Ezra Klein: Romney canceled an ABBA gig because the band’s music is so angry

Everyone on the planet understood that this piece by David Brooks is satire. Everyone realized that this line — “He once canceled a corporate retreat at which Abba had been hired to play, saying he found the band’s music ‘too angry.’ ” — is a joke. Everyone, that is, except...

Lapdog memory lapse: Ezra Klein surprised by something completely unsurprising

'Fact checker' Ezra Klein doubles down on Janesville GM auto plant lie
