Liberal Journalism or, “Phucking your way to the top” by Ali Watkins

Bet Slick Willy was like “Damn!” when he read this article:






Did 'hotshot' NY Times reporter Ali Watkins simply benefit from top-secret pillow talk?
By Brian Flood | Fox News

New York Times reporter Ali Watkins’ swift rise to prominence in Washington, D.C. journalism circles happened quickly by industry standards, as she is still only 26 years old. But now the media industry is wondering if some of her success is due to top-secret pillow talk — and ethical lapses that may have come with it.

Last week, a shock indictment revealed that prior to joining the Times, Watkins had a three-year romantic relationship with former Senate Intelligence Committee aide James A. Wolfe, 58, who was accused by federal prosecutors of lying about leaks of sensitive information to journalists, including Watkins herself. And now the New York Times has announced it is investigating Watkins’ conduct, just as the young reporter is leaving the office for a “pre-planned vacation.”

Watkins began her career in 2013 at McClatchy Washington Bureau, where she was a finalist for the coveted Pulitzer Prize less than three years after she started as an intern while she was still earning her journalism degree from Temple University, according to her LinkedIn page. Along with two colleagues, Watkins and her team were finalists for the 2015 national reporting Pulitzer for “timely coverage of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on CIA torture.” She then landed at The Huffington Post and bolted to BuzzFeed and eventually Politico, all by 2017. She stayed at each news organization for a brief time, covering national security.

McClatchy brass told the Washington Post they were not aware of Watkins’ relationship with Wolfe, and vice president Tim Grieve told the Post he wasn’t sure if she used her lover as a source. The Post pointed out that several stories she wrote for McClatchy were related to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

When Wolfe and Watkins were dating in 2017, the young journalist sent several tweets that appeared to place blame on attorneys for President Trump over various media disclosures. She once wrote, “Trumpster lawyers will leak info about upcoming appearances, blame the committee, then use as a pretext not to cooperate.”

Watkins is believed to have started dating the committee aide while she was still an intern at McClatchy, and for years afterward would report on the committee. During her time at BuzzFeed, she published a report mentioned in the indictment which revealed Russian spies attempted to recruit former Trump adviser Carter Page — who eventually be subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee for his alleged role in Russia’s 2016 election meddling (he asserted his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent).

“I’ve watched your career take off even before you ever had a career in journalism,” Wolfe said in a text message to Watkins, according to the indictment. “I always tried to give you as much information that I could and to do the right thing with it so you could get that scoop before anyone else.”

She learned about the power of the pussy and used that power to get a leg up. Pussy has brought about the downfall of many a man.
