24. I'm not watching

but *what* exactly is our "messaging problem"? We deal with facts and substance and literal real-world evidence. I get that that might not be "fun" or "sexy" or anywhere near as "entertaining" as one of Trump's tantrums or Rudy's antics or Doug Collins ranting like an auctioneer in committee, but at least we deal with reality and real-world facts and not delusions and theatrics. While there are certainly instances where we maybe need to communicate better, reality appears to be an incredibly difficult thing for a lot of people to understand/grasp, esp. when they are constantly bombarded by Trump, Fox News, and a succession of AM Radio Hosts whom eschew all nuance and parrot simple and easy, black-or-white views of the world and entertaining conspiracy theories about the "Deep State" that may sound riveting to people in their mundane lives but bears no resemblance to reality. The problem is that that sort of thing is what is being marketed to people and that's what sells. Not reality. Not facts. Not Democratic "messaging".
