I promised this piece and I was a little dragging my feet and also in need of checking certain facts. You see, the media is having a go at Andrew Tate, a person I actually do not care about, but the media, that corrupt institution is one I hate with intensity. It is therefor essential to give idiots like Alice Evans (as I personally see it) a little taste of their own medicine.
You see How much coverage did the BBC give Tyler Shulz? The person that started the clarity of criminal activities by Elizabeth Holmes, founder of that joke named Theranos. You and your peers were all about praising Holmes when it suited your needs. So how much checking did you do into Elisabeth Holmes? If you cannot put your vagina where it needs to be, you can at least put your vagina where it should be and that is in a chair in a Romanian court making sure that everything is reported honestly and correctly. You see, to answer your question on how people ‘How schools are tackling his influence’ (at https://www.bbc.com/news/education-64234568). Yet how much influence did Elisabeth Holmes have, she is a convicted criminal now. Did you check? How about the man behind FTX? Sam Bankman-Fried is being investigated. So how about him? How about he just ‘found’ the 5 billions missing, billions till lost. Yet no one is asking how someone misplaces 8 billion, did you? So why would we need to tackle influence? He is innocent until proven guilty, that is the real setting, not the one the media is painting. And lets be clear, at present the bulk of the media has less credibility than a crack pusher in a schoolyard. You and your peers made that so. So when we see “the problem is, she says, Andrew Tate is also pathetic” we accept that this is your view on the matter, not the one that teacher Charlotte Carson has on the issue. You see, Andrew Tate went from nothing to $700,000,000 that is a reality, you all embraced cash is king, so you enabled him. Members of press, members of society, members of government. Then there is the reference of “Taliban beliefs”. He might be Muslim, that does not make him Taliban. And there are a few Middle Eastern papers that see him not as the prominent person they would like him to be. But here we are in the west where cash is king making him pretty much an emperor. As I see it more of an emperor than Jack Dorsey who you and your peers refused to report on. It was so much easier to get digital dollars out of Elon Musk. How is that going for you Alice?
And now we see “Tate, a former kickboxer, has millions of online followers – despite being banned from sites including TikTok, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube for misogynistic comments.” I cannot comment on things I did not see, but here is the crunch. He is banned and criminals like Elisabeth Holmes? Are they banned? And when the case of Sam Bankman-Fried is decided, will he be banned if found guilty? That is beside the captains of industry who liquidate their companies and not pay staff, you will happily give those people a pass too. Have you not figured out that you are part of the problem and not the solution? Now, if Andrew Tate is found guilty will you dig into that, or just let it fly? You do remember that the hell you and your peers allowed Tyler Shulz had to face is on you and your peers, do you see that?
You failed to do your job to the degree you needed to in the cases of Elisabeth Holmes and Jack Dorsey, so how much longer will you hand out filtered information? When will you go back to reporting the news? I am curious about that part because most reporters have eagerly stopped reporting the news in several places as I personally see it. In the end if he is found guilty and you want to do a piece on how schools are tackling his influence, I have no complaints. At that point he is a convicted person, but you better make sure that you report on the actions of Elisabeth Holmes and Jack Dorsey as well. The media is for the most no longer something that should be recognised with positive feelings. You, your peers and their need for digital dollars made that so and that has been an issue for years. That is how I see it. So fix it and start reporting the news, unfiltered by your shareholders, your stake holders and your advertisers.
