There is still too much false equivalence, both sides journalism. Headlines, stories that try to normalize abnormal politics. The Times is still the paper of record; its stories, headlines & framing have impact far beyond the paper itself. In this perilous time, we need better.— Norman Ornstein (@NormOrnstein) May 15, 2023
Such a straw-man argument. The choice isn’t between showing DT & ignoring him! It’s nonsense to suggest that anyone who objected to CNN’s grotesque faux-journalistic circus just wants to stay in a Trump-free silo— the opposite is true. We want him to be covered *responsibly* https://t.co/c5xqoch2gT— Emily Nussbaum (@emilynussbaum) May 12, 2023
Some of Cooper's colleagues aren't following the company line.
Compare that to Chris Licht today: “I absolutely unequivocally believe America was served very well by what we did last night.” https://t.co/vKUld9yeiZ— Jay Rosen (@jayrosen_nyu) May 12, 2023
And getting back to the NYT.
To be clear: the New York Times op-ed page invited a former Fox executive to write a defense of CNN’s town hall with Trump.— Mehdi Hasan (@mehdirhasan) May 13, 2023

Checking in with the GOP.
As Josh Marshall pointed out, the grand old party just had another bad Tuesday.
A Democrat just won the mayor's race in Jacksonville against a Republican who claimed to be for "parental rights" and had the backing of Moms (Against) Liberty. Maybe something is happening here that's worth paying attention to. https://t.co/o0JLmg5Xuc— Greg Sargent (@ThePlumLineGS) May 17, 2023
When you hear predictions that Trump is about to be forced out, remember that a substantial segment of the Republican base feel like this.
What would you say to Trump? “You are a true American hero. We love you. You are the true American badass we have been waiting for. You are like our father, our protector, and we love you.” pic.twitter.com/7TOc5NXu89— Ron Filipkowski (@RonFilipkowski) May 13, 2023
An alternate reading of the Gospel of Luke.
This is an actual tweet from the Governor of Florida— Prof Gavin Yamey MD MPH (@GYamey) May 13, 2023
A real tweet celebrating a person who chocked a fellow human being to death
Celebrating the person as a “Good Samaritan” for the killing
A “Soros” antisemitic dog whistle thrown in for good measure😢

In a sense, it's useful to have all of the so far left they're far right crowd on one platform.
So Rumble, owned by far-right figure Chris Pavlovski and funded by far-right billionaire Peter Thiel, now owns Callin. Meaning that Aaron Maté, Katie Halper, Michael Tracey, David Sirota, Briahna Joy Gray, Ben Burgis, and Sabby Sabs now work for Peter Thiel. pic.twitter.com/VlW952SB6L— Post-Left Watch (@PostLeftWatch) May 16, 2023
The sad part is I think Allen does understand, but his need to show he can criticize both sides drives him to misinform his readers.
Apparently @jonallendc thinks that if a company reduces their *losses* from $1 billion to $500 million to $200 million three years in a row, they don't get to claim that they "reduced their losses" because their total debt is $1.7 billion at the end of the third year.— Charles Gaba isn't paying for this account.

So God will know exactly where to drop the meteor.

What's it like to be silenced and cancelled? We caught up with some wealthy journalists at a trendy Manhattan club to find out.— New York Times Pitchbot (@DougJBalloon) May 19, 2023
"Ask" is a bit anthropomorphic, but still a cool clip.
