Vox revels in bigotry on Bret Stephens joining the New York Times

Vox gets very nasty on the New York Times hiring Bret Stephens:

Earlier this month, the New York Times hired conservative Bret Stephens, longtime writer for the Wall Street Journal, to join its editorial page.

It really shouldn’t have.

Because:

For one thing, though the paper defends the hire in the name of opinion diversity, Stephens is a very familiar sort of establishment conservative — a cosmopolitan, well-educated, reflexively pro-Israel war hawk…

Whatever could they be driving at?

But if that;s not nasty enough, the article continues:

It takes a particular sort of insularity to hire a pro-war, anti-Trump white guy…

One part of this hatchet job notes: “Getting hired has not stopped Stephens from making lazy arguments.”

Irony be damned.
