Years ago, I noticed that in US public discourse, it's normal for all sides to be wrong.

Take Trump's decision to not retaliate against Iran for shooting down a reconnaissance drone.

Tucker Carlson is wrong.

Every time we've used limited military force against Iran, they haven't responded.

So a series of air strikes would not have led to war.

Also, the aircraft were not in the air when Trump decided to not retaliate.

He never gave permission for the strikes to be carried out.

CNN's Samantha Vinograd is wrong.

Again, Trump did not make a decision and then change his mind.

He called together his national-security group, got a casualty estimate, and decided that it wasn't necessary to kill 150 Iranians at this point.

Another pattern I notice is the hubbub about what Trump did or did not do gets more attention than whatever Trump ended up do or not do. This is the part where Trump can mess with the media.

Now these media types who are used to be able to see via leaks what exactly is going on in the administration are losing it.

Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
