Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. How Do Democrats Message Success?

 

One of the daily newsletters that appears in my inbox is from Politico. I can’t recall reading anything there that wasn’t already on Ricochet, but that could be just a poor memory. On the other hand, they definitely don’t see things the same way I do.

This morning I read something that made me chuckle, because after a very long time they came to this:

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are actually glad to see Sen. Kamala Harris and other national Democrats admitting they want single payer, government-run health care for everyone and they hope America is still ready to reject it. They also hammer radical activist Linda Sarsour for acting as if she’s […]

David and Nancy French.

Last week I wrote a piece exhorting David French not to mount an independent bid for president. He ultimately chose not to run, not because of my piece, which I doubt he ever saw, but for very good reasons of his own.

Much of the media class (to us a convenient shorthand) doesn’t genuinely love this country—at least not the country as we have known it. They’ll tell us that they love what this country “might become,” or that they love some of the things for which this country supposedly stands. Ultimately, though, they’ll mitigate their pseudo-patriotism with […]

If you believe that the mainstream news outlets report and opine from the exact center, basically spliting the difference between left and right, then you would think that launching Air America to compete with right-wing talk radio, or launching MSNBC to compete with Fox news, would naturally draw an equivalent audience. The failure of both […]
