It is astounding to see the dichotomy in how the release of the draft abortion case was covered in the media. Traditional and liberal media focus primarily on the ruling, the one that overturns 50 years of American women’s rights, while the right is singularly obsessed with leaking. And it’s interesting. Since this could be assumed to be the jubilee day of the Republican Right for Life, they won. They got what they wanted.
But this is precisely the problem. They have achieved a political victory that is supported, at most, by at most 40% of Americans. Meanwhile, they have also lost their best cultural argument: “Elect me! I’m in favor of life! ” and she handed it directly to the Democrats. So obviously Republicans want to talk about everything but the actual sentence.
Mika Brzezinski went straight to the right, defying both the “victory” of ending all choice rights over a woman’s body, while also implying that she knows who leaked the document, or at least which side the document leaked from. document, perhaps intentionally made to distract from the power of the sentence itself, lengthening and diluting the power of release.
“You will tell us about the rights, the 50 years of rights, the decades of precedent that have just been spit out and thrown away in this draft opinion may be slightly modified, but the bottom line is that this is setting women back in so many. different ways with so many different consequences, and you will tell us that the story is the leak – really?
“The leak is fascinating, historical, it has never happened before and whoever has done it is interesting because I think we will find out who did it. I think some people already know who did it, and I think a lot of people are already hinting at who did it, and it’s not who you think, Mitch. “
“I think it is entirely possible that someone at Politico may have” leaked “to other journalists who may have” leaked “the document, or at least” leaked “to other reliable sources in the media the” direction “from which the leak came. news.
It is very tempting to think that he is obviously a liberal, trying to put political pressure on the majority and perhaps to change his mind. But that doesn’t really make any sense on further examination. There are some theories that make sense as to why the right would leak it and Mika senses it.
“This is not the story we care about, okay?
“The story that women across America and men who love them or men who might like sex care about our fundamental right to abortion that this draft opinion flips, and that’s the story, just for give you a sense of judgment on the news and what people care about, that’s what they care about. Just … I just had to say, I’m sorry.
“It was disgusting, it was disgusting to look at us, to tell us what the story is. Tell the press what the story is, tell us women, who are at the center of this story, our rights, what happens to us, our health care, our daughters, our sisters, our mothers, you will tell us what it is the story, a leak in the Supreme Court. It’s fascinating, it’s unprecedented and there’s a fantastic lead to follow there, and it should be, because it shouldn’t happen. Chief Judge John Roberts even said so. It’s a story, but it’s not the story, okay. Get it right for once in a lifetime.
Amen. And I think Mika knows who leaked the story.
