I guess Donald Trump didn't take very kindly when told to "f*ck off" by a sports blog yesterday.
.@deadspin guys are total losers—they had their story stolen right from under their bad complexions—other media capitalized!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 18, 2013
Dummies @deadspin had their big payday taken from them by others in the media.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 18, 2013
Are you kidding me, Donald? Could you be anymore of an attention whore? Deadspin's received like a billion-plus pageviews by breaking the Te'o story. For those of us who work online for independent publishers, I'd call it a triumphant moment for online journalism. Deadspin smeared a carton of eggs in the mainstream media's face over sloppy, lazy journalistic standards when it comes to reporting sappy sports hero-worship storylines, i.e. Manti Teo's "heartbreaking" story about his fake dead girlfriend. There's nothing else to be said about it and most other people on Twitter agree.
Trolls gonna troll. Even The Donald:
In unrelated Trump Troll news, he hung out with Katherine Webb yesterday. Bummer she's not into the blogosphere yet. Embrace the future, Katherine!
