Mike Cernovich lays down a reasonable rule for the media:
You received this because you sent in a media inquiry. I generally don’t respond to media for a number of reasons. One is that I get a lot of them. Two is that traditional media doesn’t move the needle for me or the movement as well as social media does. Three is that most of you people won’t even describe me accurately.
If you do not agree to refer to me as an author and filmmaker, then I am not going to talk to you.
I’m an author and documentary filmmaker. Among other people, I interviewed Alan Dershowitz in his home for the feature-length documentary, Silenced. Scott Adams, Dave Rubin, Milo, and many others are in Silenced.
My first book, Gorilla Mindset, has over 735 reviews after 18 months. Maybe you don’t like the subject matter because you do not want to improve your own life, whatever. My second book, on Trump’s rise, already has over 200 reviews and has sold more copies than 99% of books released in 2016.
I am neither “alt-right” nor a men’s rights activist.
Mike Cernovich, author and filmmaker….If you lack the basic journalistic integrity to refer to me as who I am, then there’s nothing to talk about.
This is a good strategy for dealing with the media, as far too few reporters have the basic journalistic integrity to bother getting their facts straight.
And it’s important to force them to do so, because they are the sort of people who won’t hesitate to claim that Christianity, the Alt-Right, and White Nationalism are all one and the same thing.
Author and prolific Tweeter Joyce Carol Oates openly pondered the state of Christianity in America in a post to her Twitter account Thursday afternoon — and believes Christianity is now indistinguishable from white nationalism in many parts of America.
Thus demonstrating that a dedication to social justice and mental retardation are even less distinguishable.
