Bothsidesism

We talk a lot about it, but sometimes I think people forget the point of it. There isn’t actually any bothsidesism.

What we actually have it a mainstream press which will find any way to legitimize Republican candidates as mainstream – no matter how much they lie, no matter how racist or sexist they are – while not offering the same “consideration” to Dem candidates.

In 2004 the press had no trouble monstering (a British press term) Howard Dean over something ridiculous. They couldn’t even bring themselves to monster Trump when he said mean things (and they were genuinely horrible) about the patron saint of the Washington press, Saint John McCain. Sure they harumphed and said “Trump is dooooooomed now!” which was silly. But it might not have been silly had they chosen to monster Trump over it. Whatever one thinks of McCain, the comments were pretty disgusting. If they’d run them on a loop 24/7 as they did with Dean, it might have actually had an impact. And it’s not as if there hasn’t been plenty of other material to work with. Now it’s just oh, well, Trump is Trump just let him be.

Both sides don’t do it, and the press doesn’t treat both sides the same.

Think Pieces About MEEEEEE And How I Could Possibly Be Wrong…

I’m tired of reading think pieces about WHY WE ALL THOUGHT DONALD TRUMP WOULD LOSE (I’m looking at you, Chait).

First of all, we all didn’t, you and your circle jerk did.

Secondly, I don’t care what your prior beliefs about the Republican party were. If you were an alien anthropologist sent to study this election but otherwise didn’t know a damn thing about about the American electorate, you would have looked at the polls and predicted a Trump win.

Thirdly, to the extent that your knowledge of Republican voters might have added a bit of special sauce to your poll analysis, we hippie liberals have been telling you for years that a sizeable chunk of Republican voters are absolute blithering idiots. Also, racist. This is not news. I’m even happy to accept for sake the holy grail of BothSidesism that a sizeable chunk of Democratic voters are absolute blithering idiots. The difference is that no one in power actually caters to those voters. They aren’t treated as Real Americans by every mainstream news outlet. They aren’t given their own response to the State of the Union address. Almost no elected officials will meet with them. Most importantly, they don’t make up a third of the House of Representatives. The blithering idiots are on TV every day where you can see them, not just some random 19-year-old Ivy student who did a thing you read about in a student newspaper which made your boner shrink.

People who don’t know shit sure do get paid a lot to not know shit, and then to write pieces about why they don’t know shit but they’ll be sure to know the shit next time. Or maybe get a new fucking job and give yours to someone who knows anything about anything.
