This is what put me over the edge: "Tammy Baldwin opposes Donald Trump's SCOTUS pick, sparks Twitter war with Scott Walker."
If mainstream journalism thinks it's better than social media, it should go out and find real-world events to describe and explain. I can read social media for myself.
And I'm especially sick of the ridiculous hyperbole like "war."
If you want mainstream prestige, talk about what is important and use grownup language. Don't effuse like a teenager about the nonevent that somebody said something on-line and then somebody else retorted.
