This is an ugly story about a "journalist" not getting what she wants.
A reporter for Salon.com was assigned to assault Media
So Jennifer Liberto contacted my publisher, Marc Perkel and
got my home phone number.
Then she called my house, twice, begging for an interview.
I refused to talk to her for a few reasons:
1. I was warned that she was out to screw Joe Conason.
I was told that she had orders from Salon to prove
Joe Conason was Media Whores Online.
How did this get started?
Bow Tie Boy Carlson of Crossfire,
they say, cornered Joe Conason at a party and said,
"I know you are
MWO," to which Conason said, "That's
Sidebar: I wondered why Carville and
Begala couldn't hardly make it thru a Crossfire without quoting
Perhaps they were trying to
goad Carlson into making that inaccurate accusation on the air
so it would further damage
Tucker's lack of credibility.
So, Salon set out to prove this was true.
Salon set out to screw their own contributing columnist.
Perhaps David Horowitz has more pull at Salon.com
than we know.
2. If I'm going to talk to a whore from the corprate press, it'll be
That way, I have a true and accurate record of what
I said and what the "journalist" said.
3. I don't like whores, and this Liberto smelled funny from the start,
even on the phone.
On the phone messages she left, she kept saying,
love your site! Salon asked me to do a story on MWO, but
like your site so much better. Will you talk to me?"
I know a handjob when I'm getting one, so I refused
to pick up the phone.
So Liberto started sending me e-mails.
I'm on assignment for Salon.com's Washington
bureau, with orders to find out what makes MWO website tick.
She opens with a stupid and clumsy lie.
She wasn't trying to "find out what makes
MWO tick," she was out to screw them.
For some reason, Liberto was appointed hit bitch for CNN's Aaron Brown.
She was following orders, like a good little soldier to "get" MWO.
She figured the best way to do that was to lie like a dirty crack whore.
I'm trying to talk with as many real people
as possible. And given that you're both a journalist as well as a
'publicist' for the Bartcop site, I figured
you would be a fabulous person to talk to on both fronts.
Yeah, that's me - fabulous as a publicist.
What a suck job...
Specifically, the story I'm doing looks at the
media's growing fascination with MWO website,
and how and why it can it be published so relentlessly,
and yet anonymously.
She wasn't out to look at the media's "fascination," with MWO.
She was out to get revenge for Aaron Brown, who has some beef with
Also, I'm looking at the question of whether there
is more of a significant need for such a watchdog website these days.
If you read this "journalist's" hatchet piece,
you'll discover she answered her own damn question.
After repeatedly lying to me about what she was
up to, and how "great" and "super" I was,
Liberto turned into some kind of Linda Tripp
clone and set out to screw her "friends."
What a slut!
After a week or two of reading the MWO and Bartcop
websites, as well as combing
hundreds of older archived caches of both, I
feel like I'm beginning to better understand their genesis.
ha ha Suck me. You spent a whole week or two reading MWO and BartCop?
I guess that'd make you an expert, Honey.
When I had my live rock club, I met fifty women that would do
for $25 worth of cocaine,
and I can tell you right now I'd rather loan them money than talk to
this scumbaggette "journalist."
I'm a freelancer in New York, and although I had
actually never heard of either the MWO or Bartcop
websites before the story was assigned, I'm impressed.
I'll bet she drops her panties for every subject
she's assigned to interview.
Koresh knows what I could've gotten from Liberto
if I lived with driving distance of New York.
I wonder - did Jennifer Liberto Monica
her way into Salon.com?
(Am also personally delighted with your recent
reportings on the Julie Hiatt Steele event in D.C.)
ha ha Julie warned me not to talk to this
bloodsucking slut (my words).
(Julie knows about getting stabbed in
the back by an ethics-free reporter.
Michael Isikoff cost her her home with
his $600,000 check in his pocket.
I wonder what Salon paid Liberto, and was
it in silver?
Maybe if Jennifer Liberto keeps doing what
she's doing, she'll be another Isikoff, someday.)
You can either call or email me anytime.
Yeah, sit by the phone and wait, Honey.
Liberto Freelance writer
Her phones have been disconnected.
That was e-mail one.
She kept calling my house, and I kept refusing to speak with her.
She talked to other people, then wrote me again.
One, do you have any idea who is the mysterious
Uh, Miss Professional Writer, a question mark
(one of these - ?)
belongs at the end of a sentence if it's meant
to be a question.
Christian said she didn't think you even knew
her last name, and just tried to respect her anonymity.
But I just want to make sure that's true,
before I report it. And as far as you know, she's still running
the mediawhoresonline site?
"Steno Jeno" wouldn't know the truth if it was running down her leg.
And two, on her website she had posted (in Feb.'
01) that you had approached her
about handling the media topic for you, since
you were flooded with contributions.
Who approached who, in the genesis of the mediawhoresonline
I don't even know what that means.
I've never been "flooded with contributions," unless Steno Jeno means
Also, I'm looking at the question of whether there
is more of a significant need for
such a watchdog website these days.
THAT made me want to reply:

The first page is all about why Salon.com readers need to hate MWO.

I have question:
If you're a whore writer for a whore online magazine, to whom are YOU
Besides, how do we know Jennifer Liberto is your real name?
For all the Monica you gave Aaron Brown, you could be him in a dress.
As best can be determined, Media Whores Online
originated in Tulsa, Okla., in 1996...
Even after I set her straight, she went with her original lie.
Why did she bother to try to talk to me if she was going to print
whatever lies she had in her mind when the assault was first planned?
For this article, the person, or persons, in charge
of MWO insisted on only an interview by e-mail,
Smart move, when dealing with an unprincipled whore such as Jennifer
But, Liberto did get at least one sentence correct.
...a miffed journalist would have a hard time
proving that being labeled a "media whore" constitutes defamation.
You're goddamn right about that.
Don't ever talk
to salon.com They are a back-stabbing, whore publication who will lie to make a
story fit that wouldn't.
The whore-to-reporter ratio over there must be 50-to-1.
I'm so old, I remember when salon.com had credibility.
