Leftists are redefining journalism; they're redefining education; they're redefining gender; ... no wonder they want to redefine marriage and redefine our culture.

Again, where have you been?

You are using the Present Participle tense, and you should use the Present Perfect Progressive (ironically): "Leftists have been redefining journalism; have been refining education; and they have been redefining gender."

This is ongoing from quite some time in the past.

I guess this is some kind of grudge? I write things the way I say them on a forum like this. I like the way it "sounds" when you write it, too; it's a great point!

(also, "ongoing from quite some time in the past?" --- puhleeeze!)

We've been through this before, but here we are again. An "objective" reporter was caught on a hot mic today before a Romney event saying, "40 percent chance he'll [Romney] say something stupid." The Huffington Post's Jon Ward posted the following on his Twitter feed:


No surprise, the reporter caught on the feed was Buzz Feed's McKay Coppins. At least he was willing to fess up. Notice him trying to cover for his comments by applauding Romney for the way he handled the event.
