Mollie Hemingway: Media Always Reacts ‘Hysterically’ to Everything Trump Says

‘There are real issues at play’

HEMINGWAY: "It seems that the press always reacts the same way, which is hysterically to everything that Trump says. Not that it’s not frustrating to deal with a president so imprecise. That is frustrating. At the same time, I think this constant level of hysteria causes people to tune out or get hysterical themselves. There are real issues at play. We actually have had reporting for months on surveillance of trump transition people. We haven’t gotten a good digging for that story about why we have people both surveying these people and leaking in a coordinated campaign. That’s a legitimate story even if trump talks about it in a way that’s less than ideal."
