Chris Hayes and Social Distance

I think Digby overlooks the most obvious sign of cognitive capture by Chris Hayes.  The complete lack of any systematic inclusion, analysis, or critique of the media elite in his book.

I have no doubts he’s a sweet well-intentioned guy but the very best and most accessible material for his thesis was staring him right in the face and he failed to cover it.  The fact that now he can be counted among the media elite make him a case study for his own theory.

My fellow liberals will protect him, I’m sure, the way they do Maddow.  But I’ll be watching.
