Jayzus Feltz but would yiz ever shut the fuck up!
All right, Myers is a bit of a pretentious prick but we knew that years ago. He likes a bit of scandal and a drop of controversy but most of all he likes to be noticed. And you have certainly given him the latter.
So he wrote an article which you wouldn’t even have seen until someone pointed it out to you? I would hardly call that a headline announcement? No, it was just an opinion piece in the middle of an extremely bloated newspaper that most people would skip anyway. You even have to pay to see the on-line version.
As for being misogynistic, is this a reference to his mentioning “ladies” in one of his comments? “Sorry, ladies — equal pay has to be earned“? I would call that patronising rather than misogynistic. Get a fucking grip!
As for the Jewish bit – to describe the piece as “horrifying racism” and “anti-Semitic” is a load of bollox. It’s more an example of stereotyping than racism. Calling the Scots “tight fisted” or the Irish as a nation of drunks falls into the same category, and anyone with a modicum of intelligence just ignores such comments, so the impression I get is that you lack such judgement. Your reaction is so extreme as to be off the planet altogether.
Now Myers has lost his job. I don’t know quite why he was fired as presumably his piece had to pass through an editing process so it’s the editors who should take the flak, not the author.
An article that in the ordinary course would have been read by few has now become news, both in print and on the airwaves and has been read by the multitudes. A perfect example of the Striesand Effect?
