    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.

    Legendary journalist Carl Bernstein or Reality TV star Donald Trump ?

    Neither.

    I find it hard to believe Bernstein hasn't 'enhanced' his stories to reach a larger readership.

    Why don't people just search news instead of "Trump News?"

    Well, the President's argument about Google's unfairness was specifically for the search "Trump News." So that may be why people are scanning it now. Actually, that was a good plug for the Pres, wasn't it? I wonder if he did it intentionally.....

    Probably. But I was referring to Tammy referring to the POTUS as simply a reality tv star.
