He looks more like a Jehovah’s Witness than a reporter.
The joke would probably work better if he said simply “a mainstream media reporter.”
Your date may have preferred you in your enthusiastic condition.
Today’s background music: “Don’t Bring Me Down” by Queen.
Next, he’ll tell you how those things will affect people of color.
Well, that was useful.
Yeah, there’s a paper in serious need of funny pages.
It’s painful when truth hits you with a rock.
There are no comics in the New York Times.
“There are no birds in last year’s nests…” doesn’t apply here but I do like Cervantes!
Just about ANY news outlet will do that to you. My housemate keeps MSNBC on every waking hour.
“Everyone’s dying and the world is ending.”
How can that possibly be? Joe Biden is president. And Kamala …
Hmm … Oh … yeah … Joe Biden is president and …
It is likely the world will be here for a long spell after humans have passed.
Aw, did Pastis get a poor review from Mother.
gee, hopefully we won’t see him that often…
My local paper to which I subscribe posts many articles from the New York Times which takes down the whole paper in my opinion!
Stay happy pig. Screw everyone else.
Beats Fox News…
Well, he’s not wrong.
Just turn to the NYT funny pages. That’ll cheer you right up.
(Yes, I am aware.)
I think we can save humanity from extinction, but I rather doubt we will.
The news seems to be one sided and only seems interested in using it as a mouthpiece instead of telling the facts.
Ha! Good one, Pastis.
The reporter forgot to say “….that its all the republicans fault”
Everything is click bait, nowadays. Everything. And it doesn’t matter if you’re viewing leftist media or right wing media. It’s all just click bait. And nothing baits a click better than a “sky is falling” headline.
All he has to do is watch the news or social media for three minutes.
Am I the only one getting weary of this negative world tack, Pastis. Please go back to silly puns and the other goofy stuff.
But it’s a great newspaper.
“And both sides do it.”
if its the Times you know its all a lie sad to see a once great paper reduced to the status of the Weekly World News…on the plus side they can report what bat boy has been up to
When PIG sees PIGITA he’ll get excited all over again. LOL
One of the benefits of the “if it bleeds, it leads” mindset.
When Rat said, “You can’t meet her in that state”, my first thought was “Illinois”.
“We’re all going to die” has been the message for years. Population Bomb, Global Cooling, Y2K, Global Warming. Anything to promote fear. And many lap it up.
Hey don’t blame the messenger.
I think Pig’s date would have preferred to see Pig excited, but Rat just had to ruin it.
His date probably wants someone who has his feet on the ground rather than floating in mid air.
Yeah, reality does that. That’s why I keep music handy as a restorative.
This should do it.https://youtu.be/ZvFj-KPik0g
The NYT are really annoying with their subscription urging. I’m sooo close to auto-ban all social media accounts that provide a link to their articles.
Plus, consider this, some human women have a sharp tongue, some pig ladies have a sharp corkscrew tail.
I will say this for the NYT and WaPo. I’ve known them to print retractions, admit they were wrong, and apologize for errors or misinformation. I’ve never seen that happen in certain other publications and media outlets. I’ll call no names as that just upsets people.
The NYT may bring you down, but a Fox News commentator would leave you in an angry state 24/7.
Lately CNN on line is doing the same thing. Bummer…
It’s announced the world will end tomorrow because of a giant meteor/comet……………..
NY Post headline: “AAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHH!”
NY Daily News headline: “YEEEEEEEKKKK!!!”
NY Times: “WORLD TO END TOMORROW; WOMEN, MINORITIES, CHILDREN TO SUFFER THE MOST: How Trump Is To Blame; Biden Proclaims $10 Trillion Program To Stop Meteor and Feed Aliens; COVID-19 Cases and Deaths Still On Increase Thanks To Republicans……………..”
Mr. Pastis: You’re really stirring things up lately! But I agree – the NYT needs improvement. Like most newspapers, it only appeals to half the people in the USA. Too bad they can’t just report the news without political and ideological bias and without leaving out things that might cast aspersions on their party of choice ( And yes, both sides do it).
Don’t listen to a New York Times reporter, Pig! If you do, you’re always doomed….
You need to listen to John Mulaney describe the New York Times, that’s some funny stuff right there, and probably true…
Nah. Mainstream media reporters spend their time ignoring uncle Joe’s screwups
