Trump has “shown himself throughout this campaign to be a pathological liar,” Bernstein stated.”There’s very little truth that comes out of his mouth, so let’s start there.”
“Really, this is about a candidate for president of the United States who does not believe in a free press,” he exclaimed. “He keeps talking about changing libel laws and suing the press and has instituted many, many lawsuits throughout his career. The underlying story here is who is Donald Trump? And I will say, and have said, that we are seeing the nominee of a major political party for the first time in our history, who is a neofascist, a particular kind of neofascist — a strong man who doesn’t believe in democratic institutions.”
“His bigotry is evident and we need to keep looking at it, but this is a story of a candidate who is a total break in our history and we need to be doing reporting on it, not just debating it on television,” he continued.
It looks like Trump's free ride with the press is coming to a screeching halt.
Yeah it was all fun and games and high ratings a few months back, but now that he is this close to winning the White House, shit just got real.
Personally I would argue that shit was getting real way back when Trump, Cruz, and Kasich were the only three GOP candidates still standing. Because not ONE of those guys should ever get close the Oval Office in my opinion.
Once we get passed this campaign season it will really be time for the press, and especially the cable news outlets, to sit down and reassess how they cover presidential candidates.
I think it's abundantly clear that the Donald Trump candidacy would not even have existed if not for the eager cooperation it enjoyed from various news agencies.
P.S. By the way reports are coming in right now that Trump has fired his controversial campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

Donald Trump is reportedly dumping his hothead campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, only weeks into the real estate mogul's disastrous general election run.
Good now the news media can cover the disintegration of the campaign that they helped to create.
