FROM Adam Nagourney
New Year's Eve in Des Moines This New Year's Eve is almost the eve of the Iowa Caucuses , the first time Americans will record their preferences for the presidential candidates of 2008. In the competition between states to be first to go, Iowa ended up on January 3. For almost 30 years, political reporters have complained about Iowa's winter weather and about Des Moines, the grimy, decrepit capitol of that Midwestern state. But Adam Nagourney of the New York Times says he's looking forward to New Year's Eve in a Des Moines that has been transformed.
How will the media cover the Trump White House? America's White House has never been completely transparent, but the Bill of Rights protects reporters when they try to discover as much as they can. As President, Donald Trump may create new challenges…for journalists and for every American who wants to know.
