Opinion: Why Aren’t Editorial Boards Screaming: Trump Has to Go?

By the height of the Watergate scandal in 1974, virtually every major newspaper in America had called for President Richard Nixon’s resignation. During the investigation and impeachment of Bill Clinton in 1998, more than 100 newspapers called for him to resign.

But President Donald J. Trump? He could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody… and not a single major daily newspaper would call for his resignation.

    One must forgive Bill Clinton’s press secretary, Mr. Lockhart, for forgetting history and having an elastic beltway memory. Of the 2000 some daily newspapers at the times he mentions, the were very few who called for Nixon’s resignation until after the scandal became an issue of law, and then it still wasn’t the overwhelming wave reflected. In the case of Clinton, well,100 of some 1900 dailys and several thousand weeklies was hardly a mass scream, and, when you think obout it, perhaps not as many as have un-braided Trump.

    Please! Joe…. CNN is the official arm of the Democrat party. CNN has lost all credibility. You have abandoned all journalistic values by your biased reporting. It seems CNN proudly roots against America and will do or say anything to bring down a president who refuses to bend the knee to a morally bankrupt media, who’s anti Republican agenda is sickening and blatant. Shame on you CNN, you make it difficult for those in the industry who strive for Journalism excellence every day. A change at the very top of your organization is needed, if you wish to win back your audience… Shame!
