No mortal can compete with the NYT Pitchbot, but the ledes emitted by major outlets and the reporters who excrete them never get all the derision they deserve, and there does appear to be a Politico-NYT pipeline.
Besides, the play on words was just sitting there waiting for someone to notice it.
So let’s use … sarcasm to express our annoyance by playing Politico LedeGenerator. I’ll go first, you all do your worst. My inspiration is the July jobs report. I have not in fact looked at Politco’s or the NYT’s reporting on it because who needs that sort of aggravation? Plus, clicks only encourage them.
OK, enough stalling. Deep breath. Here goes.
Ew ew ew –
Critics from both ends of the political spectrum say the July jobs report is more proof that Democrats are incapable of rebuilding the economy. Several experts say the report – which exceeded expectations by a mere 47% – could endanger Biden’s signature Build Back Better initiative, while others speculated on the accuracy of the data.
Ugh, I feel dirty. Time for a shower.
