The Special Comment: In Defense of Journalism

This originally appeared in Reason Revolution, episode five.

The front page of the June 18, 1972 issue of the Washington Post centered around the Nixon administration’s efforts in North Vietnam, Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern’s chances in the New York primary, and an impending US appeals court ruling involving an airline pilot strike and its demands for stronger protections against hijacking. However, among the other articles on the front page, one became the most important, not only for that day, but for the ensuing two years. “5 Held in Plot to Bug Democrats’ Office Here,” was the headline for an article by veteran Post reporter Alfred Lewis. “Five men, one of whom said he is a former employee of the Central Intelligence Agency, were arrested at 2:30 a.m. yesterday in what authorities described as an elaborate plot to bug the offices of the Democratic National Committee here,” Lewis reported.

The Special Comment: What are we to make of Georgia 6th?

This originally appeared in Reason Revolution, episode two.

So, what to make of last week’s Georgia 6th special congressional election? The most expensive congressional race in American history, the Democrats were hoping to pull off an upset that would upend President Trump’s chances at a post-election mandate by the voters. Sadly, this didn’t happen. Instead, Republican Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff by 3.8 percent of the vote. Ossoff did worse in this election than Hillary Clinton did last November, when Trump won the district by only 1.5 percent. Are the Democrats right to be worried about their prospects in the era of Trump? Should Republicans celebrate this victory and then prepare for the future battle of the 2018 midterms?

The Special Comment: The Point of Crisis

This originally appeared in Reason Revolution, episode one

The United States hinges on trust. Trust in our institutions; trust in our people; trust in our laws; trust in our traditions. Our “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor” endure explicitly from the ability of our citizenry to have faith in the leaders of our nation. Sadly, the past few months have shown that this trust has frayed to a cataclysmic degree.
