Why Is @Nero Being Ignored by Mainstream Media?

Milo Yiannopoulos (@nero on Twitter) has emerged in the past two years as one of the most controversial figures in New Media. When he appears on college campuses, students erupt in riotous protests. So where are the profile features by the New York Times, Esquire, Vanity Fair, GQ? Where is the TV news coverage of Milo’s campus speaking tour? Why isn’t Milo being interviewed by Stephen Colbert or Anderson Cooper?

The news industry seems intent on pretending Milo does not exist.

    I work with a high number of gays .Most are open about it but just work as part of the team .most are not flamers and find their mannerism as annoying as anyone.
    most are not even particularly progressive .Milo plus other conservative commentators like Douglas Murray wreck progressive narratives about how conservators hate gays. When gay conservators are warmly recieved it exposes the falseness of progressivism as a result ,they are ignored as corrosive to progressive ” thoughts”
    Any member of a favoured group that refuses the collective direction must be ostracized .

      Well said, ntt1.

      Add to that, anyone who learns of Milo may just decide to google him for themselves and in doing so will uncover some uncomfortable truths that upset the mainstream media’s many incorrect and deceptive narratives.

      Perhaps it’s arrogance or naivety, or both, on the part of the media, but they think that in this day and (information) age they hold more influence over people than the internet.

      What a bunch of fools.

      Viva la Milo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I think that’s one of Milo’s remarks, that most of the anger and hatred he receives is from gays for coming out as conservative.

    • disqusW6sf

      Good. Douglas Murray (as per M. Steyn) doesn’t provide advance notice of where/when he speaks.

  • Linda1000

    Yeah, he’s drop dead gorgeous. So where are all the pictures and it’s totally unfair that he’s gay. Who does Britain put on a cover of a gay magazine – Prince William?? wtf
    As said below, Milo makes all the progressives uncomfortable because he’s not spouting PC drivel.

      I agree, he is gorgeous. What a loss for us, girls. I watch Milo for some time now, and except for some graphic descriptions of what he likes in his private life (I am a bit old…fashioned), I love what he has to say. Can I say, the men has balls?

        No Venus de Milo then …

    MSM must erase all those “outliers” that defocus its carefully constructed solid stereotypical images that are tissues of lies. Black conservatives who refuse to live on leftist run happy plantations are equally problematic.

    Selling Emperor Barry as an “Afro American for change” to the ignorant electorate was their high water mark, no question.

  • Editor

    May not be the most insightful, exhaustive analysis but I’ll take a swing at it. Because they are
    hypocritical leftist whores with an agenda to push. Because they weren’t educated but indoctrinated in J school. Because they think they are intellectually and morally superior to us plebes and must enlighten us. Because Milo is an erudite, well-spoken and logical conservative and doesn’t fit the “conservative=redneck-homophobe” narrative. But I’m preaching to the choir, aren’t I.

    He messes with their heads and they don’t know what to do about him. It’s hysterical.

    Yesterday was great they would not let him speak on campus. Now that is original. So he holds a news conference at the scene of the attack and says it is not radical Islam that has a problem with gays it is all Islam. They should have let him talk at school.

    • Brett_McS

      They wouldn’t let him speak on campus because “they couldn’t provide security”, and yet all the mosques in the area were swarming with police to guard against “the backlash” that never happens.

    Progressives are totalitarians. If you don’t conform to their ideology/narrative, you don’t exist.

    • Alain

      Just another shared value with Islam.

      • moraywatson

        I think so too. Except that islam literally kills you, whereas socialism makes you wish you were dead and then provides you with the means to make it so.

        • Alain

          You think so? I recall socialists demanding the arrest and imprisonment of those who disagree with the climate change mantra, with abortion without any restrictions and a lot more. No, socialism is really communism dressed up in evening attire and the end result is the same.

    • Clausewitz

      Progressives only believe in free speech as long as you slavishly agree with them.

  • Justin St.Denis

    The challenge Milo poses to the MSM is clear. Milo Yiannopoulos has become a major conservative newsmaker through his excellent understanding of new media. When was the last time the MSM actually showed interest in genuine newsmakers of ANY description? Think about it…..
