Perhaps intersperse your hard analysis with sections about one or two particular example to contextualize what you are driving towards. Depending on your target audience it could be a Mom and Pop story that is less a heavy news piece and more of a "human interest" angle that illustrates a pragmatic example of your point. Someone that was helped by the effort, for example, and then maybe contrast that with a "but across town" example of someone that was hurt by an initiative.
For example, I remember reading an extremely long read a few years ago about a libertarian public interest law firm called The Institute for Justice. They generally choose sympathetic Mom and Pop type of cases to litigate but the big picture is that they are fighting for big business rights. So the article contextualized their political big picture with the small picture example of the Caswell Motel.
Hope that helps.
