Vox Corrects (Which is Good), But, Still...

Vox, whose motto is “Understand the News,� recently posted a brief article about the fight between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. It’s titled “The Israel-Gaza Crisis explained in 11 facts.�

At the bottom of the article, readers will find the following correction:

This is a pretty big error to have to correct. The author of the article, Zack Beauchamp, somehow got it into his head that there was a bridge between Gaza and the West Bank.

It’s a good thing Vox corrected this error, but the fact that such a correction is necessary raises some serious questions about what is going on at Vox, which describes itself as explaining “Everything you need to know, in two minutes.�

Before you can explain something, you have to know something about the subject.
