The Fluffington Post Categorically Denies Accusations of Lackluster Meme Journalism
Earlier today, The Fluffington Post’s journalistic standards were called into question by Michael Nunez of the International Business Times.  In his article, Nunez accused our publication of failing to cover “breading,” a new Internet meme that features adorable animals made to wear slices (and in some instances, entire loaves) of bread on their faces.
Nunez writes:
“The Fluffington Post, the world leader in fluffy animal news, has failed to report on the trend, instead choosing to cover photos of dogs wearing goggles. The news decision by The Fluffington Post marks a rare occasion in which the media outlet has opted for ‘cool’ over ‘cute.’ “
We would like to address these concerns, and assure you — our loyal readers — that The Fluffington Post did not falter in its mission to deliver the most important and relevant fluffy animal news of the day. Rather, after lengthy editorial discussions (which involved pizza, frequent Xbox breaks and yes, some tears), we decided that posting photos of animals in embarrassing situations is ultimately unethical, and that the reputation of these noble creatures is more important than profiting from the news of this cultural atrocity.
Just look at this example of breading to see what we mean:

Terrible. Or this one:

It’s heartbreaking, we know. How dare you, Michael Nunez. How dare you, sir.
In summary, it is the ethical decision of this publication to never publish pictures of animals in uncomfortable or embarrassing situations for the purposes of financial gain.
