  •  They desperately want a divided base on our side. (15+ / 0-)

    They don't know how to do journalism that isn't a pox on both houses.  They want so badly for what's going on with the GOP - extremism bringing the party down - to be replicated on our side.

    They refuse to acknowledge that the Democratic base is unified on our goals and working to advance them in any way possible.   You don't have Warren campaigning for Grimes if that isn't the case.

    So they get some opportunists from the think tanks to weigh in, then write a headline that doesn't match the content of what anybody in the article is saying.

    •  They like to pose as the voice of reason (6+ / 0-)

      between opposed camps of irrational ideologues. Whether or how much their little self-congratulatory scenario actually corresponds to reality is of no concern to them, really. They only need enough correspondence to lend them plausibility. They'll take care of inventing the rest.

      Marx was an optimist.
