Journalistic quandry: You want to call something improper or illegal, but it isn’t. In fact, it is entirely normal.
The Washington Post put this in my email.
The article contains this gem:
So, the writer notes that the action is legally defensible. But it raises fresh questions about the president’s commitment to the rule of law.
Now, I’m no hotshot Washington Post writer, but if something is legal, it really does not raise fresh questions about a commitment to the rule of law. Actually, doing things legally reinforces a commitment to the rule of law.
The crap about the campaign is just unrelated junk. Only the weak-minded and Trump-haters will fall for this.
These headlines raise fresh questions about the Washington Post writers’ ability to tell their asses from their elbows.
The American people are increasingly walking away from news sources like the Washington Post, exactly because of this nonsense.
