Dave Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports, sharply ridiculed Samer Kalaf, a former Managing Editor for Deadspin, for now working with a company whose boss he criticized a while back.
Kalaf is currently working for The Outline, an online news magazine, which entrepreneur Bryan Goldberg and his company Bustle Digital Media bought on March 27, 2019.
Kalaf previously criticized Goldberg for purchasing the Gawker archives in an article at the imploding sports website Deadspin, where he used to work at.
In an article, he gave his take on the situation:
The archives of our former sister site Gawker now belong to this goon. Bryan Goldberg, the founder of Bleacher Report, a sports site for idiots, and Bustle, the women’s site that assumes women are stupid, won the rights to the defunct Gawker.com in a bankruptcy auction today, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. It’s not clear why Goldberg, who received a lot of media coverage after he chose to found a women’s interest site for the most cynical, self-centered reasons, would want to own Gawker and the ability to delete anything written on it. Perhaps it was this post which admired how precisely brutal that New Yorker profile was about him—“With his puffy face and untrimmed hair, he resembles a giant six-year-old,”—or this article, with the headline “Who Gave This Asshole $6.5 Million to Launch a Bro-Tastic Lady Site?” Maybe it was one of these blogs that irked Bryan so much that he decided wanted to spend (a reported) $1.35 million on the site that wrote it. If he doesn’t cremate Gawker’s corpse, but instead tries to revive it, it’s a sure thing that the result will be substantially dumber than the original thing.
Fast forward to November, 11, 2019. Kalaf is working for The Outline where he took the time to attack Dave Portnoy and Barstool Sports.
In the article, Kalaf encouraged Barstool employees to form a union, which caught Portnoy’s attention.
The Barstool Sports founders said that Kalaf “lecturing Barstool employees how they need to form a Union while simultaneously admitting the Gawker Union did nothing to save them from total and complete destruction” is not “even the most hypocritical part of the story.”
He noted that “Somehow Samer is now working for the very guy who bought Gawker and Samer wrote a hit piece about calling him a ‘goon’ and everything else under the sun when he bought it. A guy who seemingly stands for everything that Samer and his comrades despised about their former owners at Deadspin. I mean it’s literal insanity.”
Deadspin has been going through rough times as numerous writers — Kalaf included — left the sports company after a suggestion from management that its staff focus more on sports content rather than woke material.
Now, Kalaf is working for a company that is owned by a person — Bryan Goldberg — that he criticized in the not so distant past. Portnoy questioned Kalaf’s morals and ethics and asked if he did “not think people would put together this connection” with Goldberg.
He then declared that Kalaf has “no morals or ethics when it comes to collecting a paycheck. He will roll over like a dog and ignore his personal convictions and beliefs if you wave a couple bucks in front of his face.”
Portnoy then ended the article with an offer to Kalaf:
Therefore I will give him the same offer I gave Barry Petchesky. I will pay Samer 100K a year to be my butler. Full benefits included. I mean if he’s willing to work for a guy who stands for everything he claims he hates why not me? I’m sure I pay better.
Under Portnoy’s watch, Barstool Sports has positioned itself as a sports outlet that rejects political correctness and is willing to provide balanced sports coverage while also exposing sports journalism laced with woke takes.
University of Pennsylvania Workers Overwhelmingly Support the Democrat Party
From Top to Bottom Universities are in the Tank for Democrats
Employees at the University of Pennsylvania are overwhelmingly in the tank for the Democrat Party.
Ophelia Jacobson of Campus Reform reported that University of Pennsylvania employees contributed to Democrat candidates, campaigns, and organizations between 2019 and 2020. Campus Reform was able to gather the data by turning to the Federal Election Commission.
Per the Campus Reform analysis, a whopping 97.6 percent of campaign contributions in 2019 and 2020 made by Penn instructors, staff, and administrators were sent to “Democratic organizations, candidates, and their campaigns.” Some of these groups and causes included ActBlue, Win the Era PAC, Biden for President, and MoveOn Political Action.
To get more specific, of the 715 donations that Penn faculty members made, just 11 were sent to Republican candidates, institutions or campaigns. This number represented 1.5 percent of campaign contributions pitched in by faculty members. The remaining 98.4 percent of donations were sent to Democrat causes.
Staff contributions showed similar trends. 97.6 percent of contributions were sent to Democrat campaigns, candidates, or organizations, whereas 2.4 percent were sent to Republicans.
Penn administrators donated 731 times during the time-frame of 2019 and 2020. Curiously, 21 of those 731 contributions (2.8 percent) were only made to Republican causes and the remainder (97.1 percent) were sent to Democrat causes.
This analysis reported that ActBlue was the principal organization that Penn workers donated to as far as Democrats institutions were concerned. In contrast, WinRed was the largest recipient of donations of all the Republican organizations.
Just another case of an American institution of higher learning being filled with leftist staff across the board. Let’s face it, universities are a magnet for the Left and work to perpetuate such a political paradigm.
Conservatives should take note. These institutions and the drones who work for them are the enemy. In light of this, the Right should aim to defund public universities and make sure to attend alternative educational institutions if possible. These institutions do not deserve a single penny from right wingers.
