From this morning, with your indulgence …
Great work on the news that broke overnight. There are many reasons why I’ve read TPM since the post-Brooks Brothers Riot days, and why I finally ponied up and subscribed to Prime (and then AF), but last night (or this morning, in my case) is as good an illustration as any.
Great synthesis of available reporting by the Post and Times by Tierney, and then the picking apart and meta-analysis of those stories by Josh in the Editor’s Brief to get at how what is being said and what is not being said (or reported) and how really tells the story. I went to one of the best journalism/communications schools in the country (am now a reformed newspaper employee practicing law) so when I see this kind of analysis of the reporting process and what that analysis reveals about what is one of a very few landmark constitutional crises in our nation’s history, I am grateful for TPM and your staff.
Like any good organization, TPM is always in some process of transition and becoming. But this time is particularly so. We are trying to deepen our focus as we continue our business transition to a membership focus. Thank you for noticing.
