Earlier today, Vox.com, which purportedly exists to boil down the facts into easy to digest explanations, published a post titled “What are Israel and Palestine? Why are they fighting?”

A Washington Free Beacon fact check of just the first of over two dozen pages found the Vox piece riddled with errors:

A possible reason the Free Beacon’s shredding of the Vox piece on Israel-Palestine listed “staff” instead of an individual author was offered:
