That's right, @maggieNYT, the revelation that Don called his dad's Russia-loving best friend right after talking to a Kremlin agent about colluding "refutes" the argument that *at any point in the ensuing year he told his dad about that conversation*

What editor let this happen
@maggieNYT 2/ When a nihilistic cabal of far-right lunatics led by the Trumps is cynically destroying our understanding of diction, causation, common sense, proof, truth, and clear communication, one thing you absolutely *don't* do at the New York Times or anywhere else is lazily play along
@maggieNYT 3/ What happened here is that Maggie decided Trump hadn't had a "win" for awhile, and that if this story, which is devastating for Trump, wasn't spun as a "win" Trump and his allies would be livid at the NYT and say not nice things about their coverage, maybe hurting sales a bit.
@maggieNYT 4/ To be clear, I'm not trying to get inside Maggie's head with this analysis, I'm saying that the way that NYT story is written confirms the metanarrative behind its authorship and editing had to do with a political "horse race" that bears no relationship to a journalist's duty.
