Trump in feud with Watergate reporter US President Donald Trump is waging a war of words with legendary Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein over a story about his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen. On Wednesday, the president called Mr Bernstein a "sloppy" and "degenerate fool" who invented stories. Mr Bernstein fired back on Thursday, tweeting that he spent his life "bringing the truth to light" and "no taunt" could diminish that commitment. His story reported Mr Trump knew about a 2016 meeting with Russians. I cant see much wrong with the story.Both parties are quoted fully and the BBC gives some context to the story. Trump could be telling the truth but so could CNN. It can hardly be an anti Trump story when it reflects his own agenda and I suppose it depends on which party has the most credibility in your eyes.
