I really enjoyed that they emphasized how 'anti feminist' = 'misogynist.

I wasn't thrilled to see Amanda Marcotte quoted in the piece either, but still -- I focused on what it said rather than who said it.

I'm guessing that MediaMatters article was written in response (or as a followup to) Buzzfeed's recent article on "How Breitbart And Milo Smuggled Nazi and White Nationalist Ideas Into The Mainstream."

I was reading "How NBC ‘Killed’ Ronan Farrow’s Weinstein Exposé" and the thought occurred to me — could the "Jackie" Rolling Stone story collapse and subsequent lawsuits have anything to do with NBC killing the Weinstein story?

I dunno -- I might be misremembering this (I haven't paid super-close attention to the Weinstein debacle), but wasn't there a fairly recent revelation/story on the theme "Yeah, the NY Times or some similarly august publication was going to publish a Weinstein expose a decade ago, but decided not to?" It appears that covering up for that scumbag was a thing long, looooong before "Jackie" gave publications some legitimately non-sleazy reasons to feel skittish about running such stories.

As I recall, the Jackie story did not go through a proper editorial process, so it should have been obvious that there could be problems.
