These are fraught times for the nation's political press. On Saturday, Sean Spicer, the new White House press secretary, made several demonstrably false claims while excoriating the White House press corps for its coverage of President Donald Trump's inaugural. And the following day, Kellyanne Conway, Trump's campaign manager-turned-senior advisor, got even more Orwellian, telling NBC's Chuck Todd that Spicer had simply presented "alternative facts." While Spicer took a more conciliatory tack in Monday's daily White House press briefing, the weekend's events raised with new urgency a question that's been dogging the media for months: how, exactly, should the press engage the Trump Administration? Peter Kadzis and Adam Reilly kicked the question around with media critic Dan Kennedy, WGBH News contributor and author of the blog Media Nation. Take a listen.
