Washington Free Beacon
April 24, 2018
Washington Free Beacon staff writer Elizabeth Harrington said Monday on Fox Business that the media spin stories to hurt President Donald Trump “just because it’s Trump,” even if the news is beneficial to him.
Harrington noted to host Charles Payne that, after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced over the weekend that his country would halt its nuclear and missile tests ahead of a planned summit with Trump, the media praised Kim’s negotiating rather than Trump’s diplomacy.
“They can’t give Trump credit for anything,” Harrington said of the media. “If this was [former President Barack] Obama, he would be getting the [Nobel] Peace Prize.”
Harrington also said that Trump should continue to bait the media because they continue to give him free coverage and “no one” has a high opinion of them anymore.
