How low can you go?

Every criminal trial is supposed to assume that the defense is at least as likely to be right about the case as the prosecution, but if the overwhelming majority of those brought to trial are not GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY, the system is broken. Giving The NY Times the benefit of the doubt, we can say that they are in a similar situation with regard to presidential election coverage. They are supposed to be even-handed, but one candidate (Donald Trump) is a hatemonger, a liar, a fourflusher, and a crook, and the other isn’t. That said, as their own columnist Paul Krugman has pointed out, they’re bending over too far backwards when they try to keep up with the Republicans in making up fake Hillary scandals.
