    "...I wish someone in MSM analyzing this would say more than "good the Dems do it too" but "AND the Dems attacks aren't all provably false..."
    The Democratic candidates and their surrogates need to pound the MSM talking-heads until they're bloody.  We need to make them know that we hold them in the deepest contempt possible.  They need to learn that repeating Republican statements verbatim will just earn them another pummeling.  Every interview with those clowns needs to start off with a head-slap around their ears so hard their head is swimming and their ears are ringing.  Only then will Democrats get treated with respect on an level playing field.

    •  Exactly. Time to shame them (4+ / 0-)

      NUMBER ONE priority to restore democracy in America is to restore media.

      A democracy CAN'T SURVIVE without a vibrant and vigilant press.

      Money in politics, corruption, climate change, you name it... just restore the media and all those battles become much much easier.

      Tweet like mad to the national pundits. Not necessarily with a nasty tone, but tell them you see they are not pushing back against the lies. Shame them on their double standards. ASK them WHY they are so afraid of the republicans.

      And SEND THEM great articles debunking republican myths. EDUCATE them constantly. Those people are in a bubble, they are constantly in contact with conservative think tanks. Wanna bet many of them only read Politico. They are good at covering politics, they are horrible at covering policy. I've become convinced many of them are not very knowledgeable, so the lack of pushback isn't only lack of courage, it's also ignorance (and lack of preparation).
