Pander, Please

“The newspaper of record in our nation’s capital urges its much-preferred political party to ‘trim your principles, Democrats, and pander away.’ This is a very different media watchdog role, where instead of calling out bad behavior, The Washington Post calls for it. Sure, some of President Biden’s policies ‘clearly pander to core constituencies,’ acknowledges the editorial board, adding: ‘The problem is that some of these policies are quite bad — even dangerous.’ For the record, the editors explain that they much prefer ‘the kind of pandering that is less obviously dangerous but still violates common sense and principle.'” (05/13/24)
