New on December 2: Former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham, appearing on CBS’s Face the Nation, portrayed the Trump-led America as burdened by the worst characteristics of the nation which rise and fall through U.S. history. “Now we face this wildly unconventional president,” he warned, so “the task” is to get these bad forces, which are now “flowing” – “xenophobia, extremism, racism, nativism, isolationism” – to “ebb.”
YouTube took down more than 300 ads from President Donald Trump’s election campaign in what is only the latest example of the company fighting with the right.
