Forget about the fact that journalists are among the most ignorant, arrogant, self-righteous human beings to ever walk the earth. Forget that they have thrown journalistic ethics to the winds in promoting one liberal candidate after another and savaging one conservative politician after another.
Let’s just focus on CNN putting the word “fart” on their front page today in a headline.
Noisy farts, bathroom doors — couples’ boundaries – CNN.com
For a couple in their sixties, Cynthia MacGregor and her live-in partner, Grant, have few hang-ups about personal boundaries: In their household, the bathroom door is always open, regardless of what’s taking place inside.
I guess “fart” isn’t one of the seven deadly words for publication, but even so, I would not say that word in polite company, or even mostly casual company. For CNN to use it in a headline demonstrates that there really are no standards left whatsoever in the media.
