Russell, this argument which you keep making does not make sense.

There's no tight coupling.  It's like asserting that because Clinton speaks at some university commencement ceremony, he is a student or alum there and / or that he admired, agreed with, and so on by all or even most of the student body and / or faculty.  Similarly for some "journalist" that covers the address.

It's an invalid inference.  But a convenient one that you have apparently been sold by biased parties desperate to marginalize and discredit --- or sensationalize for their own benefit --- whatever is happening.

You are source filtering in the worst way.  Engage the content.  Clarity about the associations DOES NOT EXIST today.
