This is actually a video I wouldn't expect NYT to make.
It's a fucking op-ed news sites publish dozens of them every day. It's honestly so depressing to read this forum post along with the comments of that video and see all the people who have obviously never read a single article past the headline. Despite what conservative outlets would have you believe the "left-wing" media isn't one giant circle jerk that is too afraid to criticize it's own base.

As for the video itself, I found it to be pretty boring. Yeah, the major cities on the west coast are overcrowded poorly zoned/designed shitholes that nobody wants to move from because property values continue to rise and the weather is nice. It's baby's liberal criticism that conservatives will always eat up. The framing of the video is terrible too, everyone seems to forget that we live in a democracy and that just because a certain party is currently in power in a certain area doesn't mean they can just push through legislation on a whim, they are still beholden to their constituents who will not always vote in predictably left-wing or right-wing ways. You can try to paint it as hypocrisy all you want in the broader picture but it turns out to be a little more complicated than that when you actually dig into the details.

You act like I give a shit about politics. I was just posting it because I wasn’t expecting NYT to make something like this. Tbh I never see either side criticize their own side very often when I do watch the news (which is rare). The media does lie quite a bit so you never know what’s true from either side. :)

If you come into the politics thread and post about it you're kind of giving the impression that you at least somewhat care about it and are opening yourself up for people to respond to it as I did.

That would be no fun tho :(

I'm glad the jury got it right and said not guilty to all charges in the Kyle Rittenhouse case.
