‘Typhoid Mary of Disinformation’: Glenn Greenwald obliterates Nicolle Wallace in mini-documentary tease

No one defines all that was wrong with the George W. Bush presidency from a conservative perspective better than Nicolle Wallace, who is a walking, breathing representation of the “RINO” tag often leveled at political class establishment Republicans — the same cabal that bitterly opposes the populist appeal of Donald Trump.

While no longer a Republican, the MSNBC host served as Bush’s communications director and worked on John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, where she and Lincoln Project grifter Steve Schmidt, who was McCain’s campaign manager, infamously fed the late senator’s running mate, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, to the liberal media wolves.

Suffice it to say, Wallace has not gotten her full due for such a treacherous past… at least, not until now.

Independent journalist Glenn Greenwald pulled no punches in introducing a mini-documentary that destroys Wallace, as he calls her the “Typhoid Mary of Disinformation.”

“From her days as Bush/Cheney propagandist, to her stint on The View, to her role as beloved-by-Democrats MSNBC host, Wallace has perfected the art of sociopathic lying,” blares the subheading of a piece he penned on Substack.

“The most blatant and shameless liars from the first term of the Bush/Cheney administration have, revealingly, enjoyed great success in media and journalism,” Greenwald wrote. “That is because serial deceit is not a liability for a thriving career in corporate journalism but rather a vital asset — provided that the lies are in service of ruling class policies. Tawdry propagandists who helped drive post-9/11 America into a bottomless pit of lies and self-destruction have become the most highly-paid and beloved stars of liberal media.”

“But few Bush-era propagandists have thrived more, made more money, and developed a more devoted and swooning liberal fan base than the official Communications Director of the Bush/Cheney White House and 2004 Bush/Cheney-reelection campaign, Nicolle Wallace,” the journalist explained. “Having catapulted from her work as Jeb Bush’s Press Secretary to the White House to senior adviser to John McCain’s presidential campaign (working for her close friend, Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt, who recently performed one of the most public and sustained nervous breakdowns in the history of the internet), Wallace was always beloved by the DC press corps.”

It’s hard to argue a single point made here by Greenwald, who shared the Pulitzer Prize in 2014 for his reporting on leaks by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. He took to Twitter in a series of tweets to detail his findings:

“Nobody is more adept at packaging CIA lies for liberals to eagerly consume,” Greenwald said of Wallace in a follow-up tweet.

He concluded the thread thusly: “Those who most flamboyantly warn of the dangers of disinformation and seek to censor the internet in its name are always the most aggressive purveyors of disinformation. That’s @NicolleDWallace.”

Here’s a quick example of responses to the story from Twitter:
