Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward chided the media for opting to engage in biased coverage of President Donald Trump rather than doing the hard work of investigative White House reporting.

Appearing at a question-and-answer session following the screening of "All The President's Men" in Washington — the 1976 political thriller based on Woodward and Carl Bernstein's book on the Watergate scandal — Woodward was asked what he thought of the media's treatment of Trump, The Daily Caller reported.

Woodward offered an example of The New York Times' list of the president's "lies" as an example of how some of his statements were wrongly categorized, the Daily Caller reported.

“[Number three on the list] was that Trump said he was on the cover of Time magazine 14 or 15 times when it was in fact 11 times … That’s not a lie,” Woodward said, suggesting it was a trivial misstatement.

”Tone matters, and headlines matter, and you want people to [trust you]," Woodward said.

“[It] really betrays the anti-Trump media bias,” he added. “I think a kind of brief, deeply fair-mindedness is essential, but as essential or maybe more essential is a game plan for reporting this and going to Moscow and finding the bookkeeper,” he said, referring to a key figure whose information helped lead to the resignation of President Richard Nixon.
