For the 50th anniversary of one of the greatest achievements in the history of the world, the Apollo 11 mission, the mass media seem to be doing everything they can to portray American power in as negative a light as possible. To "celebrate" the event, the Washington Post told its readers that "the culture that brought men to the moon was intense, funny, family-unfriendly, and mostly white and masculine." The New York Times also presented the "giant leap for humanity" from the perspective of race and gender, but also managed to portray the oppressive Communist Soviet Union as the true "winner" of the space race, the first man on the moon, but the Soviet Union sent the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit ̵

"
" In archive photos and footage of Apollo 11, it is a "Where is Waldo?" practice to be a woman or a person of color Heller notes, adding, "The space program envisioned the future, but the community of sleek hairstyles, shaved chin skins, white shirts (with company signage on their pockets) and printing slacks, led by many veterans of World War II, seemed to be decades away from the prevailing culture, which was shaggy, angry and sometimes stoned. "
How The Daily Wire Beginning d This week, Post's work online met with an overwhelming response. "It would not be a celebration of American ingenuity if the Washington Post did not find a way to shit everything," wrote Twitchy in his coverage of the rebound. Some examples of answers:
"Toxic masculinity!" wrote a critic. "Damn heroes," added another. "Just like the WaPo newsroom at the time," noted another. "Is that satire?" asked a man. "Did you look at the moon, it looks white, bad white, moon bad," mocked another. "What's wrong with you?" Josh Hammer of The Daily Wire asked.
