One of the best things I've ever seen on Twitter: "Trump May be one of the first cast members of Home Alone 2 to sell nuclear secrets to the Saudis"

The NYTimes Pitch Bot account might be the final push I needed to cancel my subscription.

"Why the FBI's search of Mar-a-Lago is bad news for Biden" was just too real.

Ugh but they do some of the last remaining legit journalistic digging going on in this country. UGH

I give money to the Washington Post because (A) it's dumbly cheap through Amazon (B) one of my high school friends is a reporter there last I checked (C) they occasionally do good work. I give money to the Wall Street Journal because (A) they pay their journalists well to dig into things they fucking well feel like (B) they paywall the shit out of everything and it's super-annoying not being able to read their stuff. Their editorial board is awful, unspeakably so, but the NYT hasn't been much better.

And the NYT saw Jayson Blair, doubled down with Judith Miller and then hired Brett Stephens. Fuck the NYT.
