"In a transcript of the newspaper’s crisis town-hall meeting, executive editor Dean Baquet grapples with a restive staff and outside scrutiny."

I'm disappointed the audio is not available.
Baquet, at times, seems to want to be a little more fair-minded, but sees the knives out for him should he not relentlessly pursue Trump with charges of "Racism!", much less vilifying America as a racism based culture.
I'm surprised Slate printed this, but they probably did it to keep Baquet in line.
Yet it exposes the bias of the elite media against non-elites.
At this point, complaining about media behavior is almost pathetic.
Like beating your head against a wall to make a point.
They are what they are.
Their readers expect them to be that way and will not tolerate less.
There is little recourse to this behavior except to counter with the real news.
I simply don’t understand, though, why defamation, either libel or slander, is tolerated by our judicial system.
“Trump is a racist”.
Freedom of speech is one thing, this is a totally different thing.
There is only one other means to demand honor, and that too is frowned on.
