Washington Post Writer On Baltimore: 'I Wouldn’t Want to Live There.'
The Travel article's writer commits some serious sins before critiquing Charm City.
Writer Marc Fisher may not find Baltimore so welcoming after his most recent article in The Washington Post.
In his piece about Baltimore, which another publication labeled condescending, Fisher’s sins are many, but here are few of his most egregious:
He admits to being a Yankees fans and gloats about "taking over Camden Yards" with other bandwagon jumpers—whoops, I’m sorry— Yankees fans when his team visits.
Fisher then takes a dig at Baltimore by comparing it to another city with which the town shares a heated football rivalry: "I have about as much interest in news from the next big city up the Northeast Corridor as I do in, say, Pittsburgh."
The writer also uses his piece to make a plethora of snide asides such as: "Harbor East features generic upscale architecture, swanky shops (something Baltimore hasn’t been associated with in, oh, half a century or so)," or "when the Travel editors suggested that I check in on our neighbor to the northeast, I admit to a certain grumpiness."
