Media Is More Hostile To Trump Than Any President Since Lincoln

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich weighs in on the discredited BuzzFeed story on FOX News Sunday:

CHRIS WALLACE: How damaging is the "BuzzFeed" story and the almost total knockdown by the special counsel to the media?

GINGRICH: Well, it comes on top of the previous week's "New York Times" story that such Trump could be a Russian agent, until you get to paragraph nine when it said, actually there's no proof at all that this story is true. I mean you had this continuous --​


WALLACE: This was a story that there was a counterintelligence investigation by the FBI.

GINGRICH: Right. Yes, and then they said they found nothing and it's not true.

WALLACE: Right. That he was a Russian agent.

GINGRICH: But the headline.

WALLACE: Right.

GINGRICH: Trump said about 90 percent negative. And I did tell him -- he tweeted about this. I said to him, I think he's had the worst media hostility since Lincoln. I think you cannot find any other president who has been a relentless and ending assault, much of it dishonest. And, of course, Mueller, frankly, saved my bacon because I was on "Fox and Friends" and had not seen the report and they said, well, what about "BuzzFeed," and I said it's a lie. And luckily it turned out Mueller said, yes, it's not true.

WALLACE: Yes, you did say it was a lie.​
