Donkey Feed: Wednesday July 25th, 2018

By Michael Bryan

Alas, I have not found a good solution for noting web articles and posting them here to the blog since Digg changed its business model. So, for now, I’m going to try a bi-weekly compilation of the best I’ve read so far that week.

Unavoidably, some of the articles will be a few days old, because I’ll be compiling throughout the week and posting (hopefully) twice a week: on Wednesdays and on Sundays (alongside Blue Meanie’s Calendar and Editorial Cartoon posts). I’ll try to stick to articles of note that will stand the test of a little time, or more considered looks at the breaking news of the week.

So, here we go after the “Continue Reading…”.

  1. Fact Checker 13

    I just listened to the entirety of the Thomas Frank link, and I feel it is unfair to characterize that as about the “white” working class when he uses the phrase working class/working people (sans white) at least ten times as often as he does white working class. The title of the video is “Frank : “Trump won because Clinton and the Democrats dismissed the concerns of working people”. And Trump did 2% better than Romney with both African Americans and Hispanics. So I do not think that “white” should be included in the description of this video, as the Democrats lost the working class (period).

  2. thanks so much for posting this – only took about 15 minutes to create pdf files and transfer to my kindle fire – for leisurely reading as I am one of those that does not like to read long articles on my laptop. Please note the link for 2 polls needs to be fixed- currently it is -http://2%20new%20polls%20give%20democrats%20a%20double-digit%20lead%20in%20the%202018%20generic%20ballot/ and should be https://www.vox.com/2018/7/25/17613518/2018-midterm-elections-polls-generic-ballot-democrats-kff – and fine to delete this comment
