Do they talk to each other and coordinate their message before they send out to print?

I think both sides paint a dark version of the country if the other side prevails.

Interesting to see how they all choose to use the exact same adjective in the headline.....
What an absolutely amazing coincidence.

How many other common terms might be used here in lieu of "dark"?  It's a very common term.  As to whether the messenging is dark or not is another story.


  • dim, dingy, murky, shadowy, shady, sunless, unlit.
  • black, dark-skinned, dusky, ebony, sable, swarthy.
  • gloomy, bleak, dismal, grim, morose, mournful, sad, somber.
  • evil, foul, infernal, sinister, vile, wicked.
  • secret, concealed, hidden, mysterious.

As I said, it might not really be "dark", but the term is pretty common, so I don't think it takes much for different outlets to use it without any coordination.

They could term it bleak or dismal I suppose.

I have watched zero seconds of either convention, so I won't try and characterize either.  Well, I did see part of Biden's speech because the wife had it on, the one where he stared into the prompter with eyes that looked like he had been drugged.

These headlines may get written before the convention starts, dunno.

The MSM talking points are the same as they all get them directly from the DNC.

Why no outcry on the MSM using such a racist term “dark” certainly has racial connotations
