It All Came Together Against Chesa Boudin

Patrick Redford: “If it seems strange to blame the DA and only the DA for problems so obviously outside of his purview, it is because it is in fact very strange to do that. But it is not hard to know why it happened: a good deal of the anger towards Boudin is the product of a well-funded and highly coordinated media campaign that, like any successful campaign of that kind, didn’t just push a narrative but create its own emotional reality.”
