In January 2021, Robert Costa was arrested while covering the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. At the time, he was filming a report for National Review Magazine for his report on Sarah Palin. Mr. Costa, who is of Puerto Rican descent, was arrested along with other members of the press after police decided to break up a group of anti-Palin protesters into smaller groups. As a result, Mr. Costa was sprayed with pepper, repeatedly teased, and his glasses were broken during the scuffle. The incident marked the first time that an American political reporter was arrested outside a major political convention.

After the arrest, Robert Costa went on a news show to discuss the situation and was arrested by the police himself shortly thereafter. After serving some time in prison, he was freed, but soon rejoined the ranks of the media, working as a contributor to several online publications. Since taking on the additional responsibility of managing editor-in-chief of the Washington Post, Robert Costa has grown more confident in his abilities as managing editor of Waypost. Recently, he was also awarded tenure as the Editor-in-Chief of the Post. His appointment as editor-in-chief of the Post is quite remarkable, given that the newspaper had never previously had a black American editorial.

One of the most recent major stories that made Robert Costa a household name, in addition to being a Washington Post columnist, is his profile of H.R. McMaster, President Trump's newly appointed national security adviser. In the piece, Costa did not reveal much about history to the new national security adviser, among other things. According to Costa, H.R. McMaster "did not attend many history classes during his years as a military officer and then as a student." This, according to Costa, is incredibly problematic, given that HR is there to guide Trump and members of the administration on matters of national security.

As it turns out, H.R. McMaster went to a few colleges, two AP courses, and a minor in Govt. But the question here is not so much what happened between Robert Costa's college years and his work in the federal government shutdown, but rather what happened before the government shutdown. After all, the new administration wouldn't have chosen HR to head the NSC without at least some knowledge of national security, would it?

Well, this past week brought news of another key personnel move in Washington, this time in the form of HR McMaster becoming the new national security adviser. As reported by The New York Times,

It's strange to think that the person who was meant to be the managing editor of the weekly roundtable, manning journalists on all kinds of national stories, might not really have a firm grasp of history. After all, Washington has actually been consumed by infighting between the White House and Congress over health care and national security issues for quite some time. And while anyone who covered Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's confirmation process might know all about inter-party politics, it's strange to see the new NSC director pick up a nickname that was George W. originated during the height of the Bush administration. After all, H.R. McMaster could run for president in 2021, but the managing editor of the weekly roundtable is a promotion from within the current administration.

If once Robert Costa was considered a reporter of merit, he is now. If anything, the new NSC director should realize that he, and not the weekly roundtable, is the appropriate place for presidential advice and debate. After all, the media may not be interested in their opinions on social policy and foreign affairs, but they certainly care if they have opinions about matters as important as government. This new position, which would allow him to manage stories about the future of the Defense Department, may have brought him to Washington, D.C.
