The Morning Rant

"I always laugh at that stupid 'Democracy Dies in Darkness' slogan that the WaPo editors bravely started displaying on their front page after their preferred candidate didn't win last year. Do you know what democracy also dies in? It dies in poorly sourced news stories, printing rumors as facts, peddling fake news for clickbait, blatantly biased reporting, non-existent fact 'checking', incompetent editing, jackass reporters writing obvious nonsense that gets refuted within 24 hours, all covered with a thick layer of journalistic hubris and smug. If the media were doctors, they'd be swamped with malpractice suits. But they dish out garbage year after year, and instead of working to improve their product, they just give each other awards and congratulate themselves on their 'bravery', strutting around and preening like they're some kind of damned heroes. Screw them. Screw every one of those ass-clowns."
