Well, now we know why the Washington Post did not want to invest in Ezra Kleins explanatory journalism nonsense. Turns out it is just a left-wing propaganda tool trying to spin instead of explain.
Let us turn our attention to Matthew Yglesias, the Executive Editor of Ezra Kleins new site. As my friend Pejman Yousefzadeh has well documented, Yglesias is just not that bright. He thinks Joe Lieberman is a dumb Jewish politician; was shocked to discover Senators represent the states as opposed to populations; was unaware of a black conservative tradition; couldnt understand why Miami didnt expand westward (hint: a giant swamp); had no idea an incumbent President had been defeated in primaries (Jimmy Carter lost 13 primaries in 1980 to Ted Kennedy and Jerry Brown); thought Bobby Jindals reputation for intelligence was just ethnic stereotyping; argued it was okay to lie about having kids; wanted to know why Egypt didnt have a Parliamentary system as if itd matter and, by the way, it already does have one; thinks there are too many banks; thinks no banks have been chartered in 2013 even though banks were chartered in 2013; and the list goes on.

Matthew Yglesias ( born May 18, 1981) is an American economics journalist and political blogger.
From the Article:
Which brings us to his video at the JuiceVox Media website. He tries to explain the National Debt and out of the gate beings with a lie. He claims the national debt is $5 trillion less than the U.S. Treasury says it is.
Then he uses deficit and debt interchangeably.
Then he claims the U.S. Government can never run out of money.
I guess a Harvard education isn’t worth what it used to be.
