Not like I wouldn’t have guessed, but…


It’s nice to be validated.

The hand-wringing over the 2016 election continues more than a year later. Fake news. Russia collusion. James Comey. Wisconsin.

But two researchers, David Rothschild and Duncan Watts, took on an in-depth analysis of the mainstream media that will add to the 2016 debate. Their findings, published in the Columbia Journalism Review, focus on the New York Times’s election coverage. Their starkest discovery: “In just six days, the New York Times ran as many cover stories about Hillary Clinton’s emails as they did about all the policy issues combined in the 69 days leading up to the election.”

There you go. All the news that fits!

    Paul Manafort was hired to accumulate delegates for Trump which he did with massive success because Trump became the Republican candidate. Bannon was brought in to assist Trump in becoming a finely tuned demagogue. Mission accomplished.

    The Democratic Party was completely incompetent throughout the primary campaign and the general election.

    Completely incompetent and lacking a coherent message about how workers saw their personal economic plight and what the Democrats would do to improve it.

    Who was in charge of the daily activities and messaging of the Democratic Party’s primary and general election campaign apparatus during that period of time?

    …and, Im, I’d go out on a limb and say that come mid-terms the Democratic Party, in spite of all that has been said—-and has yet to be revealed about trump and Russia, his immorality, his endorsement of folks of his ilk, his moronic behavior—-will STILL stare defeat from the jaws of victory! The Party seems to always be late to get ahead of the messaging curve and, as usual, fails to speak to the concerns of everyday voters.
