Shocking. It turns out that Milo Yiannopoulos is ghost-written. Everywhere. He’s got interns writing his articles, his talks…I wonder if he’s so lazy that he’s got them writing his tweets.
Yiannopoulos confirmed in an interview with BuzzFeed News that he hasabout 44interns —a mix of paid and unpaid— writing and conducting research for him. But he denied that other people write stories for him start to finish.
Two people write Breitbart stuff for me,he told BuzzFeed News, butghostwriting is too great a word.[Nope. Ghostwriting is exactly the word. –pzm] He said that the majority of his interns are researchers and that some write speeches for him.I have two books coming out this year,he said.It’s completely standard for someone with a career like mine to have researchers and assistants and ghostwriters.
A career like his…what career? He is, supposedly, a writer. What he does for a career is write stuff. He doesn’t have any other job. His wikipedia page identifies him as a journalist. He’s employed at Breitbart as their tech journalist — he doesn’t know much about “tech”, but I guess he’s as qualified to be labeled that as “journalist”.
You know, if he were calling himself an astronaut, and it turned out that the only people to step into a rocket were his paid staff and volunteers, It would be fair to call him out on that phoniness. If he said he was a movie star, but had a team of proxies who were doing all his acting for him, I’d wonder why anyone needed him at all. He’s got about as much of a career as a Kardashian, apparently, famous for being famous rather than talented, and mainly his job is posting selfies and preening.
And 44 interns? That’s ludicrous. What is there left for him to do after 44 people have written his text, edited his words, done all the labor of writing?
Worst of all, he’s outsourcing his writing to…goons from 4chan. That explains a lot, actually.
