In an outstanding article the NYT reports that Mr. Trump called on Monday for the United States to bar all Muslims from entering the country until the nation’s leaders can “figure out what is going on” after the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, Calif. The article suggests that this is an extraordinary escalation of rhetoric aimed at voters’ fears about members of the Islamic faith.
The NYT is a liberal paper but the reporting here is balanced. The evidence comes first and the analysis is carefully drawn from the evidence. This is journalism at its best.
