@daveweigel About "electorate first" campaign coverage. My new post may interest you. http://pressthink.org/2019/06/key-steps-in-the-citizens-agenda-style-of-campaign-coverage/
Your average 2020 reporter spends about 100x as much time in Iowa as the Morning Joe panel
Whatevever you think of Beto, this quote to @GideonResnick feels extremely true. https://www.thedailybeast.com/beto-orourkes-team-is-tired-of-the-medias-bullshit-narrative
 
I think I agree with @alexburnsNYT about this — it’s a bit rich to launch your campaign with a Vanity Fair cover story and then say you’ve been refusing to do the media’s dog-and-pony show.
21, confirming Delaware’s status as a southern state https://twitter.com/southernthing/status/1138548403741306881?s=21
 
This is going to end with Joe Biden talking about Delaware’s proud legacy of slaveowning again, isn’t it?
Emblematic of the Sanders campaign rn; not so much making converts as trying to rebuild what it had at the end of the 2016 primary. https://twitter.com/gdebenedetti/status/1138755384611606528?s=21
 
They seem to truly believe they can win with fewer votes than they got in 2016 thanks to the divided field. I’m not sure that math really works.
No one needs to care about this, but Biden keeps referring to Chengdu, the capitol of Sichuan, as “on the Tibetan peninsula.” It’s weird!
 
If you're going to China, I can't recommend any place as highly as Chengdu. They even have a Chinatown. An old section that's renovated and has old-timey treats. And a Starbucks.
