Info Meme of the Week: Why Does Kurt Eichenwald Have A Job?

Editor’s note: this post is part of a quick, two post series on staggeringly dishonest, wholly unethical and frankly pretty fucking creepy mainstream media “journalist” Kurt Eichenwald that may at some point turn into a long form essay detailing the truly voluminous record of dishonesty, failure and outright skeevy behavior that has propelled Kurt’s rise to fame. The simple truth is that Kurt is so utterly unwholesome and disconnected from reality that it would take multiple Wall of Shame entries and multiple Info Meme of the Week images to properly document just how fucking shitty he is; time being what it is, we’ll have to settle for a couple of brief snapshots detailing Kurt’s mendacity and save the full evisceration for a rainy day in the hopefully not-to-distant future.

For those of you unfamiliar with the format; the Info Meme of the Week is a semi-regular feature where we a look at one issue or scandal largely being misreported in the media in the form of a single, easy-to-share meme that’s backed up by a few verifiable sources underneath the photo. No rants, speeches or explanations required – just the facts, in one quick snapshot you can show your Fox News-loving grandmother to help her understand why it is absolutely vital for American society to shoot mainstream journalists directly into the sun as soon as humanly possible.

Finally, readers inquiring about my recent absence and/or why this post is not devoted to fighting nationalism are encouraged to examine the editor’s note in this article’s sister piece “New Deluxe Wall of Shame Update: Kurt Eichenwald.” I have struggled for a long time with both a desire to expose Eichenwald for the fraud he is and an overwhelming need to avoid his work because he’s almost certainly a pretty sick fucking puppy no matter how you read the evidence presented about his career. I can say with some confidence that this struggle has directly contributed to my lack of writing output over the past month and today, I’ve finally decided to bury that demon (and Eichenwald with it.)

Please be reminded that if you’re having trouble reading this Info Meme, you can simply right click on the meme and select “view this image” to pop out a larger version.

As always, please feel free to post this meme anywhere you like and remember that you can provide sources for skeptical observers and people who’d defend a lying, exploitative piece of shit like Eichenwald by linking them to this post and insisting they actually do some fucking reading. In the war on ignorance, knowledge is power and taking down a shit-demon like Kurt takes more effort than normal because of his outsized influence in the tabloid isle of the supermarket.

Kurt, if you’re out there reading this buddy (and let’s be honest, you Google your own name obsessively and we both know it chief) I want you to know that I have no idea if you’re a pedophile, a pimp or simply a man with literally no fucking integrity and zero journalistic ethics – but it’s past time that someone pointed out you’re a fucking cancer on the scrotum of a free and independent press. Some day, and I suspect it will be very soon; all your ugly is going to catch up with you all at once Mr Eichenwald and then, no amount of lying about anonymous intelligence sources will save you from your own, morally bankrupt behavior.

I await that day eagerly Kurt.
