Politico Reporter is Hooked on Folksy

  • SHARES

By Betsy Rothstein Comment

Politico‘s senior political reporter Jonathan Martin (more often known as JMart) is the least “folksy” guy around — i.e. no one can relate to him or finds him “normal” on television or always understandable on Twitter — and yet he employs the folksy “folks” constantly. He even likes retweet those who use folks.

Let’s check out the excessive folksiness, shall we?
