GUYS, Trump is super savvy. all the kool kids say so
LA Times poll this week gives Dems largest generic lead in modern American history, so **of course** it’s time to type up a Dems In Disarray column
can you imagine looking over current midterm landscape, where GOP in many cases is conceding districts they have held for 30+ yrs and saying, ‘I’m gonna write column abt how Dems are getting outsmarted’?

virtually every comment here is asking why WP is using “false claim” re: blatant Trump lie in 2022

why won’t WP explain?
this is the media’s defining two-step: invent new rules for Trump, never explain them to news consumers
bc they’re indefensible

“I don’t have regrets about the Hillary Clinton e-mail stories.”

stunning lack of introspection from NYT executive editor…
this is exactly why @deanbaquet fired the paper’s public editor after 2016 campaign

the strategy was to circle the wagons and to force entire newsroom to sign off on collective denial re: one of the worst journalism failures of this generation

my latest—he’s Ken Starr II, the press should treat him that way;…
another partisan GOP conducting a Clinton witch hunt.
“The bad news is the same elite news outlets are stepping lightly around the real story at the center of the right-wing mob — the unethical nature of Durham’s work and how he’s clearly working with the far right to try to manufacture controversy where none exists.”

so for a story on Dems woes, AP goes to a town in PA that voted 75% for Trump

when is AP going to go to Bronx and do story on how unpopular GOP is in urban areas?
statistically, you cannot find a less important voting block than white voters in sparsely populated rural counties

Dems **just won** Pa in 2020

AP: Dems are doomed in PA

“U.S. retail sales rebounded by more than forecast with the biggest gain since March, as Americans kept spending through a Covid-19 spike and hot inflation to help drive the economic recovery.”
