Grist has lost the plot, literally
This is so truly unbelievable that I am totally aghast.
Until today I considered grist a bastion of clear and erudite thinking around the freecycling world. Grist has been so much at the forefront of debate showing the problems endemic in The Freecycle Network that today, to see them providing sanitised “how good they are” airing not only on the website but also on TV just leaves me totally and utterly stunned.
This article is about as bad as it gets on its own. However it gets worse, much worse. The article refers back to their very first arcticle on TFN, completely omitting all the controversial articles that surround TFN – all of which are on Grist – in the middle. It is as if Grist wants to completely rewrite history.
Underpinning this is Grist’s tag line which states, “a beacon in the smog.” Sorry Grist, you have a new tag line “We have totally lost the plot – literally.”
