Glenn Greenwald called out neoconservatives on Tucker Carlson’s show on Friday.
Greenwald specifically called out journalists and columnists clamoring for war with Iran. He also expressed disbelief with how certain journalists, who get foreign policy matters wrong, end up getting cushy gigs in the journalist space.
He singled out Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic, in particular, for being wrong about the Iraq War. The journalist claimed that “Jeffrey Goldberg’s articles won a national magazine award for creating a grotesque conspiracy that resulted in the death of hundreds of thousands of people.”
Greenwald concluded, “Not only should he not be in journalism, he should be out of decent society.”
When Tucker asked Greenwald about the bipartisan fetish for war, the progressive journalist responded that war “is exciting, so it drives media ratings, it makes people buy newspapers.”
Greenwald even cited the example of Ben Shapiro’s hawkish tweets, where he said, “Disproportionate response to attacks on US assets are a good way of showing our enemies that we will mash them if they continue to escalate.”
In his view, Shapiro’s comments are “something that people say when they go through life feeling inadequate, and without any kind of purpose or strength, so it gives people strength.”
The past week has had political commentators up in arms after President Trump decided to not strike Iran after it allegedly shot down an America drone in international waters. Ben Shapiro was one of the people notably calling for decisive military action.
Thankfully, for the America First crowd, Trump did not tow the neocon line.
Although not in the America First camp, Glenn Greenwald’s anti-war journalism has provided a strong defense against the calls for intervention from both neoliberals and neoconservatives in the Washington sphere.
Him and Tucker Carlson will likely be some of the loudest voices for non-interventionism in the next year.

Bernie Sanders Supporter Out on Bail After Trying to Torch Republican Office in California
A California man who attempted to burn down the Republican Party of Humboldt headquarters is free to roam the streets after spending only a day in jail before posting bail.
According to KRCR News, Eureka Police Department officers responded to a call early in the morning of a man smashing the windows at the Republican headquarters. A witnessed provided a description of the suspect and claimed he was seen riding a bicycle in the direction of the bay.
Officers quickly arrived at the scene and found the man on the Boardwalk. They claimed that the suspect tried to flee the scene on bike but was detained after a short pursuit. According to the EPD, the suspect was found holding a “Trump” political flag. His bicycle had a “Bernie” political sticker tacked on, according to the police report.
The man was identified as 43-year-old Michael Valls of Eureka and was found possessing items connecting him to the vandalism on 5th Street, police stated.
In the investigation, police claimed they found three large front plate glass windows that were apparently shattered.
Police added that a “Trump” political flag was taken from inside one of the shattered windows, which matched the flag Valls had in his possession.
A liquid chemical was also found inside the building. Humboldt Bay Fire arrived at the scene and discovered that the liquid was flammable, the EPD recollected.
Valls was arrested and sent to Humboldt County Correctional Facility for attempted arson, burglary, felony vandalism, resisting arrest and providing a false name.
Valls was held in jail on $25,000 bail Saturday. He would later be bailed out on Sunday.
This was not an isolated incident.
On numerous occasions, vandals have targeted the Humboldt GOP headquarters in Eureka.
