Fourth Estate: The NY Times and Trump

Matters of Fact
Episode 4  |  SBS  |  September 24, 2018

The Times continues to follow where the Russia investigation leads, as Michael Flynn pleads guilty to lying to the FBI, and the reporters dig deeper on the obstruction of justice case Robert Mueller might be building against the President. The paper takes stock of its coverage of Trump, and 2018 brings both new revelations and rewards for the hard work of covering 2017. For all the attacks on the free press over the course of Trump's first year in office, the paper is rewarded for what it does best: good reporting.
