The news media was only interested in one thing. Finding anything that might get rid of Trump. A few years ago you could trust the media. Now they just lie and make up false stories. My local news paper prints thing, Letters to the Editor, that are blatantly false. But if they are against Trump they get printed.

With a few exceptions, the reporter/journalists, at liberal media, are not what the present themselves as. They have become readers, of scripts handed to them. They embellish the stories with just enough language to fool the listeners into believing it's actual news. The exceptions I alluded to are, are you and Lara Logan, who became fed up with pre-written news stories. Thank you.

Sharyl you are trying to present a professional approach to journalism. But you are speaking to a largely empty room because your peers have long ago willingly abandoned any semblance of professional journalistic integrity. They chose sides long ago, perhaps before they became journalists. In my opinion, about 90% of your peers are nothing more than paid propagandists who were brainwashed in school and college and entered your industry to push an ideologically driven agenda. You are among a rare few who try to maintain professional standards.
