Hillary Clinton, Tracy Flick, and the Reclaiming of Female Ambition
The Atlantic: "Election is unique, and uniquely resonant, because of the premise its title suggests: It depicts a woman who is not just passively occupying political office, but actively striving for it."

"In America, you prove your worthiness for power by proving your lack of desire for that power. If you are a woman, you have an added challenge: You must prove that you will use the power you want-but-don’t-want to act on behalf of everyone but yourself."

What frustrated Obama and his staff was the knowledge that, in large measure, they were reaching their own people but no further. They spoke to the networks and the major cable outlets, the major papers and the mainstream Web sites, and, in an attempt to find people “where they are,” forums such as Bill Maher’s and Samantha Bee’s late-night cable shows, and Marc Maron’s podcast. But they would never reach the collective readerships of Breitbart News, the Drudge Report, WND, Newsmax, InfoWars, and lesser-knowns like Western Journalism—not to mention the closed loop of peer-to-peer right-wing rumor-mongering.

White Nationalism's Deep American Roots
"The most benignly intentioned mainstream-media coverage of demographic change in the U.S. has a tendency to portray as justified the fear and anger of white Americans who believe their political power is threatened by immigration—as though the political views of today’s newcomers were determined by genetic inheritance rather than persuasion."

On the Media: Kathleen Belew
"White power" conveys the radical future envisioned by the white nationalism movement.
The point of wn violent attacks are not to be the end point but to awaken the broader public to a race war.
Rather than reporting on individual incidents with separate "isms," report as all connected by the same ideology. Connect the dots, around the world --> don't rely on the lone wolves; create a different conversation about the problem, causes and solutions.
She "profoundly disagrees that we should not talk about this violence." It is a political ideology. We should name each gunman because the historical project is to connect these acts of violence.
"This movement WANTS us not to understand it as a movement." "The term lone wolf was coined by people in this movement in order to muddy the waters." Even focusing on "cells" overlooks the deeply connected movement.

We Need to Talk About the Media’s Complicity in Violence Against Immigrants
"I want white journalists in particular to ask themselves before publishing or sharing this type of content: Am I aiding in dehumanization? Am I aiding in normalizing the brutalization of immigrant communities?"
"As this cycle plays out in our daily news feeds, accompanied by media that peddles in tragedy, enthusiastically publishing photos of dead brown and Black bodies and distressed children, we need to ask: At what point are we complicit? At what point are journalists doing Trump’s dirty work, aiding in the normalization of violence against immigrants and stripping them of their humanity? This media is not “inspiring change”; this media merely inspires page clicks and potentially more violence."
