Peculiar omission by @farhip. Capital & Main publisher Danny Feingold said they don't have evidence that Sirota was advising Sanders campaign while working for them. https://twitter.com/farhip/status/1108491711775424512

Question is: between ending work for Guardian in Jan & ending work for Capital & Main in February, did Sirota/C&M have conflict of interest needed to disclose? Review of subject matter suggests no. He wasn't attacking single opponent of Sanders and wasn't officially hired yet.
Question is: between ending journalism for Guardian and Capital & Main in February, did Sirota have conflict of interest they needed to disclose? Review of subject matter suggests no. He wasn't attacking single opponent of Bernie Sanders and wasn't officially hired yet.
In fact, we know based on statements referenced in Farhi's piece that Sirota informed Capital & Main in second week of February he was interested in working for Sanders. "Worst" tweets included to "support" Atlantic report were sent before 2nd week of February.
WaPo's @farhip amplified dubious @TheAtlantic report a day later. Scroll down 7 paragraphs and one finds this critical acknowledgment: "It remains unclear how long Sirota advised the Sanders camp before his hiring." Yet, Farhi plowed ahead w/ column. https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/a-bernie-sanders-supporter-and-journalist-had-a-secret-he-kept-from-his-readers/2019/03/20/063aabee-4b26-11e9-b79a-961983b7e0cd_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.1875e50775aa

Longtime Democratic Party campaign staffers, consultants, speechwriters, and strategists, as well as pundits like Dovere, are clearly afraid of losing influence in a world where Bernie Sanders is a presidential contender.
Who are these “people with direct knowledge”? Did these “people with direct knowledge” see David Sirota meeting with someone who is now working for the Sanders campaign back in 2018? And what is wrong with that?
Update @TheAtlantic added essentially paraphrases a tweet @IsaacDovere sent after Guardian/Guardian editor demanded correction. They're baselessly insisting Guardian isn't telling full truth about David Sirota and Sanders campaign to justify not retracting. It's slimy.

But what are your views on consultants posing as journalists? Is that grift okay?
Let's not suddenly allow establishment media to impose standard on Sirota that no other person moving from journalism to politics typically faces. Such career move would be lauded by Democratic Party operatives if Sirota wasn't such a muckraker.
This report treats David Sirota like he's David Brock. As passionate as Sirota was in past tweets, it was always in service to investigative journalism he produced and issues which he cared for deeply. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2019/03/sanders-promised-civility-hired-twitter-attack-dog/585259/

Here's thread which should load all 10 things Chelsea Manning revealed - one for each full day she's been in jail for resisting grand jury: https://twitter.com/kgosztola/status/1108114507602239494
There were numerous revelations in what Chelsea Manning disclosed. Even more reason to support her as she resists US govt's grand jury investigation into WikiLeaks. Going forward, each day she remains in jail, I'll add something she revealed to this thread. #ChelseaResists
US diplomats were instructed to spy & collect biometric information for US intelligence on UN officials - under secretaries, heads of specialized agencies, & heads of peace operations/political field missions, including force commanders. #ChelseaResists https://wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/09STATE80163_a.html
In 2007, in Baghdad, Reuters journalists, Saeed Chmagh & Namir Noor-Eldeen, were gunned down in Apache helicopter attack. Saleh Matasher Tomal pulled up his van. As he helped Chmagh, he and his two children were fired upon. #ChelseaResists https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rXPrfnU3G0
US assassination squad, known as Task Force 373, attacked Koran school where they believed al Qaida commander was hiding out. Seven children were killed. "The knowledge that TF-373 conducted HIMARS strike must be kept protected." #ChelseaResists https://wikileaks.org/afg/event/2007/06/AFG20070617n852.html
Al Jazeera journalist Sami al-Hajj was sent to Guantanamo Bay because US government wanted to interrogate him about al Jazeera news network. #ChelseaResists https://wikileaks.org/gitmo/prisoner/345.html
Frago 242 was an order adopted by US military forces to avoid investigations into Iraqi military or security officers who tortured people. #ChelseaResists https://wikileaks.org/irq/report/2005/06/IRQ20050619n2086.html
US and Chinese govts joined together to obstruct major climate change agreement negotiated by European govts. "Growing perception of common understanding between US and China is making some other interlocutors less comfortable." #ChelseaResists https://wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/09CANBERRA603_a.html
US government knew very well that Tunisian President Ben Ali and the ruling family were terribly corrupt. "Often referred to as a quasi-mafia, an oblique mention of 'the Family' is enough to indicate which family you mean." #ChelseaResists https://wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/08TUNIS679_a.html
FBI trained torturers in Egypt's state security service, who used electric shocks, sleep deprivation, & stripped detainees naked. "[Detainees] walk around like zombies, have no sense of time, and have difficulty communicating with us." #ChelseaResists https://wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/09CAIRO2064_a.html
Bush and Obama administrations pressured Spanish govt to not investigate Bush admin officials who authorized torture. "Prosecutions would not be understood or accepted in US and would have enormous impact on bilateral relationship" #ChelseaResists https://wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/09MADRID392_a.html
Chelsea Manning has now been in jail in Alexandria, Virginia, for 10 entire days because she refused to answer questions for the grand jury investigation into WikiLeaks. I'll now share 10 things she exposed through her whistleblowing. #ChelseaResists
US government had secret deal with Yemen's government to launch drone strikes or cruise missile attacks covertly. Yemen President Ali Abdullah Saleh told General David Petraeus, "We'll continue saying bombs are ours, not yours." #ChelseaResists https://wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/10SANAA4_a.html
It's alright. I'll point you toward the properly created thread in support of Chelsea Manning and you can share these again and keep up with the next revelations I share for each day she is in jail.
Due to error that occurred when threading, I'll be re-sharing #ChelseaResists tweets I did, which contained 10 things she exposed for each full day she has been in jail for resisting grand jury investigation into WikiLeaks. So if you RTed or shared, you may find tweets missing.
Trump's foreign policy in Latin America is connected to domestic politics. US intervention in Venezuela is imperial front in a right-wing capitalist agenda against supporters of strong progressive policies for 99 percent.
Then Bolsonaro went on to suggest border with Venezuela was closed by Maduro so Venezuelans who "support democracy" wouldn't leave for Brazil. That's obviously false. Venezuela never has had such a policy.
Bolsonaro asked what would happen if a 2020 Democratic candidate who embraced socialist ideas won the election. Bolsonaro says it's internal matter but Trump will win re-election.
