One quick thought

In answer to Jeff Smith’s letter on Attorney-General William Barr, (“Sparring with Barr,” May 16) I wonder if in some way the power of the press has been subverted by the rampant desire for attention. The Washington Post needs the President’s ravings to sell subscriptions. At least that’s what he likes to claim. 

The journalistic trees may fall, but what if no one’s listening?
