Note the interpolations. I added them to highlight a point that one can miss without a close reading: the Clinton campaign is only “working with blogger and columnists to write” specific things from specific perspectives. This is not, that is to say, journalists coming up with their own takes and then pursuing them in an interview – it’s textbook scoop laundering.The emerging defense here seems to be that scoop laundering is actually normal and good. Suffice to say that this isn’t the position Olivia Nuzzi took when she was “pitched a story about bernie bros by Hillary’s camp”.
Maybe I would buy into “bernie bros” more if I hadn’t been pitched a story about bernie bros by Hillary’s camp.

Here’s the draft, which I edited and can personalize depending on who we want to use as an author. A survivor of gun violence? An advocate or family member? If we can find someone, and if folks want, we could get this posted today to Medium in someone’s name (not us).
