  1. Might not “Blood and soil in Narendra Modi’s India” seem more objective if it elucidated the Pakistani military’s ongoing terrorism program in Kashmir? Downplaying such factors might be taken as evidence suggesting a hit job …

    • I agree with you about Pakistan, but rather than a hit job I’d argue that the idea never crossed the New Yorker staffer’s mind. Much of the Left’s decline throughout the democratic world can be traced back to sheer ignorance. Now, whether or not this ignorance is obstinate or not is up for debate. I’d argue that the Left’s thought leaders believe it’s better to pursue a Noble Lie, but that the rank-and-file (such as our New Yorker correspondent) never even consider the tough stuff.

Please keep it civil
