Maybe we should reflect on what institutions' "agenda-setting power" has brought us? 1. Iraq has WMDs 2. Hillary Clinton's email practices are extremely important 3. Trump is a joke who will never win the GOP nomination

POLITICO is turning 15. What I believed in 2007: Journalism was in an entrepreneurial age, not an institutional one. What I hope now: That institutions reclaim agenda-setting power, while keeping the disruptive spirit of the past generation. #POLITICO15

2. One opportunity right now is that many people have effectively given up on the idea that COVID will not be a disruptive force in their day-to-day lives. If that's not the case sometime soon-ish (I have no idea) it will help Biden.

1. In politics, perception = reality - expectations. Biden is unpopular right now because he set expectations too high and underdelivered. Some of that was self-inflicted and some it was out of his control. If he tempers expectations and overperforms, he'll get more popular.

Asked Manchin about Democrats accusing him of undermining Biden agenda. "We've come from different areas. It's not just all urban, metropolitan areas. Those of us who come from rural areas, and there's a complete different constituency that we all serve."

One reason @ATT does this is it is used to no one paying attention. If you are interested in this tweet, you'll be very interested in my newsletter, which is dedicated to independent accountability journalism. And it's free to sign up -->

@ATT @DadePhelan On December 20, @ATT donated $50,000 to the Texas Senate Republicans, who also passed the state's abortion ban. This money also came directly from @ATT 's corporate treasury. The company is rewarding politicians who ban abortion and enforce the ban with vigilantes
