We’re so confused!
Or at least we would be if the notion of “the principles of journalism” weren’t just a colossal joke these days.
The “principles of journalism”! How quaint. Maybe there once were principles, but they’ve been sold out for quite awhile now.

Weaponized? Well then, seems they’re holding the gun.
