The New York Times and Associated Press are aggressively targeting the wife of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, while CNN is targeting the wife of Bill Shine, the new White House deputy chief of staff for communications.
In the age of Trump, the establishment media have whined incessantly about protecting norms, about keeping in place the way things have always been done.
But even as the media bellyache about President Trump violating norms, in their own partisan zeal to destroy anyone of the political right the media are also violating all kinds of norms, including fomenting, excusing, and encouraging violence.
What’s more, this past week a number of far-left media institutions violated another cherished norm, the one about leaving families, including spouses, out of the political fray.
This, of course, is a good norm. Man and wife should be allowed to live separate lives, hold differing opinions, and pursue whatever careers they choose without it in any way affecting the other.
