By the way, David started with the way he likes to analyse first impressions of any cirt - there are two things he must do when he invades a new city - as this is his first time in Australia, gets the taxi to take him to rough area of the city and he Czechs (sic) out advertisement. The first ad he saw was ad by the ATO about its success with fighting tax evasion relating to multinational enterprises ... David was disappointed as he thought the ad lacked context and comparison.

Johnston first met Trump as a reporter for The Philadelphia Inquirer in June 1988 and likened him to P. T. Barnum. He subsequently reported on Trump for almost 30 years, and wrote the book in 27 days.[1] In an interview with The New York Times Johnston said that Trump had "...seriously damaged his brand" with his presidential campaign and would "follow him for the rest of his life". Johnston also felt that Trump was "masterful at understanding the conventions of journalism" and "remarkably agile at doing as he chooses and getting away with it".[1]
The book entered the New York Timeshardcover nonfiction list in fifteenth position[1] and spent four weeks there.[2]

If Paul Manafort had not been such a crummy and absentee Brooklyn neighbor, he might not be in such hot water. He would not have crossed an urbane housewife-turned-blogger who doesn't consider herself a journalist but smelled something fishy around an unsightly townhouse. There's no more improbable anecdote to Manafort's indictment for laundering millions of dollars than the saga of Katia Kelly, a German-born former aspiring fashion designer who stumbled upon the curious purchase history of a Brooklyn brownstone that's now evidence in the money laundering case against Manafort.  If ever there was a tale of all politics being local — and ramifications occasionally being national — this is it."I am not really a reporter," Kelly told me Tuesday as she helped her father close up his North Carolina beach house. She grew up in Germany and France and moved with the family at age 14 to Long Island, which she hated ("so dreadfully dull").
