Not Both Sides Now
Journalists: rather than looking for “both sides,” I'd suggest covering Trump, now, more like a natural disaster than a courtroom drama.— Adam Davidson (@adamdavidson) August 23, 2018
We know he is damaged. Our reporting should be about the extent of the damage and the effectiveness of the response. https://t.co/zV1fuHLWic
