They were down on Elisabeth and Rodger, or at least as down as you can be on people that likable. Examples: consistently making fun of Elisabeth’s name spelling (calling her Elisabeth-with-an-s), making fun of her emotional nature, making fun of her when she cries on camera calling her mom her hero, comparing Rodger’s sacrifice to Terminator 2, making fun of the name “outback daddy”, etc. They like them, just because they’re likable people. But even so, they made fun of them, because they were just too cynical. And that’s what I didn’t like about Salon.com.
