David Pogue Puts Leo Laporte in His Place

You got Pogued, fat man!
You got Pogued, fat man!

Well-respected journalist and sometimes Apple shill David Pogue finally put Leo Laporte in his place during the pre-show on The New Screen Savers.

Leo tried to belittle his guest, saying he forgot Pogue was there, but Pogue came right back with a dramatic mic drop letting Leo in on what we already know: he’s not an important journalist.

We’d go one step further: He’s not a journalist at all.

Fake Android expert Ron Richards was thankful that no one would ever see the clip, saving Leo the embarrassment of anyone seeing the video above.

    1. That begs the question…what is it that Leo does in the first place?

      He always says he considers himself a “pundit”. That he “editorializes”. He’s not a journalist, a researcher, an inventor, an innovator – just “riffing” basically on what comes across his desk and indeed mind.

      Wikipedia says of “pundit”:

      “A pundit is a person who offers to mass media his or her opinion or commentary on a particular subject area (most typically political analysis, the social sciences, technology or sport) on which he or she is knowledgeable (or can at least appear to be knowledgeable)

      The bolding there is mine and definitely accounts for how Leo is able to view this – he’s made a career out of fooling the masses with smoke & mirrors, buzzwords and trying to “simplify” things.

  1. What happened to the photos of Lisa that were being included in the past handful of posts? I’ve been masturbating to them daily and am looking for more! She’s got a body to die for! I would’ve cheated on my wife, subsequently driving my daughter insane, and flushed my multi million dollar company down the toilet for one lick of that asshole!

    God bless America, and God bless Leo Laporte! He’s living the dream! Leo “Legend” Laporte. Keep doing your thang, baby! Don’t listen to these jealous assholes.

          1. A street walking whore? In your dreams. This a woman who knows exactly what she wants and how to get it. You could smell the fumes coming off those jeans! I wouldn’t be able to resist! And neither could the married Leo “Legend” Laporte.

            Haters gonna hate while Lisa is rolling and money and getting treated like a princess. Deal with it.

            Smell the fumes? WTF. Anyway, she is not worthy of anyone’s respect.

  2. The area where Lecia/Jarvis goes wrong is posts like these. When Leo makes a joke that he is fat, or firing the engineers or needs a butler it’s called self-deprecating humor. Then Jarvs swoops in with an I-gotcha article as if he caught him. These suck. You need Helloworlds sense of humor to write that post. Otherwise you look foolish.

    The good ones are when you point out something we would miss. The conflicted stories about the bricks. The lies. The Artisinal Agency rhetoric. The negative responses to Leo on Twitter. Those are good. Otherwise you suck.

    Ok, hit me with pseudonym commenters. Argh argh argh.

    1. >You need Helloworlds sense of humor …

      If Helloworld actually had a sense of humor he probably wouldn’t have spent so much time deleting comments, rewriting comments, and generally being a moron.

      Hellodog,

      We are all getting fucking sick of you around here. Clearly you want to suck HelloWorld’s cock and I implore you to do so since having a cock in your mouth will shut your ass up.

      Get Fucked,

        1. I’m not offended by this site. I’m just not interested in unfunny insulting shite.

          I have no complaints about this post. Leo isn’t a journalist. Pogue got a dig in, Leo took it on the chin. It’s more like a highlight reel moment than an article. And that’s fine.

          Helloworld was horrible at what he did here. I’m happier with Leica overall.

      this comment rings true…. there was no ill will between the two and everyone can believe that soup was not paying attention (as he should have been) and did forget….

      This article was phoned in… Just like soup phones in most of his shows these last 4 or 5 years.

    1. Why watch?

      It’s the same rehashed ‘content’ dished out by TWiT regulars. Nothing ‘new’ about it – just the same old TWiT trash.

      Maybe he’ll come to his senses and junk the whole thing.

  3. Apple not inviting Leo anymore was the biggest sign of public disgrace for Leo. Damn, this hurt the guy. There’s not a month going by that Leo needs to give his (ever changing) spin on this. Love it!!

    You cannot deny that he still feels that he’s no longer relevant enough to even get an invitation. And not only Leo’s ignored by Apple, his whole TWiT company is basically marked as too irrelevant.

    What must he feel every time he has someone on his program who does get invited.

    Sure, it’s just Apple, but it’s obvious it means a whole lot for people like Leo. Love it and especially when other people remind Leo of it

    1. I can’t wait for Rene and Andy to describe the new Apple Campus 2 in detail, and how great it is, and how great the theater is….and Leo will just sit there like a bitter fat stupid diabetic moron, wondering how his constant Apple-bashing could have resulted in his permanent exile from Apple.

        1. That could be, he’s not the Apple fanboy he used to be, but I think a lot of it is he’s just not willing to spend the money to fly across the country for these things. He has implied that his job is more rumination and analysis, while Rene and iMore have to get the stories up fast while they’re hot.

          OK, they’re stories about computers, so maybe hot is the wrong word.

    2. In Leo’s Petaluma kingdom he has a degree of control and maybe some influence . But to get bitch slapped and blacklisted by Apple is really a insult, that he can’t accept. He is helpless, and it’s something you can’t fix by writing a check. Once Theee Tech Guy now has to invite younger, smarter tech guys on his show so he can still feel relevant.

        This was clearly evident when he chose to belittle the entire Apple event by turning it into a game of Bingo. What a disgraceful and bitter asshole he’s become since being blacklisted. It’s the same way he treats staff and sheep who cross him. This is no different than when a spoiled child has a tantrum, except for Laporke it manifests itself in stupid gags like Bingo and not giving a fuck about anyone or anything anymore (except for his cocksucking whore wife).

        Get off the fucking Internet you irrelevant fuck! You contribute nothing to society and your legacy will always be showing your small stubby cock and your whore’s mangled pussy.

        1. Leo’s fragile ego can’t take it when everyone is invited to play and he’s excluded, so he is just blinded by hatred for Apple now. Rather than offering constructive criticism of Apple’s products and services, he just reflexively bashes all things Apple…what kind of pundit does that? Any idiot with a microphone can do that.

          “Apple’s new gizmo/service sucks because…it’s not like Android!”

          I just love it when he talks about what an Apple fan he is. He’s the only one who believes that bullshit.

          1. Actually Leo loves it when people think he is blackballed. It makes the sad man feel important as if Apple Inc. is mad at him. In reality they forgot him and that is what bothers him.

            Do you un-insightful followers believe he brings up that he is blackballed every show for any other reason than it make the small man feel big?

            It is like me talking about how Pres Obama dislikes me when in real life he doesn’t care who I am .

            He was a fan of what Apple ‘was’ not what Apple has become. Has nothing to do with being blackballed from events, and everything to do with the blandness of Tim Cook’s Apple.
