Living In The World The Right Made

It’s kind of funny to see conservative Jennifer Rubin write this in the Washington Post:

Unfortunately, the media largely reports the Democrats’ charges as if they are simply the Democrats’ “side” of the argument.

That’s been the entire point of the right’s decades-long fight to claim the media is biased. Instead of having a press that investigates and fact-checks claims, instead we have competing “sides”.

Right now, Republicans play this game better than most, with blatantly false ideas like “terror babies” and “death panels” but until the media gets better (ha!) this is how it is.
