But what about next week and next month?
Can something as dull-sounding as the workings of the Post Office
compete with former Trump attorney’s new tell-all book, whose
foreword includes lines like: “From golden showers in a sex club
in Vegas, to tax fraud, to deals with corrupt officials from the
former Soviet Union, to catch and kill conspiracies to silence
Trump’s clandestine lovers, I wasn’t just a witness to the
president’s rise — I was an active and eager participant.”
Can it break into the endless political takes on Kamala D. Harris
as Joe Biden’s running mate, or the next political horse-race
story that’s around the corner?
But if journalists don’t keep the pressure on Postal Service
problems, they will be abdicating their duty. There’s very little
that matters more than the Nov. 3 vote. Anything that threatens
the integrity of the vote needs to be treated as one of the
biggest stories out there — even if it’s not the sexiest.
