On the Night News Desk When Trump’s Tweeting Starts
It has been just over a year since the election of Donald J. Trump forced the political establishment to reconsider how it does business, and in turn upended many of the news media’s rhythms.
Mr. Trump is not a 9-to-5 president, and the way he works has complicated the way he is covered. This is especially true at night. Missiles fly, the staff is shaken up, policy is announced. The tweets never stop. They can be deadly serious (an attack on Syria’s chemical weapons capability) or unintentionally funny (“covfefe”).
