There’s a meme right now where people are telling journalist (especially those just made redundant) to “learn to code”.
This is in response to journalists telling other laid off professions to do so.
But heaven forbid that they get a taste of their own medicine.
But it gets worse.
So now he’s claiming that his feelings weren’t hurt. But he reported it anyway.
Never mind that there might be a lot of people pissed off at the increasing bad behaviour. If people talk to each out about how bad journalism is, that’s a coordinated campaign and must be stopped by the authorities!
In other words, he’s yet another example of how journalism is going to fight to the death against the changes needed to stop it dying.
