On this week's edition of "The New York Times Closeup" with Sam Roberts: a split decision from Amazon, with half of its huge HQ2 project going to Long Island City. The online giant got $1.7 billion dollars in incentives from New York. Was it a good deal for New York? The President versus the press. Donald Trump publicly bashes three female, African-American White House reporters and bans a CNN correspondent. CNN sues the White House. Will Trump's war on the media get even hotter? And the midterm election that won't end. A recount in Florida and more House seats declared for the Democrats. Was there in fact a Blue Wave? Plus, Sam Roberts adds his thoughts in "Coda."
