Ezra Klein Leaves Vox for The New York Times

Lauren Williams, the website’s editor in chief, is also leaving. The departures come against a backdrop of change in the digital media business.

By Edmund Lee
Nov. 20, 2020, 4:04 p.m. ET

Ezra Klein, a founder of the popular website, is leaving the publication to become a columnist and podcast host at The New York Times, the latest high-profile departure from Vox Media during a wave of change in the digital media business.

Lauren Williams,’s editor in chief, will also be leaving the publication to start a nonprofit to create a “new and different kind of Black news outlet,” the company announced in a note to the staff on Friday. Vox Media plans to hire a new editor for its flagship site and has open positions for other senior roles.

Mr. Klein will join The Times in January to write columns focused on policy and to host an interview podcast.

As I quoted Ezra in my February review of his book Why We’re Polarized:

“My father is a Brazilian immigrant, so I care deeply about immigration….”

Here’s a picture of Ezra’s Latinx immigrant dad, UC Irvine math professor Abel Klein.

  7. Ezra Klein and Matty Yglesias have both left Vox in the course of a week. End of an era. Who will tell me what to think now? In the post Trump world, no real need for explanatory journalism as we now all know what is right. As recently as 2015, the Vox parent company, the sports centric Vox Media, was valued at over One Billion Dollars!

    Vox Media rolled up several eccentric blog titles, scored a massive evaluation and is possibly now on the downward slide. Who needs clickbait liberal journalistic hot takes when there is Twitter?

    Regardless, I am sure Klein did well for himself. My guess is that the tea leaves read that “wonky” semi-contrarian takes that ever so gently push back against the Biden Administration are the wave of the future. The Golden Era of Pansexual Anarcho Libertarian Sex Worker Journalists fighting fascism while addicted to heroin may sadly be behind us. The Center has held. No longer a need for a United Front Against Fascism.

    We now return to boring elite consensus journalism.

  17. Ezra went to University High School in Irvine, lots of chinese and persians. Alumni include Will Ferrell and Zack De La Rocha.

    I only did two weeks at UC Irvine living in “Middle Earth” dorms (like San Quentin but named after Tolkien). A very Islamic and Chinese segregated campus. Plenty of hijabs and freaky Foucault freaks.

    Thereafter, Ezra went to UC Santa Cruz (banana slug mascot and stomping ground of Angela Davis) before transferring to UCLA. At least he graduated.

    Ezra is not an intellectual, and the reason why I don’t read Vox or the NY Times. Our gracious host does it for me; and for that, I’m very grateful.

    Here’s the reason why UC Santa Cruz selected the banana slug mascot decades ago. Because banana slugs don’t need partners to reproduce. Every banana slug has male and female parts.
    So it’s like transsexual or something.

    I always the slug was selected because it’s such a NCal critter. But no, because it’s transsexual. Everybody was surprised the mascot wasn’t Trotsky or Lenin. Founded by communists to give and I do mean give Black Panthers PHDs.

    Banana slugs are really really cool. They really look like bananas but not a pastel more a darker yellow. In summer they’re kind of small. But in the rainy wet N Cal winters they expand to the size of a banana. Much fun to capture torture and kill. Probably has no brain with nerves so doesn’t feel pain.

    Entire town is insane liberals. And highway 1 runs right through it. So it can’t be avoided.

    As we saw in Zimbabwe, nothing boosts agricultural productivity more than taking farmland away from white families who have worked it for generations, studying its capabilities and needs, and giving it to Blacks.

    A Zimbabwe-type farmland confiscation program would work especially well in the US because African-Americans in 2020 are so interested in the nuts and bolts of improving agricultural productivity.

    Either Vox is losing money and the salaries are under threat, or a few people at the NYT got quietly fired and the NYT is forced to go headhunting to replace them.

Oh, and protecting his daughter from strange men.

  27. Wilkey says:

    Well changing the subject slightly, four of the last five Supreme Court nominees by Democrats have been Jewish. If Breyer (86 y.o. at the end of Biden’s term) manages to die or retire on Biden’s watch, what are the odds Biden will go five for six? If he does, what are the odds anyone in the “mainstream media” will even bother to mention it?

    Part of me thinks that Biden will double down on race, either by nominating a black (another gift from St. George Floyd (PBUH)) or by nominating the Court’s first Asian. Or he could nominate Kamala, and get one of each, but she’s just waiting for Crazy Old Joe to die.

    Asians and Jews care more about real power, like a Supreme Court seat (or four), while blacks care more about handouts and pizzazz. And that’s why four of the last five Dem Supreme Court nominees have been Jewish and none have been black.

    There used to be a psychologist in DC who wrote a book called Radical Honesty. The intro to that book is interesting. He writes that the majority of his clients were lawyers and Catholics and that each had trouble in real life because they were so trained to think that life must be lived by certain definite rules that they couldn’t see what’s real and what’s not. His politics were touchy-feely leftist, but I think there is some truth in the point he made. Is it possible that originalism is a quasi-religious piety toward the Constitution analogous to the piety of a good Catholic toward the catechism? On the Supreme Court, the Catholics tend to be the conservatives and the Jews the progressives. And why are there so few Protestants on the Court?

    Oh, Giselle runs the enterprise, no question.

    The story is going around that Robert Kraft got Bellichick and Brady in a meeting, which Giselle attended, and Giselle basically ripped the Patriot brain trust a new one.

    When they lost the Super Bowl to the Eagles and Tom was getting some pushback, Giselle famously said, “My husband can’t throw AND catch the ball.” Apparently that comment did not go over well in the locker room.

    There’s no doubt she adores Tom, some of the photos of the two of them show she is completely into him.

    You wonder if Tom wants to keep playing so he can spend more time with the guys, but on the other hand, his wife is super hot, even if she’s the major breadwinner. So there’s that.

  50. Wilkey says:

    True. But relative to their shares of the population there are more Jews than Catholics. Jews are only 2% or so of the population, but 22% of the Court. If Garland had been confirmed they would have been 44% of the Court while Ginsburg was still alive – or about 20 times their share of the population.

    In the United States there are at least 10 times as many Catholics as there are Jews. With Barrett confirmed Catholics are 66% of the Court vs. 23% of the population – or about three times their share.

    But there is another term for Catholic you could use, and that term is “Christian.” Catholicism is just one form of Christianity, and people flow between various denominations of Christianity (especially nowadays) more easily than they move between Christianity and Judaism, etc. And Christians who are more inclined to legal careers may be more likely to choose Catholicism than, say, become Baptists or Assemblies of God, etc. I mean, we could also break out the Jewish members by Orthodox, Conervative, Reform, whatever, but no one is doing that.

    Moreover, what really matters here when people say “Jewish” is ethnicity/race, not religion. I don’t believe Ginsburg was an observant Jew. Nor is Breyer, iirc. And I wouldn’t exactly be shocked if Kagan isn’t observant, either. So yes, there are six Catholics on the Court. There is a black Catholic (Thomas), a “wise Latina” Catholic (Sotomayor), and four white Catholics of pretty diverse ethnic backgrounds, plus Gorsuch, the lone Protestant, who was actually raised Catholic, as well.

    Tom is bothered by people saying his success is mostly due to Bill, that’s why he decamped to Tampa, and the thing is, Bill is probably mostly responsible for Tom’s success at least from the standpoint of championships. Not to say Tom isn’t a great QB, but how would Manning or Rodgers or even to a lesser extent Brees have done with Bill has their head coach? Certainly better than they have.

    Manning was burdened with three head coaches in Indy that were always out-coached in the playoffs, even before they coached him. Mike McCarthy for Rodgers was better but still threw away a win against Seattle in the NFC Championship one season and another against Atlanta by not having his team prepared defensively, something Belicheck has never done.

    Nice to see racism has raised its ugly head in the nonprofit world. Or woolly head, though that is a slander against black hair, another recently discovered hate crime.

    So she will be grifting off other big nonprofits started by white millionaires (past) or billionaires. No need to raise money herself from the well known black athlete philanthropic community. Or maybe black entertainers like Oprah.

    Sotomayor is a ‘cultural Catholic’ if that. Thomas is a complicated man and has had an ambivalent relationship with the Church. The biographies of Roberts, Alito, and Kavanaugh are about what you’d expect of ambitious professionals. I wouldn’t doubt they have far more intellectual engagement with Catholic literature than any common-and-garden parishioner and for all I know the surface phenomena just may be the luck of the draw. However…

    Alito married a half-dozen years after most of his contemporaries and Roberts and Kavanaugh had reached middle age before they married. (Mrs. Roberts is a cradle Catholic. From their family background, it’s a reasonable wager both Mrs. Kavanaugh and Mrs. Alito grew up in protestant households). None of them have more than two children. If I’m not mistaken Alito’s children were sent to private research universities (the children of the other two are much younger).

    Tom deserves a lot of credit for the Patriots success, but Bill and his assistants are the reason they have done so well.

    Success in the NFL doesn’t turn on whether you have more great players than another team — in that sense, it’s different than, say, soccer, where a team of better players will almost always beat teams with weaker players, however the manager decides to deploy his players, or deal with match ups.

    Aaron Rogers is the greatest individual quarterback in the NFL now, and maybe in the history of the NFL. He’s better than Tom Brady. Drew Brees is better than Tom Brady.

    No, it’s whether your lesser players will fill specific roles better than the OTHER team’s lesser players and you get your best players to play counter intuitive roles. That is the Bellichick gift.

    When Darelle Revis played corner back for the Patriots, arguably the greatest 1 on 1 cover guy in the game at the time, you would think, “well, put this guy on the opponent’s best receiver.”

    Nope, that’s not what Bellichick would do.

    You put Revis on the second best receiver, and have him totally shut down THAT guy, and have your less talented cover guys double team the other side’s top receiver, who is going to have a hard time shaking two guys. Because two “pretty good but not great” guys are better than one Hall of Famer.

    Out of the box thinking.

    Its extremely competitive for a full Professorship. Increasingly the older faculty dont retire honorably at 67 or so allowing junior scholars to rise and gain resources and grants to further their work. So even a tenure track appointment appointment at the 50 or so research Universities is intensely sought after by multiple candidates.

    Trump promised both during the 2015-16 campaign and in that (in)famous Axios interview right before the 2018 midterms that he was going to end the anchor baby loophole.
    Maybe if he had followed through in say in October/early November of 2018 he would have energized his base enough that the Repubs would have either retained the House or made the Dems’ margin of victory smaller, thus making his 2019 Impeachment in that chamber much harder or impossible.
    Talk about snatching potential victory (both for him politically and for the nation) from the jaws of defeat.
    His abject failure to follow through on ending this nation-wrecking practice in FOUR years of power either shows he’s a conman, lazy and/or totally unfocused. After all it would taken no more than ten seconds to scribble his John Hancock in an EO ending “anchor babies,” but he couldn’t be bothered to do something that simple.

    I’m not sure about that.

    There is an old-fashioned newsstand at the main Metrorail station in downtown Miami. Up until a few months ago, it sold a decent selection of local and national dead-tree newspapers, including the three New York dailies and the Financial Times.

    Recently I happened to be in the area and discovered, to my dismay, that the newsstand had only one paper for sale – the black weekly, the Miami Times. Not even the local “paper of record,” the Miami Herald, was available.

    A couple of months ago, I was trying to track down the latest dead-tree issue of Barron’s. I went to the one place where I knew it was still sold – the Hudson News before security at the Miami airport.

    Alas, all of the airport concessions were closed.
