  • Carl Bernstein: We’ve never had a president who lies like Trump

    Journalist Carl Bernstein on Sunday expressed doubts that President Trump would sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, citing the president’s “compulsive, continual lying.” “I think many of us will believe it when we see him sit down with Mueller. Look, we have no reason to believe almost anything that DT says. What is so extraordinary about him and his presidency is the incessant, compulsive, continual lying,” Bernstein said on CNN. “We’ve never had a president who lies like this, certainly in the modern era. Even Nixon,” the Watergate reporter added.

    Left wingers in Congress and the media are in full blown panic mode and right this minute are stomping their feet over the removal of Andrew McCabe from his position at the FBI. Both Carl Bernstein and Chris Matthews are characterizing it as a "Saturday Night Massacre." That signals their game plan for the coming disaster they are soon to have on their hands. Nancy Pelosi is close to being aphasic. Jake Tapper has abandoned all his journalistic cred in favor of editorializing: “Leading the Russia investigation could be hazardous to your career,” Tapper said at the top of the hour....

    CNN’s media reporter Brian Stelter got his long-awaited wish granted last week the liberal media en mass started openly questioned President Trump’s mental acuity followed the release of Fire and Fury, the dubiously sourced anti-Trump book that was light on facts but loaded with gossip. Despite how his show was called “Reliable Sources,” Stelter spent his entire Sunday show glorifying the book and praising those calling the President’s mental stability into question. “The tip-toeing is over! The whispers are turning into shouts! President Trump's fitness for office is now the top story in the country. Reporters and some lawmakers are...

    It was strange to see Carl Bernstein praising Fox News on CNN today. But Bernstein had an ulterior motive. He was trying to butter up Fox News in order to lure it into providing the ammo to blast President Trump out of office. [snip] Bernstein wants FNC to interview every Republican congressman and senator and report back what they really think about Trump’s fitness. Bernstein seemed confident that they would find that most think that Trump is unfit. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    All this week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2017. Monday, we presented some of the most outrageous examples of journalists fawning over liberal or left-wing icons, and yesterday we showcased some of this year’s nastiest attacks on Republicans or conservatives. Today, it’s a look at all of the over-the-top attacks on President Donald Trump, who was called a “crazy” “basket case” of a “sociopath” by the likes of CNN’s Don Lemon and the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin. Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were terrified that “madman” Trump’s tweets were going to get us...

    Notice how the New York Times and Washington Post are staying away from the CNN story about the upcoming Robert Mueller indictments. There’s a good reason for that… ….Things That Make Other Things Make Sense: Back on January 10th, 2017, when CNN first began emphasizing the Russian Dossier and how it related to the ‘vast Russian conspiracy’ CTH knew from the way it was being pitched that something was sketchy about CNN’s reporting. It wasn’t just the story they were selling; it was a very specific cast of characters selling it. We immediately NOTED IT HERE. Jake Tapper, Jim Sciutto,...

    Carl Bernstein said yesterday on CNN that Special Counsel Robert Mueller may be wanting "to send a signal to other prospective defendants," by filing his first charges yesterday in the Russia investigation. "If this person who has been indicted, or persons, are facing 20 to 40 to 50 years for whatever these crimes are - related to collusion or not - there may be others who are subject to similar charges who have further knowledge about dealings with Russia...There are a lot of intentions that the special council is trying to convey here, I suspect." Why it matters: The charges...

    Veteran journalist Carl Bernstein says “important Republicans” are saying privately that President Trump is “unfit” for office and urged reporters to look into how widespread those worries may be. Bernstein took to Twitter on Tuesday to make the claims, but did not identify any specific individuals who have called Trump unfit. He said reporters should look into how “pervasive such talk may be.” (TWEETS-AT-LINK) The famous Watergate reporter’s tweets come as Trump is under fire for his response to the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Va., at a white supremacist rally over the weekend. Trump initially blamed the violence on “many...

    Earlier today, President Trump tweeted out what has been reported to be a WrestleMania video from 2007 in which he took down a wrestler outside the ring. In the place of the wrestler's head, the CNN logo has been superimposed. See video from Trump tweet below. Carl Bernstein had a dark and apocalyptic reaction on CNN's Reliable Sources today. Notably, Bernstein said that the video goes to questions raised by "military leaders" about "the stability of the President of the United States." View the video here.

    Just when you thought the MSM might be running out of hyperbole about President Trump’s criticism of the media, along comes Carl Bernstein . . . On CNN’s Reliable Sources today, Bernstein unleashed a torrent of accusations about the president. Lowlights: Trump’s attacks on the media “more treacherous” than Nixon’s. Apophasis alert: “I’m not about to say anything comparing Hitler and Trump”, but Hitler and Stalin also used the phrase “enemy of the people” about the media. Trump is “leading a demagogic attack on the institutions of free democracy.” “This is a terrible time we’re living in.” View the video...

He said his editors made it clear that this was not in keeping with Times standards, "and I agree." He concluded by apologizing "profusely."...

    In 1977, Carl Bernstein published an exposé of a CIA program known as Operation Mockingbird, a covert program involving, according to Bernstein, “more than 400 American journalists who in the past 25 years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency.” Bernstein found that in “many instances” CIA documents revealed that “journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the consent of the managements of America’s leading news organizations.” Fast-forward to December 2016, and one can see that there isn’t much need for a covert government program these days.

    In the aftermath of the so-called Cocktober surprise unveiled this afternoon by the FBI when the bureau announced it was reopening a probe into Hillary Clinton's email server because "new evidence has come to light" after "materials" were found on equipment belonging to Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin, the question on everyone's lips - and certainly Hillary Clinton's and most democrats - is why did the FBI do this now, 11 days before the election, in a way that did not even coordinate with the White House? One opinion belongs to Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein, who just days after his...

    CARL BERNSTEIN: Well, there's no question that the e-mails have always been the greatest threat to her candidacy for president, that her conduct in regard to the e-mails is really indefensible and if there was going to be more information that came out, it was the one thing, as I said on the air last night, actually that could really perhaps affect this election. We don't know what this means yet except that it's a real bombshell. And it is unthinkable that the Director of the FBI would take this action lightly, that he would put this letter forth to...

    Carl Bernstein talks the power of the Drudge Report and the influence the eponymous editor had in the Republican primary race during a CNN panel discussion about Roger Ailes and the future of FOX News. Bernstein said FOX has driven Trump's candidacy less than Matt Drudge and called the website "an influence unequalled." "One of the interesting things we've seen in this campaign is, FOX has driven Trump's candidacy less than Matt Drudge," the legendary journalist said Wednesday on CNN. "Drudge is really great new factor in this election in terms of media. He is -- Drudge, that site has...
