Ben Stein: Media Searching For A Scandal, "Hoping" To Do To Trump What They Did To Nixon

|

In an interview with CNN on Saturday, Ben Stein said the media is "turning the woods upside down" to find a scandal so they can do to him what they did to Nixon.

"Every day, they're looking for a scandal," Stein said. "They're just turning the woods upside down looking for a scandal. They're hoping, I think, to do to him what they did to Nixon a long time ago. And, you know, still haven't found any real scandals."

BEN STEIN: I wouldn't say that all of the media is the enemy of the people. Look, every day you pick up The New York Times, every day they're slamming, slamming, slamming him. I'm a great fan of CNN, I watch it quite faithfully, every day CNN is slamming him, slamming him, slamming him. Every day, they're looking for a scandal. They're just turning the woods upside down looking for a scandal. They're hoping, I think, to do to him what they did to Nixon a long time ago. And, you know, still haven't found any real scandals.

And with all due respect, I don't blame him for being furious at them. And I think he's got a lot of company. I'm out there giving speeches all around the country all the time, people -- an awful lot of people are not great fans of the media, and they see the media as an unelected aristocracy... who are dumping all over the mainstream of America. And I think Mr. Trump has a lot of company.
