Bob Woodward of the Washington Post recently said that CNN is too emotionally unhinged about Trump and he’s exactly right. CNN has become an entire network devoted to Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Woodward on CNN: Remedy isn’t a lawsuit, ‘it’s more serious reporting’
Watergate reporting icon Bob Woodward argued that the remedy to President Trump’s decision to revoke Jim Acosta’s White House press credentials isn’t a lawsuit, “it’s more serious reporting about what he’s doing.”
Woodward made the remark at the Global Financial Leadership Conference in Naples, Fla.
“In the news media there has been an emotional reaction to Trump,” Woodward said, later adding, “Too many people for Trump or against Trump have become emotionally unhinged about this.”
“The remedy [isn’t a lawsuit],” he argued. “It’s more serious reporting about what he’s doing.”
NBC News’s Dylan Byers first tweeted Woodward’s comments.
Woodward has cautioned reporters covering the president in recent months, once telling The Atlantic that the American people “see the smugness” of some in the press and that “following the facts” without injecting feelings and opinions into reporting is one way to help regain the trust of the public.
It’s hard to see how CNN ever recovers from the damage they’ve done to themselves over the last couple of years. They would almost have to turn over their entire staff.
