Vox seems pretty cool and awesome. I just really wish there was a way to search for certain key words or articles. I signed up for their emails but I had no idea what it was really, I assume it is just where people post their articles? I just found the about page and it said that Vox is about explaining the news in elementary phrases and terms.
I think it is genius and really smart! I do not think that the content and quality of the articles are dumbed down necessarily, I just feel as though they are simplified which is necessary for students and new people to the topic or issue, to understand what is going on.
I think looking at The degree that doesn’t pay off it was extremely interesting. I think there needs to be more talk all the time about these types of issues in our paper. I think it was well presented. I just think there was a lot more that could have been done that would have made it even better.
