They saw it coming: Inside the Trump administration’s failures on coronavirus

They saw it coming: Inside the Trump administration’s failures on coronavirus

“Any way you cut it, this is going to be bad,” a senior medical adviser at the Department of Veterans Affairs, Dr. Carter Mecher, wrote on the night of Jan. 28, in an email to a group of public health experts scattered around the government and universities. “The projected size of the outbreak already seems hard to believe.” A week after the had been identified in the United States, and six long weeks before President Donald Trump finally took aggressive action to confront — a pandemic that is now forecast to take tens of thousands of American lives — Mecher was urging the upper ranks of...

Fact check: Trump’s false claims about his response to the coronavirus

Fact check: Trump’s false claims about his response to the coronavirus

As he declared a national emergency over the coronavirus outbreak, President Donald Trump attempted to deflect criticisms of his administration’s response to the virus with inaccurate claims. Here’s a fact-check. What Trump said: “I don’t take responsibility at all because we were given a set of circumstances and we were given rules, regulations, and specifications from a different time.” Advertisement False. The Food and Drug Administration issued a “draft guidance” in 2014 in which it sought to extend its authority to regulate laboratory-developed tests. But it’s wrong to blame that...

Suburban Chicago newspaper chain 22nd Century Media folds amid coronavirus ad drought

Suburban Chicago newspaper chain 22nd Century Media folds amid coronavirus ad drought

Days after suspending print publication of its suburban Chicago newspaper chain, 22nd Century Media ceased operations Tuesday amid a coronavirus-spawned advertising drought. The end was sudden and the downfall swift, as businesses closed shop and advertising dried up, cutting off the key revenue stream for the weekly newspapers, Joe Coughlin, 22nd Century’s publisher, said Tuesday. Advertisement “We were having a great year, and then ... March,” Coughlin said. "Advertising and revenue collection just stopped.” The decision ends a 15-year run for the hyperlocal publisher, whose 14...

Coronavirus around the world: Spain locks down 46 million citizens as France closes the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, cafes, restaurants and cinemas

Coronavirus around the world: Spain locks down 46 million citizens as France closes the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, cafes, restaurants and cinemas

Spain locked down its 46 million citizens Saturday and France ordered the closing of just about everything the rest of the world loves about it — the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the cafes, restaurants and cinema — as governments took increasingly desperate measures to put more space between people and contain the coronavirus. More borders snapped shut around the globe: President Donald Trump announced that the U.S., which days ago barred travelers from most of Europe, will extend the ban to Britain and Ireland, where cases are on the rise. The president also said that he had been tested for...

Fact check: Mail-in voting fraud is actually quite rare. Here’s a look at recent false claims and distortions by President Trump

Fact check: Mail-in voting fraud is actually quite rare. Here’s a look at recent false claims and distortions by President Trump

In firing one inspector general, sidelining another and assailing a third, President Donald Trump in recent days has put his aversion to agents of federal accountability on stark display in a country consumed by the coronavirus. Advertisement Clearly displeased when inspectors general come to independent conclusions that don't fit the stories he tells, Trump employs a tactic to mar their credibility. If public servants worked for the government in the Obama era, they are subject to being painted as Obama loyalists out to get him. And they’re not insulated if they worked...

Column: Epstein sex trafficking charges could shine light on Clinton, Trump. Time for bipartisan revulsion.

Column: Epstein sex trafficking charges could shine light on Clinton, Trump. Time for bipartisan revulsion.

A number of rich and powerful people are sweaty this morning. That’s because multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein on sex trafficking charges involving dozens of young girls. These aren’t the old sex charges Epstein faced, the ones that, thanks to his wealth and political connections, earned him what “the most lenient sentences for a serial sex offender in U.S. history.” These are new charges. New charges that carry a possible sentence of nearly 50 years. New charges that might make a 66-year-old financier want to talk about the rich and powerful people who have spun in his orbit over the past...
