As Twitchy reported earlier this week, it was a bad week for journalists and bloggers. BuzzFeed announced it was laying off 15 percent of its workforce, or about 250 people, and the HuffPost Opinion section was scrapped entirely.

As we said before, we ourselves work in media and certainly can’t celebrate writers being laid off, but we’re also conservatives, and so we can’t be too upset with all of the people who are telling those laid-off journalists to “learn to code.”

Here’s the editor-in-chief of Jalopnik:

When a president says he’s going to put your industry out of business and the response is that workers with a lifetime of experience should just learn to code? Yeah, that kind of stings when it’s your job on the line.

Exit question: How many BuzzFeed and HuffPost journalists do you think voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016? You know, the candidate who said, “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”
