For the Washington Post and the New York Times, everything is always and only about race.

WaPo writer Paul Waldman asks a big question about the upcoming mid-terms elections.  He believes – or, is at least spreading the fear-mongering rumor – that the Republicans are about to get their heads handed to them on a platter.  So, what will their strategy be?

To answer that question, he walks outside his office, finds actual members of the GOP, and asks them a series of probing questions.  Oops.  Strike that.  That would require actual journalism. To answer that, he relies on an article in the New York Times written by Jeremy W. Peters.  Peters writes that members of the Republican Party are “taking their cues from President Trump” by “embracing messages with explicit appeals to racial anxieties and resentment. The result is making racial and ethnic issues and conflicts central in the November elections in a way that’s far more explicit than the recent past.”

Wait, what?
