As Donald J. Trump takes the oath of office, The New York Times' New York and Washington bureaus prepare to cover an administration unlike any other. The role that Russia played in the 2016 election quickly emerges as a storyline that will continue to unfold, consuming a troop of investigative journalists for the year to come. In this fiercely competitive environment, The Times and The Washington Post vie for scoops while overtaxed journalists work to develop sources inside a volatile administration. Tension boils over when the President calls the media "the enemy of the people." Remarkably, F.B.I. director James Comey announces an active federal investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election. Meanwhile, the paper faces economic challenges as they continue to adapt to a digital world. In a time when the news never stops, reporters scramble to break the stories vital to the future of our democracy before the pace and the scrutiny breaks them.
