I propose that obvious propaganda be termed "Political Porn."
This is a LOADED piece meant to sound neutral.
Here are the facets that stand out most in their veiled effort to reinforce Establishment memes. Remember how the "Do not touch: Wet Paint" sign operates? Many people will touch it. There's also this idea that there's no such thing as BAD publicity. Add in "lies told often," or George Lakoff's reminder that when you use the "enemy's frame" to defend yourself, what people hear is a repeat of that same frame. THAT is what sticks. I presume the writer knows all this:
"Sanders supporters believe an arcane and biased nomination process will hand Clinton the nomination and leave the party with a candidate whose private email-server activities are still under FBI investigation and who was publicly rebuked by the State Department for breaking rules and putting her personal privacy above national security."
By framing obvious GRAFT under the guise that "Sanders supporters believe..." the intention is to essentially suck the air out of the true nature of this fraudulent election charade.
"Clinton supporters and DNC leadership believe Sanders is a spoiler who must concede—yesterday."
Appearing "fair and balanced," what's really going on is reinforcing the frame of Sanders AS spoiler. Thus the subliminal message is that Hillary has already claimed the throne and it's hers!
"Conventional wisdom suggests Clinton needn't worry about earning their votes and must now pivot right. As the first woman presidential nominee, they believe her message of being "qualified" and "ready to lead on Day 1" combined with amassing opposition research and offering a steady stream of attacks on Donald Trump will deliver her to the Oval Office."
Who is the author or source of this purported "conventional wisdom"?
Again, this is a paean to establishment punditry aimed at securing the Oval Office for what many here term "the red queen."
