I heart Jim Fallows

I am a big fan of James Fallows’ “False Equivalence Watch” series of posts. He points out egregious examples of reporters fueling our perceptions of hyper-partisan culture. That is, when reporters leave out key facts in a story to maintain the perception that “both sides” in politics are equally culpable in paralyzing our government with partisan rigidity.

Here’s his latest entry, a quotation of Obama speaking forth on the topic. Bringing a li’l history to the reporters that act like they forgot it.


I'd love to hear what you think!
