Famed Watergate Journo Tells Media How They Need to Report Under Trump Admin

News For You

So I’m pretty sure he knows what he’s talking about. He, along with Bob Woodward, are the ones who broke the Watergate scandal after all!

All reporting, especially from those who want to claim to be unbiased, needs to be clean and accurate. No guessing, no “hoping”… tell it like it is!

As Written By Allahpundit for Hot Air:

Yeah, I don’t know what this means. I guess he means that the press needs to make Trump’s temperament and basic fitness for office a regular part of its White House beat, to an extent even greater than it typically does for Republican presidents. (Dubya was “incurious,” Reagan was senile, etc.) Which of course they already do. What he’s really suggesting per his comment about malignancy is that the media should be overtly oppositional, which would deplete any small remaining reservoir of trust that Republicans have in it. If you think right-wingers are eager for partisan niche outlets now, have Bernstein and his friends spend four years proclaiming themselves leaders of “the Resistance.”

Ironically, it was one of CNN’s anchors who denounced that idea recently in a speech to other journalists. From Jake Tapper’s remarks to the L.A. Press Club:

[O]ur facts need to be squeaky clean and uncorrupted. We are not the resistance, we are not the opposition, and we are here to tell the truth and report the facts regardless of whom those facts might benefit………
