Who is centrist? What is the center?
Good article showing that corporate media has shaped how we define the center. AOC, Sanders and Warren are depicted as far left, usually with a warning that we need to be more in the middle. But the fact is that the progressive agenda is where most Americans are, i.e., the real American center. Polls repeatedly show that majorities approve of progressive polices like the Green New Deal, higher minimum wages, making the rich pay their fair share of taxes, Medicare For All, free college, gun control and so on. Do not accept the anti-progressive framing. Frame it correctly using facts: Progressive policies are the real center where most Americans reside.
