Ink Stained Wretches

Nebulous Media

Eliana Johnson and Chris Stirewalt love the news business but they hate a lot of what’s happening to it these days. Using their decades of experience in print, digital and TV news they tell the story behind the stories, always on the lookout for bias, sloppy reporting and, well, just plain wretched journalism. Every week they help you to be a better, smarter news consumer.

  • Not Worthwhile

    The Wretches are “big fans” of journalists who publish factually incorrect stories, so long as those journalists are their friends. That’s behavior they mock in others, but are not self-aware enough to recognize in themselves.
