Just how laughably pathetic do the leftwing Democrats who loudly introduced a bill to abolish ICE appear after they now have to backtrack in embarrassment to oppose it since Republicans agreed to bring it to the floor of the House for a vote? So pathetic that even the leftist Vox is mocking the Democrats for putting themselves in such a bind as to look completely foolish.
Is it too much to ask that Hollywood types know what they’re talking about before the express their opinions?
On CNN's Reliable Sources on Sunday, Vox.com's Ezra Klein lamented the attention President Donald Trump continues to receive, whining that his rallies and tweets are crowding out "other important issues." Klein wants the establishment press and cable news — by that, he clearly means everyone but Fox — to pay less attention to Trump, even though he effectively admitted that doing so would cause hits to ratings and online traffic (Earth to Ezra: You're in charge of a business). Fox, which is already crushing its rivals, would probably love it if the rest of the press were to follow Klein's suggestion.
In an attempt to catch conservatives flat-footed in hypocrisy, liberal outlets ended up putting their own foot in their mouth. Addressing the Sarah Huckabee Sanders vs.the Red Hen restaurant incident, liberal media outlets such as The New York Daily News, Vox, and ThinkProgress accused conservatives of a double standard.
A new book by Stephen Greenblatt makes rather clumsy comparisons between William Shakespeare's tyrants in his plays and Donald Trump. Reviewers at the Los Angeles Times and Vox are fans.
The idea promoted among the left that President Donald Trump is some sort of fascist is nothing new and the latest example of this comes from Vox co-founder Ezra Klein on May 28 in which he compares Trump to to fictional fascist president Charles Lindbergh in the late novelist Philip Roth's novel The Plot Against America:
Vox's senior corresponent is suffering from a horrible fear. He worries about Trump being successful with his North Korea policy to the extent that he is now suffering from a mental meltdown.
The House Judiciary Committee recently held a hearing on social media filtering practices. Unsurprisingly, a Pew Research Center study found that “Today around seven-in-ten Americans use social media to connect with one another, engage with news content, share information and entertain themselves.” With so many Americans on these platforms, we should know how the platforms determine the content they’re sharing.
Dylan Matthews provides yet more proof why nobody should ever treat Vox as a serious publication. In the past this Vox writer suggested we ditch the U.S. Constitution for a parliamentary system of government, get rid of the U.S. Senate, and opined about how American Independence in 1776 was a "monumental mistake."
Not all liberal media outlets are giving favorable coverage to former FBI Director James Comey's new book, A Higher Loyalty. One such media source is Vox which reminds its readers about why most liberals were clamoring for Comey to be fired...right up to the moment when President Donald Trump actually did fire him.
Although much of the mainstream media such as the New York Times and CNN has recently gone ga-ga over the candidacy of Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke (D) who currently is running for the U.S. Senate from that state, Vox wasn't quite so kind in analyzing how he did in Tuesday's Democrat primary. In fact they called him a "Loser (sort of)" since he underperformed despite running against nonentities in his primary.
What do food and Planned Parenthood have in common? More than you’d expect, according to Guardian columnist Jessica Valenti and Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards. They’re connected, just like the #MeToo movement and abortion activists.
