Guest opinion: The good news about bad faith

Americans just can't stop accusing each other of bad faith. Take Washington Post columnist Greg Sargent’s claim that Sen. Joe Machin’s “inflation fearmongering” about the Build Back Better Act “is saturated in bad faith.” According to Sargent, the West Virginia Democrat “has ...

Guest op-ed: Protect the badge and protect the truth

Every day, police officers have to focus on the routine but meaningful work that comes with the badge — interviewing victims, writing reports, directing traffic. But hanging over every mundane moment is the dreadful specter that everything could go wrong in the blink of an eye. And if it ...
