I'm genuinely touched by the grace with which most in the media have handled these past two days. But there have been some exceptions.

Not only does the title of this piece evoke the eagerness of vultures circling carrion, it plays fast and loose with the facts.
In the course of making her case for why Bernie is at "the end," the author argues that he "is not currently leading in any of the first four competitive states."

Of course, most recent polls show him tied for 1st in Nevada. (He's top 3 in all the others too).
It's hard to see good faith in an article which would use a first place tie to argue that a candidate is finished. And the omission of any mention of his record setting Q3 haul speaks volumes.

Perhaps the worst part, though, is the citation of @DrJasonJohnson as an authority on medical matters.

Dr. Johnson, to be clear, is not a medical doctor, & his statement that "[i]t is highly unlikely that he will make the next debate" is abt as authoritative as an astrology app.
@drsanjaygupta, a medical doctor, estimated 4 to 10 days recover. The debate is October 15th.

I'll take Dr. Oz over The Root's wild speculation.
@drsanjaygupta (Astrology apps are good though. Follow me on co-star). 😂🔮
