With that haircut we all know the pink haired reporter would be more upset if a gamer called them straight
@Fairy Squad Mother, totally thought it was a helmet
@Your Darkest Secret, very true. Using the term journalist to describe these people is like calling a hawk a duck. They're related, but very very loosely. Most modern "journalists" don't have ethics, as they write opinion as fact and disregard proper fact checking.
Do we really want to lump that journalist with others?
@megamanx181x, when you've seen as many absurd hit pieces and just generally stupid articles about nonsense as I have, then yes
@Swagnamite, alright fair enough
@megamanx181x, my favorite so far is how kingdom come deliverance is racist for only including white people in a hyper realistic time period game based on a section of Europe that only had white people lol
@Natural Sarcasm , these are troubled times
@Natural Sarcasm , I love that game. I really need to finish it.
@megamanx181x, most the news articles I see the "journalist" contradict themselves at least 3 times, hate on white males and call anyone not black a racist so I honestly think they are being to nice here.
Edit: forgot to mention most also pass their opinions as facts as well
I guess everyone forgot about the journalists covering the wars in the Middle East
@lemongrenade, They get drowned out by opinion pieces.
Well the difference is investigative reporting vs click bait "journalism". Companies moved to the latter because it's easier to get ad revenue with flashy titles than to hire someone who will spend a year digging into a shady company.
If you want more investigative journalists support your local paper
This is why I want to be a journalist. I WANT the mafia to take me out
Me to journalists. “Learn to code”

I need context
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, journalists during the prohibition era and later were very proactive and went to very dangerous lengths to obtain true facts that would both make an interesting article and reveal things that the general public didn't know. Best example is Watergate. Journalists today will post faulty info without having done any research and will go on rants on Twitter about even the slightest perceived insult, even if it wasn't actually an insult. Source is probably most "journalists" who work for CNN, TMZ, Buzzfeed, or any other of a long list of "news" websites that don't actually have real news anymore.
@Your Waifu, I appreciate your feedback but, guess I should've been clearer. I was curious if there was a recent article about a journalist being called gay and bitching about it and need to take a leave of absence to let their hurt feelings heal
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, not a specific one that I can think of, though I've heard of many journalists and other media employees taking breaks and being bitchy because of perceived insults. Honestly, it's become such a common thing that all the stories kind of blend together, and as such I don't remember any specific instances off the top of my head, nor do I really care for those stories enough to consider looking for them.
As a reporter, can confirm there are SOME people like that. But there are still those that chase dangerous leads.
They are like the new age jehova witnesses. Except instead of knocking on your door to tell you about their religion, they tell you about all the things that offend them. They obviously never leave after they get into your home.
John Jonah Jameson, Jr.: “Are you?”
The thing I find hilarious about ppl getting offend so easily is that there r ppl out there that still seem to be surprised about the fact that there r a lot of ppl in the world that don’t give a fück about their opinion or feelings and if u look or talk or act like a weirdo they’re gonna make fun of u so u have no right to be surprised or upset when someone says you’re weird when u know damn well that they’re right
