Why I hate columnistsDecember 19, 2009
OK, the headline is a bit strong. I dislike two columnists, both from the Star-Telegram. Jennifer Floyd Engel and Randy Galloway are hacks of the highest order.
So, I finish the last post, and then go to Google Reader to view the latest on the game. I see the FWST’s staff picks .
To save you from having to click, Galloway calls the Saints 100-0 and JFE has it 49-0. I’m sure at one point in their careers, both desired to seek out topics, become informed and then select a point of view. Those days are long gone. I termed what Galloway does as madlibs columns where he simply takes what a local team does, and replace that into the same hackneyed garbage comparisons. Add in a few disparaging nicknames, and voila, lucrative career.
They simply desire raising your ire, and I’ve let them get me once again. Please do yourself a favor, and when you see either of their by-lines…. skip it.
