The Guardian Publishes Article About Being a Millennial
Today, in one of the most unlikely turns of event in journalistic history, British newspaper the Guardian published an article about what it is like to be a ‘millennial’ – someone who reached young adulthood in the early 2000s.
These people, also known as Generation Y, make up over 236% of the Guardian’s readership, and are frequently troubled by problems such as housing, how to date in 2016 and where to get the best gluten free cake.
The success of this article, which received four times more hits than the average Guardian thinkpiece, has led to the newspaper to publish no fewer than ninety more articles about millennials, including what they eat, how they’ve got screwed by the baby boomers, what art they make, why everyone except other Guardian readers seem to hate them, and perhaps most significantly, a ‘how millennial are you?’ quiz.
As a bastion of journalistic integrity, Flipside is disappointed to see this palpable drop in standards.
