Okay I’m Bill Simmons and want to launch a website. Do I:
Alex Wolcott
185

Okay…I’m a conservative person with a functioning brain and want to read something on the internet. Do I:

A) Read and comment on article written by Obama’s former speech writer even thought I know I’ll disagree with it and call it hackery even though it references plenty of polls and doesn't actually endorse the views of millenials (although he clearly agrees with them); or

B) Find any number of the literally millions of articles I will likely agree with and find interesting somewhere else on the internet.

Option B would seem to be more rational and much more likely to result in a happy, fulfilling life.

Thus, if not being a jerk is in any way part of the equation, perhaps stop reading things you don’t like reading. Bill has had far more success than I can even dream of, so he should pursue his vision for The Ringer and the money will likely follow.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
