Has the Press Learned to Cover Trump Better?

From a story on cjr.org by Jon Allsop headlined “Has the press learned to cover Trump better? The past week suggests not.”:

A few weeks before the 2020 presidential election, I teamed up with Pete Vernon, the former author of this newsletter, to examine how the mainstream press had covered the presidency of Donald Trump. We observed “a clear picture of an industry whose basic practices and rhythms have conspired, time and again, to downplay demagoguery, let Trump and his defenders off the hook, and drain resources and attention from crucial longer-term storylines.”
