The coddling of the American journalist

From Freddy Gray at The American Spectator:

We are used to reading about snowflakes on university campuses — so much so that it has become a right-wing cliché. But the snowflakes aren’t melting as they get older and wiser. They now have jobs in publishing and media and are marching through the institutions they work for. They are trying to create media safe spaces — places where their sensibilities cannot be harmed — and they are becoming more tactical in the ways they silence the voices they don’t like. What we are seeing with the Buruma story, in other words, is the coddling of American journalism. More.

Reality check: Their publications are as witty as a pile of bricks and they deserve it. And as long as no one is forced to read them, who cares?
