Carl Bernstein Calls for More Anti-Trump Fake News [VIDEO]

Written by Joe Scudder

Because Donald Trump is a “malignant” President, Carl Bernstein calls on the media to keep attacking him.

Assuming Americans are stupid, Watergate celeb Carl Bernstein calls for oppositional media coverage of Donald Trump that is already entirely oppositional—pretending no one has tried that before he came up with the idea. Does Bernstein think he can hypnotize the populace? The reporting is already heavily opposed to the president in a way that exceeds anything we have seen before.

But Trump supporters should hope the media heeds Bernstein’s call for “a different kind of reporting” that is the same reporting they have been doing. They are basically campaigning for Republicans in 2018 and Trump in 2020.

CNN reports, “Bernstein: We are in the midst of a ‘malignant presidency.’

Journalism legend Carl Bernstein called on the US press Friday to rise to the challenge of the Donald Trump presidency, which he characterized as “malignant.”

“We’re in foreign territory,” Bernstein said, speaking on CNN’s “New Day.” “We have never been in a malignant presidency like this before. It calls on our leaders, it calls on our journalists to do a different kind of reporting, a different kind of dealing with this presidency and the President.”

Bernstein went on to argue that the Trump presidency’s deepest problems are becoming an open secret in Washington.

“I think something much greater is happening, and that is that we are in the midst of a malignant presidency,” he said. “That malignancy is known to the military leaders of the country. It’s known to the Republican leadership in Congress who recognize it, and it’s known to the intelligence community.”
