Carlson. His investigation of Hentai tentacle porn and how he deployed his own wife and kids in his public excuse for it. Or how he did a key Trumprussia smear which later lost a lawsuit for his employer, Newsweek magazine.
But I just now happened to come across Debbie Nathan’s article from 2007:
A New York Times reporter not only gave money to a child pornographer, but did business with him and even signed on to an illegal porn website as a member and administrator, documents unsealed yesterday in a federal criminal proceeding in Nashville reveal. He claims in one court document, he only “posed” as a pedophile.
The reporter is Kurt Eichenwald, who quit the Times in October, 2006…
And Eichenwald did write a big story on child porn that was much-praised at first – but, according to court documents, by then he had given thousands of dollars to multiple 18-and-under pornographers to encourage their efforts. And other articles say he posed as Don Henley, and more. Allegedly, Eichenwald’s research involved so many manipulative actions and such intensive “posing” that I had to stop and go “Whoa”. And not in a good way.
Eichenwald would seem to have a history, of privately (not as part of law enforcement) “researching” strange porn in tremendous depth while saying publicly that he does it for the good of others. (Nathan’s article again shows him bringing his wife into his excuses.) Whether you believe Eichenwald is on the level and thus a hero, or something very dark indeed, will be your call.
Coming back to the present, now it seems that Eichenwald and Newsweek are apart (it’s unclear who fired whom). And he has just started a Twitter fight with Wikileaks’ Julian Assange, and lost.
After Eichenwald attacked him in a long series of petty tweets, Assange linked Eichenwald to the CIA (and Assange would know) and exposed Eichenwald’s Amazon pen name, “Andrew McDonald”, by which Eichenwald allegedly fabricates independent, 5-star reviews to his own books. (Hey gang, remember when Sockpuppets were a thing?)
Mr. Eichenwald – get help! Going by your Wikipedia bio (much of which reads as if you wrote it to praise yourself), you could be brain-damaged – you know, that concussion in college that led to your having grand mal seizures. So maybe there’s a medical explanation for your unhinged behavior? Maybe you can still get yourself under control? Best of luck.
