As I mention in my article, it’s an interesting approach to such a piece, to say the least. Using the quotes of former campaign staffers as a lens, the Times then goes on to get sexy. But it pivots at the moment it’s about to get sexy — such as the affair insinuation. It never says there was an affair, just that staffers were convinced there was one.
Obviously that doesn’t make it any better. But it shows how this piece gets precariously close to the line and trips over it.
And, Quin, can I order a nothingburger, with an order of smear fries?
