Considered one of the great legal minds in the U.S., Alan Dershowitz forms his opinions based on rule of law — not something the liberal mainstream media is interested in these days.

The Harvard professor and famed TV contributor and writer on issues of law says he has been shut out by The New York Times and other liberal outlets recently because his objective opinions don't fit "the narrative they're pushing" on President Donald Trump and his administration, he told the Washington Examiner.

Despite the fact that Dershowitz remains an unabashed "liberal Hillary Clinton supporter."

"It's not that I'm not credentialed," Dershowitz told the Examiner. "It's that I don't have the right point of view."

Dershowitz told the Examiner he's been shopping his opinion that Donald Trump Jr. did nothing illegal by meeting with a Russian lawyer who purported to have dirt on Clinton — something of value from a foreign entity.

Before that, Dershowitz reached out to The Times to counter arguments that President Trump had obstructed or done something illegal by firing former FBI Director James Comey.

"I said that I thought the readers of The New York Times were entitled to hear or read the other side of the issue whether there were crimes committed," Dershowitz told the Examiner.

Dershowitz said he never heard back from editors at The Times.

"And I really do think The New York Times does not want its readers to hear an alternative point of view on the issue of whether or not Trump administration is committing crimes," he told the Examiner.
