But if Medium is going to promote political writing — especially at a time like this — it must hire some fact checkers and actual journalists to screen those stories it decides to promote before it bestows them on an impressionable public.

Bless you for this.

When I joined Medium, inexplicably, because I had certain not asked for them nor indicated any political preference, my feed was jammed with articles from a well-known leftist agitprop site which has, for years, had a problematic relationship with the truth.

It was only after a painstakingly long period during which I blocked all of their writers (and it seems like they have thousands) did they stop appearing in my feed.

When it comes to commenting on Matters Political, I am as guilty as the next person, perhaps more so. That said, it would be nice to read some talented writing now and again. The Political Primal Screams have a tendency to wear one out after awhile.
