Not without quibbles, but I thought this was basically a good piece on bias against Sanders.

My impressions at the time was that the press coverage—the critical, that is—was coded in a caricature of Millennials as unserious, lazy, and fantasy-driven. Clinton was for adults (Boomers) with long resumés and know-how to apply the same solutions to any given problem. There's almost certainly a lot of my own analytical bias in all that, but the anti-Sanders coverage was generational.

Good read. As you say, not without quibbles, but a better analysis than I've come to expect from self-proclaimed liberals this year.

Frank is definitely on the populist side of modern liberalism.

The Podesta stuff is fascinating — it appears that every annoying know-nothing asshole you ever knew is running the DP/country.

Pretty good. Looks like Assange has probably gone nuts. Still, Podesta emails have been revealing. It's interesting to get a glimpse into how the ruling class operates.
