Trump has played the media like a puppet. We’re getting better — but history will not judge us kindly. – The Washington Post

Even if you get past the objectionable notions of “winning” and “losing,” I very much doubt that history will judge mainstream journalism to have done a terrific job covering this president — including in this difficult moment.


It’s not that the press is doing a bad job covering Trump, it’s that they have become a willing participant in the “Trump Show”.
