    “With its many tentacles, [the Walton Family Foundation] has helped fuel some of the fastest growing, and most divisive, trends in public education.”
    Substitute Soros and Steyer fir the Walton Family Foundation and “public policy” for public education, and it might have been a breath of fresh air at the NYT.
    Seriously, I’m surprised that anything could make Chaitt sound almost rational by comparison.

      Cast in terms of the “majority is meaningless” analysis from the podcast, it seems to me that NYT is usually engaged in a war for the hearts and minds of the philosopher-kings (what I call the politically relevant upper-middle-class to upper-class minority).

    Well, Chait has now met his quota for decency and intellectual honesty for the year. We can expect him to return to this usual jackassery for the next 8 months.

    Sad to say, the Grey Lady and former newspaper of record has become a so-called “progressive” mouthpiece.
