(Before It's News)

Infamous Watergate reporter Bob Woodward had some uncomfortable words for the mainstream media’s safe-space-seekers. Following a tempestuous few days as the media and the White House toss propaganda grenades at one another, on Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball” show, the Washington Post Associate Editor stated that:

the press “shouldn’t whine, and if we sound like we are an interest group only concerned with ourselves, it doesn’t work with the public. At the same time, we need to continue the in-depth inquiries, the investigations.”

Woodward begins at 6:45:

Woodward added that it’s not in the interest of either the Trump White House or the media to war with each other.

“I think everyone has accelerated this work. The other question to ask, is there any justification for Trump and people like — in his White House responding this way? And the only justification I can think of, which really isn’t a justification, but it accounts for emotional spasm of, my God, this is enemy of the people, I know that reporters have talked to people in the Trump house, — Trump White House about very sensitive intelligence operations, that we find out about in the press. And I think Trump is horrified that this is out there. And these are not necessarily things that are going to be published, but Trump is a newcomer saying, my God how do reporters know about these things? And so it’s — we’ve got to stop it.”

“[I]t’s not in our interest, the media’s interest to have a war with the Trump White House. It’s not in Trump’s interest to have this war.”

Sadly, it appears it’s too late to get this toothpaste back in the tube (for both sides).

  • I think the more they whine, the more they move people to Trump’s side. I say give them enough rope to hang themselves completely, they’re already doing a good job but they must be called out for erroneous things they report.
