‘This is the way!’ Dave Portnoy destroys activist WaPo reporter with ‘master class’ in offensive play


Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy unflinchingly confronted Emily Heil, a Washington Post reporter, who was prepping a hit piece against him, claiming he was guilty of misogynistic and problematic behavior.

Two Washington Post reporters were allegedly working on the story when Portnoy got wind of it. They went so far as to contact the sponsors of an upcoming event he was putting on.

“So I caught wind that the Washington Post was proactively reaching out to the sponsors of my Pizzafest on Saturday and trying to shame them for being associated with me. I believe the legal term for that is ‘treacherous interference.’ Anyway, what I’ve learned over the years with these types of hit pieces is that you can’t give an inch. So rather than just sit back and let them dictate the pace of the game, I decided I’d speed them up and make them play by my rules,” Portnoy wrote on Barstool Sports.

“Take ’em down into the mud where I live. Here is a call with the reporter who was working on the piece…” he added on Wednesday and then posted the video showing his call with Heil.

Portnoy will host his “One Bite Pizza Fest” in Brooklyn, New York this Saturday, the day after the piece is supposed to go live. That’s obviously by design.

At the beginning of the call, Heil denied attempting to paint Portnoy in a negative light to his advertisers. He informed her he was recording the call and read to her the email that was sent to him by The Washington Post. She went on to claim that she was just attempting to reach the unnamed advertiser in a manner that would compel them to engage in an interview.

“I really wanted them to respond and I was hoping to get something from them,” Heil asserted.

“Do you think that’s fair? I totally disagree with the assertions that you said,” Portnoy responded.

They went back and forth and eventually agreed to do another recorded call on Thursday. The Washington Post canceled the call out of the blue.

“The @washingtonpost just cancelled the 10am call. Shocker. They proposed 5pm instead. I said 10am or nothing. They refused. What could suddenly be more important than this? The article has to come out Friday. So they’d leave themselves a few hours before going to print?” Portnoy wrote on X.

Users on X had a field day with this one and pointed out that it’s one more reason you can no longer trust the mainstream media at all:
