Bob Woodward the legendary Watergate reporter and author of the new anti-Trump book "Fear" recently spoke out against CNN's lawsuit against the Trump administration. He said that the media is emotionally unhinged when it comes to Trump and that this emotional reaction is playing right into Trump's hands.

According to Fox News:

Bob Woodward, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Watergate journalist whose recent book, "Fear," described chaotic infighting at the White House, on Tuesday criticized CNN for filing a lawsuit against the Trump administration and charged that too many media figures "have become emotionally unhinged."

Speaking at the Global Financial Leadership Conference in Naples, Florida, Woodward said "the remedy [isn’t suing the administration]. ... It’s more serious reporting about what he’s doing.” NBC reporter Dylan Byers first flagged Woodward's comments.


“In the news media there has been an emotional reaction to Trump,” Woodward said. “Too many people for Trump or against Trump have become emotionally unhinged about this.”

Woodward added that CNN was taking Trump's "bait" by enlisting high-profile lawyer Ted Olson to pursue a federal case. "This is a negative," Woodward said. "Trump is sitting around saying, ‘This is great.'”

Other media outlets have opined that this is a bad move for CNN. CNN is suing Trump, his administration, and even the Secret Service Agent who took Acosta's pass claiming that they violated Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights by punishing him for his speech without due process.
