Boasting forty-seven Pulitzer prizes and a dark green smiley-face from Journalist Excellence Worldwide, The Washington Post has long been one of America’s most reputable news outlets. But a brave young #Resistance vlogger by the name of Mx. Obvious has uncovered a dastardly right-wing plot to undermine the credibility of the Post’s top-notch journalists and cause our democracy to die in darkness.
The Washington Post logo, it seems, is a symbol of white supremacy.
This is a serious threat to our democracy. Yes, the logo must absolutely be changed. Preferably to a design that recognizes the daily struggles faced by journalists of color in Trump’s America, but which also gives nod to the historical oppression of the JLGBTQIAP+ community as a whole.
We reached out to Journalist Excellence Worldwide founder Dustin Levitt for comment, but he was so overcome by feelings of betrayal that he was initially unable to form a coherent response. After taking a few hours to meet with the company crisis counselor, Mx. Levitt had this to say:
You know, I figured we could trust a newspaper with direct ties to Amazon and the CIA. Guess I was wrong! Who had “WP” first? Well, Washington Post was founded in 1877, and white supremacy was around a lot longer than that, pal. So you tell me if this was an accident or not.
