the npr firing kim kelly story has surfaced this absolute gem

fuck jOuRnaLIsM eThIcS, just absolutely 100% deranged in a way that serves only and always to ensure that political journalism is in the service of bootlicking and bootlickers.

The Kim Kelly thing is weird cause by her own account, she hasn’t written for them in nearly two years

(Edit) looking into it, she wrote 7 stories for them over 6-7 years and was on a handful of all songs considered episodes a year or so before that

Calling her fired is... uh, not correct and I’d be more inclined say it’s that they just didn’t want to take her pitches anymore and it just took the form of NPR’s dumb view from nowhere ethics policy (which covers plenty of people beyond her).

Or maybe they read her dumb as shit article about why guns are good

i am not even trying to go to bat for kim kelly here, though i wouldn't 'well actually' the semantics of npr deciding to stop working with someone who'd apparently written a profile for them, only to get dropped in the middle of the publication process after tucker carlson went after her

the aida chavez thing is 1000x more infuriating because you can hear the fucking smugness and condescension and moral surety dripping from every word of that note to her

It reminds me of that Todd Starnes excerpt that went viral way back, but no one ever pretended Starnes was fucking Nabokov

andy ngo has spent all week trying to tie the dayton shooter to antifa, meanwhile an associate of his from portland just got charged for breaking a woman's neck with a police baton during a protest that happened in may. there's literally video of him helping the guy get past a police barricade to help her, video that andy himself filmed.

cool that mainstream media glorified him as an important, impartial journalist. that doesn't put anyone in portland in danger, not at all.

this is Canadian-specific (and also just kind of confirms what has been thuddingly obvious), but it's still an interesting read

Ft has always been the best business publication, but 25 bones a month for digital always seemed like a bridge too far.

Edit: got it for 3$ a week, probably sbould subscribe to more papers but all the big ones piss me off too consistently
