Campaign Finance

Frame conversation framing

Re-framing, Part 2 (Money In Politics Edition)

In a recent post, I wrote about the importance of “framing the conversation.”  I cited a segment on Tucker Carlson’s show in which he debated a Bernie Sanders surrogate over the Green New Deal. In response to my post, a Grok reader added some remarks in the comments section.

Ocasio-Cortez Could See Jail Time for Latest Campaign Finance Scandal

We have a new development in the campaign finance hijinks of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and campaign manager turned chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti.
