"You have met Facts Man before if you have spent any time online in the past half decade or so. He’s inescapable. He podcasts. He makes YouTube videos. He traffics in Medium posts," writes
“Facts Man claps on the one and the three” is one of the more devastating sentences I’ve read in a while, courtesy ⁦
Looks like The Atlantic is going the way of New Yorker. This has to be one of the dumbest articles ever published
This is perfect. is hilarious.
Oh mannnn, is calling some of you out.
“Facts Man hates complexity and uncertainty. He hates the messy, hazy process of updating our understanding as data come in and things change. How is that #science? How is that something the media are allowed to do?” Bravo, ! Made me snort
"If Facts Man is Science Facts Man, he is adjacent to science, so he understands science better than scientists. He has credentials that let him look at the data and see them, instead of looking at the data and just looking at them." I feel this deeply.
Allow to introduce you to one of the internet’s most ubiquituous and irritating stock characters: Facts Man
And the take-home from this ridiculous article is that we should be Anti-Facts? No Facts? Just the Woke Facts? What exactly is the point of this drivel?
This is the best thing I could have read this morning. “Facts Man is about truth, and by “truth,” Facts Man means the discourse. He parachutes in to rectify the discourse. He invites conversations. He ends conversations.”
Nice piece illustrating how America - and not just Trump - is done with reality

I don't like bragging about career success but this is a big one; I've been profiled in the Atlantic! Slight correction is I don't actually podcast (yet) I think they misunderstood my humour but otherwise very fair. Took a lot of work to make it here.
Step 1: Get super drunk Step 2: Come up with Facts Man, based on your ex Step 3: Write this article about him Step 4:??? Step 5: Profit!
Wow. Using facts is out.
I can't tell if this is serious or not. Second time in the last seven days ("Settle for Biden" was the first).
I wrote a whole book about this phenomenon and just wrote... a better, more devastating essay.
Have you met this man? His name is Facts Man, and writes about him (winningly) over at .
Reading Ezra Klein's wife misrepresenting and mocking facts-oriented Twitter accounts in the pages of The Atlantic reminds me that her husband believes that intelligence has nothing to do with genes, a view to which not a single scientist subscribes.
A short, juvenile article mocking men who value fact and freedom of speech, this asinine, anti-intellectual feminist diatribe must be read (skimmed!) to be believed: a new level of bigotry against men that can't even begin to justify its hatred. Epic fail.
When certain unwanted facts undermine your community of believers, destroy the messengers rather than rethink sacred dogmas.
These are dark times, as Annie Lowrey illustrates. Listen to journalists, people. Don't be deceived by "experts" and their "facts."
Beware of Facts Man: Facts Man is less about truth than raising questions. Why can’t Facts Man talk about certain issues in exactly the way he wants to? via
I honestly don’t know any Facts Man and this makes me worry that I am Facts Man
What is going on here
This, from , is absolutely brilliant.
Never mind facts, other than a thinly veiled rant to particular individuals on Twitter does this article have a point? I can’t see it. Facts Woman points out some “facts” about Facts Man, maybe? May I Introduce You to Facts Man? - The Atlantic
