Founded by Milton Glaser and Clay Felker in 1968 as a competitor to The New Yorker, it was brasher and less polite, and established itself as a cradle of New Journalism. Over time, it became more national in scope, publishing many noteworthy articles on American culture by writers such as Tom Wolfe, Jimmy Breslin, Nora Ephron, John Heilemann, Frank Rich, and Rebecca Traister.Source

Why Police Abolition Is a Useful Framework — Even for Skeptics

Why Police Abolition Is a Useful Framework — Even for Skeptics

Please read our updated and , effective on December 19, 2019.CLOSE“Defund the police” has become a rallying cry for recent protests, but several different explanations have been offered for what it actually means. The semantic dispute reveals key philosophical differences among its proclaimers: The abolitionists who coined the term see gutting police budgets as one step toward a policeless society; others who’ve adopted it see policing as redeemable and worth preserving — a common view that much evidence suggests is folly.This has been a source of confusion and contention.

Trump Keeps Boasting He Passed Cognitive Impairment Test

Please read our updated and , effective on December 19, 2019.CLOSEIn an “interview” with Sean Hannity last night, President Trump boasted about one of his greatest accomplishments in office: passing a test used to measure patients suspected of dementia. When the recovery you inherited is in shambles, your major legislative initiatives are either unpopular (tax cuts) or failed (repealing Obamacare), and you have no plan to control a raging pandemic, you are reduced to boasts like this:I actually took one when I, uh, very recently, when I was, uh, when I was — you know the radical left was...

An Elite Progressive LISTSERV Melts Down Over a Bogus Racism Charge

On May 28, progressive election data analyst David Shor about a new paper by Princeton professor Omar Wasow, showing that peaceful civil-rights protests moved public opinion toward protesters while violent protests had the opposite effect. The tweet violated a taboo in some left-wing quarters against criticizing violent protest and led within days to his firing.What happened after that was even more bizarre. On June 11, I wrote an briefly describing Shor’s tweet and firing. Four days later, “Progressphiles,” a LISTSERV for left-of-center data analysts, kicked Shor off. In a message to the...

Please read our updated and , effective on December 19, 2019.CLOSEWhen your presidential candidate is not doing well, it’s not uncommon to look around for historical analogies in which a similarly downtrodden candidate has made a dramatic comeback to win. Until recently, Donald Trump fans needed to look no further than his own improbable victory in 2016. But now it’s beginning to dawn on Trump supporters that Joe Biden is not Hillary Clinton, the object of decades of intense demonization by conservatives, nor is the president an insurgent challenger, much as he might want to to prevent a...

Bush’s chief political strategist, was to Donald Trump on his reelection prospects. As my colleague Jonathan Chait , Rove was too amoral to reject interactions with Trump that other Bush associates routinely eschewed:That Rove would want to help Trump win a second term hardly comes as a surprise. Many high-level Bush administration veterans have recoiled at Trump’s racism, authoritarianism, and unfitness for office, and some have even had a crisis of conscience...

He’d be a good role model. I don’t see any downside to the president wearing a mask in public,” Doocy told Republican National Committee Ronna McDaniel. ...

The ‘V-Shaped’ Recovery Has Died of Coronavirus

The ‘V-Shaped’ Recovery Has Died of Coronavirus

The dream of a “V-shaped recovery” died Thursday of complications from coronavirus.For months, Wall Street’s optimists have been that America’s bedridden economy would bolt upright as soon as the pandemic had passed: After all, the private sector had a clean bill of health before catching COVID-19. Months ago, America’s unemployment rate was near half-century lows, and analysts were expecting a “phase one” trade deal with China to further boost GDP growth. Today, the economy’s fundamentals remain sound; the fault is in our stars, not our financial system. Thus, once all epidemiological...
