I wrote about Matt Ofalea’s brilliant four-and-a-half minute video below in “The playbook on the laptop.” The video compiles clips — mostly of news anchors and reporters — opining on air with mind-numbing certainty and Hive-like unanimity that the New York Post’s reportage on Hunter Biden’s laptop was “a lie,” “altered or fake,” “pure distractions,” and of course, “RUSSIAN DISINFORMATION.” I have posted the video once again below.

As a work of art, the video can stand alone. However, it was originally commissioned to accompany Matt Taibbi’s post “The Media Campaign to Protect Joe Biden Passes the Point of Absurdity.” In part Taibbi’s purpose was to shame a “herd of craven media stenographers,” but they are shameless. Taibbi revisited the video last week in “YouTube Censors Reality, Boosts Disinformation: Part 1.”

I thought the video lacked only a scroll of “credits.” Who are these shameless cretins? Thanks to reader Michael Cavino, who has put together the tentative list below, I can now ask you to imagine the names rolling at the end of the video in order of appearance (and reappearance) along with their affiliations at the time of their appearance on air:
