Democrats Are PANICKING Over Bad 2020 Candidates, Ask "Is There Anybody Else?" The Democratic party is fractured between moderate and far left, Trump has raised a record amount of money, and Moody's analytics shows Trump takes 2020 victory in all three projections. So what can they do? At a recent event Democrats desperately tried to come up with a solution. Michelle Obama? Hillary Clinton? Eric Holder? The Democratic establishment knows that it doesn't have any strong contenders to defeat Donald Trump and the panic was on display as reported by the New York Times. Id the far left democrats won't vote for a moderate and a moderate won't vote for a socialist what can they do? It's easy Three simple words "Orange Man bad" Democrats are planning to use negative partisanship to drive voter turnout in 2020. This means that instead of focusing on core issues and policy they will focus on why Trump is bad. The goal is to inspire voters based on hating Trump above anything else. In truth it may work. Moody's says that with a historical voter turnout Democrats win 2020 by 9 electoral votes. But that is the exception not the rule and right now its a desperate long shot.

Journalists FURIOUS Over Democrat's Pro Union Law Effectively ENDING Freelance Journalism (UPDATE). Yesterday I covered a law that was pushed by Democrats in California to protect jobs and defend unions. The conflict is centered around freelance journalists being told they can only write 35 articles per yer for a company, effectively ending freelance journalism outright. Journalists have been waging an online feud with the Democrat who pushed the bill stating that she was going to cost them their financial security and would harm the news industry. Democrat Lorena Gonzales pushed back saying it will protect good newsroom jobs and pressure companies to hire freelancers. In reality, newsrooms are collapsing, mass layoffs are commonplace, and digital journalism has been at the front of the line in terms of collapse. This law will only expedite the end to which we see these digital media outlets by forcing them to cut off the people producing their content. If a digital outlet can't afford to hire someone and now they can not legally buy from third parties then they will struggle to produce content, make no money, and eventually collapse. This law is only in California so it mostly affects CA based writers and freelancers, but if this mentality around gig economy jobs continues it could spell the end for the modern digital news industry. Some argue this could be a good thing, bringing the end of content mills and fake news. But it could also cause journalists to become more desperate and escalate the hyperbolic, hyperpartisan, and far left activist journalism content leading to a worse political divide. As we have seen with the Veritas leaks, not even CNN is safe from the hyperpartisan nature of news. Outrage rules all and the culture war is an easy outrage generator.
