They haven't been trying ever since they begun backing Trump, as the daily hypocrisy was just far too obvious and glaring to defend. So they stopped trying to explain or defend it, descending into Orwellian double-speak seamlessly.

For pan loafs, I heavily butter the tin, which has it's own non-stick patina on it as well. I remove the bread from the tin as soon as it is out of the oven, turned out onto a cooling rack.

The only time I flour as well as butter is for cake, or batter breads, as PAstrychef lists.
