‘That’s embarrassing’! Is Jonathan Chait angling for a job at Vox?

, , , ,


Vox’s head genius Ezra Klein recently announced his support for California’s problematic new “Yes Means Yes” law:

And New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait is pretty darn disappointed about that:

The liberal response to campus rape has taken on a tone of creeping illiberalism. http://t.co/JmKpo70TJX

He just expects so much better from the JuiceVox-ers. Because they’re usually so … “grounded in empiricism”? OK, this we’ve gotta see:

@charlescwcooke @jonathanchait "Ezra Klein,one of the most intelligent & evidence-based analysts of American politics." That's embarrassing.

Oh dear.

It's kind of weird that @NYMag allows its writers to publish cover letters begging for jobs from other publications. pic.twitter.com/jHnVqWL4QJ

Ha! It does smell a bit like brown-nosing, doesn’t it?

.@jonathanchait You stated that Vox's analyses are "grounded in empiricism." Please empirically defend this assertion. @charlescwcooke

Yeah … he can’t. Because it’s a load of bullcrap. But bless his heart, he’ll still try:

@charlescwcooke @seanmdav Point of that line is distinguishing between its coverage of economics/nat'l politics and social issues.

Sorry, buddy. No dice.

@seanmdav @jonathanchait Empiricism like the Gaza bridge?
