24. Come on!

That was a serious and necessary expose. We need to know that they are our neighbors and the people who will let you go ahead of them in the check out line. Exposing the fact that the stereotype does not hold is important because we have to know that the ideology and people who support it are masked and present all around us.
The tragedy of cable news is that it has been feeding people what they want to hear for so long that people don't recognize real journalism anymore.

4. No, I saw an interview w that reporter and he did his best to kiss Trumps ass and use his framing

 

Instead of using a reality based context- he spoke of his successes (not singular- the tax bill) and stumbled and trailed off before anything got negative. Said Trumpnis “his own best salesman” and studiously avoided any negatives. He gave him access to use him- and it worked. Now he wants more.

12. Schmidt is allegedly a professional journalist for the self-styled newspaper of record

He should be able to think up a question on the fly. His colleague Maggie Haberman leapt to Schmidt's defense, saying that Schmidt didn't want to "challenge" the president or some such nonsense. But Schmidt didn't have to challenge anyone. When Trump was blathering on about how every Democrat has exonerated him and agreed that he's being victimized by a witch hunt, Schmidt could have nodded and said, "Every Democrat; I must have missed that. Can you tell me who told you that? Anyone in particular that I might have heard of?"

Instead, Schmidt sat there as silent as a court stenographer at a deposition, never following up. I don't think Schmidt is on Trump's payroll, but he sure acted like his paycheck depended on keeping Trump dumb and happy.

It is mind blowing that he is so incompetent and unfit for office.

Republicans should be ashamed of themselves for allowing such a man to occupy the office of President. He is totally unfit
and represents a clear and present danger to the country.

'interviews'...so really this is all they can get and it's good enough.

It really gets me ill how quickly people just turn...now I'm hearing that the NY Times is a piece of trash because of some thing or things they don't agree with. They sound just like trashbag tRUMP...and these folks are supposed to be liberals!

Mango Mussolini!! I love it.

(and BTW: I met Sen. Wellstone at a Constituent dinner in a small town in Northern Minnesota back in early 90's. I remember i kept thinking, wow, I'm having dinner with one of only 100 Senators in the country!! It was awesome!! And think about it, how many Senators go around their state and have dinner with constituents. It was at a local hotel about 20-30 of us showed up.)

37. What's even more remarkable

Is that by those numbers that showed up alone, that should reasonably tell him he's not getting the bang out of his outstate traveling buck.

But Wellstone didn't care about playing to loyal metro constituencies. He acted like he represented ALL of Minnesota.

He can't answer a policy question... he's too stupid.

They don't want to get in the way of a train wreck.

But yes, the standard is abysmally low and the double standard is duly noted.

21. There is a double standard, but I think the reporter may have been trying to give him enough rope.

We'll see, but this may be the kind of interview that comes back to haunt Trump later, because there is so much outright lying and blathering nonsense. In fact, maybe it wasn't really an interview, just a recordation.

25. Charlie Pierce says the same thing in his latest column.

Pierce cuts the NYT reporter some slack for not asking hard-hitting questions, and instead views the interview for the gift that it is: trump is clearly exhibiting mental deterioration of the most profound sort. Not even the Republicans are going to be able to prop him up for much longer. trump's dumbass base may cling to him, but no politician who values their job security will make that mistake.

trump makes numerous mistakes every time he opens his mouth. If he ever faces prosecution it will be based on his own public statements, as much as detective work.

30. I agree.

At first, I was in the pissed off camp, upset that the reporter didn't try to pin him down on anything. Then, I thought about it further and realized that the moment the reporter started challenging him in any way, Trump would have promptly ended the interview. We've seen him do that so many times. This way, the reporter kept him going, feeding out the rope. It was actually a good tactic to use with Trump. He got MUCH MORE material this way, and it speaks for itself. Most of it is word salad, and it's important to see this unrestrained, unedited, and free flowing from the idiot's lips. THAT is really the story. IMHO.

43. As someone who has interviewed defendants, convicts and elected leaders alike

I couldn't agree more wholeheartedly with you. There's more than one way to conduct an interview. Different personalities respond in different ways so you have to work with what you have.

Sometimes you have make the interviewee comfortable and let them slip into a mistake. Sometimes you have to choose your moments to call out their inconsistencies.

There's a lot more to the context than just bluntly and blindly asking questions and taking whatever comes along or not worrying about making the interviewee defensive.

46. Double standard indeed

Other media figures-Pierce, Klein, Hartmann for example- seem to understand the context of this interview. It wasn't a formal sit down pre arranged set up. The reporter caught the Dotard on the fly in an impromptu stream of consciousness style.

At this point it is far more important to let the suspect, , er, the subject, just ramble on. His words are far more telling than the reporters in this case

Context is everything. DUers taught me that, as the other side were the masters of taking things out of context

I am also learning that DUers fall all over themselves and fawn over some twitter post rather than applying some dedicated thought, circumspection, and logic to any matters these days

39. NYT did fine on an impromptu interview. See context. Also see Mark Twain:

"It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt."

NYT helped remove all doubt. The criticism ignores that kind of important factual result.
