“Why the New York Times Show gave me the Willies”

Yep. And when you read what they put into the production, it becomes even more icky. Just another huge concentration of wealth with the means to spend more on marketing to cover the deficits of the product.

I only know one of the editors personally, so I may be dead wrong, but I would bet that few of them are industrial workers, few live in small or mid-sized towns in the Midwest or South, few went to junior colleges, few hang around with people who voted for Donald Trump, or even Republicans, few go to emergency rooms for their health care, few have had low-wage jobs where they have competed with recent immigrants, few worry that their own jobs will be exported to Mexico or China. Do I need to go on?

And the endorsement that resulted was framed in a way that suggests how dangerously out of touch with reality they are.
