Comcast-Funded Website Explains Why Comcast Is Awesome

Vox Dot Com is a website comprised of smart thinkers asking tough questions and creating optimized data-driven content sponsored by some of America's most noble corporations, such as Wal-Mart and Goldman Sachs. The website is part of Vox Media, which has attracted hundreds of millions of dollars worth of seed capital and investments from large media firms such as Comcast (Market cap: $140 billion) , the awful cable monopoly everyone hates and the parent company of NBCUniversal.

Vox Explains Liberals

Vox has written an insightful explainer on why buying a certain brand of shoe doesn't necessarily make you a good person. The piece also, perhaps unintentionally, explains a lot about the young liberal hipsters who read Vox.

The Vox Dot Com President

Vox.com has quickly established itself as the go to source for definitive explanations of challenging topics such as Palestinian infrastructure and celebrity birthdays. In fact, the very existence of Vox.com, and its rise to prominence in the twilight of the Obama presidency, explains more about our commander-in-chief than its stable of boy geniuses could ever hope to with their “blags” and “card stacks.” Even before Vox.com was a thing, Barack Obama was the Vox.com president. He always has been. Like the people who run Vox, Obama is an ideological liberal who insists on presenting himself as a disinterested wonk who is only interested in “what works.” Vox founder Ezra Klein’s first byline for the site was a treatise on the dangers of ideology—specifically, how conservative ideology is endangering future generations by thwarting a massive government intervention to address climate change. In reality, Vox is staffed by ideological liberals, including several former employees of the Center for American Progress Action Fund.
