MSM Easily Forgives You For Not Loving It

Borrowing from Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America, book iii, chapter iv
The mass media easily forgives you for not loving it provided that you don't love each other.
This is a very short warning for the Right:

Should you think that all members of mainstream media are stupid, you will never appreciate how well they dissemble facts and mislead the public by disingenuously composing stories that serve its biases, agendas and hatreds.

The precautionary principle demands that the adage "Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by stupidity" be reversed whenever the MSM is involved. The Left is not stupid: just ask them.

This can be summarized in a single line that I hope helps reunify the Right and stave off further efforts to divide it.
Where you find MSM, never attribute to stupidity what is easily driven by malice.
I would also add, given the propensity of the GOP to abandon its Right, "Watch your back."
