We're laughing in an echo chamber: it's time to rethink satire
"While enthusiasts of satire may celebrate, this groundswell is not necessarily a good thing.

Freelancers are precarious. When should they push back?
"At a certain level, only journalists can really be watchdogs for other journalists. An ordinary reader might not pick up on inaccuracies or problems with tone and angle. This may well be why Twitter is full of these sorts of rejoinders. Thousands of journalists picking apart thousands of stories. Some pushing back, others staying silent. Editors hanging in the background, apparently, deciding whether to learn from the criticism or whether to attack."
