As all the other media outlets and writers pundits commentators opponents and journalists social media 24/7 news cycle and dozen of interviews - have failed to. put pressure (or expose) on this new type of White House/Administration. Or even lose their tackt. See Wolffs wikipedia and his interview about Murdoch book and issue with sourcing. quotes never lead the author nor the reader to the whole truth. so Michael Wolff. - &! https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/features/taibbi-why-michael-wolffs-book-is-good-news-w515045 &! critics about Wolffs work (see wikipedia profile) also his duplicity for that year: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jan/11/wolff-fire-and-fury-administration-author - at best a double agent who fooled three four sides.
