Dave Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports, didn’t mince words when he lambasted both The New York Times and The Washington Post. In a scathing critique, Portnoy accused these prominent news outlets of prioritizing activism over genuine journalism. He contended that their reporting lacked the essential qualities of truth and balanced coverage. This condemnation from Portnoy followed his exposure of a Washington Post reporter’s attempt to damage his reputation. In his own words, he stated, “The New York Times is garbage. The Washington Post is garbage. They are activists. They’re not journalists. They have no interest in the truth… They have no interest in telling both sides of the story.” Portnoy’s comments reflect his belief that these media giants have strayed from their journalistic responsibilities.
Portnoy is right
