    Bono's insightful there, but then he references Picketty. Barf.

    Almost as bad as Krugman.

    Yes, this is a bit of a "validate Deez" article, but it illustrates my point about the media bias starting to not be an advantage for Democrats. It's leading to major miscalculations.

    It’s okay. This is not college - you can spike the football in the end zone.

    But they all said they were brave reporters, running to a story. Turned out they were just all leftist suck-asses who’d do anything to advance the party line, or cowards.

    Mr. Deez Beer Prophet

    He's right in his conclusion, but he didn't have the balls to say any of this when it mattered, so it's pretty meaningless now. Furthermore, his reasoning is crap, and he has no moral authority. Consider this paragraph.

    "The motive for many progressives to follow these stifling conventions was sympathetic. If you believe systemic racism and inequality are the greatest crisis in America, which I do, and you also believe the racism of the Republican Party is far more dangerous than any excesses on the left, which I also do, then you might hesitate to admit to anything that might be used by Republicans to discredit the cause of racial justice. Yet that hesitation allows the most unreasonable people on the left to rope the whole progressive movement into indefensible and self-discrediting positions."

    He laments the problem, but in the second sentence, he basically lays the predicate for morally and ethnically justifying what progressives did. In fact, he states that he agrees with it. Well, if you think the GOP is massively racist and that it's more dangerous than any excess of the Left, then what they did is not only defensible but a moral imperative.

    However, the last sentence makes clear his real issue. He doesn't have a real problem with what they did. He just doesn't like that it puts progressives in a position to look stupid.

    He sounds like the Khmer Rouge saying yes, we needed to kill anyone who wore glasses, but lamenting how it ultimately resulted in them losing power.

    ***** like this would write the orders that would cause you and your family to be rounded up and sent to a re-education camp. Prepare accordingly.

    The question is how to remove people like that from power and keep them weak, poor, and uninfluential. That is the question the Right must answer or these guys will accomplish their goals someday of enslaving us.

    An article that makes a similar point to Chait's but without being morally incoherent.

    It becomes a lot more clear when you realize the media went from being comprised of mostly adults to vindictive teenage girls.

    Yep, to a great extent the media is dominated by a bunch of Taylor Lorenz starter kits.

    It was apparently forgotten during the Russian collusion years.

    Dang it Longhorn Catholic. You beat me to it. That video is jaw dropping. Not super surprising but with that just laid bare decades ago. You are actively lying to yourself if you believe Big Media.

    The double standards are appalling:

    The double standard is massive. However, I will say that there's one Republican I'm genuinely happy to see lose, and she is it. Hopefully, a serious human can win it back in two years.

    The Times is a constant stream of baseless, defamatory crap. They should get sued every month.
