Award-winning journalist Ted Koppel says President Trump is “not mistaken” when it comes to many complaints about modern journalism.
The famous ABC reporter recently sat down for an hourlong discussion at Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, D.C., when he lamented of “Resistance” reporting and editorial choices by major newspapers.
“I turned to my wife [in 2016], and I said The Times is absolutely committed to making sure that this guy does not get elected,” Mr. Koppel said. “So his perception that the establishment press is out to get him doesn’t mean that great journalism is not being done. It is. But the notion that most of us look upon Donald Trump as being an absolute fiasco, he’s not mistaken in that perception, and he’s not mistaken when so many of the liberal media, for example, described themselves as belonging to the Resistance.”
“What does that mean? That’s not said by people who consider themselves reporters, objective reporters of facts,” the journalist continued.

I'm sure some of you will claim that journalists should be part of the "resistance," but I would expect nothing else from ideologues. And I wouldn't be surprised if ol' Ted "clarifies" his comments after his liberal betters have a chance to speak with him.
But, it's an interesting moment of truthfulness - however fleeting.
Don't get me wrong. Trump is an arrogant horse's ass. But his claims about media bias are spot on.
