Shock! Female Millennial Clickbait "Journalist" Is Super Duper Impressed by Her Non-Accomplishments, Wants Experts to Defer to Her Non-Expertise

A "journalist" at noted leftwing clickbait outrage site New Republic.

All journalists do think this -- they think that merely being a reporter on some beat makes them a subject-matter expert on the beat covered.

If you're a science reporter -- pumping out fake "chocolate prevents heart attacks!" stories fed to you by a guy clowning on the media -- that makes you An Scientist. If you report on business or the economy, that makes you An Businessman or An Economist.

Any journalist who has ever written a short story about CERN thinks she's pretty much a high-energy physicist, only technically missing a credential here or there, but otherwise, yeah, a working high-energy physicist herself.

They really do believe this. "I wrote the word 'quarks' in an article one time! And now I can split atoms with my mind!!!"

Because they're stupid. The stupid do not know what they don't know.

Everything seems simple to the stupid, because they're simple-minded themselves.

And a friend points out: Five years doing something hardly makes anyone an expert. A medical doctor who's been a physician for five and a half years would still call himself young and inexperienced. A musician who's been doing it for five years would still think of himself as raw.

Again, only a complete incompetent looks at her completely unimpressive credentials and is impressed by them.

Bonus: Donkey-Chompers declares "Patriarchy has no gender."

Although Patriarchy has no gender, I'm reliably informed it does have a big old dicknballs.

thanks to steevy.
