Take on the @nytpolitics account

Over the last 24 hours, I can count 16 tweets by the @nytpolitics account and probably another 10 from their standard @nytimes account hyping some article about Cher supporting Hillary Clinton. Not only is this not interesting, it's not really relevant. Who cares why Cher thinks about politics, who cares what any celebrity thinks? But the bigger thing is that if this was US Weekly then maybe this would matter but this is the Gray Lady, not some tabloid

I have long wondered what the obsession is to find out who Kim Kardashian or Ellen or Kanye will vote for but in Cher's case it's even more odd because she isn't a big star anymore.

Literally nobody's vote will be impacted by what Cher thinks and nobody will likely read the article, so get it off my Twitter feed and start reporting on something interesting
