Kurt Eichenwald, who calls himself a contributing editor for Vanity Fair, says he plans to attack pro-Second Amendment Parkland shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv in an upcoming article.
Eichenwald plans to reveal a vast conspiracy against him by the conservative press, which he believes is spearheaded by the 16-year-old.
Eichenwald’s unhinged announcement comes just days after he became the subject of a viral video documentary detailing his decade-long transition into a living meme.
The beleaguered former New York Times journalist sent a series of emails to an establishment Republican commentator, revealing his plans to write about his baseless conspiracy theory alleging that the 16-year-old Kashuv has been coordinating with conservative journalists in the media to take him down.
“He has been actively working to trick journalists he believes work for non-Fox television networks into taking any action in something in which his twitter account was linked,” wrote Eichenwald in a rambling email about Kashuv’s supposed ties to conservative journalists.
“He has been coordinating with some of the trolls involved with these people,” added Eichenwald. “He in fact coordinated with the other guy with the podcast who was demanding my respect. He used the same trick on me as the other guy, which was unprovoked. (He used this garbage pushed by conservative media and leftists that I am a fan of tentacle porn.)”
Eichenwald’s “other guy” refers to outspoken teenage conservative C.J. Pearson, whom he had mistaken Kashuv for earlier this week following a previous Twitter meltdown.
“He did something similar with Joan Walsh – getting wrapped up in twitter combat with a Parkland parent whose child died,” continued Eichenwald. “Walsh followed the parent, and when he responded, she liked his tweet. Just like me, Joan apparently had no idea who Kyle was or even that his name was attached to the email.”
Eichenwald says he engaged in a direct message conversation with Kashuv, “which was quite disturbing.” He stated that he consulted with a psychiatrist for a diagnosis of Kashuv over the Internet, with claims reading very much like an armchair psych diagnosis written by someone who browsed WebMD for an hour.
“Kyle is in desperate need of psychiatric help or support,” claimed Eichenwald. “The psychiatrist did not have enough information assess if the issues he saw in the conversation were the consequence of the shooting, being psychologically unprepared for being thrust into the conservative media as a go-to kid, or if there is an underlying pathology that preceded these events.”
Eichenwald says that the psychiatrist found Kashuv’s messages to be “deeply disturbing.”
The erstwhile Vanity Fair editor says that the prompt response conservative journalists had toward any remarks he made about the shooting survivor was evidence of collusion. He believes that conservative journalists are perpetrating the “knowing or unknowing abuse of a psychologically troubled kid to advance an agenda on behalf of Laura Ingraham.”
He concluded his email to state that he consulted yet another mysterious friend who is a “conservative rabbi” to understand the Republican commentator’s actions, as they share the same religion.
“I will not get into the details of whatg he said, but he was horrified by what you’re doing. The word ‘atonement’ was said many times,” claims Eichenwald.
This is far from Eichenwald’s first attempt to bully and misrepresent the targets of his ire. Last week, Eichenwald sent a long series of emails to Richard C. Meyer, the owner of the “Diversity and Comics” YouTube channel, demanding a response or face a lawsuit.
Beginning of letter that @kurteichenwald just sent me.
Following Eichenwald’s implosion, a spokesperson for Vanity Fair informed The Daily Beast’s Max Tani to state: “Kurt Eichenwald is not a contributing editor at Vanity Fair.” Strangely, Eichenwald contradicted the statement, telling CNN’s Brian Stelter that he remains a contributing editor.
The Vanity Fair credit remains on Eichenwald’s Twitter profile, which previously noted his contributions to MSNBC and Newsweek, both of which he has since removed during previous meltdowns.
