Worth a careful read, everybody – this response to the story from the Fox News editor who killed the Stormy Daniels story in 2016.
Based on this Fox News editor's explanation of what happened with the Stormy Daniels story, Jane Mayer, yet again, has some serious 'splainin to do about her "journalism." Hope Stelter asks the tough questions.

Of course, note MSNBC is still citing completely debunked New Yorker piece
“I Stopped the Stormy Daniels Story at Fox News. Here’s Why.” A worthwhile read, in light of the agenda-driven hit job that dropped a few days ago...
