  •  Time again using a conservative MSM tool (6+ / 0-)

    The self-fulfilling prophecy.

    The MSM knows that the more-moderate-than-thou types don't want to be associated with anything too partisan or controversial.  So the MSM puts out the idea that everyone already knows that the netroots are just too ideological, somehow controversial, etc., as if it's already known fact among those "normal" types.  

    This allows them to not only hurt Burner and similar candidates, it is a way to tarnish the liberal movement, the media of the future, and the truths spread by that media amoung the more-moderate-than-thou low-information swing voters who just want to vote ultimately for what's mainstream, non-controversial, etc.

    The only place where Republicans are anywhere close to responsible is in the dictionary.
