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…
