Media Critic Touts Leakers: ‘True Patriots’ ‘Protecting’ Us from Trump

March 26th, 2018 6:03 PM
One of the major joys for a liberal journalist covering the Trump White House is arguably when they get a leak that can embarrass the administration.

July 2nd, 2017 2:42 PM
If there were two things President Trump knew how to do well, it’s tweet and get under the skin of the folks at CNN.
