Right message, wrong messenger: NYT’s Peter Baker decries the ‘normalization’ of Trump’s presidency

At the New York Times, the ‘Democracy Team’ is outnumbered and outgunned

Activating a “Democracy Team” -- like the Times did -- doesn’t do much good if the rest of the newsroom is on Team Impunity.

The repeal of Roe has vast consequences, but the news coverage is constrained

An enormous, course-altering social change is now officially on the brink of happening, and they blither about process?

Don’t forget for a minute this was his own damn fault

It’s not gloating for political reporters to regularly point out that this could have been avoided if Trump had taken the obvious and proper precautions that he petulantly and ignorantly chose not to.
