Salon Headline of the Day
Ah, where to even begin.
Maybe with the utter lack of an appreciation for the irony of calling something "hacky" literally just before writing the word "brogramming."
Or with the fact that the article somehow manages to crowbar George Zimmerman into a "review" of two TV shows.
Or with its completely predictable game of Salon Buzzword Mad Libs, which includes "white privilege," "racial and gender identity," "homophobia," "ethnic and age diversity" and a new one for the ages: "Brogramming fail."
Or with its ability to perform logical gymnastics to completely discount a factor which disproves its central thesis -- namely that Suits features Gina Torres, a strong black woman if ever there was one, in a position of incredible power -- simply because it disproves its central thesis.
Or with the inexplicable notion that watching Suits and Major Crimes is somehow a zero-sum game.
Or with the fact that, as usual, it's just a horribly written, pissy little polemic masquerading as a legitimate piece of journalism.
