The controversy regarding Google (former) employee James Damore may have peaked, but it’s not going away.

Most of the mainstream and tech media coverage has been completely dishonest. As mentioned in my first post about the diversity memo Damore wrote, the media was describing the memo and Damore as being “anti-diversity.” That...
