    What % of GoTitans members will understand this is satire? I'm gonna say under 10%.

    Misspelled words, run on sentences, no subject-predicate agreement...

    Why would you want to be a journalist if you can't master fifth grade grammar skills?

    EDIT:

    Creepy ass picture too.

    I doubt the writer at KSK qualifies as a journalist.

    It is satire. It is hilarious.


    :D:D:D


    Edit: the grammar is brutal. Like bad. Embarrassingly 520 bad

    Yeah... You can't really write satire if you are too dumb to put together a sentence. Because then it is just self-inflicted irony.

    When I took a journalism class in college - late 90s - we were told that the recommended writing level is around 8th grade, so your average readers can understand it.

    That was nearly 20 years ago... God knows what it is now. Depressing...

    I'm hoping that is what he was going for.

    Give 520 a break. English is his second language. (maybe not, I dunno.)

    This is bad for an 8th grader

    My 10% guess is looking way too high...

    I said that was nearly 20 years ago... probably lower now.

    Probably are taught to write at a 5th grade level to reach more 'Muricans.
