Cognitive Dissonance

"Democracy! Bah! When I hear that I reach for my feather boa!" - Allen Ginsberg

USA Today, that bastion of hard-hitting investigative journalism typically found outside your hotel room door, has reached a new apex by covering some drunken twit’s tweet as newsworthy. However, that’s not the true glory of this blurb.
The second sentence sets a new high for lows in national media: “That’s like in the coma and death range levels of ethanol in her blood.” Read it out loud. It’s the dreaded “like” filler appearing IN WRITING. Really?
What’s next? I predict headlines reading “OMG MILEY UR SO CRAY!”
