Confessions of COMM 200

The worst article I have ever read

Hii Everyone,

Vanity Fair published a really bad article on Dubai this week. It’s not bad because it trash talks my hometown (tear) but because I think it goes against everything Prof. Crowe has taught us! The journalist wrote critically from one perspective, which is fine considering it’s an editorial but everything from the structure, attribution and constant declaration of exaggerated, illegitimate and fictitious facts. The author was not only racist and rude but also VERY prejudice.

Enjoy!

  1. Pet peeve: “prejudice” isn’t an adjective. The article is prejudiced.

    But beyond my grammar nitpicking, I’m really puzzled why this guy bothered to write this piece. Even if the things he alludes to are true–the rich elite in Dubai bought what they couldn’t afford and wound up with a gaudy, cultureless city–he never tells us why it’s relevant. The article turns into a long list of things the author doesn’t like about Dubai. Good for him. It doesn’t deserve to get published, though.
