Live from the Journamalists' Self-Made Gehenna: Yet Another Maggie Haberman/New York Times in the tank edition:
Does anybody think that this from New York Times "reporter" Maggie Haberman:
1. Is true in its claim that Donald Trump has tried to shift attention away from Alicia Machado with his 5 AM attack tweets?
- Is fair in its presentation of Trump's remarks about Ms. Machado as merely composed of: "descriptions of a Miss Universe winner (he used to own the pageant) as overweight?
And this raises three very natural questions:
What is Mr. Baquet's theory of journamalism according to which this is not the way to bankruptcy?
What is Ms. Haberman's theory of journamalism according to which this is not the way to end one's career?
Why isn't anybody at 620 Eighth Avenue yelling, screaming, banging on the walls, and saying: "there gotta be some changes made!"?
