    JFC did all the local Chicago news producers just fall in line with CPD talking points this morning about the 100th vacant building demolition?

    They R all so enthused by it U'd think it was July 4th. I mean there is going to be a ceremony beforehand in front of the property? This is some David Simon shit.

    The fuck is going on with these Creepy Clowns? 3 dudes dressed as clowns wandered onto a Waukegan elementary school playground & told the kids they were coming back to burn the school down?

    Trump's America is apparently a bunch of under sexed, cowardly losers into dressing up like clowns.

    Nothing short of depressing to think I woke up this morning and was reading about Aleppo and am going to bed seeing more news about Kanye meeting with Trump.

    Rolling Stone has less than half has many pages as it did when it first shrank down to its current size almost 10 years ago, this issue I bought I bought a month ago just because Obama was on the cover only has 2 album reviews in it.

    I paid $7 for this and they seriously had the nerve to stick a "make ____ great again" joke in it.

    It's 2017 and the New York Times is employing a Zionist, neo-conservative to write op-ed pieces accusing climate activists of being out of touch elitists and accusing Jeremy Corbyn of being nothing other than an anti-Semitic, Putin apologist.

    The New York Times does provide great coverage from all over the world, but it's opinion writers are almost all toxic assholes.

    Yes, thank you NY Times for giving column space to Trump supporters. This is what we need and this is why we should all pay for that hard hitting journalism that is under attack and doing such a remarkable job uncovering the truth.

    So very sick of that genre of story, and am quite certain the subjects of them never bother wondering why everyone hates them or their terrible fucking ideas.

    I live for Ashley Feinberg torching Chris Cillizza multiple times a week on Twitter

    Cillizza's mentions are absolutely brutal and he completely deserves it

    just the ones from today are good:








    it's not that these are well crafted zingers, its that she so thoroughly captures the sense of exasperation about every news story that i also share. and she posts these about Cillizza at least 3-4 times a week, along with other exasperated commentary. i'm a little obsessed with her online persona.

    as for Cilizza's mentions, his ratio is out of this world:

    Shit like that is the reason that I've basically stopped paying attention. I'm trying to focus my political energy in a more productive manner with the very little time that I have nowadays anyway.

    I don't think it's helpful to boycott the New York Times though. It shouldn't be giving column space to Trump supporters, but these idiots have employed Thomas Friedman and Maureen Dowd for a very long time. Their opinion pieces have always been bad and probably so has their national coverage. The work that they do abroad is often outstanding though. They recently commissioned a former professor of mine to write about the protests in Iran (they pulled out after the protests died down so it was published to Jacobin instead, but he still got paid).

    the list of tweets where Cilizza has frequently referred to something as "Trump's Best Speech" is astounding

    i agree that following the mainstream news, watching cable news, and getting your news from Twitter has ceased to make anyone "informed". it only informs you of irrelevant shit.
