The "Jeff Bezos" blog?
Really? Credible?

Generally admissions against interest are considered credible, even from the Washington Post.

This article is interesting, because the New York Times decided the study was favorable, but they had a hard time demonstrating that conclusion in the text of their article.

Forbes called them out on it.

My personal theory is that the reporter wrote it straight, and the editor demanded changes to fit some narrative, so that the story turned into an inconsistent mess.

Shocking.

I was following the author William Gibson on twitter for awhile and when San Francisco raised it's minimum wage (which he was supportive of), a noted independent SciFi bookstore announced that it was going to have to close, which he was dismayed at and started bleating about reconsidering the wage hike.

Be careful what you ask for. You just might get it.

The 12 tribes of Israel demanded a king from their prophet, and Saul was annointed their king, so that they could become like every other nation. And like every other nation, they would follow evil gods to send them down to slavery and destruction.

People get what they vote for. And the guilty are punished along with the innocent.

"Reality" and "science" often add up to bad news for liberals.
