Hey Daily Beast, Um, Why Is This a Story?


It must be a slow news day, because the Daily Beast is running with the earth-shattering scoop that people say mean things on the Internet. Brian Ries writes that the comment section of Ben Smith’s Politico blog has “degenerated into a screaming pit”: At his new online home, he wanted to create a space for [...]

Quran-Burning Stunt Reveals That Conservatives, Not Leftists, Are Consistent Foes of Religious Intolerance

Sorry, But Hillary’s Not Becoming A Defense Hawk Anytime Soon


This week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivered a major speech before the Council on Foreign Relations, which has the folks at the Daily Beast swooning—the normally clear-thinking Tunku Varadarajan hails the speech as an unapologetic embrace of America’s role as global leader and refutation of moral cowardice and cultural relativism: Try this for size: [...]
