Good column JB. The sixth paragraph in particular. Opinions are fine. Analysis is fine. We should be able to accept each without questioning the motives of the writer/speaker. That is where historical reputation is necessary. If a writer has a history of total bias, why is it surprising that each tribe reacts accordingly?

I agree with lohr, nowadays I find myself looking at the source before I even read the article and there are many that I just pass over. I was laughing the other day with my brother about the headlines on yahoo nowadays with words like stunning, overwhelming, brilliant. How about just giving me the facts and I will decide on the adjective to use.

Another good read, John. The bot factories are turning out much false info and news, and then we have a percentage of the American population, that reads and believes that info. Then they turn around and quote it in any area that they have access too, thereby becoming trolls. Just to dumb to know what they've become.

...a #metoo movement that wouldn't have been possible under a Hillary presidency. No woman would have come forward knowing how Hillary had made a career out of protecting serial sexual predators, such as her close friend Harvey Weinstein.
Need I even mention Bill?
Yeah, Brummett, excellent column!

moz - Your post cements you as the #1 most ignorant subscriber to this rag - the most ignorant with internet access, anyway. You helped elect an admitted sexual predator yet you think having elected a female POTUS would somehow have SILENCED women. If I found your sorry carcass in the road I would bury you not out of respect for you but out of respect for any creature who might unwittingly eat you and thereby be put at risk for scurvy.

Except, John, the behavior of Trump, Kushner, Jr., Flynn and others toward Russia seem to be directed by much more than a "man crush." Mueller is very likely going to find financial arrangements. Some of it is hiding in plain sight, like the sale of the Florida mansion to the Russian fertilizer king.

DoublyBlind, thank you for proving conclusively that you have nothing but personal attacks going for you. Now, disprove ANYTHING I mentioned in my post.

moz - I don’t have to, you jackass. You never post actual facts to be refuted. You only post ‘what IF this’ or ‘ what IF that’ @sshat scenarios. No one can refute that ‘metoo’ Wouldn’t have happened under Hillary. I find it highly unlikely that women having elected a woman would have remained silent. If anything, they would have called her on the carpet.

"I call that nuanced and objective analysis. I contend it reaches for (some if any) generally credible expository value even if the guy writing it has known strong (and misguided) opinions."

.........."the Democrat candidate was weak "........

John, I never read where you proclaimed that BEFORE the election.

Just as with most Democrats, you proclaimed how great Hillary was until the morning after the election.
