#Popcorn Moment- Even Woodward and Bernstein Know the Media Hate Towards Trump is Problematic

When it comes to Donald Trump, the media loves to dish out the insults and criticism. They're much less keen, however, on getting called out for their biased and unapologetically liberal perspective.

Famed journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein criticized the media Sunday for adopting an unnecessarily hostile "tone" in their coverage of the White House.

Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union," the two longtime reporters said there should be less pettiness and outrage in the media when it comes to President Trump.

"We oughtn’t be too provocative, which we sometimes are with a president who’s putting a lot of bait out there and sometimes we take the bait and get a little petty," said Bernstein.

"The tone is a big issue here," added Woodward. "In lots of reporting, particularly on television commentary, there’s a kind of self-righteousness and smugness and people kind of ridiculing the president. When we reported on Nixon, it was obviously a very different era but we did not adopt a tone of ridicule. The tone was, what are the facts?"
