Mic is a lowest common-denominator dumbed down news site for millenials. The kind of "millenials" it aims itself at are clearly people who very rarely read books or do anything to properly educate themselves, but who spend much of their lives scrolling through Facebook. This is a news site where they routinely use expression gifs as part of their stories. All their news stories are so incredibly biased it's unbelievable and they rarely report on actual news but just bits and pieces that fit into their agenda. It is utter, utter crap, but if you ever wonder why when you're speaking to a young, so-called leftist millenial and you can't help thinking that they sound like a mindless tosspot, then just check out Mic or Huffington Post and everything will become clear as day.
...or just paranoid?
