But not that obvious to wannabe partisan spinmeisters and Nielsen et. al., Nate

    This is obvious I guess, but if you want to cut down on bothsidesism, put people on TV who have subject-matter expertise acquired through reporting or research... not generalists who are asked to opine on a whole bunch of topics they don't really know anything about.

    "The administration bases its policies on what's the loudest and most clickable headline."

    Is this the way, something elites can do with success?

    Email addresses for boycotting activism targeting Fox News:

    to be fair, it's not 24/7 Hannity & Dobbs over there:

    host of "Wait Wait" on NPR echoing Nate:

    Just sitting around watching the "Morning Shows" and here's a crazy idea: instead of paying Trump supporters to argue with increasingly outraged pundits, scrap all of it and just talk to reporters about facts.

    of course he doesn't have to worry about selling ratings and demographics to advertisers....and partisan debates and trying out spin and talking points are good for ratings, and can go viral that can double your payoff...

    Drudge Bashes Fox News Segment on Political Violence: ‘Check Your Soul in the Makeup Chair!’

    The conservative media titan seemed incensed Monday morning by a Fox News panel discussion that appeared to make light of recent political violence.

    for "ratings", or really cares? I'm genuinely not sure.

    Partisan sloppiness, attack on NBC reporter by Ocasio-Cortez (found re-tweeted by Natasha Bertrand):

    My story is completely accurate. The number of undocumented immigrants crossing the border is rising. Please check the stats before attacking the media. I cover this story closely and with accuracy. First to report on the travel ban and family separation. https://t.co/7NCGizestm https://t.co/k08xQsh3ZM

    At least I hope it was sloppiness and not intentional propagandizing like Trump. More and more she is looking less and less like a shining star, more like a kiddie who is going to get eaten alive

    I pretty much decided she was a fool when she advocated abolishing ICE. But a far left fool is far better than a far right fool. It's a reliable democratic district so she'll probably win and she'll go along mostly with the democratic caucus. It's ok, she'll likely grow into her role and learn.
