      Why bother mentioning Behar in the same sentence, without making the distinction between them? The distinction is central to the story. Unless you leave it out and reduce the story to equivalence with Behar - false equivalence, since they're not equivalent, in the political dimension that defines what is reported here.

      The bad grammar is just the klutzy way the reporter makes the false equivalence.
