Fearless Girl has gotten a little cocky since she stood up to the Wall Street bull, that symbol of financial optimism and prosperity. So brash in fact that she’s graduated from turning this bull into a steer and now takes her intimidation on the road. Her search for other icons that she can threaten with her icy stare and bravado is taking her on a world-wide excursion. We’ve captured the best moments in this photo essay as FG traveled the globe.
The intensity level of investigative journalism has just hit a new high, well at least compared to the previous eight years. Dreams of Watergate-like fame have returned for brave journalists across the country. They don’t need their own version of Deep Throat, although it would appear that the Trump administration is riddled with sources but without cool code names, just a quick trigger on their smart phones.
A great example is the recent energetic reporter who, gasp, caught Rick Perry reading the Drudge Report. No doubt the reporter snapped away hoping that he’d catch Secretary Perry pulling up a linked copy of Mein Kampf but apparently Drudge was the best, er worst, that it got. See for yourself, below.
The Drudge headline is a little blurry, likely due to the excited shaking as the reporter’s trembling hands held his phone. It actually reads “Great Again: +235,000.” Let’s give Perry a little credit though, he likely knew that surreptitiously browsing Drudge was the best way for positive news on job growth to get into the mainstream media’s coverage.
It’s too bad this hard hitting type of journalism is just now becoming an imposing force, otherwise perhaps a few these would have been reported.
