From the article:
During the Trump presidency, Elkins said, mainstream press outlets took a stronger stand in evaluating comments—not just saying there were two sides to things, but pointing out when statements were wrong. He said it will be interesting to see if reporters continue "having a stronger presence on discerning questions of facts that are in dispute."
Elkins’s interests are primarily at the intersection of political and legal theory, and the study of institutions.
He has written on the idea of constitutional rights, on the relation of popular sovereignty and constitutionalism, on the nature of legal rules, and is currently writing on the function of war as a metaphor in domestic and foreign policy, and is working on a book about our competing commitments to the idea of law.
