Here’s why the campaign to take down Nancy Pelosi is sexist — and a genuinely terrible idea 16.11.2018 Raw Story

There is nothing progressive about the push to stop Nancy Pelosi from regaining her seat as speaker of the House when Democrats regain the majority in the new Congress that will convene in January. Frankly, the effort to undermine Pelosi is sexist, and not just because of the disdain so many display...

Who Gets to Tell Stories About Poverty? 15.11.2018 American Prospect
This article appears in the Fall 2018 issue of The American Prospect magazine. Subscribe here .  It should not be all that difficult to report on economic inequality. It’s a fixture, after all, of modern American life. And yet, the journalism industry, charged with analyzing and conveying news of wage stagnation, persistent poverty, and downward mobility, has itself crumbled alongside much of the middle class. Over the past several decades, more and more journalists have been laid off, while the rates paid freelancers have fallen, too.

Remember When Women's March Was 'Indulgent, Frivolous Waste Of Time'? 15.11.2018 Crooks Liars
The House of Sulzberger does not pay Mr. David Brooks to be a journalist, to write in the style of planting one's feet, and telling the truth. The House of Sulzberger pays Mr. David Brooks dress up and pretend to be a journalist while spinning fables that reflect how a handful of wealthy, sclerotic plutocrats wish the world to be.  And when it turns out that the world is manifestly not as Mr. Brooks has told them it was -- when the toxic, racist sludge the GOP has been running through the veins of the American body politic erupts in an electoral embolism so monstrous that it cannot be ignored... ... Mr. David Brooks' feeble-minded acolytes turn to him not to tell them the truth -- never that -- but to tell them bigger, better comforting lies. For example, with the issues and results of the 2018 midterms still fresh in our minds, let's set the  Wayback Machine  for a very short hop to "Literally Just Last Year" to find out how Mr. Brooks interpreted the Women's March for his wealthy, ...
