Once upon a time, I explained one of the dead giveaways of an obvious grift (courtesy of the Urban Dictionary):
The highlighted portion emphasizes one of the most overused strategies of the grift -- the claim of a sudden emergency wherein one needs an assload of money to stay on the air (see: "Ezra Levant", as in my earlier piece). Whereupon along comes right-wing hack and ex-Rebeler Keean "Tomorrow Belongs To Me" Bexte ...
Yes, send money! Now! Right now, or Bexte might go off the air for *checks notes* violating the terms of his contract.
It does make one wonder, though, how someone who claims an audience of a million readers a month can't find a mere $13,000, given that he panhandles even more relentlessly than Sheila Gunn Reid. Sounds like Bexte is even worse with money management than Patrick Ross, and I do not make that suggestion lightly.
P.S. I am curious as to how having a sizable readership equates to chewing up one and a half terabytes of disk space a month. If people are simply reading your swill, why would that result in such a ginormous use of disk space, unless all that space is being used to track readers for the purpose of, who knows, selling their personal information to third parties? Because people simply reading stuff doesn't explain it, does it? And if Bexte is already heavily into data mining for the purpose of monetizing his readership, why the fuck is he begging for cash?
So many questions.
P.P.S. From that earlier piece, one is reminded of perpetual panhandler Ezra Levant shrieking desperately for at least $150K to sue PayPal:
Whatever became of that legal action, and all the dosh that was sucked up for it? Again, so many questions.
