CNN's Brian Stelter: 'Fake News' Label Is Verbal "Poison"


CNN's Brian Stelter host Carl Bernstein and others to discuss whether President Trump has become "Nixonian" in his hatred of the media.

BRIAN STELTER, CNN: These actions and these words matter. His words inspire many people, but they instill fear in many others. His words are what won him the election. Words like 'Crooked' and 'Build a Wall.'

It happened in secret...

BERNSTEIN: Trump's attacks on the American press are more treacherous than Nixon's attacks on the press.
