Things that piss me off a little bit?
Writing about some current event, examining and referencing primary source material. Then watching a week later — after it’s old news — as the lapdogs of the venal press slobber over the same report, but from the New York Times or Washington Post, because it’s the purported trustworthiness of the mediating commentariat not the actual sourced facts that matter.
The truth is hard… indeed. That’s why you need gatekeepers who’ve never left midtown and wouldn’t understand the difference between an episteme and a doxa if a Madison Avenue copywriter featured it in their advertising campaign.
