The Washington Post’s Super Bowl ad said the paper exists because “knowing empowers us, knowing helps us decide, and knowing keeps us free.” Which category of “knowing” does this bombshell fall into?

Wow, what would the country do without so many firefighting “journalists” these days?

"Starbucks asks for name, writes a completely different name" is something that happens hundreds of times a day since literally forever, you clowns. https://t.co/RdhHoX7K1U

A glance under the headline of the story shows that not one but TWO reporters were on this one.
Starbucks is notoriously known for misspelling names: Brendan, Brandy, Breanna. But thanks for scandalizing a trivial error. Jerks.

If misspelling names that people hear spoken is national news, WaPo just needs to follow me around all the time. I could be someone's whole career. https://t.co/PCMribYne3

Earlier in the week, the WaPo was blowing the lid off pumpkin spice lattes and their “connection to a centuries-old genocide” and now this. Another banner week for “journalism”!
