Rick Shenkman is making some interesting contributions to the study of the psychology of politics. Then there's Politico, which also deserves some scrutiny. Maybe it's only suspicion that small groups of people are exercising untoward control, but Katelyn Fossett's Bernie Sanders mention seems like a case of false balance. Wall St. apparatchiks (what goes around...) actually did crash the economy but no one called them "evil-doers", which would make them terrorists in GW Bush Speak.

The media attempt to equate Sanders and Trump hasn't completely fizzled out though it's obviously completely absurd. Trump gets around eighty times more coverage than Sanders. Maybe if Bernie always called his crowds "comrades" and suggested federal funding for the construction of guillotines we'd be hearing a lot more about him.
