What are your (admittedly, very early) predictions on how the runoffs will go? I've seen a lot of commentary that GOP voters will be fired up, but without Trump on the ticket, it makes me wonder if Warnock and Ossoff can pull it off.

Why do you think so many news organizations have eliminated their public editor positions? It strikes me as rather hypocritical that the media (rightfully!) claims its position as a 'watchdog,' but fails to employ a watchdog for their own work.

I'm sure economics are a primary factor here, but I'm wondering if there's something else – clearly, NPR views you as valuable but other companies, presumably with larger budgets, think otherwise about the public editor role.
