Howie Kurtz weighed in today on the front page story from the NY Times on Trump dodging the Vietnam draft – the story we told you about yesterday.
Kurtz said the story never should have been published in the first place, that it should have been tossed by the editors.
He also makes the point that this ‘investigative’ piece, which amounts to nothing but speculation, shows that there’s a completely different standard when reporting on Trump as opposed to other presidents.
Kurtz argues that there’s a ‘business model’ for news organizations to be opposed to Trump, such that articles get published about this president that wouldn’t have been published for other presidents whose initials weren’t “DJT”. Ouch!
Kurtz all but accuses the media of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
