Inside the Times: To Cover Elections, It’s All Hands on Deck

From a New York Times Insider column by Emmett Lindner headlined “To Cover the Midterms, It’s All Hands on Deck”:

Election Day for the 2022 midterms is finally here — but for the New York Times journalists who write about the campaigns, the divisions within the country and the national mood, the work began well before November. The coverage effort is newsroom-wide: Journalists from desks such as Culture and Business have a hand in the report, but “the Politics desk is ground zero for all of this,” said David Halbfinger, The Times’s Politics editor.
