I'm beginning to believe that journalists are the most hideous cowards in America, ruthlessly passive-aggressive self-anointed bullies who abjectly fucking run from accountability before the first whiff of it gets to them.

Journalist 101

I went into journalism because I want to write stories that will have an impact and change the world. I consider myself a progressive fighting for change!

And later after the shooting begins

I WAS JUST TRYING TO REPORT ON FACTS AND INFORM PEOPLE!!!

There is a reason why even the ancient Greeks warned their children against becoming too prideful with the stories of Narcissus and of King Midas.

There is also a very similar reason why we're seeing so many mental illnesses pop up in our modern culture.

(((Journalism))), not journalism. Actual real journalism requires investigation, verification of sources & claims, research, the ability to form connections & network, a sense of tact, an ability to suppress personal bias and look at things objectively, and finally the ability to NOT be a lying sack of shit & an unhinged bully with an over-inflated ego and a chip on your shoulder.

(((Journalism))) is sitting on your fat ass all day in front of a computer, drinking soy lattes and being a snippy effeminate bitch who seeks to ruin the careers & lives of political opponents, critics and people you didn't like in high school all while exercising that streak of mean girl/bully vitriol like you're still a junior in high school - even thought you're fucking 35. In short, being a Jew.

Thanks. Interesting event.

“We’ve run this content before,” Ms. Hasson said. “I supported it, and I supported the publishing of the info.”

“As journalists, we are prepared for criticism,” Ms. Hasson said, as she sat in her meticulously tended office and described the ways her 225 employees have been harassed since the article was published. “But in the U.S., journalists should not be threatened.”

Perfect example of self-entitled unaccountability right here.

In my opinion, if a journalist intimidates a private citizen by publicizing personal information, then journalistic ethics don't apply, and the fucking rules are off. Game on.

And these tools did this to gun owners. Brilliant.
