WTF? With Matt Lewis

Matt Lewis of The Daily Caller and more recently of The Week keeps his readers guessing “WTF?” and that’s why we like him. One day he’s dissecting the history of angels and comparing them to journalists. The next he’s praising the Redskins’ RG3. The next he’s suggest Republicans adopt “fresh” ideas like returning back to ideology espoused by former President George W. Bush.

Today Lewis does a few things under a column headlined “The working class epidemic of demoralization.” First, Lewis bemoans the “disconnect” between coastal elites and everyone else in “flyover” country.

That’s a real problem worthy of looking into. While reading, we looked forward to what thoughts or insight Lewis might have to share on the matter. But before we knew it, Lewis had shifted into commentary about the destructive behavior poor people engage in while imitating the rich.

WTF With Matt K. Lewis

The Daily Caller‘s Matt K. Lewis is a respectable politics and media blogger by any standard, but reading his new columns in The Week forces one to ask: WTF is going on with him?

Each week for the past three weeks Lewis has published a short musing for the magazine. But never on the same day of the week and with no apparent theme. He tells FishbowlDC that in addition to his gig at The DC, he’s now a regular columnist (though he’s being somewhat loose with the term “regular”).

In his first column, published on Oct. 19, Lewis wrote about “the incredible shrinking manufacturing industry.” It concerned the presidential election and the candidates’ stances on the manufacturing industry. That’s timely. But the next week, things got weird…
