How Linda Greenhouse of the NYT uses ‘notion’ and ‘instinctive’ to deprecate free expression

A notion is a lightweight mental sensation. Instinct pulses from our lower brain. We may have these notions and instincts UNTIL we “consider… florists and bakers,” but “consider” implies some serious contemplation, and Greenhouse’s use of “until” suggests that she thinks that the instant we see the names of those lowly occupations — florists and bakers — we will shake off the notions and instincts and know that the “expression” template is wrong. But she hasn’t considered it, and she doesn’t expect her readers to consider it. She is whipping up snobbery for people who are engaged in expressive work.

Althouse on McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission

Quoting NYT:

The decision, by a 5-to-4 vote along ideological lines, was sort of a sequel to Citizens United, the 2010 decision that struck down limits on independent campaign spending by corporations and unions. But that ruling did nothing to disturb the other main form of campaign finance regulation: caps on direct contributions to candidates and political parties.

Via “The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued a major campaign finance decision, striking down limits on federal campaign contributions for the first time.” @ Althouse.
