    On the Media Sexual Harassment and Realpolitik in the Senate Sexual assault allegations have hit yet more institutions from our very own New York Public Radio to the halls of Washington, where a wide range of bad behaviors have prompted the imminent departures of Michigan Democratic Rep. John Conyers, Minnesota Democratic Senator Al Franken and Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks. But while Democrats appear to be attempting a thorough housecleaning, the Republican response has been far more tactical and sparing: President Trump has been accused by 19 women of sexual misconduct and remains squarely in power and Republican Senate hopeful Roy Moore has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by multiple victims, including one who was 14 years old at the time, and continues to enjoy his party's backing. According to Slate writer Dahlia Lithwick, Republicans appear to be putting political gain over principle, while Democrats are engaged in a process of "unilateral disarmament" which she says might lead to more suffering for their party and for the country. Brooke speaks with Lithwick about the ethics, optics and efficacy of the Democrats' current course.

    1A with Joshua Johnson Tina Brown To The Max Nobody chronicled the 1980s like Tina Brown. And her chronicling of the decade helped to reshape American culture. Brown re-invented Vanity Fair for the modern era, and her controversial stint at The New Yorker brought a new approach (and photographs and more readers) to the legendary magazine. "Her editorial appetites were fierce; she raked in news and new writers and cash," writes Nathan Heller in The New Yorker. "Some people found her style unsettling, and her victories did little to alter that judgment. Brown's legacy remains controversial not because her success is in question but because, for some, too much was lost in her kind of success." "One of Tina's gifts as an editor was that she saw the American cultural hierarchy for what it really was: not a hierarchy of taste at all, but a hierarchy of power that used taste to cloak its real agenda," writes current New Yorker and former Vanity Fair writer John Seabrook in his book Nobrow. Brown later founded The Daily Beast, establishing a legacy in the digital age. Now, Brown is in the news again, both with a new book that looks back at her time in New York in the 1980s, and the news that she had warned Hillary Clintons campaign about Harvey Weinstein. We talk to Brown about her life and legacy, and the future of magazine journalism.
