Dnipro, Ukraine — Ukrainian forces recaptured the key city of Lyman over the weekend — a major crossroads in eastern Ukraine. Vladimir Putin's military has responded to its steady loss of ground with more long-range attacks, punishing Ukrainian civilians miles away from the front lines for their own troops' advances. When Ukrainian paratroopers swept into Lyman after a hard-fought battle, hoisting their country's flag over the town for the first time in months, it was one of the most significant victories of the war.

CBS News' John Dickerson asked New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who has become the chronicler-in-chief of the Donald Trump era, "How long has Donald Trump been in your head, or you in his?" "At least 11 years for this level of intensity," she replied. "And what's it like to have Donald Trump in your head, or be a part of his thinking, for 11 years?" "I had one of his old friends say to me, 'He doesn't wear well over time.' And I think that the collective we have experienced that at various points." Haberman has been covering Trump since the late 1990s, as a metro reporter for the New York tabloids. In 2016 alone she had 599 bylines or co-bylines in The Times – more than one a day – and that pace has slowed only slightly in the years since.
