Writing at the website for New York Magazine, liberal journalist Jonathan Chait slammed another top progressive thinker for penning a recent article that embraced a “conception of justice totally removed from the liberal tradition.”
The topic was campus sexual assault, and Chait’s criticism was aimed at Ezra Klein, the editor in chief of Vox, a website created as an outlet for “explanatory journalism.”
On Monday, Klein wrote in support of a bill recently passed in California called “Yes Means Yes.”
What seemed to irk Chait — and many others across the political spectrum — was that even though Klein admitted that the bill would infringe on the rights of innocent people, he supported it nonetheless.
“SB 697, California’s ‘Yes Means Yes’ law, is a terrible bill,” Klein wrote. “But it’s a necessary one.”
