Charlatans like Abramson on some level know that they’ve been peddling a fraud, so instead of defending their debunked arguments on the merits, they resort to bogus appeals to credentialism: a fallacy Seth should’ve learned about in law school
The only reason Abramson garnered a platform was because he pioneered a groundbreaking form of “experimental journalism” which entailed hawking bias-affirming theories to Bernie Sanders supporters about how he was #actually leading Hillary Clinton in the delegate count
Abramson in May 2016: "I’ve been a metamodernist creative writer for many years now, but had not seen an opportunity to bring this earnest, optimistic, and loving art practice into my professional writing activities until Bernie Sanders came along."

Sure thing, Seth
In his turgid, unreadable prose, Seth admits that his goal was to construct a "meta-narrative" that had nothing to do with fact-based journalism, and take his gullible readers along for the ride. Once Bernie lost, he started doing the same for Trump/Russia. Classic BS peddler
I'm heartbroken to announce that I have now been blocked by Seth. Tragic. Here's the exchange that set him off. Maybe I'll create a convoluted literary meta-narrative out of his petty Twitter antics.
