Newspaper editor says $8 a month for Twitter Blue 'is a tax on journalism'

We were amused the other day by someone we’ve never heard of yelling about how celebrities like himself shouldn’t have to pay to be verified. Initially, word was that people would be charged $20 a month to keep their Twitter blue checks, which led Stephen King to say he’d be “gone like Enron” (promise?). The real deal is that Elon Musk is trying to get people to sign up for Twitter Blue for $8 a month, although poor Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is still haggling over the price. We haven’t seen entertainment or sports celebrities complain as much as journalists, who have come to believe that the $8 a month charge is “a tax on journalism.” Leyland DeVito is the editor-in-chief of the Detroit Metro Times.

We have no problem with that.

You don’t have a blue checkmark and therefore we afford you no credibility.  He’s not a good dude.

What have journalists done this month besides pile on another journalist for revealing that John Fetterman needed close captioning and call out a real journalist who uncovered Facebook’s monthly meeting with the FBI to get its marching orders?
