CNN’s Carl Bernstein defended the media on Sunday against criticism of its coverage of President Donald Trump and the Russia probe, saying that the press “has done one of the greatest reporting jobs” in the history of presidential coverage.
“Look, let’s look at where the disinformation and mistakes and lying have come from. It hasn’t come from the press. It’s come from the President of the United States and those around him,” Bernstein said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” hosted by Brian Stelter.
Stelter used the opening of his show to defend major news outlets against allegations from conservatives that the press uncritically pushed the narrative for two years that Trump colluded with Russia. (RELATED: The List Of CNN’s Bungled Reporting Is A Sight To Behold)
