The tone and delivery of most YouTube essayists is sooooooooooooo didactic it's infuriating

Why am I thinking about this stuff so much? Well,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

So I loved Taylor Swift's Miss Americana documentary, but I want to apologise for an article I wrote that appears in the film, and give context for its headline, which I did not write.
In July 2016, I wrote a piece for Noisey/VICE Australia about the Kim/Kanye/Taylor feud, in the wake of Kim leaking their "Famous" phone call on Snapchat. The popular opinion at the time was that Kim had "exposed" Taylor - but I didn't think Taylor had lied.
