This is such a strange tweet from a NYT political reporter. First off, in what way is stating a hard statistical fact 'disconnected from realities'? Are we just supposed to pretend that all the 3rd party weirdo votes would've gone to the Dem (see: Jill Stein & 'earning my vote')/
Also, do you really 'not get what it's supposed to mean' that she underperformed drastically from the top of the ticket, given that it was literally in your very own interview you did with AOC, where she held up Omar (& her door-knocking) as some big factor into Biden's win?
I really don't believe that he doesn't get this. Even a Chris Cillizza-level political journalist could understand this. I'm just going to go with playing dumb.
On a related note, isn't it kind of odd how the journalists who cover (& get favorable interviews/leaks from) 'the left' always seem to go out of their way to run defense for them? Remember when that DB journo tried to make "Biden throws Bernie progressives under the bus"a thing/
because Biden simply responded to 'how do we know you're not a socialist?' with 'because I beat the socialist." That was a dumb non-troversy.

Ok, just so we're clear here, the logic in Tracey/Greenwald-ville is:

A coup: A TV host saying 'fun fact', a deray tweet & a WaPo opinion columnist

NOT a coup: The POTUS & his party refusing to accept the election, inventing fraud, lawsuits & personally lobbying to overturn it
The idea that a coup was ever held up as a real possibility is fucking lunacy. Now, Chris Hayes tweeting, "Fun facts, the electoral college....." that's how a real coup attempt begins.

Umm ok, yes but I was told she single-handedly "delivered" Minnesota for Biden....or something.
lol no
Also kind of throws a wrench in the 'lack of in person canvassing was what did in Dems' theory of things.

Nancy "Salon" Pelosi. Gavin "Dinner Party" Newsom(e)

Again, how is this account any different than your 100% bog-standard RWer account?
The extremely smart political knower couldn't even be bothered to take 2 seconds & google the correct spelling of Gavin Newsom's name. Luckily, he no longer has any editors to censor him.
His entire feed is about 'liberal hypocrisy' (& Obama). There's not a single word about what Trump/GOP are doing. Not even one stray, 'What Trump is doing is wrong' tweet to cover his ass. Zero.

This is especially on-brand for Glenn bc he was going around yelling at anyone who called Trump a fascist/authoritarian bc 'oh sure fascists just regularly get voted out through democratic elections'. Now that Trump has lost & is actively trying to overturn the election...silence
Beginning to think this Greenwald guy is not a good faith journalist.
Me, before the election: OMG you think Trump is a fascist authoritarian. There's a democratic election scheduled, where the people will decide, idiot

Me, after the election, as Trump tries to overturn the results:

OMG. Dangerous authoritarianism from...some guy criticizing Fox.

I have been found out. I guess, it's time for me to DO SOMETHING!
(he deleted it like 30 seconds later lol)
Reminds me of that time I posted a picture of me out canvassing for (insert PA Dem Candidate) in 2018 & that crazy lady who follows Matt Taibbi around accused me of being a campaign operative for him & spreading lies about Matt Taibbi while I was out canvassing. Normal stuff.

I really, really hate this type of reductive framing where the media (& the 'left') just boil down someone with an impressive record to one single descriptor, which is of course the most negative possible framing.

Basically invalidated all the good accomplishments they've had.
Like, say describing Barney Frank as a former board member of a bank instead of architect of Dodd-Frank.

Could do it for plenty of Lefty favs too...
