Glenn Greenwald — who has long believed that violent white supremacists are the one group in American society entitled to victim status — just about shit in his pants, and more to the point sent his hordes of alt-right flying monkeys against her:

Imagine if Greenwald showed even a fraction of the interpretive charity toward young, relatively powerless female journalists that he shows toward, say, powerful ultra-reactionary bullshit artists like Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz? (By the way, has that robust suite of anti-Wall Street measures been proposed by Cruz yet? I seem to have miss it while Ted Does half-Nazi salutes at the border.)
