Don’t Cheer About Reporters Losing Their Jobs

About 1000 reporters across the United States lost their jobs yesterday. Several of them have written not just critically of me, but have written willfully malicious things about me and friends of mine. I see a lot of conservatives gleeful about the collapse of BuzzFeed, Huffington Post, etc.

But fundamentally, people losing their jobs is bad. It is a part of the economy, but it is not pleasant. I have plenty of criticism and distrust of the media, but even if the individuals losing their jobs are our political opponents or you see them as enemies, you should not hate them or enjoy seeing them lose their jobs.

Love your enemies and pray for them. Don’t expect it in return. Don’t expect that they’ll suddenly be nice to you or show you grace. They might even be more spiteful and petty. But don’t succumb to a lack of grace or loss of Christian virtue. Your obligation to love your enemies does not stop once you walk out of church.
