You can watch the full interview now
"You know, one of the main criticisms that I’ve voiced about the Beltway media is that they’re not adversarial to the government at all, but actually that they are servants of the government, mouthpieces for it.
I think it’s almost like Christmas, for those of us who believe that, to watch this gift being handed to us that so vividly proves it,
that rather than defend what is supposed to be their right that they are supposed to safeguard, which is freedom of the press,
they’re leading the chorus against other journalists on behalf of the government that they serve, demanding essentially and theorizing that we’re guilty of crimes for doing what journalists are supposed to do, which is shining a light on what political officials are doing in the dark."
