Leo Laporte Insults John C. Dvorak’s Writing on Windows Weekly

The wiser, more distinguished gentleman.
The wiser, more distinguished gentleman.

Leo Laporte can’t seem to keep his trap shut about John C. Dvorak.

The wise Dvorak hasn’t been back to TWiT since the banning, and he hasn’t been happy about all the insults (example, example, example, example). Always a man of class, Dvorak never responds in kind.

That doesn’t stop Leo Laporte from mentioning Dvorak at least once a week, however, almost always in a negative light.

In the video above, Leo makes fun of John again, doing his rude impression, and then makes fun of John’s headlines at PCMagazine. Paul Thurrott jokes that all of Dvorak’s current articles are rehashed content from the 1980’s with new product names inserted, and the portly Laporte agrees.

Just get over him, Leo!

  1. He continues talking shit about the man who gave him his start in tech. I’m disgusted that this human piece of garbage continues to exist. Why don’t you do everyone here a favor and eat yourself to death Laporke?

  2. I am betting John C. verbally retaliates on this week’s No Agenda. Leo won’t stop his antagonistic ways until John confronts him. (Leo got himself some weird passive aggressive behaviorisms) Once the great John C sinks to Leo’s level, Leo will send an email saying “we both said some things we regret, why not come on TWiT and bury the hatchet.”

    Leo goes low and John gets high like mobama@ameritech.com

      If I where Leo I would stop poking the bear. As long as JCD has known Leo I am sure he has see all kinds of shit Leo has done. It is unwise to slander JCD.

      Keep up the good work Leo, It just proves JCD is a real disciplined journalist and not a hack. Thurrott is another LaPorte whore.

    2. Never happen. John is too adult to play Leo’s games, and has far too much class to stoop to that level. What would he benefit from doing that? Get more listeners? Nobody listens to TwiT anymore. John’s doing just fine without Leo, and that’s what chaps Leo ever-growing khaki clad ass – John doesn’t need Leo. At all. Why would he light himself on fire, to keep Leo warm?

      Now, if John lets Adam’s muzzle loose, and sics him on Leo – that could be a lot of good old fashioned fun.

      I have to admit. I’m the farthest thing from being a Gay Homosexual…but the young JCD is one handsome guy. I can’t say I’d “do him” but having a “bromance” (man crush) is not out of the question.

        1. This is the funniest thing I’ve read today. The only thing I would add is that even though Sams is the twink, I’m sure Thurrott is the one getting it from behind. I watched last week’s first ring daily podcast and the way Sams mocks and abuses Thurrott is amazing. There is absolutely no way Thurrott is not bottoming for Sams.

      1. I admit I read it in 2004-2006. His Longhorn coverage was the best. And, he wasn’t always a Zune-loving fanboy.

        Read his first Zune review. No other tech journalist shat on that thing as much as Thurrott.

    1. Hanging your career (or podcast) on Windows has a short future these days. Microsoft’s growth area is corporate and Azure.
      And as this week’s DNS attack shows, counting on the “cloud” for essential functions is maybe not a good idea.

  3. I am sick of listening to Paul because his bullshit is just rehashed Microsoft Lust. The guy is completely biased. He can never admit that Microsoft makes poorly thought out products. He is a follower simply because it draws in income to fuel his life. John C. Dvorak is free range. He doesn’t give a shit and it is refreshing to here the good and bad from all sides. It is impossible to not like John even if you don’t agree with him, which honestly is not very often. Paul and Leo are being complete Hypocrites. Their entire profession is like a record player skipping. The advice and rehash of blogger bob reviews is so old now. I give Paul more credit because he puts more effort into most of his “work”. It still doesn’t mean he is giving quality advice based on his opinion. Paul is best when he just STFU and reports factual data. Leo does neither. He just barfs out whatever he reads elsewhere on the internet and slaps his own ads on it to make a buck.

  4. For such a fat piece of shit, Thurrott has a very thin skin. Mention ANYTHING he doesn’t like and you get banned / blocked by him. I’ve been banned at least 6 times by him now for the flimsiest of reasons.

    As for his writing, well consider how many “Rethinking Windows 8 / 10/ Xbox One / Windows Phone /etc.” articles he has to write due to fucking up and getting everything wrong as usual when a new product is released.

    He is a fucking joke. You would have to be insane to pay money to that clown for rehashed Microsoft PR articles on his shithole of a website.

  5. It is no surprise that the very labels that Leo & Paul placed on John (JCD) are aspects of themselves that they can’t face or accept.

    Maybe you know the saying, “When you point one finger, there are three fingers pointing back to you.” Jesus had a version of this wisdom when he said, “Don’t focus on the speck in your brother’s eye while ignoring the log in your own eye.”

    The fancy psychoanalytic term for this unconscious process is projective identification. We get rid of the unwanted feelings (projection) and identify them as belonging to someone else (identification). You can call it the shame relocation plan.

        1. When it comes to Leo, I prefer Matthew 19:23-26:

          “…it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

          Or, if you prefer, Mark 10:24-27.

          You can also find this sentiment in Luke 18:24-27.

          Oh, who are we kidding? St. Peter won’t be able to stuff Leo’s lardass through the pearly gates anyway.

  6. It must really get under Leo’s skin that JCD doesn’t play his game and respond back. He’s wanting to pick a fight in the worst way but John just keeps dodging it.

    The best way to annoy a narcissist is to just ignore them. They just can’t handle that.

  7. For as much as LL complains about Twitter trolls, he sure has no problem trolling JCD! And… What the hell is this? Let’s dog pile on JCD? I thought Paul was above this type of antics, don’t go along with the soup meister! I wonder if LL threw Paul an extra bone to troll on JCD. What pair of d-bags. WW is the only “netcast” I still download, but if this keeps up, I’ll Have to unsubscribe, it’s becoming a waste of time LL contributes nothing but wheezy laughs and a vailed attempt to show any sort of interest in Microsoft and Windows. Just one man’s opinion.

    1. I stopped listening to ALL of the Leo vanity network. All the shows have the same re-hashed stories. It’s just bad. Talk about phoning it in.

      Leo is also an annoying douche.

      1. He’s just a talentless, pathetic, unprepared comic relief trying to mask his ineptitude, laziness, and greed by showing up to work for 20 whole hours a week.

        If he were anyone but the owner he would have been fired years ago because he just wastes the listeners’ time on whatever show he’s ruining.

  9. I haven’t watched anything on twit with Leo in four years. Frankly, I don’t even watch any of the twit programs any more. I used to watch the live feed quite often. I still listen to AAA via pocket casts on my Nexus, but I care less and less as time progresses. Back when this operation was run at the cottage with Dane I actually believed that Twit was on the verge of being something amazing. How naive I was. I check in here periodically to remind myself to not be so foolish and unobservant.

  10. I always laugh when guys like Paul takes shots at guys like JCD who paved the way and established a way to make a living for Paul. How disrespectful to do. I only hear Paul on the “What the Tech” podcast and genuinely enjoy him on that.

    I went on Twitter to respectfully say I didn’t like him taking a cheap shot at JCD, only to find that at some point he blocked me. He must be that thin skinned where I must have disagreed with a Windows comment he said, he blocked me.

    It shows how both he and Mary Jo’s careers are going if they take some fat sexual deviant’s disregard for their show by showing up late (or not at all), and piss on their work along the way. Both are whores who sadly look at WW as their only payday from any of their work. Then again, THEIR rehashing of PR notices from MS I’m sure has a couple checks or cash paperclipped to them from MS.

  11. Also isn’t that basically exactly what Leo does all the time. It seems like every show he does (especially the tech guy) is a rehash or just flat out repeat of things he said a million times before.

  13. One doesn’t have to oversell JCD to justify complaining about Leo’s comments. JCD says plenty of idiotic things. We don’t need to put people on one side or the other.

    I think a broadcaster should absolutely demonstrate some class and avoid petty remarks. Even if justified, there will be many who disagree, and many others who will be all too eager to use those comments against you. It’s just never the smart thing to do.

    1. OK, but you can’t deny that TWiT was more entertaining (and arguably more interesting) with JCD on it, and Leo destroyed that , reducing the show’s value.

      He made a business decision with his tiny dick, doing what fed his tiny ego rather than doing what was best for his business. Dumb, just dumb.

    1. I came inside Megan during one of my masturbation fantasies. In that fantasy she was screaming for me to deposit my load deep inside her to fertilize her eggs. She preferred doggie style to finish the process. Does that make me the father in a way?…hmm…I’ll apply that notion to my next session.

  15. I have not been subscribed to any TWIT podcasts for over a year and half and I have to say my mental health is better. JCD is a lovable curmudgeon who brings interesting points into his work. He provides generic but useful information in his articles.

    Leo Laporte’s ‘product’ is now a washed-out shade of the tech-news coverage he was doing around the time of the brickhouse opening. Of course, that could be because Leo has run through all the interesting people he brought onto his shows in the early days.

    1. In my early and mid 20’s I got into TWIT because my brother had it on when he would do homework. Concurrently at the time I got heavy into a heavy meth addiction and all I could watch was TWIT and now I think I know why and it wasn’t becuz the shows had good content. TV shows and movies have screenplays / plots that need to be payed attention to be continuously entertained by. TWIT doesn’t possess any of this and during my great depression (3 years) on drugs the netcast network became simply white noise to escape from anything that was going on in my head. When I wake up from my daze at any hour and felt that I’m no better from listening even at times of clarity. I was like “hmmm I wouldn’t have learned shit if I payed attention because the network is shit ese.” (Imma Mexican)

  16. I cut out subscribing to twit a couple of years ago but still listened to the live feed. That dropped to 10 minute intervals 2 or 3 times a day. I am now down to zero. There are great podcasts out there and I include the No Agenda show amongst them, TWiT got real bad.

    Mike Elian just dropped a podcast episode, I was listening to that and my lover asked if I was listening to a long voicemail message,

      I just listened to Gum after reading that and was laughing, at this comment I quoted. If you play it, it does sounds like someone never hung up after leaving a voicemail and was being recorded unknowingly babbling.

      I also just put twit live on for first in months and TNT end-of-show asked people to sign up for “flashes” on Amazon Echo. A new ratings scheme? Why care?
