River of No Return
A chronicle of the swiftboating of everything by Jason Linkins

an interesting history of the swiftboating campaign (launched against John Kerry when he was running against Bush in 2004) and journalists' failure to hold that to account

Exalted Slogans
The curse of radical academic discourse by Yasmin Nair

i wasn't sure about this at first (wondered if it was, weirdly, a critique of lefties? Cornel West and George Ciccariello-Maher) but it made more sense as the article developed: it's a critique of academic discourse that isn't centering the material conditions of academia. good take

The Screwer and the Screwed
Helen DeWitt’s sometimes fictional quests for a crap-free deal by Lauren Oyler
