At first I thought the NY Times was just culturally and ethnically clueless. I imagine their newsrooms to be as white as a Mormon temple. But I'm starting to wonder if they're just truly trolling us all. Think about it.
Rich people get to say stupid stuff in a media outlet that their socio-economic circle probably cums on as soon as their maid delivers it to them. Jezebel, Gawker, commenters everywhere, etc. get to huff and puff about how stupid and disconnected this demographic is. All that outrage drives up their click rates.
Maybe the NY Times is the biggest troll of them all. [imagine me saying this with a Morpheus voice]
And I only say this because I've seen a lot more articles get baitier and baitier — namely Carolyn Hax.
