RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

MATTHEWS: "If you were to look behind you, you saw that somebody one of your competitors Roger or someone else, said you can’t come into the room. What would you have done?"
RATHER: "I would have walked out of the room. The Wall Street Journal would have done it if they had realized what was going on. A great deal of this is calculated and it’s a smoke screen. What did happen Donald Trump and Russian intelligence. A lot of this is designed to throw over the coverage of the important stories and having us talk about press access. This is going to continue. President Trump thinks he is winning a so-called information war. We’ll see as it goes along."
