Wow, this is quite an admission. So basically Bernstein is saying that if a journalist doesn't like a President, that he/she has no duty to maintain journalistic ethics & standards. So now we all have to really start to question what we learned in the liberal-run school systems about Watergate & Deep Throat.

Bernstein admits that he doesn't have any ethics when it comes to trying to take down Presidents he dislikes, so I'm starting to think that maybe he was the real villain during the whole Nixon "scandal." How much of Bernstein's reporting was fake news? How much did he withhold to shape public opinion?

I think the whole Watergate thing should be revisited and perhaps told from a different POV where Nixon was just the victim of fake news, but of course there was no balance in the media back in those days so he wad no real way of fighting back.

Carl Bernstein calls for 'different kind of reporting' to take on 'malignant presidency'
by Daniel Chaitin | Jul 1, 2017, 12:43 PM

Carl Bernstein is calling on journalists to commit to a "different kind of reporting" in response to a "malignant presidency" unlike any the country has seen before.

"We're in foreign territory," Bernstein said Friday on CNN's "New Day."

He added, "We have never been in a malignant presidency like this before. It calls on our leaders, it calls on our journalists to do a different kind of reporting, a different kind of dealing with this presidency and the president."




Bernstein, best known for his investigative reporting that shed light on the Watergate scandal leading to President Richard Nixon's resignation in 1974, has previously said Trump's attacks on the press are "more treacherous than Nixon's."

Recently Trump has ramped up his criticism of certain outlets and journalists, including MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. On Saturday he continued that feud and also took shots at MSNBC and CNN.

"I think something much greater is happening, and that is that we are in the midst of a malignant presidency," Bernstein said Friday. He added that leaders in the military, intelligence community and the Republican leadership know of the "malignancy" and has them "worried."

"They are worried about his character. They are worried about his capabilities. They are worried about his temperament and state of his temperament, to use kind words here," he said.
