Columbia Journalism Review Says Mainstream Corporate Media is Blind to Important News About America’s Left Wing Wave

Primary victory of insurgent Democratic candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York is a conspicuous example.

“Large sections of the U.S. press lack the language to discuss left-wing candidates and issues. Having spent years carefully parsing distinct ideological currents on the right (like “white supremacy” and “white nationalism”), much coverage of the left still leans on disputed labels like “liberal,” “progressive,” and “the Resistance.” Thanks to thoughtful reporting, Americans generally have a substantive understanding of what divides mainstream Republicans and more radical groups like the Tea Party. The divisions between the left and mainstream liberals are just as sharp — and just as consequential— but are not as well understood.” – CJR’s Jon Allsop
