    stay on the offense and tie Democrats to Obama’s healthcare law, an argument Republicans believe they can win

    I want one of them to define "stay on the offense". With what? LIES?

    The presentation tells candidates to fight back on Medicare until the issue becomes a tie
    With what? LIES?

    This isn't "Political Reporters being lazy". This is fucking propaganda. There's nothing for them to fight back with, other than by repeating completely discredited bullshit just like this:

    attacking Democrats for cutting $700 billion from Medicare in their healthcare reform law
    repeating this over and over is not lazy. It's a LIE. They keep repeating it because the people who pay them want some of (or even all of) their readers to believe it.

    There is nothing the least bit lazy about this kind of language manipulation. It is deliberate.  That particular point is completely divorced from reality, yet the Hill and other "news" sites persist in repeating it, long after it's been discredited. Why?

    It is time to #Occupy Media.
