This video of solemn, disgruntled, baffled, clueless NEW YORK TIMES writers — bitching about losing their coveted guaranteed defined benefit (DB) pension plan — looks like something the ONION would have produced — only the NY TIMES version is funnier. It’s worth a viewing.
“I’ll be eating cat food”? Living in “cardboard boxes”??
The video was made by writers/luminaries at the newspaper and intended as an internal video for fellow “Guild members.” At the NY TIMES, one joins a “guild,” not a labor union.
CAUTION: Don’t eat less than 60 minutes before watching. You’ve been warned!
It’s really hard for those of us who live outside the liberal bubble to realize how TOTALLY out of touch progressives are with fiscal reality. It seems like all those interviewed in this video live together in a hermetically sealed room, feeding off each others’ thoughts and opinions.
Everyone who still looks to the NY TIMES as a source of news needs to understand who is WRITING that news. And it shows — both in the paper’s bias and the plummeting readership.
