Thirty-year-old wunderkind Ezra Klein is the editor-in-chief of Vox.com. Vox has emerged as the best Wikipedia plagiarist on the Internet.
Long before Klein was serving “Nerf ball” interview questions to President Obama he billed himself as budding entrepreneur and an inventor of the Ice Cream Cooler and Melt Stopper.
Here he is in the Los Angeles Times on February 2, 1991.
For 6-year-old inventor Ezra Klein, the inspiration came from his baby sister’s spilled ice cream cone.
Why not, he thought, put a frozen piece of plastic around the cone to keep the ice cream cold and catch any wayward drips?
“I call it my ‘Ice Cream Cooler and Melt Stopper,’ ” said Ezra, a first-grader at Irvine’s University Park Elementary School. “With this, my sister won’t spill everything anymore.”
Later Klein worked as a radical left-wing student journalist at U.C. Irvine.
Klein ultimately created Journolist, where disgraced journalist David Weigel formerly of the Washington Post was fired for hoping for the death of Rush Limbaugh.
Spencer Ackerman’s hateful attacks on conservatives was also laid bare. Ackerman said that liberal journalists should simply call any Republican “racist” to defend Obama from questions related to Jeremiah Wright.
He said some nasty things about the late MSNBC host Tim Russert.

As a young activist Klein advocated being dishonest to the American voter in a sort of Gruber 1.0 comments.
Now he promises to “explain” the news to us with Vox.com.
We just want to him to explain how he can stop ice cream from melting.
