14. Definitely! The grating aspect is that Joe must engineer his play for coverage.

Whereas, media syndicates are actively on the hunt for relatable "conservative" talking points, omitting their contradictions in logic and/or factuality entirely, while progressives must send up emergency flares in hope of coverage. Then, to make matters worse, the media demands that progressives prove an emergency is real before it's allowed exposure onto their "hallowed" dais. And, of course, the progressives' broadcasted lament must always be balanced by the outrageous testimony of select representatives of the opposition. Like, "we have the latest news on a 5-alarm fire in the heart of our city, it's bad and here's the fire chief to give us details, but first, let's hear from the alleged arsonist. Mr. arsonist, why does the fire chief have this vendetta against you?"

I exaggerate? Not much.
