Will Leftwing Media Address ‘Toxic Masculinity’ After Avenatti’s Arrest? Here’s What They Said

Published

During Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, leftwing news websites adorned their pages with headlines about “toxic masculinity” and “toxic bro culture,” which they ascribed to Kavanaugh to explain completely unprovable allegations of sexual misconduct.

Wednesday, Democrat darling and huckster attorney Michael Avenatti was arrested for alleged domestic violence. Curious, I reached out to a few of those same news outlets to see if they thought “toxic masculinity” was to blame, or if that was a trait only held by Republicans.

Here’s what they said.

During the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, The Guardian published a piece from Jonathan Freedland called “Kavanaugh has revealed the insidious force in global politics; toxic masculinity.”

The Guardian did not respond to a comment request when asked if they had plans to run a similar piece in light of Avenatti’s arrest.

During the same time period, Daily Beast published a piece titled “The Right Thinks Kavanaugh’s Toxic Masculinity is Just ‘Being a Man'” by Jay Michaelson.

They, too, did not respond when asked if they had considered addressing Avenatti’s “toxic masculinity.”

Vox, on the other hand, at least responded to our question.

BLP spoke with Adam Howard, a professor at Colby College who penned a piece for the leftwing publication titled “I’ve spent decades studying elite schools. Here’s how their culture enables toxic masculinity.”

Avenatti attended the University of Pennsylvania, an Ivy League school, and then George Washington University Law School. Both are elite institutions.

Howard referred me to his editor – whom he did not name – to address whether Vox will run any additional pieces on Avenatti, but launched into an excuse-making tirade on behalf of the disgraced barrister.

“It’s a little different though for a number of reasons,” Howard said. “Avenatti’s alleged domestic abuse didn’t occur while he was a student at one of these elite institutions. He also, of course, isn’t going through senate hearings to be confirmed for a lifetime appointment to the highest court. Just a couple obvious differences.”

According to the professor’s argument, “toxic masculinity” begins and ends with elite schooling. One apparently cannot be toxically masculine after graduation.

But here is one other “obvious difference” that I can think of, which is much more likely the reason the left will not jump down Avenatti’s throat.

Avenatti is a Democrat, and Justice Kavanaugh is a Republican. Thus, Avenatti will receive the benefit of the doubt (and due process, by the way, which was not afforded to Kavanaugh), where Kavanaugh did not.

CNN’s Jeff Zucker Is Heard Spiking Hunter Biden Laptop Story in Latest Project Veritas #CNNTapes

The Hunter Biden story was off limits at CNN.

CNN President Jeff Zucker can be heard instructing the network’s personnel not to cover the bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story in leaked conference calls in October, ensuring that the network’s audience wouldn’t hear of the evidence documenting the corrupt foreign business dealings of Joe Biden’s son in Ukraine.

Wednesday’s release is the latest of Project Veritas’s #CNNTapes. James O’Keefe of the whistleblower organization confronted Zucker on CNN’s daily conference call on Tuesday, revealing to the corporate media operative that the medium had been compromised.

Zucker explains that the Hunter Biden laptop story belonged exclusively to the “rabbit hole” of Fox News, Breitbart, and the New York Post in leaked conference call audio from October 23rd.

CNN Vice President and political director David Chalian more openly places a lid on the bombshell story in the leaked conference call, glossing over the reports of Biden family corruption and stating it was “obvious” that CNN wouldn’t cover it.

Obviously we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden, which seems to be giving its marching orders to Fox News and the right wing echo chamber and what to talk about today…

Another CNN Vice President, David Vigilante, questions why any corporate media reporters are retweeting the story at all, suggesting it should be completely and totally ignored.

What in the world are Maggie Haberman and Jake Sherman doing retweeting that story?

The Hunter Biden laptop story may be the most censored news report in American history, with Big Tech platforms such as Twitter and Facebook going to unprecedented lengths in order to purge mention of it from their platforms.
