Reporting Tip for NYT: It Doesn’t Know How Much Information About COVID-19 Spending Is “Desired” by Republicans

03/07/2022 12:00am

In an article about the difficulty the Biden administration faces in getting more funding to deal with the pandemic, the NYT told readers:

“At issue is whether the White House has provided the level of detail desired by Republicans about the trillions of dollars in Covid relief spending that Congress previously authorized.”

Unless the NYT’s reporters have mind reading capabilities, they don’t know what level of detail Republicans desire, they know what they are requesting. It would be good if they would restrict themselves to reporting on what politicians say and do, not what they think.
