Sullivan: Stahl Flubbed Trump-Pence Interview

Margaret Sullivan says that Lesley Stahl blew an important chance to call Donald Trump out as a liar on his Iraq War position in her 60 Minutes interview Sunday. “Stahl — busy trying to herd the other rhetorical cats set loose in the interview — did not say what she should have,” she writes, kicking off what’s likely to be a healthy streak of meta-criticism on the media’s closer scrutiny (or lack thereof) of Trump’s claims.
