From living in D.C., I can tell you that most of the city’s press corps come from blue-blood families who either paid for little Johnny’s reporter gig or subsidized their fancy apartment (and bar tab) until they got on a payroll. If you read their Twitter feeds, their attitudes are supercilious and entitled. They make up scandals and slant coverage, then party hardy with their colleagues over $12 cocktails. All the while, these Acela Corridor whores look down upon the rest of the country as provincial slobs who deserve nothing but low-wage drudgery.
I cannot emphasize this enough: Fuck these folks.
