For the Record: Why It's Complicated With The New York Times


Drawing by Jack Ohman, April 2020.

Got into a Twitter dustup with Peter Baker and Maggie Haberman, not exactly a dustup from the technical standpoint, and I still yield to no one in my perverse fondness for Maggie, but this concern for whether Biden is holding press conferences or not is bogus. Baker and Haberman don't even perform for press conferences—no camera around when they're doing their questioning...

I think about that sometimes, in particular one interview in the Atlantic, in maybe 2019, with Jeffrey Goldberg, because I knew I had some serious disagreements with him (over Israel, obviously, and Iran, for instance), but the interplay was so adult.
