[Explicit Language] Heather Timmons is the White House editor for Reuters, the former Asia Bureau Chief, and a former White House correspondent with Quartz. Today, we’ll talk about covering politics in an age when clicks and outrage get all the attention, as well as the infuriating process by some outlets, mainly cable news, to manufacture artificial balance.
