What can we say other than CNN’s Chris Cillizza is the proud owner of an “America Needs Journalists” sweatshirt and he decided to show it off during the COVID-19 pandemic.
I am now a proud owner of this sweatshirt

It does have sort of a double meaning, though.
This shirt is accurate.
America needs journalists.
We don’t have any right now. https://t.co/bmJF9f0K8X

Why do you have that tho?

If @CNN gave you that, better polish up your resume.

So when is CNN going to start hiring them????
— Blaire White (@MsBlaireWhite) March 31, 2020
When will @CNN start hiring journalists? You guys should have at least one or two.

That is unironically true, coming from a guy like you.

What is a journalist? Isn’t that kind of an archaic thing?
— Charmed (@hey_bernie) March 31, 2020
You're right, because what we have right now in the mainstream media is not that.

We do need journalists, because the ones we have now are just worthless activists. Someone, send us some real journalists!!

Here's the thing… America does need journalists.
But the way these people praise themselves and make themselves out to be these warfighters really rubs me the wrong way.
Talk to an actual warfighter… You'll never see him/her doing some self-aggrandizing shit like this. https://t.co/W3YbQzcsVz

America doesn’t need 98% of these journalists

They are delusional if they think journalists are vital to anyone. I laugh at their inept attempt to be fair and objective. They are stealing the little money they are paid and society wouldn’t miss them at all. It’s not like they are doctors, nurses, or in the military

America needs journalists like we need AOC. Seriously, we totally DON'T.
— Dee Ann (@USFDee) March 31, 2020
Yes we certainly do. Any idea when we're going to get them?

Maybe the J-schools are going to ramp up production by cutting out some of the activism and indoctrination classes.
