Why do so many of us detest “journalists”? Maybe it’s because they despise us and take it for granted that we’re way, way, way too stupid ever to see through any of their ham-fisted sophomoric tricks.
Like this one:
Yeah, ain’t that just too cute for words? “Sarah, does this administration [Donald Trump’s] believe slavery is wrong?” Oooh, I’ve got her, she’s toast!
God help me, I used to be a reporter! And an editor. But I think I can honestly say that what passes for everyday journalistic practice these days would have been laughed out of the room as comically unprofessional, back in the 1970s.
At least the local journalists were honest.
