Photo by Scott Roth/Invision/AP Earlier this month, Business Insider released a #MeToo style hit piece on Dave Portnoy, attempting to accuse him of sexual assault and defame him as a predator of young women. It was a blatant attempt at cancelation, but Portnoy is a hard man to cancel, especially since he has evidence of his innocence.

But while most people going through a cancelation attempt would hunker down and pray the attention goes away soon, Portnoy told the Daily Wire that he’s taking a different approach. He’s going on the offensive against Business Insider and plans to make them pay for what he’s saying is a false accusation of rape.
Appearing on “Candace,” Portnoy slammed Business Insider for publishing a piece that was clearly not well researched and one-sided. So far, Portnoy has published text conversations and a two-part video describing the real story, a story that runs contrary to the claims made by author Julia Black in the Insider hit piece.
One such story involves a girl who said Portnoy continued to have rough sex with her after she told him no and claimed she was “screaming in pain,” something that Portnoy vehemently denies ever happened and gave his side of the story in the two-part video. The Barstool president noted that he has nothing to hide and that no matter how much they try to dig there isn’t really anything to find.
Regardless, he told the Daily Wire he’s not just letting Business Insider drop this and walk away. According to Portnoy, he’s out for revenge: “This is a baseball game. We’re in the top of the second. Like, there’s no chance I’m letting this go. They tried to basically discredit me with one of the most heinous crimes you can commit,” Portnoy said, asserting that the accusations made in the Business Insider article are tantamount to rape. “And if they think I’m just gonna walk away, like, ‘Okay, I cannot prove myself,’ they’re terribly mistaken. There is no chance I’m going to let […]
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
