The Attorney General Is Speaking The Language Of Fox News

Every time Attorney General Bill Barr appears in public, it becomes clearer just how well-versed he is in the language and conspiracies that burble up out of the far-right’s fever swamps.

This was necessary, the theory went, because the Left didn’t care about norms anymor...

The atrium is one of several privately-owned, public spaces in the city that are created in exchange for loosening height restrictions. Trump Tower staff turned up the dial on the PA system just ...
