Vox.com will be saying goodbye to one of its founders, Ezra Klein, who is leaving the digital media outlet and joining The New York Times. After eight years at Vox, where he served as the editor in chief of the publication, Klein will be a columnist and podcast host at The Times.

After stepping down from his editor in chief position in 2017, Klein became Vox’s editor at large, which allowed him to work on the website’s television and podcast efforts. Furthermore, he contributed to MSNBC, Bloomberg News, and writing opinion essays for The Times.

The reason for Klein’s departure from Vox is a career move as a result of feeling burnt out and having the desire to be a journalist again. Kathleen Kingsbury, The Times’s acting head of the opinion department, and Paula Szuchman, the head of its audio group, commented on having Klein join their respective departments.

“He helped set the standard for modern explanatory journalism early in his career, and he’s been able to do it through virtually every medium,” the statement said.

During his time in office, former President Trump canceled the subscriptions to The New York Times and The Washington Post out of anger over his portrayal.

In October 2019, Trump canceled the White House subscriptions to two of the nation’s largest newspapers due to the former president’s longstanding feud with the media outlets, which he called “fake” and “corrupt.”

However, in President Biden’s first full day, both physical copies of both papers arrived at the White House.

Although both newspapers went over a year without their newspaper arriving at the White, both The New York Times and The Washington Post saw an increase in subscriptions and readership during the Trump administration. Furthermore, reporters at these media outlets became stars for their breaking news and aggressive coverage. Despite canceling the newspaper subscriptions, Trump still followed reporting on his administration in both papers. The former president often went on Twitter to lash out over stories about his administration, calling them unfair or untrue.

Former President Trump’s time in office has come to an end after four years. The Washington Post decided to commemorate his departure by reporting on the 30,573 false or misleading claims during his time in office.

In their report, The Post counted one inaccurate claim per topic per venue, whether during a particular speech, tweet, or interview.

Of the many false claims that Trump stated during his time as president, one was where he took responsibility for the greatest economy in history. However, the Post noted that former Presidents Eisenhower, Johnson, and Clinton all were responsible for more considerable economic growth than Trump when using current metrics.

As President Trump was ready to depart from office, he recorded one last misleading claim that the Post reported on which was at the Andrews Air Force during his departure ceremony.

“We also got tax cuts, the largest tax cut, and reform in the history of our country, by far,” Trump said. Nonetheless, the Post reported something vastly different as they stated that former President Reagan’s tax cuts amounted to a significantly larger percentage of the gross domestic product.
