Writes Skip OIiva:

In the last week, I’ve seen the word “narcissism” used dozens of times by the mainstream press to describe a 25-year-old African-American male who worked his way out of poverty to earn millions of dollars entertaining people with his basketball skills. Apparently, his transgression was refusing to honor the collectivist whims of the press to remain in his depressed “hometown” by deciding to join two of his close friends in a better part of the country.

Funny how the press rarely describes politicians who steal, plunder, and pillage as “narcissists.” And the greatest narcissists of all — the press themselves — wonder why their industry is in decline.
