VOX.com: Here to Explain the News to Stupid People

We all know the name Ezra Klein, darling of the left, WAPO columnist and MSNBC contributer, and if you been paying attention you know the name Matthew Yglesias, dubbed by many the Internet's version of Pee Wee Herman with a keyboard. Seems they and a few others have joined forces to"Explain the News" to, I suppose, the low info Obama voters of the world. I can't imagine another group who would have to have a news story "Explained" to them like a autistic child. But then again, we are talking about people who have limited brain capacity when it comes to facts. 

From the Vox Website:
"Vox is a general interest news site for the 21st century. Its mission is simple: Explain the news......"
"The media is excellent at reporting the news and pretty good at adding commentary atop the news. What’s lacking is an organization genuinely dedicated to explaining the news. That is to say, our end goal isn’t telling you what just happened, or how we feel about what just happened, it’s making sure you understand what just happened......"
Explain means to comprehend. This is not a trait of the low information voter. I suspect what we have here is just going to be an Orwellian leftwing truth squad, dedicated to one side of an issue in the guise of the factual sincerity and integrity for people to unintelligent to think for themselves.
