ecmoRandomNumbers: Let's look at the wording:

ADDITIONAL SOURCES 4/ Is this related? Don't know. But it a) doesn't fit established patterns [CITATION, PLEASE] and b) involves key players in the theory of the case, and so must be looked at seriously by Mueller and Congress [editorialization]. Maybe Mueller asked Jared about it 2 weeks ago. [conjecture].

It's not news until you have at least one or two other journalists on it, making sure your declaration is credible, and an editorial staff that would never run the story because it's irresponsible to do so without concrete evidence.

I want to see trump fry and squeal like a pig, but not at the cost of a free press with high journalistic standards. Twitter is what the 4th Estate becomes when people only follow the people who reinforce their fear, hate, and delusions. Bad reporting foments cultism. Deep state! Fake News! etc. What good is a free press if nobody is held to a standard of accountability?

Twitter accounts are not news. Period. If you could go back in time to about 1968 and show Walter Cronkite the power of Twitter and Facebook, he would probably blow his f*cking brains out.


Rather than subverting the space-time continuum, you could just get on the phone and ask Woodward and Bernstein what they think.

berylman: Can't Seth Abramson compile all his farking tweets into one user-friendly blog or some shiat even if he does Tweet it out?

drxym: KingRamze: As conspiracy theorists go, Seth has decent credentials and has been ahead of the game on the Trump investigation.
 I don't trust everything Seth says to the letter but his reasoning is sound, his credentials and background make him credible and he has so far been pretty on point. Also worth listening to what Ben Wittes, John Schindler, Kyle Griffin, Rick Wilson say and who they retweet.

There are a lot of prominent twitter accounts covering the investigation where the veracity / sanity are certainly questionable.


When enough come together on 90% on the same stuff, it tends to make a decent narrative. Reading some of their detractors also advances the same narrative. Go figure. 

The story is there, you just have to find all the pieces.

Doesn't evil ever retire?  Can't we set up a home for over the hill evil?  A Fletcher Memorial Home for Incurable Tyrants and Wasters of Life (We'll fancy up the font on the signage.  It'll look better and the desk people will just say "Fletcher's" when they answer the phone)?

Dead for Tax Reasons: twitter is fine if you have a little to say

if you try to post a 1000 word analysis, maybe it's time to get a real place to post it then tweet a link

he could reveal the secrets of the universe, i'm not reading it in this format


Radio is fine, if you have little to say. If you want to explain something to me, put it in a proper format like the newspaper.

"I don't need no fancy book learnin'!"

Refusing information because of the format doesn't make you any less willfully ignorant than those who spout the above, you know.

ok, i read as much as i could stand.  i see why he uses twitter.  no one else would give him space on their sites for that much random speculation


I disagree that it's random speculation given that he's an investigating attorney, I find it helpful and informative for the events and people I'd missed or forgotten, others may not. Thanks for going and giving it a shot though, that's the important thing to me.

Some knucklehead "gifted" me T.F. and paying 5 bucks a month to have the ability to "vote" on half-assed attempts at humor and access to T.F.D.?

Why would I want to chat with morons on some pay-walled forum?
I can get the same level of stupidity trolling youtube comments for free.

And nipples in email?
That's a selling point?
You can get a whole lot more doing a GIS.
