As I've made pretty clear, I am not a fan of the "explanatory journalism" trend that purports to take an empirical approach to explaining complex issues. It's chief practitioners are a bunch of young, terribly biased journalists who tend to treat politics and policy as some sort of game and even as they broadcast their ignorance. Anyway, if you want a concise example of why explanatory journalism is bad so pure and crystalline it could have been produced by Walter White, let me direct you to this Vox.com piece on Medicare.
