The Ideology of the Washington Post


"People are often wrong about what's good for them."

That was Dylan Matthews, adorable white nerd* of the Post, in conversation with Bhaskar Sunkara, openly ideological Marxist of Jacobin

People are often wrong about what's good for them, therefore we need Richard Cohen to tell us that interracial marriages are disgusting

People are often wrong about what the best books to buy are, therefore we need Jeff Bezos, Dominus et Deus of Amazon and the Post, to quietly strangle all independent booksellers with sweet sweet e-reader offers.

People are often wrong about how real-world politics works, therefore third parties are a silly topic fit for puerile eruptions.

It really makes sense if you read the Post thoroughly.

*I don't think that's his official job title, but the Post won't tell us that -- only that he covers "all things data."
