Ryan Grim & Markos in the news again.
A great article calling out Ryan Grim from TYT and Markos. Takes on the DNC Berniebros talking point created by Perez and perpetuated by the Dems and DailyKos.
"Markos Moulitsas — publisher of liberal blogging site Daily Kos — insisted to the Huffington Post’s Ryan Grim last week that Bernie Sanders supporters were overwhelmingly white and male:
“We remained steadfastly focused on the bigger picture, the Democratic Party picture. Again, less sexy, less excitement, but Clinton wasn’t Joe Lieberman and she was running on the most liberal platform in party history. We saw little reason to further divide our party,” Moulitsas said, when asked about why his site didn’t endorse Sanders despite 60 percent of its users supporting Sanders over Clinton. “Not to mention, given the decidedly white complexion of the Sanders coalition, it made little sense to hitch our wagon to a person who had such difficulties attracting the party’s key growth demographics — Latinos, African-Americans and women. In other words, we were focused on the future.”
If you haven't already, be sure to read the Grim lovefest with Kos that reads like a paid ad. For your convenience, here it is again. I posted it in an essay earlier, and Mark followed up on it on his essay today.
