“You Know, You’re a Nasty Guy.”



David Farenthold, one of the few national campaign reporters who could emerge with his or her held high, one what it was like to cover Trump properly.

The fact that the Clinton Foundation — a philanthropic organization that has saved millions of lives and entailed no significant misconduct by the Clintons despite the very real potential for conflicts of interest — received considerably more sustained critical coverage than the Trump Foundation — a straight-up grift — is, in a nutshell, the story of the coverage of the 2016 campaign. Whether it was motivated by animus towards Clinton, an implicit assumption that Clinton should be treated as the president-elect, or the need to find false equivalence, a lot of vulnerable people are going to suffer because most campaign journalists failed massively. Kudos to Farenthold for actually practicing journalism.
