Andrew Marantz of the New Yorker spent a couple years hanging around the new media and MAGA scene. He's written a profile on @Cernovich and a few articles about various events over the last three years.

And now his full length book is about to drop.

@Cernovich He was even handed before, but this doesn't bode well:

Marantz was "embedded" in "the world of the people he calls "the gate crashers"--the conspiracists, white supremacists, and nihilist trolls who have become experts at using social media to advance their corrosive agenda."
@Cernovich Nor this review:

"Marantz has written a chilling, deeply sourced, rivetingly told account of how a few fringe figures saw the potential of the internet as a vehicle for mass disinformation, and became prophets of the new fascism. Antisocial is political reporting at its finest.”
@Cernovich This essay here seems to be an excerpt from the beginning of the book. It sets the tone for social media as a weapon.

It'll be interesting to see if Marantz ties in any of the concepts we've talked about like Blue Church and online network warfare.

A lot of people I know, myself included, got calls from a fact checker. There’s going to be a lot of us in the book. It’ll be interesting to see everyone’s reaction.
