Totally agree describing it at “straight up enjoyably watchable trash.” My sister was recommending it to me, but all of the articles I was reading turned me off. well one day, I was bored and watched it. Not my type of show, but I just kept watching. Even my boyfriend watched it and mention how awful but addicting it Read more

I was a kid then too but I feel like a lot was made of how young she was. Her youth was part of her brand. Like on appearances, hosts and DJs would be like “You’re just 15 years old!” or whatever.

This is the most accurate description. My girlfriend started watching this show while I was making dinner or playing video games or whatever and I just kept thinking “this is awful” as I got sucked in more and more until I was just straight up watching it along with her to the end. It’s amazing how compelling the Read more

I never got too into it, but I had a journalism teacher who said they typically scrubbed out the “uh”s and other verbal tics when doing a story. It doesn’t add anything to the story, and you can needlessly make anybody sound stupid if you want. Read more

I mean once you rule out Bernie & Warren’s lack of a track record addressing the issues and concerns of people of color and stealing HER ideas, Mayor Pete’s shitty history with people of color and lack of experience and Joe Biden’s numerous flaws, friends with segregationists, Anita Hill & constant flubbing of words Read more
