Oh. Snap.

When the man who earned his fame breaking the Watergate story and bringing down President Richard Nixon says the media has gone too far, everyone should definitely take note.

While Woodward oddly tempered his criticism of the Washington Post, which has been the most ardently anti-Trump voice in the mainstream media, he did articulate something that most Americans agree with. The media has gone too far in their anti-Trump coverage and they’ve begun reporting on their fears rather than on the facts.

“Stick to the reporting. Stick to the reporting. You have done a great job. Of course, one of the realities here is that we’ve got an old newspaper war going between The New York Times and The Washington Post. Some very powerful stories. At the same time, I think it’s time to dial back a little bit about because there are people around — certainly not you, certainly not the reporters at the Post — who are kind of binge drinking the anti-Trump Kool-Aid. And that is not going to work in journalism. Let the politicians have that binge drinking.”

Interestingly, while Woodward praises WaPo and the two journalists from the paper sitting with him on the panel, near the end of his commentary he reminds journalists that they should never “gloat.” I say that’s interesting because just last week when the Post released their story on

This the same Washington Post that just a few years ago couldn’t contain their glee when their favorite liberal lord stopped by for a visit.

Around 100 people–Post reporters perhaps?–awaited POTUS’s arrival, cheering and bobbing their coffee cups…

“Staff writers, photographers, editors and employees from other departments lined the hallway after word spread that the President-elect would be walking through the newsroom.” Now Kurtz: “There hasn’t been this much excitement in The Washington Post newsroom since Brad Pitt dropped by.”

One wonders how the Washington Post staff would react if President Trump stopped by for a visit this week, does anyone think their would be reporters gleefully awaiting his arrival or cheering when he stepped through their doors?

Yea, probably not.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
