Memo to Poynter: Just how many journalists have to be fired before your profession faces reality?


Gannett is slashing jobs and Poynter is whining about it. When all those people in the Rust Belt lost their jobs, journalists didn’t make a big deal out of it, just labelled them as idiots and fascists for voting for the presidential candidate who was the only one with a job platform.

Now that journalists are being discarded like used toilet paper, they act as if they were wronged in some horrible way and it is a national tragedy.

The press are acting as if a political cartoonist losing his job was akin to him being murdered.


Not even close.

You have journalists who keep doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome.

Wrong answer, kids!

Rats and pigeons being trained to modify their behaviour pick up faster than you are…
