At the LA Times, in a review of HBO’s John Adams:
George Washington (David Morse) so quickly tired of the infighting among his Cabinet and vagaries of public opinion that he stepped down from the presidency after a single term.
I guess that’s where the tradition of presidents stepping down after one term in office started.
The critic now is suitably embarrassed, but what about the editors? I thought that editors and fact checking were supposed to be the big advantage of the mainstream media.
