.@maggieNYT This is such a disingenuous, performatively self-pitying stance to take. Of COURSE you dictate what people should care about. You’re still the nation’s premier newspaper, and column inches are limited. You choose what stories get oxygen, and how they’re framed.
Last July, when you wrote that Jared and Ivanka were “ready to make a more visible push for their projects,” were you reporting real news? Or were you dictating what people should care about? (In that case, an image-repairing narrative for two sources?)…
Judith Miller and the @nytimes helped legitimize the narrative of Iraq’s WMDs. You and your colleagues did the same with the Clinton email server, elevating that story in the national conversation. What news was buried in back pages, or killed outright, to make room?
What did your editors decide people shouldn’t care about as much?

Look, you’re 2nd-generation @nytimes – you know what the paper can do. You may stand by your choices, but don’t pretend you haven’t made them.
