>Calls it going viral
Milo has been scraping /pol/ for content for his clickbait articles for about 6 months now. He does it on 8gag too moreso than 4chan, but that place is so slow that he is forced to come here to get real traffic numbers.
Ben Shapiro, one of Breitbart's editors (Milo's boss), does the same thing.
That doesn't even take into account the army of Breitbart interns who do nothing but spam clickbait stories and youtube videos on /pol/ all day for extra views and thus, more adsense shekels.
He basically gets all his attention by telling MRA what they want to hear. All his arguments and points are just rhetorical nonsense when you break them down. He's becoming the MRA version of Anita Sarkeesian.
That isn't even his real name. He's had multiple aliases over his life because he owes a lot of people money from his previous failed startups.
He keeps namedropping this place (and 8gag) in his clickbait articles as a means for his attentionwhoring on twitter.
>and people just aren't tapping into it.
There are lots of people trying to tap into it. I don't know how often you browse /pol/ but Milo is just one of many pseudo-journalist alt-right twitter/youtube whores shilling on /pol/. There is a Paul Joseph Watson thread on there right now. He shows up soemtiems. Gavin McInnis, ben Shapro, Sargon of Akkad, and Sam Hyde also post regularly an shill for themselves. Those are just the ones I know about, I'm sure there are others.
lol how new are you? 4chan is mainstream as fuck now bro, your secret little club got big out years ago. I'd tell you to go check out infinitechan now but even that's blown up since GG; still, you might find it more to your liking.
> 4chan is mainstream as fuck now bro, your secret little club got big out years ago.
Yeah, I know. It got September'd in 2007.
> I'd tell you to go check out infinitechan now but even that's blown up since GG; still, you might find it more to your liking.
No, fuck that chan, it's terrible. I go on other chans every once in a while, but this one has the most traffic, and is the one I grew up with.
Still, though, the culture of this chan has gotten diluted from outside influences. The oldfags that haven't left yet are usually shit and were the cancer that killed it in the first place. Shit fucking sucks.
Hey Milo, I know you are here.
Don't do clickbait, jesus christ. Saying something is going viral is low, you might as well say "hey, here's a nice bandwagon to jump on".
Back your claims more often
Stop blatantly pandering to /pol/. I'm a /pol/ack and it starts feeling like you are trying too hard to gain adepts
"Epic" fell out of fashion a long time ago, get on with the memes.
Also, fuck you. If you want to pander to 4chan, at least know 4chan, and don't post screencaps.
Bait, but I'll bite.
I don't care where he sticks his dick.
I'm jaded by what journalism has become and Milo seems some of the worst of it.
The way he exploits a bunch of gamergate kids for his yellow journalism blog posts is about as low as it gets.
All he has to do is sit on some social media (twitter, *chan, whatever) and either wait for some poorly-sourced story to grow among these kids, or manufacture one.
Then he's off to copy-paste another blog post and spam it for guaranteed clicks.
All the more disgusting that he's using some great /pol/ content.
This honestly seems hollow, you've got nothing on him except that you find him annoying.
He's exceptionally popular in mainstream UK TV, go type his name into youtube, you'll see the man is a genuine genius when it comes to debating as well as he debates about important points nobody else will stand up for the public on.
You know, like telling people it's okay to go out in public with your granddaughter, that you shouldn't be called a pedo because of that.
Telling people that men are upset because we're demonized growing up now, which is also absolutely true and being brushed under the carpet by most media.
He's a great journalist and public figure who is growing more popular for good reason.
Your hate for him seems like thinly veiled leftist shilling.
I have no problem with his position; I agree with what seem to be a lot of his opinions. That makes it worse. I don't want an army of hack journalist blog posters representing what should be a substantive position. That's counter-productive in the long run because you will never get anyone to read (or even click on) an article that didn't all ready agree with the message. See the problem, now?
The tit-for-tat "they write crap clickbait so it's okay if we do it too" attitude doesn't lend any credibility.
Guess who isn't reading Milo: SJW feminist legbeard transfatties. Guess who is: people who all ready agree with his opinions and are being exploited for ad impressions.
All sides now have armies of blog posters exploiting every position for ad impressions. How can you not see this?
If he wants to be a pundit, that's fine. Stop writing clickbait.
1. Milo isn't a journalist, he's a con artist and a twitter attentionwhore.
2. Breitbart isn't journalism, it's click bait.
3. Milo is not "popular", he is "infamous" and "notorious".
4. "Milo Yanniopollis" is just his latest alias/AKA of dozens
5. You act like he hasn't personally been spamming self-promotional marketing threads on /pol/ (among other places) for almost a year now.
tl;dr Milo is a horrible person who both panders to the userbase on some boards here while simultaneously peddling his shit-tier opinions for adsense.... and you should feel bad for defending him.
