re you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, your finances, and your prosperity.
College newspaper will no longer report “triggering” news
Northwestern is one of the finest universities in the world and is particularly renowned for its journalism school.
The Daily Northwestern student paper, staffed by these aspiring journalists, recently apologized for covering a “traumatic” event on campus.
The traumatic event in question was a speech by former Trump official Jeff Sessions.
Unsurprisingly, some students protested the ex-Attorney General’s speech, and the newspaper covered the protest. But the paper said they inadvertently “retraumatized” these protesters in reporting the story.
Past generations were traumatized by fighting in the Vietnam War, or having police dogs sicced on them while marching for equal rights.
All it takes for these snowflakes is to be traumatized is a newspaper article about a man who has differing political opinions.
So the paper apologized and published an editorial promising that if a news event could be ‘triggering’ to the snowflakes, it just won’t be reported.
Once again– this is supposed to be one of the finest journalism schools in the world.
Sometimes Twitter reveals the true beliefs of the Bolshevik intelligentsia.
