Skip to comments.Report: Ezra Klein to Leave WaPo After Jeff Bezos Kills $10M Dream Project
Posted on 01/03/2014 7:00:52 PM PST by RoosterRedux
As new owner Jeff Bezos begins his tenure as the head man for the Washington Post, Wonkblog editor Ezra Klein is reportedly making plans to exit the paper after being denied funding for a pet project.
Klein built a media presence on the Internet, newspapers, and TV as a "wonk" at a young age. Now, he apparently wants to expand his reach in the media with an extensive new website that he wanted the Washington Post to fund.

Maybe this smarmy little punk can get a grant from the White House.
The comments are killing me. BTT.
It couldn’t happen to a better pajama boy.
How can a Moron,
A really stupid Moron,
Also be a Wonk?
Comment:Anytime Klein writes about Obama, it’s like reading a Tiger Beat story about Justin Bieber.
The comments at the bottom of the Breitbart article. There are 656 of them as I write.
I guess it wasn’t important enough to include, but what was this project he wanted someone else to fund?
He’s got a home at MSNBC but he may not get paid for those guest appearances.
In other words Wiki-Journalism
What a stupid idea
$10 mil for a website. Klein was looking to cash in.
Hmmm. I am looking at the Breitbart article now... Perhaps the AdBlock or Ghostery apps are more effective than I originally thought, because other than the FoxLinks I do not see any comments. Oh, well. Thanks for the info anyways, mate.
(sound of hyperventilating...)
Hey, Ez, take up the GLOBAL WARMING cudgel and the FEDERAL GRANT MONEY and contributions will flow like water.
Hey, it worked for 70% of the “scientific” grant whores and Algore!
Is this where Marxists try to pass themselves off as journalists by "explaining" why social justice is the best way to go?
“Explanatory journalism” is the verbal anesthetic they plan to use while shunting the proles back down to nineteenth-century technology.
Who pays eight figures to design a website? Besides the Obama administration?
Ezra Klein is first.
> he apparently wants to expand his reach in the media with an extensive new website that he wanted the Washington Post to fund.
Not everyone can find as big a sucker as Aureole Pufnstuff did.
You can ask Ghostery to unblock comments by hovering over the little Ghostery icon where the comments usually are. It will give you the option to view comments “just this once” if you click on it.
Of course, now I have to work with it for a few days to disable only the most annoying of trackers and widgets on the browser. Thanks again for letting Me know that I was missing something on the webpage in question. Always good to know that part of the information I was looking for was not being displayed.
Thank you for the information, dear lady. *smile*
Verbal anesthetic...never heard of that but it sure fits for what the NYT tried to do with the benghazi story the other day. Yes...I’m sure Klein would be into that.
You are most welcome. [smiles back atcha!]
Klein, founder and father of the secret propaganda cabal “Journ-o-list,” was never a “health care wonk” in the sense he was an expert on the issue. On the contrary, he learned enough to throw around industry terms and make the prospect of socialized medicine SEEM as if there was some rational basis or science behind it. There wasn’t, and isn’t.
Klein is and was nothing more than a leftist propagandist. That he formed the “Journ-o-list” to “manage” the news by ensuring all the reporters put the same spin on stories and carefully dole out “facts” in a way the public could not “misunderstand” proves that beyond any argument or doubt.
Klein began backtracking on ObamaCare for the same reason some leftists will hedge on Stalin: they wish to argue that communism was not the problem, but rather its poor execution, and “pure communism has never been tried.” That’s what Klein wanted to do, maintain that nationalized health care was still good even if Obama is an incompetent buffoon. But he was bludgeoned back into the fold as leftist apostates always are - IF they don’t wish to be exiled forever.
$10 mil for a website.
Who does he think he is, the federal government?
