Before proceeding, it might be wise to put on some gloves and a raincoat, because this tweet from the Washington Post is dripping with disdain.
Ready? Ok, here goes:

The implication in premise of stories like these is positively ghoulish. https://t.co/64lXqURRts

Some of the counties have running water, though. Even indoor plumbing.
Yes, Obamacare killed rural hospitals. Nice that you re now discovering it. https://t.co/Hd5IIABDF1

We’ve come to expect nothing less. And CNN will probably try to top WaPo again soon.
