Patterico's Pontifications


Politico Reporter Marc Caputo Beclowns Himself, Proudly Distributes the Proof

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 6:10 pm

How lacking in self-awareness must you be to release a video that shows you to be, beyond any doubt, a juvenile twit posing as a reporter?

Apparently, Politico’s Marc Caputo knows the answer.

The apparent purpose of releasing this video is to show that, wow, this Congressman sure did lose his mind! He curses! He yells! Wow!

But here’s the thing. If you can listen to this, I guarantee you will conclude that “reporter” Caputo is the true asshole.

Sure, Bongino goes over the top. Why does he allow this punk to push his buttons like that? It’s a fair question.

But it’s frankly amazing to me that Caputo released this himself, thinking it reflects well on him.

Answer the question. Answer the question. Answer the question. Wow, you sure are a loser. How many times have you lost, loser? Wow, you’re getting upset! Why are you cursing? Why don’t you answer the question? Answer the question! Answer the question!!!

By the end, I was rooting for Bongino to challenge him to a duel. I still am.

  1. I’ll take your word for it. I’m not wasting 17 minutes to listen to this propagandist. Sometimes a person needs a good swearing-at, and I’m sure that was the case here.

  2. Bongino’s not actually a Congressman, but he may be after the November election.
    He’s one of our most impressive young conservative voices.
    He barely lost for Congress in Maryland in ’14, and he lost for US Senate in Maryland to Ben Cardin.
    He’s a former Secret Service agent, and former NYPD officer.

    He has an MBA, and a Master’s in Psychology.
    Occasionally, he’s been a fill-in host for Mark Levin and for Sean Hannity.

  8. I doubt anybody here holds “journalists” in high regard.

    His father is Phil Caputo? He, Phil, is the real thing. And a Chicago boy. Fenwick, Loyola, Chicago Tribune.

  10. Not going to spend time listening but from the text Caputo sounds just like Hannity. Who I won’t listen to either.

  13. I notice the transcription petered out about halfway through. If Caputo couldn’t slog all the way through the transcription, why didn’t he just not include his initial stab?

  14. If only this Caputo punk would get so testy with Jihadist sympathizers.

  15. Greetings:

    I still enjoy the use of the expression my father used when one of my associates went beyond his pale. “Next time you see your parents,” he would begin, “tell them that I said that they still have some work to do.”

  16. Mr. Bongino has a target painted on his back and he painted it himself after he wrote two unflattering books about the future president Ms. Clinton as well as the former President Obama. It is no surprise that if the media can’t swiftboat him then they are trying to paint him as being one of the many unhinged right wingers out in the political season since 2009. So this isn’t really a surprise. Nor is the Gawker/TMZ like tactics a surprise as well. Journalism myth that most of us grew up with is dead and been slowing rotting since the Woodward/Bernstein expose on Nixon.

  18. Moderation? Really?

  19. A judge ordered the State Department to expedite its review of almost 15,000 previously undisclosed documents recovered by the FBI from Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail servers.

    U.S. District James Boasberg on Monday ordered the State Department to process those recovered records by Sept. 22 and report back to him that day. He didn’t set a schedule for public release. The department raised the possibility of a phased release starting Oct. 14, which left open how many would be disclosed before the Nov. 8 presidential election.

    Will State comply in time? Fortunately there are plenty of actors involved who may.

  26. According to the Internet both parties in a florida phone call must consent to recording the phone call. I didn’t hear the scmuck asking bongino for permission. I assume bongino was in florida since the primary is next week..
