Cultural Differences

In Ukraine, when somebody publishes a puff piece on a politician like the recent WashPo profile of Stacey Abrams, everybody knows it was paid for with a bribe and has an approximate idea of how much the journalist charged for it. (Of course, in Ukraine it would be better written and less open to mockery).

I always thought it was really sad. But now I know that it’s a lot sadder when people write and read this kind of article completely seriously.
