‘Putin is punching way above his weight class’: Donald Rumsfeld weighs in on Ukraine

http://twitter.com/#!/donsurber/status/440947811354279938

The former defense secretary may have formally left the political arena, but he’s still paying attention to what the White House is doing — and the mistakes it’s making:

From a recent interview with Greta Van Susteren:

At this stage, near term options are few. It seems to me the central problem is bigger and critically important. America and that is America’s weakness, specifically the U.S. is behaving in a way that tells the world we’re in decline, that we’re in withdrawal. We have created a leadership vacuum in the world, and it is filled by the Putins in the world, by people without our values or our interest.

And it’s to the detriment of the United States and our friends and allies around the world. It is the United States that’s injected that instability into the world equation.

Things have certainly changed over the past several years, and not for the better.

Fact-challenged blogger Ezra Klein promises new way of delivering news

http://twitter.com/#!/tomgara/status/427603034437607425

Ezra Klein, for those who don’t know, is a liberal blogger and so-called fact-checker who has a nasty habit of getting his facts wrong. Today, Klein announced he will be publishing a new site owned by Vox Media where he promises to provide readers with contextual information about the news. He made the announcement in a post at The Verge entitled “Vox is our next”:

Early last year, Melissa Bell, Matt Yglesias and I began wrestling with a question that had bugged all of us for a long time: why hadn’t the Internet made the news better at delivering crucial context alongside new information?

This year, we’re founding a new publication at Vox Media in order to do something about it.

Unfortunately, some of The Verge’s readers have no idea who Klein is or what he is talking about:

I’m not exactly sure what this article is about honestly & I feel alone in this sentiment. Can someone elaborate please.

I agree. I’ve read it twice, and I can’t seem to see any actual information about what this announcement means.

Off to a bad start, because I had the exact same question. Ironically this post is missing the necessary context.

Some people, on the other hand, understand all too well:

http://twitter.com/#!/Good_Lt/status/427649099744432128

Klein will be joined at his new venture by Matthew Yglesias whose ridiculous “analysis” has become a running joke here at Twitchy.

A commenter at The Verge sums it up well:

[Klein’s new venture is] about the fact that two of the dimmest bulbs in modern ‘journalism’ are teaming up with the parent company of this blog to create another Huffington Post.

Truly groundbreaking stuff.
