Skip to comments.Journos Meltdown After Being Told 'Learn To Code' In Wake Of Mass Layoffs At HuffPo, Buzzfeed

After news came out about mass layoffs at HuffPost, Buzzfeed and Gannett -- in the midst of the media's relentless smear-job against the Covington Catholic students -- right-wing Twitter had a field day.
Tons of leftist journalists announced they were laid off on Twitter and the top meme was telling them to "learn to code" -- which is the same advice the media gave middle Americans whose jobs are being taken in traditional industries.
Talia Levin, who was hired by Media Matters last year after being fired by the New Yorker for smearing an ICE agent as a Nazi because she thought a tattoo he had looked like an iron cross, got quite triggered:
Chloe Angyal, best known for penning the inflammatory "Goy Bye!" Huffington Post headline after Steve Bannon was ousted from the White House, was also laid off.
Yes, she has a *literal* PhD in Romantic Comedies.
The editor-in-chief of Jalopnik (which is now owned by the far-left Gizmodo Media Group) was also "trigged":
Smearing a bunch of children and trying to ruin their lives for smiling is "respectable journalism" -- but making fun of journalists for losing their jobs is just a step too far!

TO CLARA: People do. That's why you're out of a job...................
I cant imagine that a qualified long or short form culture/gender/politics reporter wont land on her feet. She can probably write her own ticket
Please don’t learn to code. Your manual ability to screw things ups with illogical thinking and poor judgement should NOT be automated!
Bless their hearts.
Learn to Code?? Screw that, learn to Pour Coffee, Starbucks is always hiring.
This is the first time I actually regret that I don’t have a twitter account. I don’t regret it enough to actually get a twitter account, but I would dearly love to pee on the graves of these journalists careers, while the journalists watch me do it.
Learn to code!!! I love it. Karma can be sweet.
LOVED the response to the “culture/gender” reporter...
Learn to code, indeed... :^)
COBOL and FORTRAN skills will
never be out of date!
The feel good post of the day. Thanks!
I went from being a Poetry major to a programmer. Lean to code, bidjes.
“This compiler is triggering me. It keeps saying my code has an error in it and then it man-splains it to me. My feelings are valid too. This compiler is hurtful to women and minorities.”
What a great day in the aftermath of the Covington debacle.
One of the most FUN threads I’ve read in years!! Oh, those poor victims. I feel for them as much (less, actually) as I do for the temporarily furloughed fed workers who never gave a damn as their work enforcing nonsense regs shut down entire towns and industries in “flyover country.”
I guess reporting on gender politics is a dead end job, now.
It’s the Trump effect!
Hopefully these members of the media learn one thing fast.That is you only have a job as long as theres someone who will purchase your product.
With the lies and disinformation the media has been pumping out to support the Rats I expect a lot more terminations and bankruptcys of these media organizations.
Try to imagine ANY of these kids having to do real journalism.
“...Learn to Code?? Screw that, learn to Pour Coffee, Starbucks is always hiring...”
Or they can always try practicing “You Want French Fries with that?”
Schadenfreude? Youbetchadupa!!!!! :^)
