Of course @politico knows that writing "scramble" in its headline implies the Democratic candidates are being disingenuous panderers, a stupid premise given that no one doubts all the Democrats running for POTUS earnestly oppose the bill

Stuff like this is why so many hate media

1/ Apparently @politico is convinced that if its headline merely says "Dems Denounce Alabama Abortion Bill" you won't read it (and maybe they're right, but even if so, you know what? *do journalism anyway*, @politico)

2/ Imagine a Sorkin show that, unlike The Newsroom—which all too often glossed over the *small* things media does daily that violate journalistic ethics—instead systematically took the corporate media model to task for daily falling short of principles US journalism once embraced
