Around 10+ years ago when Pitchfork was still worth checking out, I remember them playing an April Fools joke. On April 1st they featured reviews by Avril Lavigne and others of that sort. They stated they had sold out to a corporation and to stick around and check it out. Fast forward to November 13th, 2017 and today’s feature review is the new Taylor Swift album. They even give a separate article about her upcoming tour! I’m not here to bash Taylor Swift or anyone who likes her, but Pitchfork has become the embodiment of an April Fools joke. Pathetic.
