‘The base and keeping them energized against the press is absolutely essential to Donald Trump fighting and furthering the cover-up’

Bernstein: Trump Is Undermining the Free Press — ‘We Are Reporting the Truth’ (Breitbart)

Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” long-time reporter Carl Bernstein, known for his Watergate exploits, said President Donald Trump was attempting to “undermine a free press” because journalists were “reporting the truth.”

Bernstein said, “We have the story going on about this investigation closing in and how psychologically Trump is reacting. Telling the country that he is a stable genius while those in the White House are saying, well, he doesn’t look very stable right now to us and he didn’t look very much like a genius to us right now except where he obviously is ingenious, and that is in his political skills and mobilizing his base, which is his big offensive to keep the facts from emerging in this story.”
