ABC’s Jon Karl to John Bolton: Doesn’t Trump Contribute to ‘Authoritarian Effort’ to Undermine a Free Press? (Breitbart)

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week‏,” host Jon Karl asked National Security Adviser John Bolton about the cancellation of his interview with CNN.

Karl asked, “I want to ask you about Putin and freedom of the press. Vladimir Putin and his government have jailed journalists, there have been accusations they have carried out murders of journalists, and we hear President Trump, doesn’t he kind of contribute to that authoritarian effort to undermine a free press when we hear him brand legitimate news organizations as fake, legitimate news stories as fake? Doesn’t that contribute to exactly the kind of undermining of the free press that we see out of Russia?”
