Thank you for this note, Lucien. I am curious: Do you remember if any Dutch reporters or media outlets ever tried covering Geert Wilders differently? Or not at all? I have been looking at Italy/Berlusconi as another case study… But I’ve yet to find any examples of news coverage adapting to this kind of behavior (effectively). Anyway, please let me know if you have any ideas! Thanks!
