Why are we giving Wolff’s book the time of day?

The right wants to know why more people on the left aren’t calling Wolff out on his assertions about President Donald Trump. A roundup of editorials Thursday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the right:

1. It’s time to stop paying so much attention to Michael Wolff’s sloppy book

From The Washington Post: Wolff’s book is too messy to take seriously.

2. Trump's successful presidency & Wolff's erroneous book

From Newt Gingrich: Is Trump mentally unfit? The left wants you to think so, but their erroneous claims have damaged any chance they have to be taken seriously. 

3.  An artistic class cowed by political correctness

From the New York Observer: Writers such as Wolff should have realized that there are perspectives in the country that differ from their own.

One morning nearly 22 years ago, four employees of a furniture store in a small Mississippi town were shot to death. For months afterward, local law enforcement seemed stumped by the crime. Eventually, the top prosecutor — Doug Evans — charged a former store employee, Curtis Flowers, a black man who had no criminal record. The case since...

Opinion: Trump insists you believe the unbelievable

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen claimed Tuesday that she was unaware of any intelligence finding that Russia intervened in the 2016 elections on behalf of Donald Trump. That’s quite odd. As DHS secretary, Nielsen is charged with election security and protecting the nation from Russian cyberattacks. Yet she is supposedly ignorant...
