Dean Baquet, executive editor of The New York Times, doesn't buy Donald Trump's ongoing charges the media is biased against his him and his bid for the presidency.

"That's sort of ridiculous," the veteran journalist told New York Magazine's Gabriel Sherman.

"The media is tough on him, but I was getting the same complaints from the Clinton campaign and from the Sanders campaign, and now I get them from the Trump campaign."

And those accusations of unfair reportage may just indicate that the media is right on the money, Baquet suggests.

"If every major candidate thinks you're too tough on them and biased against them, you're probably doing a good job," he said.

Since his campaign began, the billionaire real-estate tycoon has ripped a number of media outlets, including the Times, which he believes slant coverage to project a liberal agenda.
