Media IT Incompetents Hall of Shame


The most important IT qualification is an IT education, since experience without foundational education is meaningless; having worked unqualified for years is not itself a qualification, just a condemnation of the employer. For writers, the most important advice has always been "write what you know", including going to college to study the subject you are going to write about, not journalism or communications. For democracy to work, the media is supposed to keep the public, government, and business well-informed. An IT education means a BS or better (for higher positions) in an IT subject like computer science or electrical engineering (ideally both) from a good university. See Stop IT Incompetence page.

Trading security for IT incompetent diversity is a fool's bargain. See Stop IT Incompetence page.

A foreigner working in American IT is suspect, particularly in regards to qualifications and security; it makes one IT incompetent. And foreigners taking American jobs is just wrong. A foreign writer should not write for Americans because he cannot know what Americans think and feel about IT issues like censorship, privacy, and foreigners taking American jobs, like IT writing. See Stop IT Incompetence page.

Alphabetical by organization, then alphabetical by last name of individual in the organization. Or just "Find". See also the other wings of the IT Incompetents Hall of Shame: Government ITIHOS or Business ITIHOS.

The IT Incompetents Hall of Shame will be continuously updated and there are enough IT incompetents to last for a long time to come; check back often.

Guardian fake IT reporter Glenn Greenwald.

Glenn Greenwald



Guardian newspaper reporter, and author of the book No Place To Hide, about traitor and NSA incompetent IT tech Edward Snowden. Now at the disreputable Intercept, funded by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar (an Iranian born in Paris).

No IT education. Only a BA in philosophy and a JD (law degree). IT incompetent by his own admission (No Place To Hide).

Expatriate: lives in Brazil. The Guardian is British.

Greenwald wrote a blog about the NSA, which mostly does IT, even though he was IT incompetent. In what has been called the worst espionage incident in U.S. history, he and The Guardian accepted highly-classified NSA documents from traitor and NSA incompetent IT tech Edward Snowden. As a lawyer Greenwald would almost certainly object to someone without a legal education practicing law, but to make his story, and career, he falsely portrayed high school dropout Edward Snowden as an IT expert.

PC Magazine fake cybersecurity reporter Michael Kan.

Michael Kan



PC Magazine cybersecurity reporter.

No IT education. Only a BA in history and Asian studies.

Has lived, studied, and worked in China. Fluent in Chinese.

From Kan's LinkedIn page: "I cover cybersecurity, tech news and my articles appear in PCMag. Prior to that, I covered China's IT industry from Beijing." Apparently, he was comfortable with Chinese censorship, particularly about cybersecurity. Did he report on Chinese hacking of Americans? PC Magazine is used by IT incompetent news sources like Fox News as their tech reporting.
