Last night on Real Time with Bill Maher, the HBO host has some words for Millennials, particularly the ones that work in the newsroom of the Washington Post.

During his New Rule segment of the show, Maher gave a play-by-play on the recent Twitter battle between WaPo reporter Felicia Sonmez and some of her male colleagues that eventually resulted in Sonmez being fired and another reporter put on a month’s leave without pay.

Maher was stunned that this all started from a retweet of a joke about the opposite sex being crazy, something men and women have been doing to each other for centuries. “No one but the perpetually offended thinks it means anything more than that the sexes get frustrated over how differently we each see the world,” he insisted.

Maher then praised WaPo’s coverage of the Watergate scandal in the 1970’s. “I have to wonder how the Post’s newsroom of today would handle that. All this time blubber-tweeting.
