It got to the point that, unless I was reading out loud, I read ahead and ignored the illiterates. Seriously, whatever happened to phonetics?
^This. I’ve had this happen in fucking college in a couple classes. Okay, I guess with foreign languages, it’s excusable, but in goddamn English and Business? NO!
This is new? This is YOUR generation? Hardly. This was me, twenty years ago. I hate to break it to you, but it happened to my parents. It happened to their parents, too. The biggest difference is we’ve started blaming the teachers instead of the students. Bravo.
Ha, what a crock of shit. I knew there were some editors that worked for The New York Times who were incredibly manipulative with their information, but this rash re-edit by Al Baker deserves some extra attention. While it was clear the NYPD were tasked with herding the protesters to the bridge with the intent on arresting them, Colin Moynihan wanted to make sure this was known by the public. But in Al’s world, things were somehow different.
I understand edits, that is why we underscore them, or nest them at the bottom of our original posts. The language presented appears to present the protesters as a rowdy group looking to challenge authority WITHOUT acknowledging the fact that the NYPD were herding them onto the bridge just to arrest them.
Crooked media is crooked.
Ladies and gentlemen, your “liberal” media. First hand accounts fit with the first piece written.
Why the edit?
