Good riddance, again and again

To hell with Matt Lauer — and all of these boring, creepy assholes who have shaped American mass media into the rotting landfill it is today. They are predators — and good riddance. They’ve interfered with far too many young journalists’ career aspirations.

I’ve argued that the U.S. is confronting this sexual harassment reckoning perhaps a bit too swiftly, and that a bit of nuance might be needed as workplace dynamics shift tectonically this winter. But, as far as media “names” go, I don’t think the world of journalism has lost anyone worth a damn.

In other news today: The Supreme Court began hearing the biggest privacy rights case in decades. Might want to tune in.
