      Scoops Delacroix

      Scoops Delacroix is a freelance journalist and former communications director for the Front de libération du Québec. His book "Shake: Yuri Andropov and the Death of Narrative" is available on Amazon.

Dedicated readers of National Review Online’s ‘Jolt’ newsletter received some unexpected content this morning in the form of direct links to pornographic websites.

‘Jolt’ author Jim Geraghty says there was a glitch in the Matrix. “Well, here’s an awful start to Monday morning,” he wrote in a blog post warning subscribers about the mistake. “Apparently the links in today’s Jolt are sending people to porn sites. The version I sent along to the editors seems fine (you can see a portion in the preview post here) so there must be some issue with the link-shortener used in the editing process.”

An updated, and presumably less interesting, version of the newsletter has been distributed.
