Media Versus Humor

No humor at the NYT. This dude just made the most glaringly satirical post in history and The New York Times contacted him because they thought it was totally real | Not the Bee

The jokes in here are hilarious. Flight attendants sneezing immediately in disregard of public health, the Jussie Smollett "MAGA country" reference, and the crying child who is super concerned about politics.

Everything necessary to make it an absolutely hilarious joke.

Unless you work for The New York Times, that is.

You can find the NYT's query at this link, from Victoria Kim, together with the answer basically telling her she needs to grow a sense of humor.

Is it trolling if you don't expect anyone to take you seriously?
