Hanging On To Victimhood: Higher Education and the Gender Card
The Left is incredibly bipolar when it comes to discussing gender. They are fixated on it, obviously, but the moment you mention it, they recoil in horror and wonder aloud why you are so obsessed with the subject. It must be very exhausting for them. On Democratic debate day, October 13th, chart-loving Vox published a chart-filled article entitled “For the first time ever, more American women | Read More »
.@Voxdotcom shows why no one trusts the media
You’ve read this opening paragraph before. I’m going to do this for a while so that maybe the lesson sinks in. Earlier in the week, the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza was mewling about a Gallup poll that showed virtually no one in the public trusted the media. That same day it was revealed that CBS News had employed a Clinton operative had helped shape CBS News’s | Read More »
Selective, Biased, Intentional Editing That Didn’t Change The Truth One Tiny, Fractional, Slight Little Bit
Twelve hours. That’s how much footage is currently available online from the Center for Medical Progress in their comprehensive undercover exposé of potentially criminal and certainly despicable practices taking place at the group beloved by liberals and Donald Trump alike: Planned Parenthood. Twelve. Hours. It is half a day’s worth of horror and misery and depression and appalling behavior. Over 720 minutes of callousness, dead | Read More »
Apple, Inc. Still Promoting Left-Wing Propaganda With Its News App
I mentioned last week that Apple’s new News app on iOS 9.0 is promoting a bunch of leftwing sources. I refused to subscribe to any of them. Nonetheless, this morning I opened the News app and was confronted with the top story. It was from Vox, the leftwing playground that “explains” the news to make liberals feel secure. I never subscribed to Vox and beyond | Read More »
Vox Pundit: American Revolution Was Bad, Abolish Senate & Constitution
Alas, writing for Vox while claiming to be a “wonk” or pundit doesn’t mean you actually contribute meaningful and worthwhile things to the public discussion. Dylan Matthews is a self-absorbed blogger who, fortunately, has all the wisdom the Founding Fathers lacked and has studied the issues of history and constitutional government so deeply and broadly that he can making sweeping proclamations about the folly of | Read More »
Voxsplaining the Pope
I’m a Catholic and have to admit that I’m not sending Pope Francis a Christmas card. I think he’s suffering from the effects of going from, to mix metaphors, a big fish in a small pond (Argentina? Really?) to a little meatball in a big plate of spaghetti. His statements are confusing the faithful and encouraging the enemies of faith, like, for instance, what your | Read More »
Vox’s Definition Problem (And Others)
Vox.com has a problem. They’re not very good at their job, for one, but that’s not the focus of this particular post. Instead, let’s look at Vox’s mission and see if they’ve come anywhere close. “Vox is a general interest news site for the 21st century. Our mission is simple: Explain the news.” This mission is noble enough, I suppose, if you did not look | Read More »
Vox Plays Heads-I-Win, Tails-You-Lose with Immigration
Over at Vox, Ezra Klein has set forth some… interesting theories of how Presidential authority works in the face of Congressional inaction: Douthat may, depending on the details of the policy, be right that Obama intends to push presidential authority beyond where it should properly go. But he skips too lightly over the role congressional dysfunction plays in empowering the executive branch. “Incompetence and gridlock are significant problems, | Read More »
More on the Great Vox Gaza Bridge Pile-On.
Vox thought there was a bridge from the West Bank to Gaza. This becomes more alarming, the more you think about it.

@Voxdotcom… has no idea of what Japanese popular culture is like, does it?
Does Jeff Bezos ever destroy about $10M or so and send the remains to Ezra Klein? I would.

Matthew Yglesias is Juice Vox Media’s Village Idiot and Liar-in-Chief
Well, now we know why the Washington Post did not want to invest in Ezra Klein’s “explanatory journalism” nonsense. Turns out it is just a left-wing propaganda tool trying to spin instead of explain. Let us turn our attention to Matthew Yglesias, the Executive Editor of Ezra Klein’s new site. As my friend Pejman Yousefzadeh has well documented, Yglesias is just not that bright. He | Read More »
