Can’t wait for the trump season

I guess the publisher expected different outcome for trumps investigation that yield nothing. I hope the publisher will eat his hat and build a fair season that will describe what happened

What journalism should be

Slow burn is an amazingly well researched, constructed, and narrated story about some of the most problematic and contentious political issues of the 20th century. Well done!
