Why are the comments on splinter always filled with dipshits that think every single writer has the same opinion on every topic?
Barstool isn’t more successful than Deadspin. As Drew mentions in the piece, Deadspin gets significantly more traffic. I can’t even find Barstool on any list of top sports sites by traffic. That’s how little they matter in terms of clicks.
This would be a devastating blow if they hadn’t already addressed it and evolved as a company and a brand while long-term writers like Drew and Barry have apologized for Deadspin’s past (and their own on this site) and jumped aboard the “don’t write like an asshat” train.
And yet no one is scrambling to abandon the Deadspin brand because
brands are helpful and important.Deadspin has made concerted efforts to shift away from misogyny over the last 8 years.
Dave Portnoy is the real life equivalent of Dennis Reynolds.
Some cities are canceling contracts with ICE. I’ve been going to freeholder meetings in Jersey trying to get my city to do that. Trust me, their stance on it does matter. ICE will get taken down after rising pressure from local municipalities.
It’s a way of leading with your values and energizing your base. Its how Republicans keep getting things done that seemed impossible just a few election cycles ago
So... she thinks it should be abolished and would potentially vote to do so if she ever makes it to the federal level. In the meantime, I’m sure she understands that she can’t do that right now. She’s a community organizer who has supported abolishing ICE for some time. Also, it’s a plank of the DSA party platform. …
She should have slapped the shit out of that official, I applaud her restraint.
Why do you read this website? Seriously.
No, this is an incredibly stupid take. You sound like 45* here, with boring calls for “loyalty” in the face of whatever comes out. Your faux outrage is so laughable.
It’s even worse than that.
I assume someone needs to sober up a bit before a conversation occurs.
That sounds entirely plausible. I’m assuming she was drunk, and they’re giving her time to dry out before questioning her. Somebody went over the protocol for cops committing crimes way back during the Mike Brown murder, and the deference cops get is just amazing.
But it turns out the criticisms had nothing to do with her. It was all just misogyny, you see.
wow who’s that asshole
Person: “Could you not make jokes about ‘sage smudges’? I’m a Native American and it hurts to hear you make fun of tribal rituals.”
The “cool kids’ table” is the one where you publicly question someone’s professed online identity, I take it?
I can’t fathom how ugly you have to be on the inside to say to someone, on a public forum: “How do I know you’re really the ethnicity you claim?”
