    2014’s Top 10 News Stories

    These are the ten biggest, most important news stories of 2014, according to me. Number 10, the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

If ever the news goes to Twitter, it means some editor somewhere couldn’t be fucked to do his job that day – it’s lazy journalism.
