Do journalism schools teach writing anymore?

<Facepalm>

Are you serious?

Here's a recent Facebook headline from Bill Harris' part-time lover:

"Amazing.. A stranger did something with their stimulus check that may put tears in your eyes."

First, that sentence is a syntax (look it up) and grammatical nightmare, but it's illogical too.

Tears are already in your eyes. Nothing "put tears in your eyes."

You need a hobby. If that’s the worse offense you’ve seen in social media, you’re not looking hard enough. Stop being a stalker.
Critiquing bad writing is my hobby.

Producers, executive producers, and managing editors used to do it.

I hold “journalists” to a higher writing standard than non-journalists.

Journalists are supposed to be specialized in writing well, and when they suck at it, I point it out.

Imagine anyone else saying they are a specialist and a professional at something and then sucking at it.

It seems the only one you want to criticize is a retired journalist. If you really wanted to criticize journalist writing/spelling/grammar, there’s a lot out there to focus on. However you’re an obsessed stalker/former coworker of Bill’s...
I doubt Bill wrote that Facebook headline.
