Nixon's echoes in the age of Fox



The New York Times reported last night
that Donald Trump wanted to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, but backed down when the White House counsel threatened to quit.

Trump: Fake news.

Fox News: Nothing to see here (while the story was breaking, they were talking about a meeting between Barack Obama and Louis Farrakhan more than a decade ago).

Sean Hannity: Untrue. Later, OK, it's true, but nothing to see here. (see video).

The daily question: Does anything Trump does harm him with "his base"? Or has tribalism taken us to a world in which facts don't count?
