What I meant by this, specifically, is that people like Ryan Lizza have been listening to versions of the basic Left Critique of political media coverage, the details of which change but with fairly consistent contours, for decades now. And they constantly respond by straw manning it various ways. I don't chalk this up to misunderstanding. It's deliberate. 

One benefit of twitter is you can see how they ignore the substance of any critique while pretending, "OH LIBERALS JUST WANT NICE STORIES ABOUT BIDEN" or in this case, "You fools don't understand how political coverage works, and I am going to lie in a completely transparent way about how it actually does work" (which, even if it was true, is very bad and you should change that!).

 Not sure who the audience for these lies is meant to be!
