Kristen Welker Failed the Trump Test
‘Meet the Press’ is still acting like it’s 2016.
Yesterday Meet the Press aired its interview with Donald Trump. At best it was inadequate. At worst it was dangerous.1
I want to talk about what Kristen Welker, the show’s new host, did right, what she did wrong, and what this particular booking says about how broadcast news is going to treat the insurrectionist who would be president.
