Atlantic Editor Jeffrey Goldberg: Trump Going To Be Responsible For Violence Against Journalists


Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, said Wednesday President Trump calling the mainstream media "enemies of the state" (editor's note: Trump said "enemy of the people") will inspire someone "to do something violent against journalists in a large way."

"Well, part of my reaction is that we’re are all engaged in a reality TV show. That this is a reality TV version of a war between the president and the press," Goldberg said in an interview with Yahoo! News' Katie Couric.

"The problem is, and this is what I worry about more than anything else, is that there are people in the country who don’t understand that this a cynical reality TV game," Goldberg said. "And are going to hear over and over again from the president that the reporters, journalists are enemies of the state... and someone is going to do something violent against journalists in a large way, and then I know where the fault lies"
