The relationship between Donald Trump and the media has been tenuous to say the least.
For over a year, the mainstream media constantly told the American people that Trump had no chance of winning the election and they even suggested he would drop out before the election.
Obviously, that’s not how things turned out and the media lost a lot of credibility as a result.
Here is what CBS’s John Dickerson had to say about the media’s credibility.
From Washington Examiner:
John Dickerson, anchor of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” disagrees with reporters who say President Trump is eroding the national media’s credibility.
“But that one comment, they don’t trust you anymore, is a summation of where we are in America, because I really do think Manhattan-Beltway elites have lost the country,” Hewitt said. “They’ve lost it.”
“Yes, it’s true, and it’s not because of anything obviously Donald Trump did. The press did all that good work ruining its reputation on its own, and we can have a long conversation about what created that,” Dickerson said.

“Part of it, though, is what you mentioned about the local weather report, which is to say a lot of hysterical coverage about every little last thing that doesn’t warrant it,” he added.
Here’s the video of the exchange.
Nice to see a member of the mainstream media finally admit the truth.
