Ten Lazy Journalism Standards

1. Claiming that Colleen Rooney was ever on the cover of Vogue
2. Men’s fashion magazines quoting Rufus Wainwright
3. Backwards writing sentences Yoda a bit like
4. Using “weapons of mass destruction” puns. Still
5. Starting articles with the words “Is it just me…” (short answer: yes)
6. Inventing new words to describe a trend you’ve cobbled together from three coincidental cases
7. Liberal interpretation of the words “exclusive” and “definitive”
8. Exclamation marks used in inverse proportion to points of interest
9. Never using an object or subject when an extra adjective will do
10. “Hilarious” picture captions that begin “XX was beginning to regret…”
