The Media Research Center’s Tim Graham on Friday declared that “hatred and the loathing and the disgust” is a lot easier to spot from journalists these days. Appearing on Fox and Friends to promote Unmasked: Big Media's War Against Trump, Graham called for journalists to simply do their jobs: “We want reporters to tell us what happened today. What did politicians say today? And I would even like them to say what politicians said in public instead of always what they said behind the scenes.”
He added, “What's a lot easier to pick out today is the hatred and the loathing and the disgust. They seem to lead with that instead of leading with the facts.”
