The Media Always Sees Democrats in Disarray

Source: The American Prospect
by Eric Alterman

“[T]here’s an unspoken conspiracy between so-called ‘centrist’ Democrats and ‘savvy’ members of the mainstream media to undermine the priorities of the vast majority of the party’s voters (and, according to almost all public-opinion polls, those of most Americans). It reveals itself most obviously in two types of stories. The first is the ‘Dems in Disarray’ narrative. Republicans can eternally march in lockstep with a psychopathic, racist, sexist, proto-fascist, mentally unbalanced con man rapist, and yet reporters are most interested in the thoughtful ‘misgivings’ of Democratic centrists who have ‘concerns’ about the priorities of their party.” (08/27/21)
