reminder: when NYT broke news Trump had discussed imposing martial law during WH meeting, NYT out story on pg 28, buried it on website
*put story
I wrote this two days before mob riot;…
and no, NYT did not include "martial law" in the headline or in the lede

I still don’t understand all this media heavy breathing abt McConnell and impeachment. all bc anonymous aides say he “supports” it??

folks, if McConnell agrees to bring back Senate for trial on Friday, that’s a big deal.

everything else is just window dressing
as of now, Senate trial will be after Trump leaves office. McConnell can change that if he really supports impeachment

anyone think he will??
$10 says post-Trump impeachment trial McConnell votes no, attacks process as partisan witch hunt

is it a "failure" if it's by design?…
we're 48 months into this and the press just cannot, or will not, grasp the idea that Trump's been waging purposeful war on America

the GOP is not splitting w/ Trump

pls stop writing those stories
there is no “reckoning,” no matter how many times NYT thinks so
If I had to guess right now, I’d say *maybe* 6 GOP votes for impeachment in House out of nearly 200

that NYT Trump Voter story is really remarkable/sad

in the wake of a deadly riot, the paper gives a national platform to people who lie abt everything.

**and the NYT types up their lies as "news"**

borderline inconceivable

“What if the press had taken Trump's coup attempt more seriously over the last two months, instead of waving his strategy off as "performance art" and "bad sportsmanship"?
“What if national media outlets had refused to play any role in the GOP's attempt to denigrate the election process by denying a platform to Republican members of Congress who refused to say Joe Biden had won the election?”

reminder: days after Nov election, DC press was typing up GOP talking points abt how Republicans had GA in the bag.

that didn't make any sense to me 7 weeks ago;…
"Something has clearly changed in the Peach State, as Democrats posted record turnout in counties outside Atlanta. The press ought to respect that and stop assuming Republicans are going to win the Senate before a single runoff vote is counted. "
NYT, WP, and Politico all rushed out stories assuming McConnell would be Senate leader during Biden's first term — they all assumed GA runoffs were layups for GOP
