This is the problem with popular contemporary media thought. Harris intelligently approaches a question that is loaded and useless with skepticism and problem-solving in mind. By showing that the question is not useful, she shows that contemporary thought isn’t useful. That’s why the media wants to pick her apart and can’t: because credentialed ‘experts’ are simply talking heads with sound bites bouncing around inside, and investigative reporters just let the flow of crap as news continue unabated for their advertising/sponsorship revenue (yes, PBS and NPR; that includes you).
The sense-blinded modern American thinks that anything outside of trickle-down consumerism branded ideology is ‘evasive’. Hence the ‘Democratic operatives’ nomenclature and the total informational numbness of the Left and Right’s focus on Trump instead of on American Idiocy as a systemic problem.
