On January 9, Washington Post political writer Ben Terris profiled conservative Sen. James Inhofe and described him as “the country’s most prominent climate-change denier.” A headline announced “Senate’s top climate-change denier is flying high.”
Twenty days later, Terris is shamelessly profiling a liberal senator as terrific presidential material. The headline was “Why Isn’t He Feeling A Draft? Ohio’s Sherrod Brown was Elizabeth Warren before Warren was a Democratic rock star. But don’t bet on him being progressives’ standard-bearer in 2016.” He tweeted approvingly that Ralph Nader agreed with him.
