YIMBY movement takedown effort in Truthout

On May 10, 2017, Truthout published an article "YIMBYs: The Alt-Right Darlings of the Real Estate Industry" by Toshio Meronek and Andrew Szeto, both of San Francisco. [title subsequently changed to remove "Alt-Right"].

The article is a great testimony to the rapid rise and influence of the YIMBY movement which, the authors note, is "dominating the dialogue on how to deal with the very real problem of housing inequality."

Aside from the flattery, the article and the follow-up SF Examiner op-ed by same authors are, we think, quite a case study in the polarization and vitriol in discussions around housing -- and perhaps, that more generally, in San Francisco and the country.

We've gathered links to the original article and SF Examiner op-ed follow-up, annotatable version of the both of those, and responses by various local leaders, in a new article: Meronek and Szeto controversy. Let's see what we might build with this!
