"If he, Ken Burns, and his co-writers had been trained, they would have learned that the people they were relying on for much of this history were in fact white supremacist, pro-Confederate, pro-Lost Cause men. White men." ... Burns had no way of knowing what would happen the past few decades, but another refrain in the series that the conflict united us in a way that we could never conceive of splitting again rings hollow in these bitterly partisan times.

Fox News Grills Mnuchin About Hypocrisy Of Trump' 'Cancel Culture' Call To Ax Reporter
Fox News Shares the Blame for Trump's Deranged, Ruinous Presidency
Eschaton: Foxy - It's "interesting" that journalists got extra excited when a FOX NEWS reporter actually reported something negative about Dear Leader. It's weirdly acknowledged-yet-unacknowledged that it's 99% Trump Propaganda TV, such that journalists will point and comment at what is going on there but not really fully embrace the reality of it. After one reporter actually reported something, the rest of the network just shit all over her. The issue isn't that it's conservative, or even that it's specifically pro-Trump, it's that it's a facts-be-damned zone and has been forever, even back when it was, as Jake Tapper said, their "sister network."

Those rats certainly aren't going to fuck themselves - Lawyers, Guns & Money - Although it looks like Republicans wot have their pal Julian to rush to the rescue every time a bad story about Trump comes out this cycle, they are committed unleashing a sea of misinformation onto the electorate: For President Trump and his allies, it was a week spent spreading doctored and misleading videos ... and of course what it reveals about Republican elites shows that what Trump represents ain't going anywhere even if Trump loses.

The conventions changed nothing - Lawyers, Guns & Money - All of the punditry about how the race might be transformed because imaginary voters might like Donald Trump's endless, poorly written and delivered convention speech, wasted again ... In 2016, Trump was actually seen by voters as the more honest candidate. Another way of putting this, then, is that unlike in 2016 Trump is running against a generic white guy the elite political media mostly likes rather than a woman it mostly despises, which means that even when Barr tries an October surprise it' unlikely to go anywhere. The Comey letter had the impact it did because it landed in the context of more than a year of stories implying that there was something about Hillary Clinton and EMAILS that proved she was more untrustworthy and corrupt than the career con artist she was running against.

I don't want to hear about "duty" and "service," either. They took an oath to defend the Constitution, not to hold their tongues until they could get a book deal as a reckless vandal takes the Republic down, brick by brick. Of all the people whom history will account as being complicit in the attempted demolition of constitutional government, I rank them ahead even of the invertebrate Republicans in the United States Senate ... But I am sorry, and angry, that it has come to this, in 2020, when the vandals are still on a rampage that seems as though it can only end in annihilation.

Eschaton: The Narrative - Republicans love The Troops and Democrats hate them and America. Republicans are FISCAL HAWKTIDUDES who care about lowering the deficit, above all, and Democrats want to tax your children to give money to black people. Republicans are good for the economy, while Democrats destroy it. Republicans love FAMILY VALUES and Democrats just want to force you to have gay abortions. Republicans love LAW AND ORDER and Democrats want Kitty Dukakis's murderer to be freed to kill again. -- No amount of facts, polling, etc... can stop political coverage from internalizing these assumptions. Also, that fucking newspaper -- In a report leading with Trump's non-credible denial, the Times asserts that Trump has made "veterans care [a] pillar[] of his campaign" without even a passing note that the main appeal on this score (that he "signed veterans choice) is an outright lie (Maggie, et al, went with the lie, of course, but let Atrios' and Beutlers points sink in)
A perfect opportunity to test some of the ideas I wrote about here. It shouldn't be a total non-story that literally everything Trump says in trying to appeal to voters is an egregious lie.

So He Has Parkinson's Then - And mini-strokes! - Trump has privately groused to friends, family, and aides that New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman accused him of having Parkinson's disease this summer, according to two people with direct knowledge of the matter. Those sources say that the president has been stewing about this for nearly three months, and he still hasn't let it go, bringing it up in the West Wing as recently as last week, one of these sources said. Haberman, however, hasn't accused Trump of having Parkinson's ... the word "Parkinson's" does not appear in the article, but in Trump's mind, that has somehow translated to Haberman tagging him with the degenerative disorder.

Ed Markey Was Just Better at Politics Than Joe Kennedy Was -- He was sharper, quicker on his feet, and more in tune with the current dynamics of the Democratic Party.

And, considering that the main rationale for Kennedy's campaign was that he was part of the new generation of young Democratic leaders, it was striking to see so many of that generation, including Squad Reps. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, as well as progressive avatars like Elizabeth Warren, the Sunrise Movement, and MoveOn, lining up so easily behind the 74-year-old incumbent ... Jake Auchicloss, a onetime Republican with a lot of money who hop-skip-jumped from the Newton City Council to (probably) Congress.
