    Drezner distinguishes between public intellectuals who tend toward skepticism about those "One Big Ideas" that explain everything, and "thought leaders," who do the things you describe for fun and profit.

    And of course, the legacy media are a lot more likely to turn to (if not employ) thought leaders instead of public intellectuals. Which is why David Brooks has the job he has.

    This is the way—Biden needs to lean into “yeah I’m an old guy, that’s why I ain’t got time for bullshit” over and over again until the media obsession with his age is fully neutered.

    Martin's argument is a non sequitur. There's nothing hypocritical or illogical about supporting strikers from a company that you don't patronize. Or supporting management. The issues are unconnected.

    Media critics the past 6 years ripping the mainstream press for giving Trump too much air time. Now he's getting too little? Well maybe. Just saying.

    Yeah, that will be a handicap. Immaterial for the GOP primary, but a problem in a general election where he is not awash in excess votes.
