I would love to know if there's been introspection within the Washington Post newsroom about that botched Elizabeth Warren piece.

Reporters will make mistakes. I've made more than my share. We can't expect perfection, but it is important to demand that they do better next time.

Every single reporter who is asking Democratic Twitter to respect their news judgment when they cover Democratic candidates should first be required to explain why the 2016 coverage of Hillary Clinton's Emails was bad and how they will do better next time.

@mikiebarb That's a fair point.

Political reporters are also going to have to accept that they so torched trust between themselves and Democrats with their #ButHerEmails coverage that any minor story that is slightly damaging to a Dem will be put on blast.

now there s a hair trigger that sets off a nuclear reaction from dem operatives and even from liberal journos
@RachelLarris @jbarroNow there's a hair trigger that sets off a nuclear reaction from Dem operatives -- and even from liberal journos -- because there's a sense that every minor story could become Her Emails.

It's a toxic dynamic all around. But it's the fault of the bad editorial calls made in 2016

@RachelLarris @jbarroPolitical operatives have worked the refs since newspapers stopped being party organs. It used to be that Dem operatives would ignore certain stories because they were not that important. But after , #ButHerEmails bad reporters can turn anything into a world-destroying scandal...

@jbarro The problem is trust between Democrats and the press was destroyed by #ButHerEmails. Every minor story that is slightly damaging to a candidate is viewed with fear because Dems no longer trust outlets to give an the appropriate amount of attention to minor-but-newsworthy stories.

Too many editors are so accustomed to dealing with bad faith attacks on journalism from the right that they do not comprehend the rage that Democrats still feel over the incompetent #ButHerEmails coverage in 2016.

@AdamSerwer FWIW, I think liberals would be wise to let Barr win on nationwide injunctions before Trump leaves office, because if SCOTUS doesn’t forbid them soon, Trump judges will hand them out like candy during the next Democratic presidency.

Leaving SCOTUS now.

Court looks likely to vote along party lines to allow Trump to rig the Census. Roberts’ questions were less clear than other Republicans, but he did not seem sympathetic to challengers.

1) I wrote about a really bizarre attack on the First Amendment by three Republican federal judges.

The case involves and Black Lives Matter -- and the more I think about it the more it troubles me about America's slide into authoritarianism.

It's been a rough few years. So I think it's important that we take a moment every now and then to remind ourselves we almost had a president who used a personal email account to conduct work business. Thank you to every reporter who worked so tirelessly to prevent that outcome.

In related news, the case for court-packing just got much stronger. If Roberts will tolerate lawbreaking this egregious in a voting rights case, our elections will soon be uncompetitive.

It's weird to see Democrats running for president who think that, once Trump is defeated, Mitch McConnell will be so grateful that the black stain is cast out of our land that he will reward Trump's vanquisher by allowing them to confirm even a single cabinet secretary or judge.
