We’re not entirely sure what Ronan Farrow was going for here with this weird gif on a tweet talking about how he became an investigative journalist but we gave up trying to understand these folks a long, long time ago.
Apparently, he owes his entire career to the tower rotation puzzle in ‘Myst’.
Don’t make that face, we didn’t write it. Sure, we’re covering it but the tweet? Not it.
All the theories about why I became an investigative reporter are wrong. The correct answer is: the tower rotation puzzle in “Myst.” pic.twitter.com/YKU5evI4Ko

Mollie Hemingway had a few questions about the tweet … maybe the super weird gif confused her too.
Remember your journalistically indefensible story about a woman spending 6 days with lawyers to “recover” a memory about Kavanaugh that you published with Jane Mayer? The one that destroyed your reputation as an investigative reporter? That was weird.

Yeah, SO weird.
Also, someone might want to get Ronan a little aloe for that burn … yowza.

We remember too.
Man I love when you throw down on somebody like this. Go Mollie!

And Ronan more than earned it with that awful Kavanaugh hit job he tried to pull.
Some of us aren’t quite ready to forgive and forget just yet.

She is truly one of our spirit animals.
Seriously. I thought Farrow was a diligent reporter until that. I’ll never read anything he produces again. He needs to go back to NeoGAF.

They’ve done this to themselves and the karma really is glorious.
