If you don't know what "City Pages" is, don't worry. It's the pre-internet "what's going on in Minneapolis" weekly that you would consult to see...well..what was going on in Minneapolis every week in the early 90's. Of course, they wouldn't just leave it at that. That would be providing a genuine service to society with no pain nor cost nor sermoning. So they attracted a bunch of wanna be, journalistic failures who write (wait wait for it!!!!) LEFTIST (amazing, I know) skewed "articles" so they could feel like they're achieving something.
Never mind the platform was merely advertising. And never mind the only people who read City Pages for the articles are the same Minneapolitan dippy hippy dipshits who fashion themselves intellectuals. No, "City Pages" keeps going on like a zombie because hipsters in our "Uptown" need to read something when waiting for their organic coffee.
So when they came out with an article about Trump visiting Minneapolis, it was, as predicted, soaked with "sarc/snark/talk to the hand/oh snap" level writing. But it was also curiously closing the comments section.
Of course, this is what happens when old, obsolete, outdated, baby boomer media that is used to preaching to the choir comes full head onto the internet which is much more democratic and representative of the people. I guarantee you City Pages was used to its cozy echo chamber of spoiled brat trust funder baby readership, but when it made it into the real world via teh interwebz, the comments were just too "triggering" for its editorial staff to handle. And since we wouldn't want to upset these precious liberal arts majoring failures, the comments section was closed, and their little imaginary journalistic fiefdom was maintained.
Anyway, this is the only time I'll write about the "City Pages" because like the Star Tribune, for 20 years I had to tolerate their leftist slop as it was the only thing available. But now, thanks to the interwebz, City Pages is going down in history for what it truly was:
An advertising platform for bars, clubs, and museums to support the otherwise unsupportable and never-demanded journalistic hobbies of talentless, leftist hacks.
