This Week in Fuck Mike Allen

Seriously, what a massive asshole:

As others have noted, Allen got Lowery’s age and the spelling of his name wrong. So that’s two factual mistakes in one paragraph. Hire him to speak to your journalism students, universities of America! 

The fuck is he trying to say? “23-year-old?” First of all, that Wesley Lowery is that young pisses me off too, because he’s SO FUCKING GOOD. If you are not following him on Ferguson you need to start doing it now. Second of all, I don’t care if he just got his driver’s license. Anybody who goes that hard on a story gets respect.

Unless, of course, you are the biggest fuckstick in American journalism, and you’re just mad that somebody stole your spotlight by doing real work.

  1. Bartender, a double Prestone, and see what the pundits in the back will have, as Charlie Pierce would say.

  2. Mike Allen is not a journalist. Once upon a time, even Allen understood this.
