Jia Tolentino is a well respected writer for the New Yorker (formerly at Jezebel) and apparently her family was involved in human trafficking.

What’s weird is that the human trafficking seems to be the story she herself is using but with prettier words.

I think they know and like her personally. Also she was a child when this happened.

That said, I think her blog post was a huge mistake. Most people are inclined to believe their parents’ side of the story, but to claim to have investigated it and still just underplay the actual events to the extent she did is not a good look.

It's next to impossible to get a paying job in journalism unless you without having done lengthy internships which almost always requires both connections and the ability to work 20-40 hours a week for free for at least a year, so best case scenerio you get a bunch of ronan Farrows, but mostly you get third cousin of one of the Bush twins.

I tried to find out and all I have is "played a mossad agent in a movie"

people have problems with the movie and are saying it's Pro-Zionist. It's called The Red Sea Resort. I am not sure what Chris Evans has to do with it other than starring in it.

I think people are just going stir-crazy and making cancel hashtags. Also the hashtag is almost impossible to find what happened in because most of it is people going "the hell are you guys on about?"

The best thing Joe could do at this point is to go into hiding and not say a drat word through November. Just stay a "generic Democrat" in most people's minds and let the election be 100% about Trump.

Pelosi represents most of San Francisco.

There's a lot of fake right-wing memes that have been going around for ages showing some mansion that isn't her house and saying "look at how decadent Pelosi dems live" and so on. Her house is just a decent-looking place with like three stories and a driveway in the middle of San Francisco. Yes, this is more alienating (and more expensive) than her actually living in some fancy politician mansion if you're under forty.

Yeah, her district is in San Francisco, which is farther from LA than NYC is from Boston.

One incident could be an outlier. This can only be resolved through experiment: keep bringing in more babies until the dog has mauled a sufficient number of them to establish a good statistical baseline. Only THEN draw your conclusions and decide the dog's fate.
