Reinstate Lauren Wolfe at the New York Times

Journalist Lauren Wolfe was recently fired by the New York Times for tweeting that the sight of Joe Biden's plane landing at Andrews Air Force Base gave her 'chills.' The right-wing Fox News went after her for it as a betrayal of journalistic objectivity and the Times caved and cut her loose. This is ridiculous for so many reasons. Journalists often describe the mood of a historical event they are witnessing as part of the story. The events leading up to Biden's inauguration ceremony were received with patriotic excitement by many people as another grand page in our national history. To be excited by the plane landing is like being excited at the Super Bowl kickoff or halftime show. She should be reinstated immediately.
