Often, it’s unnerving ideas like “all things STUPID about the news” that make the opposition question their moral standards, grapple with their fears, supplicate authorities and regulatory bodies for help, and/or act on their anger in surprisingly outlandish ways. They are ideas destined to become icons of their time.
For heads over the news industry, perhaps the launch and unorthodox workings of “all things STUPID about the news” create that kind of anxiety mentioned above in that no private or public company has ever endeavored to censure the industry with such vigor and on such a vast scale. Naturally, the first defense toward keeping the idea grounded would be to marginalize it and its founder. Secondly, through partnerships, working relationships, and affecting industry rapport, collaborate and mobilize resources to stifle any access to capital the idea may garner, and thirdly, enlist the assistance of the government wherever it can intervene and facilitate the idea’s failure.
