Ted Koppel: Trump's Not Imagining Things, The Liberal Media Are Out to Get Him

Obvious, but it's a statement against liberal media interest so it counts more in court.

"I'm terribly concerned that when you talk about the New York Times these days, when you talk about the Washington Post these days, we're not talking about the New York Times of 50 years ago," Koppel noted to journalist and author Marvin Kalb earlier this month. "We are not talking about the Washington Post of 50 years ago. We're talking about organizations that I believe have, in fact, decided as organizations that Donald J. Trump is bad for the United States."

Koppel added that "we have things appearing on the front page of the New York Times right now that never would have appeared 50 years ago. Analysis, commentary on the front page."

So [Trump's] perception that the establishment press is out to get him-- doesn't mean that great journalism is not being done; it is -- but the notion that most of us look upon Donald Trump as being an absolute fiasco, he's not mistaken in that perception. And he's not mistaken when so many of the liberal media, for example, describe themselves as belonging to "the resistance"? What does that mean? That's not said by people who consider themselves reporters, objective reporters of facts. That's the kind of language that's used by people who genuinely believe and rather suspect with some justification -- that Donald Trump is bad for the United States ... and the sooner he's out of office the better they will like it.

Koppel added to Kalb that "we are not the reservoir of objectivity that I think we were."
