One thing that troubles me about Maggie is how credulous she is about how aloof Trump is. I think that if instead of being a very talented journalist she'd been a very talented public defender, she'd understand how *frequently* longtime criminals play with aloofness as a defense.
PS/ I know many people have a problem with Maggie; often I do too. But I also was a criminal investigator for a period of time, so I know how difficult it is, and how incredibly skilled you have to be, just to get people to talk to you when it's not necessarily in their interest.
PS2/ I think, when I put my journalism professor hat on, Maggie could do a better job of striking a balance between access and incisiveness and independence, but also think we're being naive if we say there isn't often a significant tension between those 3 journalistic skillsets.
