    My point was maybe these reporters saw the exact thing you are saying in this diary at the time too and figured if she was going to win her district anyway and have the potential to rise to national prominence quickly, why burn bridges?  In a wave election she won with an eight point margin, she was not going to lose no matter what.  Now that she has pushed her agenda on the national stage, for everyone in her district to see, she has won reelection twice.  How much would "exposing" her extremism really accomplish when she embraces and promotes her extremism and continues to get reelected?  The media can't take her down, only a credible primary opponent or a conservative Democrat
