Carl Bernstein: ‘Crisis’ for Journalism Dealing With ‘Morally’ Unfit President


[See NewsBusters for more.] Veteran Washington Post journalist Carl Bernstein on Monday offered a self-important warning, insisting that journalists face a “crisis” as they deal with the “morally” unfit President. Appearing on CNN to talk about Donald Trump’s reaction to the racist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Watergate-era reporter declared that the real conversation among those in D.C. is this: “How do you deal with a President who morally, ethically, has no regard for the law in their view and therefore is unfit to be president in a way that none of his predecessors were?” Bernstein lectured his fellow journalists: “We now have a story in which we as reporters need to be talking to high sources in the intelligence community, in the White House itself, in the Congress about the competency and fitness of the president of the United States. That's the real story here. It's a crisis.”
