Miller: "It pains the media to give the president any credit for the work that he's done."— Reliable Sources (@ReliableSources) April 30, 2017
Bernstein: "Nonsense." https://t.co/6ILs0cZC8S
CNN commentator and veteran reporter Carl Bernstein on Sunday accused President Trump of lying "day in and day out."
“He deserves respect as the duly elected president of the United States," Bernstein said on CNN's "Reliable Sources." "That doesn’t mean he deserves not to be called on lies. He has lied as no president of the United States in my lifetime has, day in and day out."
"It is our job to, as I said in that address to the correspondents' dinner last night: follow the money, yes, but follow the lies as well."
Bernstein urged fellow reporters to find the "best obtainable version of the truth."
"We are struggling to cover factually, contextually, with nuance, who this president is, who this individual is, who his family is, who his business relationships are with, what his policies are, and how those working with him are doing," he said.
Lately I have been feeling mad respect for Carl Bernstein as he has not been at all shy about calling things as they are.
He has been calling Trump a liar since way back in June of last year, and he was one of the first to point out that there was a coverup going on in the White House.
What we need right now is a whole army of Carl Bernstein's who are not afraid to call a lie a lie, a coverup a coverup, and bullshit exactly what it smells like.
