I’m glad to see someone is calling this infuriating nonsense out.

I’d normally post the text, but I think it’s worth driving views to the page.

Thank you. I hope you’re not the only one who reads it. Several of the pieces referenced have been posted on XO multiple times.

it’s obvious to you and me, but 99.9% of people are not involved in open conversations about what the fuck is going on in the world and don’t see this

this is sincerely one of the beauties of xo, shit gets discussed here like almost no other place on earth

Well put. I’m often astounded at how easily and willingly people believe what they are told, especially if it comes from some form of authority figure. The weight of the NYtimes name lends credence to the advocacy the paper does. And when other supposedly high-quality papers, like the Washington Post, mirror the same form of writing and take the same positions, it reinforces the message in the minds of the readers and makes it that much harder to refute (since any position contrary to the position of the Times implies one of the two sources is low quality, and the Times’ historic reputation gives it the advantage)

Phenomenal piece and will follow the author for years. Mandatory reading for Trumpmos.

One thing I'll add: A very, very understated impact of ITE on journalism is how many careers ended, who these reporters were, and who were the people to replace them. The only people that could afford to start a career after ITE were either a) well-connected trustafarians or b) SJW zealots willing to work in NYC for 32k/yr who made a splash on their campus papers

Interesting. You’re probably right. It reflects some of what I’ve seen in journalism.

I think the author got it backward--the media agenda is not a reflection of the biases of its readers...the agenda is driven by corporate advertisers who now support the media almost entirely..the readers are mere brainwashed pawns who picked one of 2 political tribes based on their degree of brainwashing
