Description

It used to be rare for a president to fire an inspector general, a position created within government agencies after Watergate and assigned to fight waste and corruption. Today, we look at what President Trump’s pattern of replacing inspectors general reveals about the nature of the independent office — and about presidential power. Guest: Maggie Haberman, who covers the White House for The New York Times. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily

sometimes I just wonder if the NYT ever considers the fact that if they act like liberals, 100% of the time writing negative stories about Republicans, then they lose all credibility as a straight news outlet.... but they arent straight news. They are liberal propagandists.
