[OP-ED]: Halperin is right: When reporters become ‘combatants,’ they stop being journalists

 04/03/2017 - 08:41
Too many journalists are in the arena, protecting their employers’ brands and going mano a mano with Trump. This means they’re combatants, and that they’ve stopped being journalists. 
English

 I never thought I’d say this, but Mark Halperin is right. 

In May 2015, I wrote a column criticizing Halperin for a series of questions that he posed to Ted Cruz that I considered racist.

No se da a querer. Ni siquiera es agradable. Lo que Donald Trump sí es, es el presidente de EE. UU. más impopular del que se tenga memoria, lo cual tiene muchísima lógica.

Lovable he is not. He is not even nice, for goodness’ sake. What Donald Trump is, is the most unpopular U.S. president in modern history, which coming to think of it, was to be expected.

It’s time to take control of Medicaid before it takes control of us. Unless we act -- and there is little evidence that we will -- Medicaid increasingly becomes another mechanism by which government skews spending toward the old and away from the young.
