@spulliam @Eugene_Scott Yeah, Trump is good at dictating the day, and he uses the media to drive the conversation. Absolutely no question about that. But as part of his strategy, what is says or tweets is often news, big news.

@spulliam and i agree, pack mentality is a big problem in journalism, whether it's political journalism, or covering disasters/violence

@spulliam we don't cover all his tweets! just the newsworthy ones

@spulliam I also think "the media" isn't dropping everything to cover Trump's tweet of the moment. You're still doing great work on religion, I'm spending my morning writing about the GOP's tax bill. It's not a zero-sum game.

@spulliam I think when the president tweets something, that's big news. It's the president of the United States, sharing his official thoughts and policy.
