How Did They Find A Worse One

The NYT's new columnist, Pamela Paul, is maybe their worst one yet!

Not going to link it, you can find it if you want, but so much of the "cancel culure/me too backlash" stuff is just written by people who have no understanding of, "if the boss tells you to do (or not to do) something, and you don't (or do), you can be fired," which is basically the Frank Langella "fired by Netflix" situation. Of course the column, as these columns always do, elides the known facts of the story.

Give how awful her columns are, it makes sense that she has no understanding of this! I'd take these people more seriously if once, just once, they covered what they considered to be an "unjust firing" of someone who wasn't a fairly famous person that they identified with.
