Is there any group of people who’ve had it harder in this country than journalists? The answer, of course, is no. Fighting all those fires and guarding all that truth really takes a lot out of them. They deserve a break. The Nation’s Jeet Heer knows:
When this is all over every journalist in America will need a six month vacation.

The journos will think of the journos. That’s all they think about. And yet, this detail about their lives managed to escape Jeet’s attention:
They had all of 2008-2016 off Jeet.

Like the one they took from 2009-2016?

They should be well-rested after 8 yrs of Obama.

One would think.
Nah. Those buckets of water they carried will tire anyone out.

OK, fair enough.
In any event, if Jeet and pals are really this worn out, maybe six months just isn’t enough time to really reset, you know?
I’ve got a longer term suggestion. https://t.co/tRMeU5tNCn

Make it permanent.

They're free to retire.
It would vastly improve things. https://t.co/20G2kWmf4b

Sounds good, we could use a vacation off from journalists.
