Apparently the FNK (Fake News Media) think the WSJ is giving Pres Trump an easy ride. (Can anyone remember when CNN, NYT, CBS, WAPO, ABC, MSNBC et al during the last eight years gave Obama and Clinton anything other than an armchair ride? Hell, CNN even slipped presidential debate questions to Clinton so she could rehearse.)
The editor of the WSJ has hit back and has suggested that any of his reporters who don't like the paper's approach should be working somewhere else.
Wall Street Journal Editor in Chief Gerard Baker on Monday aggressively defended the newspaper against criticism that its reporting on President Donald Trump has been soft, saying the coverage has aimed to hold the new administration accountable without becoming “oppositional.”.......
..........Monday’s event came after multiple media reports, citing unnamed news employees, described internal rancor at the Journal over its approach to covering the Trump administration under Mr. Baker’s leadership.
Mr. Baker said he has found it “irritating” to read critiques of the Journal’s coverage of Mr. Trump. He rattled off a string of Journal exclusives and in-depth articles as evidence of the paper’s aggressive coverage, including reporting on the president’s business conflicts and foreign dealings and the recent controversy surrounding Michael Flynn, his national security adviser.
“Don’t let anyone tell you our reporting on Donald Trump has been soft,” he said. “It’s been extremely tough.” Referring to the notion that the Journal has been timid, he said, “you might even call it fake news.”
