I refuse to read the various pieces about Lauren Duca or Caroline Calloway because white women being mediocre is not worthy of this much coverage.


As a journalist it baffles me that my colleagues seem to think that these are stories that rise to the level of "newsworthy." If someone pitched them a story from a field that isn't media that basically went "hey, this woman was supposed to be really great, turns out she's just kind of average," they'd be like "okay who cares." But because these women are vaguely their competitors and peers it's worth 10,000 words?

This is the kind of shit that I would once Tweet and then immediately delete because people would start getting pissy in my mentions!
