GQ correspondent Julia Ioffe has a message for everyone out there expecting the media to prop up their preferred candidate:

For someone who is so much against boosting a preferred candidate, Julia sure does seem to have a knack for making a preferred candidate look good.

We might actually respect Julia a little bit if she’d just own that she’s a hack.
