Tennis Deep State Media Evidence

“He who controls the information controls the people…”

Chris Clarey is a longtime tennis deep state media asset. He’s worked for New York Times and written a recent book on Roger Federer though Federer, retired for over a year, is a fading entity.

Ben Rothenberg also worked for the New York Times and was a major anti Novak Djokovic critic/attack dog/smear campaign weapon. Though Rothenberg’s villainization agenda failed to assassinate the character and career of Djokovic particularly due to his adamant stance of freedom of choice of what and what not he wanted to put into his body, his working relationship with the Times was ended and then he was reassigned by the tennis deep state to help Naomi Osaka write her autobiography.

Like Federer, four-time Grand Slam title winner Osaka is a fading attraction due largely to her militant political activisism which alienated a large or even majority of her once enormous fanbase. Also, Osaka hasn’t played a match in about a year. Osaka’s star power has crashed because of her leftist politics and self victimization habits, several of her ardent supporters told me, “I used to love her, now I can’t stand her” and other variations of this message.

But the tennis deep state wants to promote and celebrate her again and her forthcoming book which surely will primarily be based on more of the same old moaning and groaning about how difficult her life is and the endless struggles with mental health and depression. But people have their own problems and don’t want to read about a $50m tennis champion whining.

Rothenberg’s questionable journalistic tactics caused him to be kicked off twitter a while ago but he has recently resurfaced in September with a new account and a couple of hundred followers, including Clarey, and most of the other tennis media deep state suspects. The deep state tennis media stick together.

It’s not known who controls the deep state tennis media tribe but there’s no doubt to anyone with a half a functioning brain that they have their agendas, tendencies, targets and favorites. And they certainly have their methods to activate and execute their agendas.

How do I know?

Well, ask yourself, why doesn’t the tennis media deep state create a new book about the most popular, exciting, transcending figure in all of tennis today, Novak Djokovic? A positive book about Djokovic’s journey would be a monster success, and it would generate far more revenues than a new book on yesterday’s news Federer or Osaka. (No major publisher was interested in my positive Djokovic book Facing Novak Djokovic, which has earned nothing but four and five star reviews on Amazon. Steve Tignor called my Facing Federer book “additive reading.”)

But the deep state tennis media doesn’t want to promote or celebrate the positive story about the greatest champion in the history of tennis any more than it has to, which is as minimal as they can get away with. The deep state tennis media will not assign Clarey or Rothenberg to write a positive book about Djokovic. It is willing to sacrifice itself maximum profits from a Djokovic book for its long term plans.

“There are two primary areas of media agenda setting: 1, the media tells us the news and 2, the media tells us what to think about the news. Press coverage sends signals to audiences about the importance of mentioned issues, while framing the news induces the unsuspecting viewer into a particular response. Additionally, news that is not given press coverage often dissipates, not only because it lacks a vehicle of mass communication, but also because individuals may not express their concerns for fear of being ostracized.” – unknown

“The tennis media is awful, the worst.” – Reilly Opelka

    Love it. It is amazing how much people stop caring once the career is over. Maybe they are waiting until Nole retires to write the positive book, and then no one will care. ATPTOUR.COM treats Novak well in my opinion. They celebrate his accomplishments and dominance.

    Pete Bodo and John Wertheim seem like deep state tools. I like Steve Tignors writing so I ignore his biases.

    Matt, they do now. But Nolefam pointed out some ignorances of Djokovic achievements the last few years. But the heavy Nolefam criticism on social media seems to have corrected the ATP from making those oversights. The power of Nolefam is something very special and influential. Nolefam is why Rothenberg has been reduced to irrelevance.

    Bodo and Wertheim are 100 percent absolute deep state tennis media assets. The list is quite long actually. Mike Dickson, Morgado, Law, Bouchard, Stubbs, Shriver, many more. Their coverage of tennis is marred by agendas and militant political activism.

    Interesting Daniela Hantuchova on players’ complaints about the conditions: “It feels a bit like spoiling. Especially on the women’s circuit, where the prize money is what it is, and the girls certainly don’t work from four in the morning in a mine somewhere. It’s difficult, but we never allowed ourselves to criticize because we knew that the checks we were getting were thanks to the tournament.”

    Steve Tignor called my Facing Federer book “additive reading.”

    Scoop, so you wrote a book about math?? 🔢 😉

    Whoops, “addictive reading.”
