It's been a banner year for Bret Stephens. He went wholly batshit when someone called him a "bedbug" on the Internet, "accidentally" cited the work of a white nationalist shitball in support of his conclusion that the Ashkenazim are the smartest of humans, and ... well, that's about it.

Hoss, is that you?

[thanks]

I read that race science piece and was amazed at how, in just a few years, a guy with a craniotomy and an island dream could go from a podunk message board that nobody links to, to having his very own column in the New York Times.

The British tabloids really are a special blend of horrible. See: Diana. I don't know if you see any copies of Hello! Magazine in the USA outside specialty news stands, but if you do, thumb through one for a head trip. You might even come away with a horrible new understanding of the English. :) (Sorry, not sorry, JoeP.) nb: There's a Hello! Canada edition on news stands and supermarkets here.

I can really understand why Harry wants to get his wife the fuck out of there.

What comes next after a NY Times reporter admitted becoming "an unwitting agent of Russian intelligence" | Media Matters for America

From the link “If you get email correspondence of newsworthiness from any source, you have an obligation to publish it, assuming it's true, which in this case it was. You have an obligation to publish it,” Times executive editor Dean Baquet [argued] on NPR. “And if a powerful figure writes emails that are newsworthy, you've just got to publish them.”

Baquet presents a false choice between hiding vital information from the public and behaving exactly as media outlets did during the 2016 election -- one that seems to appeal to other Times political reporters. This formulation ignores a third option -- that the failure wasn’t that news outlets had published emails stolen by a hostile source, but that the scope of their coverage greatly exceeded the actual news value of the emails. The hacked email coverage is one of a series of cases in which poor editorial judgment led to an overwhelming focus on Clinton email-related purported scandals instead of pressing policy issues.
