After Losing Credibility and Readers, NYT & WAPO Editors Say They Owe Trump Supporters Their Respect

Dean Baquet and Marty Baron, executive editors of the NYT and Washington Post respectively, joined NBC’s resident Sunday morning soft skull, Chuck Todd, this weekend to talk about how the Trump administration has waged war on the media's sometime unsourced and fact free-based reporting, and what news outlets should do to push back.  When asked about why people support Trump despite Todd accusations of false allegations against the media, both Baquet and Baron agreed that both of their papers have to do a better job of covering Trump supporters.
"I don’t want to be dismissive of people that support our president. They’re owed our respect they certainly have mine. They feel the so-called elites in Washington have not paid attention to them, that they don’t understand their lives…They feel that the president is actually listening to them and addressing their concerns and so they tend to believe him."
Baquet said he agreed with Baron.
“We have to do a better job understanding why some people support Donald Trump. "I think we cannot dismiss everybody whose supported Donald Trump and everybody and we just cannot dismiss them. First off, that’s not journalistically moral, it’s journalistically moral to reach out, understand the world and to be read that’s our job."
It seems a bit late in coming to me, if not downright disingenuous. Now that they have realized they may have just reelected DJT with their leftist propaganda that encouraged hate and cultivated the emotional infancy upon which the left is wholly reliant they see the light?? What changed? Why respect us now after they have dragged us through the mud, dehumanized us, insulted us, threatened us....failing to call out the violence of angry Lefties that are beating anyone with a RedHat.

Enough with the idiotic pretense. You're leftist propagandists. Nothing more. What's worse than a bunch of the disingenuous Hamptons/Martha’s Vineyard/DC/NYC set opining about how to “communicate” with Americans outside their bubble that hold different morals and standards from themselves.
