On Thursday night, while participating in the sort of navel-gazing, hand-wringing panel discussion that has become even more prevalent in the Trump-era media world, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet lamented how he’s “spent full days policing our social media.” The paper’s coverage shouldn’t be seen as part…
Flood waters are receding in Houston after the historic rainfall from Hurricane Harvey earlier this month. But the water itself was not the only threat. Flooding breached dozens of waste treatment centers, sending a deluge of bacteria throughout the city. The New York Times reports on the victims of the bacterial…

The Presidential Horse Race is a uniquely American spectacle, but unless you live in one of the (sparsely populated) early caucus states, you probably haven’t gotten to experience it first hand.
