Charlie Gard is an 11-month-old baby in the UK who was born with a terminal mitochondrial disease. It is an inherited chronic illness that is difficult to diagnose and entails a variety of debilitating disabilities that can be physical, developmental, and cognitive. It can stunt growth, pervert muscle development, cause seizures and organ failure. It is an unhappy condition to befall anyone, and those who are afflicted by it have an especially hard time getting the help they need.

A common topic of political commentary in recent weeks—indeed, ever since the election of President Trump—has been the threat that foreign hacking poses to our democracy. Notably, there have been substantial fears, evidenced by leaders within the intelligence community at home and abroad, that Russia and perhaps others tried to sway the election. The threat has not just been here in the US, either. The election of President Macron, too, was mired in the threat of Russian cyber-hacking.

But, a GREAT editor can make the story present a slanted or even opposite take on the same facts.

As is now well-known, the Supreme Court agreed to review President Trump’s travel ban and has, to date, partly lifted the temporary injunction that had obstructed the ban’s implementation across the country. The Trump Administration sought out the review of the decisions that were delivered by the Fourth and Ninth Circuits earlier in May. The Court ruled that the ban was to be executed but that it ‘may not be enforced against an individual seeking admission as a refugee who can credibly claim a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.’
