Harris successfully avoided taking a potentially controversial position. But she also reinforced her preexisting reputation for evasiveness: I heard from several high-level Democratic operatives that the exchange reminded them of Harris’s habit of dodging critical questions during her presidential campaign.
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.
