It's hyper-important to remember that the Times and the others still do great journalism even though they do dumb [expletive] sometimes with Trump headlines and coverage. The Times has some really incredible reporters at the top of their profession. They have some very good opinion writers. They suffer from a problem where they are treating the Trump era as a downturn--a sort of "we've been through stuff like this before and will again and therefore we will just go on covering the news the way we always have"--and that's a little bit of a challenge but they still are the gold standard. They still blew the lid off #metoo. They still got us the most we've seen of a Trump tax return. They still are The Paper Of Record. I get if people disenfranchised by them are looking to cancel or are non-readers, but those folks should be paying for another reader-supported piece of journalism, because [expletive] about the media but getting all your information off blogs or GRB or Twitter is just plain disingenuous.
