Is Milo Bound for Infowars or Compound Media?

14

A good deal of secrecy surrounds Milo Yiannopoulis’ announcement to be made on Monday (Tuesday Australian time) concerning his next media venture. While many are speculating a solo media endeavour, he pretty much needs to be sponsored by an employer to stay in the country now more than ever.

Basing himself in England won’t cut it either. The mother country has no first amendment, and some pretty draconian ‘hate speech’ laws, so unless he plans to tone things down dramatically and become irrelevant, Old Blighty will have him imprisoned or economically ruined in no time.

95% of mainstream and alternative U.S. Media won’t touch him either. His offending statements would be tolerated and even defended if he were left-leaning and handing his resume in to Salon or Slate, but Fox, Daily Caller, The Blaze, or just about any other conservative news site would sooner hire Richard Spencer than entertain the thought of Milo and his problematic musings about Father Michael. Few established organisations are willing to risk the equivalent of picking up a turd by the clean end.

His two most likely options are Infowars, and Compound Media. Alex Jones is no stranger to controversy and doesn’t shy away from it. Infowars has become a fairly broad church, and it isn’t inconceivable that Alex would look at a Milo programme under the Infowars banner. Milo has close to 2 million followers. Infowars has just over 715,000. Those 2 million people are a serious incentive for anyone willing to overlook ‘Groomgate’. Alex has had some strange bedfellows over the years and seems unaffected by the odd bit of collateral damage or discredit they bring with them as long as they’re interesting. Infowars has nothing to lose and everything to gain from an unholy alliance with the former Brietbart tech editor.

The second, more likely option is Compound Media, run by Anthony Cumia. Milo is on friendly terms with Gavin McInnes, part of the Compound Media Stable. McInnes was a guest on The Joe Rogan Experience last week, and while he accurately identified Milo’s comments as creepy and irresponsible, he didn’t throw him under the bus and sounded a little like Jerry Seinfeld did when he defended Kramer following his racial tirade. His words about Milo had a very P.R. edge to them, almost as if he knew something he wasn’t telling us.

Compound Media is a lads’ network, and no stranger to courting offence. They aren’t beholden to the same morality as Alex Jones, who has a decent chunk of Christian listeners. Think Howard Stern for conservatives and libertarians. Their shows are tailor-made for a select audience who aren’t easily offended. They won’t be offended by Milo, unsavoury flippant remarks or not. Anthony Cumia was fired from a lucrative gig at Sirius for his own indiscretion, so he may be more sympathetic to a fellow public shaming casualty than most. Again, Compound has just under 47,000 followers. The audience that Milo could bring across could make Compound Media bigger than Stern and Sirius. Any fledgling media organisation would be tempted to work with the devil himself for that kind of overnight growth.

So Infowars and or Compound have a great deal to gain from a working relationship with Milo if they lure him back in from the wilderness. It could take them from being deplorable outsiders to serious threats to mainstream media overnight.

The biggest loser from the whole situation appears to be Brietbart. They made their name as a punk libertarian news network, and were left with the impossible choice of keeping Milo and being discredited on moral grounds, or showing him the door (make no mistake, he didn’t choose to leave). They’ve lost an enormous amount of face, let alone one of their biggest revenue generators. This situation is arguably their biggest blow since the loss of Andrew Brietbart. As for Milo’s new venture, all will be revealed soon.

It’s your XYZ.

Eh?nonymous was a thoroughly repellent unemployed social justice warrior until a one in a million glitch in his Facebook account affected the algorithms in his news feed, omitting posts from his much loved left leaning Huffington Post and I F---ing Love Science, and inexplicably replacing them with centrist and conservative newsfeed items that slowly dragged him kicking and screaming into the light beyond the safe space that Mr. Zuckerberg had so carefully constructed for him. It’s a long road to recovery, but every Mark Steyn share he sees in his newsfeed is like another day clean from social justice addiction.

    I’m hopeful that the InfoWars team will embrace Milo’s talent for triggering precious little snowflakes.

    Yeah you’re right, he’s on a visa, a 3yr O-1 visa so he needs to “If you are an O-1 nonimmigrant in the United States and you want to change employers, then your new employer must file a Form I-129 with the USCIS.” It might be someone like Cumia or McInnes for the reasons you stated or Alex Jones ( the Christians, hmmm, Alex has been going full F-word about GoogleAds ban last week, smoking stuff? on Joe Rogan’s show plus defending Milo and the gay dress designer (did you see his interview with Joy Villa – he likes curvy gals πŸ™‚ and now ‘all’ the kids have been recently coming up to his kids at school and saying “Your dad is cool”. Trigger alert : Cultural shift ( in Texas ??) happening. And he’s fighting Deep State !! I don’t think his old Christian base is his first concern now, he’s in a different ‘place’ now. Breitbart can have them now but the cool kids (14 – 64 y.o’s ) are on the move. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b57cf502e496abe9fe90baac1a39af4cc46e5e24cd863a50ba5fc0c25e7e51c9.jpg

    What I cannot understand in any of this is the concerted attack by all sides and virtually all in unison. This was a comment that he had made on Youtube a year ago and has been avaiable for all to see yet it all comes out within 24 hours? I wont get into the arguement about what he said being right or wrong as he didnt but why was this attack so quick and by all sides. For instance, the book cancellation, his publishers knew what he said was controversial when they gave him the advance on his book yet they then cancel. We should all be concerned at the co-ordinated attack just as much as his so called comment condoning paedophiles.

    • David Hiscox

      Spot on, TigerMan. Many on the AltRight and the old right left him out to dry. Something tells me that when he comes back, he won’t be doing any favours to those whose cause he did so much to progress.

      I think Milo’s appeal has waned since the election. His campus talks were becoming more of the same, people were accustomed to his “shock value” remarks. More importantly, I believe his insincerity was showing. Starting to identify is a “gay jew”, previously, espousing his religious beliefs, all of this has been manufactured to increase his appeal.
      Even the father Michael story sounded like every other story he tells, like bull$hit.

      Before this CPAC related stuff came out, I think Milo was already headed for irrelevance. Of course, there are still some true believers out there, but how many of those 2 million would still listen to his BS, who knows.
      He has embarrassed a LOT of new media types who I’m sure are thinking “there but for the grace of god…”.
      I’ve been watching his stuff since his SKy News (UK) gog, even before Gamergate gave him a large audience. That was the platform he used to crack the US market… at the end of the day, though, your bullcrap will come out. I’m afraid for Milo, even though he may not be dead yet, he’s massively diminished – never again to reach the heights he did so fleetingly.

      Given his current predicament, though – how much is Ben Shapiro laughing his arse off? πŸ˜€

      Just a huge coincidence.

      Either that, or the usual left-wing media collusion.

  • entropy

    Sargon did an interesting video on Milo that cites a 4chan /pol/ post alleging (if you can believe it) mainstream media collusion.

    FYI the MSM has a huge fucking media onslaught that is set to go live Monday to scorch earth Milo and destroy him via the pedophile label, the post begins.

    Its author claims to have received this intel via a mailing list, and that journos are ‘pissed off’ about the Maher interview, Milo’s book, and how people sided with him over the leftist rioters at Berkeley. He says they want to use Milo as a proxy to hurt Bannon and Breitbart.

    Breitbart cucked out hard on Milo and that’s unlikely to be forgotten. But he’ll survive. People said he was done when he was deplatformed by Twitter, but that just made him bigger than ever.

      Hey entropy, I saw that days ago but today I came across the best post (john-white facebook link below) with most info (heaps of links also in the 38 comments) and with more on 4chan type tips. Not only Milo but others like McInnes, Ann Coulter etc , they’ve got dirt files on to be released when ready to do most damage. This Milo fan, John White also links to topics : Reagan Battlion , Anti-Trump pacs, McMuffin , lefty media, Democrats, Pizza gate, now Pedo gate run by Deepstate and trafficker groups and Ashton Kutcher wants Fed money to save kids linked to John McCain’s Foundation board that hates Trump and all are DSStooges who hate Milo for liking Trump. I am spinning OUT ! Alex Jones is awesome, ( no aliens) but DSS’s are everywhere. I reckon that Malcolm Nance on Maher’s show is one and Milo paid the price for his ” yeah, and you’re the one who had his wallet out, sweetheart” retort. :https://www.facebook.com/notes/john-white/on-milo-pedogate-and-the-court-of-popular-opinion/1784476718244398

    Milo said nothing wrong.

  • Gregoryno6

    Milo may have been a convenient target for some MSM misdirection.
    “As the MSM has ignored these historical arrests, they have zeroed in on
    casting conservative icon Milo Yiannopoulos as a monster. They claim he
    supports pedophilia based on comments he made in a video years ago. The
    reality is Milo was a victim of child sex abuse, and although he did
    joke about his abuse in an interview, he in no way promotes pedophilia.
    The opposite is true, and he addressed this controversy head on in a
    press conference. Not only is it normal for sex abuse victims to make
    light of their abuse as a coping mechanism, Milo has personally taken
    down and exposed pedophiles in his columns over the years. However, the
    mainstream media and the left ignored this information and demonized
    Milo…”

    Latest from Milo “Over the next few weeks I’ll be announcing my new publisher, my new tour, my new media venture, news about the Privilege Grant and a number of other new projects I’ve been planning for 2017. Watch this space. And thank you for the support. You guys keep me sane!”
