    A Failed Attempt to Overturn the Election

    A Failed Attempt to Overturn the Election

    Pressure and litigation appear to have been the pillars of President Trump’s response to his general election loss.

    His team filed a litany of court cases in battleground states. In some, such as Georgia and Michigan, the president and his allies took an even more bullish approach, attempting to use their influence to bear down on election officials.

    As preparations for the transfer of power finally get underway, we take a look at how the Trump campaign’s attempts to overturn the election played out.




    Guest: Jim Rutenberg, a writer-at-large for The New York Times and The Times Magazine, walks us through the Trump campaign’s strategy in key states.

    New York City’s 3 Percent Problem

    This week New York City’s public schools will close their doors and students will once again undertake online instruction.

    The shutdown was triggered when 3 percent of coronavirus tests in the city came back positive over seven days. There are questions, however, around this number being used as a trigger — some health officials maintain that schools are safe.

    When is the right time for schools to reopen and what is the right threshold for closures? We explore what lessons New York City’s struggles hold for the rest of the nation.




    Guest: Eliza Shapiro, who covers New York City education for The New York Times, walks us through the city’s decision to reopen schools and the difficult decision to shut them down.

    The Sunday Read: 'Man to Man'

    The Sunday Read: 'Man to Man'

    For years, Wil S. Hylton had been drawn to his cousin’s strength and violence. He was pulled in by the archetype that he embodied and was envious of the power he seemed to command.

    Wil describes his relative’s violence as “ambient” and “endemic,” but he was sure it wouldn’t turn on him. Until a few years ago, when his cousin tried to kill him.

    “My attraction to my cousin and my detachment as a husband both reside in the pantheon of male tropes,” he wrote. “Masculinity is a religion. It’s a compendium of saints: the vaunted patriarch, the taciturn cowboy, the errant knight, the reluctant hero, the gentle giant and omniscient father.”

    On today’s Sunday Read, Wil’s wide-ranging exploration of masculinity.
