Looks to me like Trump correctly used the comma to introduce an appositive, so joke's on you

Yep. In this kind of journalism, analyzing the effectiveness of a slur is considered neutral; acknowledging that it's a slur or considering its toxic effect is"editorializing."

The problem with Axios, encapsulated: Lead story in today's newsletter on "Pocahontas." *One* passing mention of the fact that it's offensive. Not a single mention of an actual Native person. Completely centered on Trump's "wickedly effective" use of nickname.

Yep; it even influenced a lot of decision-making by the campaigns themselves.

Cosign this, and I also worry that political media believe the "mistake" of 2016 was that the press predicted the election wrong. The problem was letting predictions drive coverage. (I.e., Trump will obvs lose, so no point covering him as if he might win.)

Glad to report that I have now seen the entire film “A Star Is Born” entirely through other people’s Twitter takes

(Personally, I don't like using "unlikeable" as a criticism of a TV show or character, because no character needs to be "likeable" to be great. But it is a weird complaint, coming from a show that's so vicious toward its own protagonist.)

The series itself treats the character like it despises her! (This was my big issue with it, and a big contrast between Camping and Girls, which was empathetic toward its supposedly unlikeable characters, and let them be whole people.)

The Fairness Doctrine did not, and never would have, applied to cable news networks, as it only governed broadcast media.

How often, outside of television, do people eat both eggs and pancakes as part of the same breakfast in their own home?
