WashPost Stands by Reporters, Also Rips President Trump

By    |   Saturday, 07 September 2019 03:33 PM EDT

After President Donald Trump ripped two reporters for The Washington Post for being critical, an editor objected by doing the same thing – ripping the president for being critical.

The modern-day media vs. president vs. media vs. president barbs coming around full circle were shared via Twitter by a public relations vice president Saturday:

"From Executive Editor Martin Baron: The Washington Post is immensely proud to have these two superb journalists on staff. Philip Rucker and Ashley Parker have consistently their integrity in covering the White House.

We stand fully behind them and their important work. The president’s statement fits into a pattern of seeking to denigrate and intimidate the press.

"It's unwarranted and dangerous, and it represents a threat to a free press in this country."

President Trump called them "two nasty lightweight reporters" via Twitter on Saturday, suggesting they should be barred from the White House for "disgusting and fake" news:

"The Washington Post's @PhilipRucker (Mr. Off the Record) & @AshleyRParker, two nasty lightweight reporters, shouldn't even be allowed on the grounds of the White House because their reporting is so DISGUSTING & FAKE."
