Media’s Grim Addiction to Perseverance Porn | FAIR

LABSN Editor’s Note: I thought this take on how a news item is reported was very important. FAIR has a reputation for making news reporters think about what they write from a different point of view.

These stories are typically shared for the purposes of poor-shaming, typically under the guise of inspirational life advice. A healthy press would take these anecdotes of “can do” spirit and ask bigger questions, like why are these people forced into such absurd hardship?
