Big scoop from @katie_robertson : "The New YorkPost’s front-page article about Hunter Biden on Wednesday was written mostly by a staff reporter who refused to put his name on it, two Post employees said."

The idea of muting during the debate, pro or con, is such a perfect miniature of the entire Trump-era debate about how he should be covered and by extension how social platforms should handle him.

I wonder what they would call this if farmers were predominantly Black and lived in blue states.

It’s not just using tax dollars to prop up your base, although it is definitely that. It’s using blue-state tax dollars to subsidize red states’ self-mythology as the ruggedly individual “true America” — cultural as well as economic protectionism.

From @jaketapper ⁩ : Trump’s CoS and other Trumpworld figures said to be pushing Pentagon to award lucrative contract to company owned by Karl Rove and other GOP investors.

This @adamnagourney  story has the great virtue of very simply boiling down the the electoral math and other questions to explain how Trump may win the presidency again next month.

This @BuzzFeed story on an internal WSJ review of their own digital & other struggles has so many echoes with the Times' 2014 "Innovation Report," including the report leaking first to BuzzFeed.

New FEC disclosures show a single large RNC payment of $94,800 to Books-a-Million in October, a few days before "Triggered" was released. An RNC spokesman confirmed that the expenditure was connected to their promotion of Don Trump Jr.'s book.

Folks: The New York Times needs your help. We’re looking for false information being spread deliberately to confuse, mislead, or influence voters ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Tipline here; please share!

Just a reminder that Twitter didn’t censor or limit Trump’s tweet. They just added a little note saying “here’s some more information.” The nuclear response from WH should tell you something about Trump’s campaign strategy.

Trump, about his then-newborn son, Don Jr: “What if he’s a loser?” Biden, to his troubled adult son, whose mistakes threatened to torpedo Biden’s highest political ambition: “Good morning my beautiful son.” Two very different men.

Obama’s campaign, not Obama personally, paid a fine for what was essentially late or accidentally erroneous paperwork on a large number of small contributions. Cohen and the president personally engaged in a deliberate scheme to hide a payoff and lie about it.

I never met any Russians. The meeting was about adoptions. Okay, about Clinton oppo. It was just one Russian. Well, two. Hillary did it.

If my signature had to match every time, I would not only not ever be allowed to vote, I'd never be allowed to use a credit card ever again.
