Woodward Chides NYT, Mainstream Media

Famed investigative journalist Bob Woodward criticized the media’s open bias toward President Trump on Tuesday in remarks following a screening of “All The President’s Men” in Washington, D.C.

Woodward, the reporter who broke the Nixon Watergate scandal the media now loves to compare to the Trump administration, said it’s crucial the press retain the trust of the public, and execute a deep “fair-mindedness” when reporting.

“Tone matters, and headlines matter, and you want people to [trust you],” he said. “I think a kind of brief, deeply fair-mindedness is essential, but as essential or maybe more essential is a game plan for reporting this and going to Moscow and finding the bookkeeper.”

The bookkeeper was a reference to a key source for Woodward and Carl Bernstein in their Watergate coverage.

I find it annoying when WBOC refers to President Trump as "The Trump presidency". Since the shore went for Trump, their reference is a derogatory statement implying they don't recognize him as our elected president. Last night on the evening news, Paul Butler made a facial expression of distaste when referring to the president and this tweets about the MSNBC incident. They need to stick to reporting the news and keep their opinions out of it!!!

Amen to that 10:53. I'm so sick of it I quit watching in the mornings.

It's not hard to figure Paul Butler out. Be glad when he's gone
