... unclear if the falloff reflects new White House sensitivity ...

Oddly enough, I can't find it online, so I cannot provide a link, and wonder whether the online version was edited.

My physical newspaper in my hands (I know, who reads those anymore) has "falloff" as one word.

This strikes me as wrong. It should be hyphenated, in my opinion: fall-off.
