I dug through the original tweets to see if this was meant ironically but apparently no. It seems that movie star's son turned Twitter celebrity really does feel that lack of two-day delivery to Sun Valley represents societal failure.

Another reminder that people who complain about being canceled really mean they're being criticized, having their points questioned, or just not being adequately praised.

I realize that the observation itself is fairly obvious, but something about the conciseness of this list brought home just how much this describes the guiding principles of conservative media.

Even more than the LA Times Russ Mitchell, E. W. Niedermeyer is the essential journalist on the Tesla beat.
The persistence of the "tech startup disruptors vs adapting legacy dinosaurs" narrative in EVs/AVs/mobility is a tribute to the enduring power of narrative, even in the total absence of supporting facts— E.W. Niedermeyer (@Tweetermeyer) October 18, 2021
Just one lesson that I took to heart at the very start of my career, documenting/analyzing Detroit's ultimate downfall in 2008, was that a captured media enables cultural rot and decline. A tough, confrontational media fosters accountability and improvement.— E.W. Niedermeyer (@Tweetermeyer) October 14, 2021

This one is especially important.
This thread hits so hard. Where's the DARPA Challenge/@NHTSA Inclusive Design Challenge for next-gen wheelchair designs?

An underrated consequence of the commercial and military expansion of image recognition is how it has hit a ceiling on accuracy. Companies continue to try to boil the ocean with increasing volumes of image processing in pursuit of now marginal returns on a faulty technology.— Scream Queen (@KateRoseBee) October 12, 2021
"How hated is Ted Cruz?" has become one of the great standbys of American political humor.
Everything that Ted Cruz says and does — absolutely everything — makes me think of Al Franken’s line: “Here's the thing you have to understand about Ted Cruz. I like Ted Cruz more than most of my other colleagues like Ted Cruz.— Clyde Haberman (@ClydeHaberman) October 18, 2021
“And I hate Ted Cruz.” https://t.co/nuAWLBbcll
What's going on with the far right and the Catholic Church could well be the most interesting story in politics.
If you saw any Catholics freaking out about Pope Francis being on a roll yesterday, this is what they were referring to. pic.twitter.com/ufIVlpGNTq— Kaya Oakes (@kayaoakes) October 17, 2021
There is nothing in any Catholic's faith that exempts them from taking a vaccine. There is nothing in the gospels. There is nothing in the New Testament anywhere. There is nothing in canon law. There is nothing from the Church Fathers, and no pronouncements from previous popes. https://t.co/x9hXxm79Fd— Charles P. Pierce (@CharlesPPierce) October 20, 2021

A lot of people call this wage growth, but that's not important right now.
Goldman Sachs CEO getting multiple millions in bonuses is good for the economy, but working people getting a living wage is not. Hmmmm https://t.co/PhEebTeg7e— Norman Ornstein (@NormOrnstein) October 16, 2021
Following the links in the first paragraph, the "critics" seem to be Trump and Fox News. Though they did single out conservative media, the authors probably should have mentioned that the NBC article cited ("'Not by accident': False 'thug' narratives have long been used to discredit civil rights movements") makes almost exactly the same point as the MC article, giving much of the WP piece a bit of a dog-bites-man vibe. The important story here (briefly mentioned) is how mainstream media sensationalism and conservative media disinformation. If you're interested, here are my real time notes.
Critics claim #BLM protests were more violent than 1960s civil rights ones. "Our research finds that on every measure available, last year’s BLM protests were more peaceful and less confrontational," John D.
