New York Times opinion writer Kara Swisher recently delivered a commencement address with an inspiring message:

“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice” sure sounds nice on its face. But if you really stop and think about it, it actually starts to sound kinda not all that awesome.

Maybe telling kids not to listen to other people’s opinions is not the best message to be sending them.

It’s also a pretty confusing message, given the New York Times’ own attitude toward certain employees’ inner voices.

Give us a call when the New York Times decides to practice what you’re preaching, Kara.

We’re sure that Bari Weiss has some thoughts on Kara Swisher’s speech.
