Naming them barbarians exempts us from having to deal with their ideas. And what our world, and most particularly the Muslim world right now, needs is people who can reason with the supporters of ISIS, who can deal with their ideas.

For the first six months of the Democratic primary, the media -- including the New York Times and Washington Post -- relished writing everything they could to hurt the Clinton campaign. But now everything has changed.
