NYT Tells Readers That a Mother "Seems" Delighted That Her Daughter Was Elected to Congress

This is worth noting because the NYT is so anxious to tell readers what politicians actually believe about the deficit, Social Security, and other issues. It is much easier to accept that Pat Courtney was actually delighted about her daughter Kathy Hochul's election to Congress than that most politicians believe the things they say about government policy.

(Hat tip to Ben Ross.)

Politicians already believe what reporters actually observe so there is no inconsistency between the underlying deductive and inductive revelation of facts that emerge from the potential fog of seeming misperceptions.
