my latest—this is how we got here; pressrun.media/p/why-on-earth…
I know for a fact Jeff Zucker was not calling the Clinton campaign in 2016 to butter them up, offer debate advice, and float the idea of a “weekly show” for her
it’s another layer of sexism—Zucker schmoozes the Trump team boys as they discuss backroom deals.
these were some of the CNN Q’s posed to Trump at town hall:

•"What do you eat when you roll up at a McDonald's, what does - what does Donald Trump order?"
•"What's your favorite kind of music?"
•"How many hours a night do you sleep?"
•"What kind of a parent are you?"

my latest—still clinging to Both Sides; pressrun.media/p/the-ginsburg…
“Still clinging to the idea that the GOP is filled with honorable men, the press won’t tell the truth about today's radical Republican Party. “
“Instead of being honest, the press has wasted four years pretending behind closed doors that leaders of the Republican Party are aghast at Trump's un-democratic and corrupt behavior.

there’s no way Senate can hold confirmation hearings and vote before Election Day

this would have to be a Lame Duck session move—obviously unprecedented in US history
imagine what kind of unethical person under *those* circumstances would even accept such a tainted nomination
for last 10 nominations, the average time confirmation took *from day of announcing nominee* was 70 days.

election is in 45 days

sigh, this is the problem with fact-checking Trump and Biden together. Trump lies non-stop abt everything, Biden is dinged for a slight exaggeration.

**these two things are not similar** and shouldn't be treated that way by AP; msn.com/en-us/news/pol…
this is what happens when media refuses to call Trump a "liar"

ha, this is def new campaign angle— Trump trails in virtually every swing state poll but that’s bad news for Biden bc Trump leads one specific topic of economy; nbcnews.com/politics/2020-…
this is what people point to when they wonder if press is desperate for a horse race
have you seen *one* article re: what GOP voters are “nervous” about?

“The sad part is that over the years Trump has learned he can lie about 9/11 with impunity from the press”
in 2016 if Hillary lied abt 9/11, NYT would’ve demanded she drop out of the race

when Trump told blatant lies, NYT claimed his facts were “fuzzy”
