The [Thursday] Papers

"Senior White House officials are in a state of shock, and facing huge questions about their handling of the crisis, over the resignation of Staff Secretary Rob Porter after his two former wives went on the record to allege physical abuse," Mike Allen writes in his (influential, sigh) Axios newsletter this morning.

Why he matters: Porter, 40 - a clean-cut Harvard and Oxford standout who was chief of staff to Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) - managed (and partly controlled) the information flow to President Trump, including clippings and briefings. Colleagues tell Axios' Jonathan Swan they can't reconcile the Rob Porter they know (consummate gentleman) with the Rob Porter they're reading about, with a police report and photos of a black eye by a former wife.

Because a clean-cut (white) "Harvard and Oxford standout" isn't the type of person who commits domestic violence?

*

The next item from Allen, by the way: "Two possible solutions as trust in media tanks."

1. "An emphasis on reviving local news outlets, which help us break out of our national filter bubbles."

Sounds great! Maybe Axios should start by making some major local investments.

2. "More content from businesses and employers, which have a higher level of trust than the media."

Yes, that's what we need: more content marketing! Like the native advertising in Allen's newsletter that doesn't affect the editorial coverage at all!

*

Allen's brand of journalism doesn't exactly inspire trust, either.
