"Between Trump polling the press. The enemy of the people to so much news hitting your social media feet. You don't know what to believe there's never been more chaos confusion mistrust of American media. So here to help make sense of all this is former executive editor of the New York Times and author of the new book merchants of truth Jill Abramson. They do so much for joining us here. Hugh, as I just mentioned, Donald Trump has waged an all out war on the media. He calls the media fake news. Right. Yeah. Is of the of the people what is your take on that? I mean has that really damaged the American trusts in the news. I the Americans trust in the news was pretty low before Trump was elected. I think he's playing to his base by attacking the press. Most of all I think it's outrageous and anti-democratic in a fundamental way because the press was made free by the founders of this country because they trusted the news media to hold power accountable and Brin the public and voters the reliable information that they needed. So it just seems. Undemocratic. Yes. And even on patriotic. I mean, the first amendment is first for Reza. You yourself have made news because you said, quote, the New York Times is unmistakably anti-trump. Do you think that the New York Times is guilty of the liberal bias that many people have accused them of? I mean, I'm one of the people that have called the New York Times the New York slimes before because I thought the bias was so intense is earning culpability on the journalist part as well. Well, you know, I don't know that I'd use the word by s but there's no question that the New York Times is a liberal paper. It's headquartered in New York. It's reflects the interests of people who live on the blue coasts of this country. And you know, sometimes I think it's a matter of just there too many. Trump stories all at once that he would call those are the bad store is you know, that cat, you know, that are probing that are looking at things like did he evade gift taxes, you know, the essence of the Muller prob-? That's news sent knee. Everyone needs to know. But maybe not like five at once. He's themselves. Inaccurate. No. They're they're not inaccurate. They are they are they doing well does that do to stories instead of well, I worked at the Wall Street Journal for eight years, and there we would try to combine certain things. So that there weren't multiple stories. The thing most of all rather than political bias that worries me is the news media. So reactive President Trump and hit all of his tweet scale. Does that help him in a way? Well, it helps him because you. You know, after twenty seasons of the apprentice, he knows how to manipulate the news media. He is the master. So a why are they playing into that? Because he's the president and the norms of journalism is our that you cover what the president's. He's news every ten seconds well to it's fake news. But the New York Times has to figure that out my and And then then would. would want sorry to interrupt you. But my criticism would be the cultural reporting because Trump's win was a huge shock and the Geordie of journalists were on the road with him. And then other people like Selena Zito who she lives in rural Pennsylvania. It didn't come as a prize to her. So my criticism is just if you're not understanding the people you reporting on your can't understand where gun owner in rural Pennsylvania comes from. You're going to get the story wrong. So how someone like the New York Times? Would you just hire? Journalists were living in the field. Would you would you send journalists out in a different way? Because the cultural criticism is the strongest true because you know, you are reflecting the point of view, and it may be yours too. As journalists there of the blue to Cho's. And when I was an editor at the times, we actually did open bureaus in can't Kansas City and in Phoenix because we wanted reporters at least but in in the middle saying that the New York Times. Blurs the front page with the opinion page, all you know. But I think blurs, no. But I find in a certain kind of story..

"Welcome back. So there are measles. Outbreaks happening in Washington state and Oregon right now. Yeah. Then have parents furious that people who refuse to vaccinate the kids they say, the anti vaxxers putting their kids lives at risk study up to study has found that there's absolutely no link no link between vaccinations and autism. So why doesn't this conspiracy theory die that is the question and how we still dealing with measles? Outbreaks at this point. They were staying up to fifty cases. My my brother and his wife and their two year old son live, right where this happening right outside Seattle. And I got a call from my sister and other day and her son's been sick. And she said, I got a note from someone in the class who said the teacher who said there's been a student who we think might have the measles. He's gonna get checked it hits so close to home and she and he's gotten his shots. But it's so unfair to the parents who are giving their kids vaccines. But if you're not to yet, you could be in a really tough position if you want to give the vaccine you haven't gone, you're not old enough yet. The guy who started this conspiracy this lie. His name is Andrew Wakefield British surgeon. This is what happened and. The truth of the matter is that he was creating a competing vaccine he had a patent for his own vaccine say so he had a motivation to put this lie out. Not only that but lawyers were suing the the drug companies and making money for themselves. Damn low all of this has. Right. All about the money. Shakespeare verse we killed the lawyers. But but that is really how this whole thing started, and that what does mushroom and just one more point. Then a let you Tong these of the following states that give full of philosophical exemptions. Not everybody does. So if you say, you have a religious reason or about Bilbao, they will let you go to school without vaccinations, thus contaminating how the children possibly Arizona. Sorry Arkansas Colorado zone. That's you Louisiana. Maine. Some of them are red states. Some of them a blue state. You're not a political thing. Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri. North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania everywhere, Utah, Washington. Let's say you are, you know, Utah's not in it. You tell wasn't on that list Utah. It's right here. Yeah. You talk. So basically. So if you're an Arizona, Utah play in just you say, I don't I don't like it. And then you could your Your kids. days are what you call. Oh, listen, these philosophical exemptions, every state has religious exemptions. So I know everything I say home school your kids that how about this philosophical exemptions. No. Down to make this like totally dark, but when my father had cancer, and he was getting treatment. I would see a lot of children getting treatment as well. And being brought in some of them had the same cancer that my dad had some of Matt other cancers and win all people are going through cancer. You get chemotherapy, and you're more susceptible to getting diseases beings of your compromised immune. So the problem that I have with this is if you don't wanna vaccinate your child. I think it's insane. But okay, whatever, but you are actually putting the lives of other children exam danger and children who could be suffering and are also for their lives at the moment. And I know that there was a case of a man who went viral after he was talking about my child is in the hospital, and your she may have the Musil's, and this is the real life ramifications. So if you can't protect your own children, at least think of the families who are suffering through cancer treatments and chemotherapy and the possible harm and life threatening danger. You're putting us to be it has to be an actual law because you can't agree to go along. I noted on federal Bill, but it's different from state to state, but all states have medical exemption. So if your child medically can't have these certain vaccination, that's one thing I think all states have religious exemptions. But I wasn't aware of these philosophical exemptions. I mean, that's too long. That I don't believe in it. Balance your rear about children with? Yeah. And you can't really and I also want to point out Seattle. The police vaccination rate is lower than in Rwanda..

"The lies about immigration the lies about and he also said this he said, oh, by the way, you know, I want more legal immigrants come into the country than ever before he has the lowest cap for legal immigration. He really wants thirty thousand legal immigrants to come and only know lowest in any way. But it play area from any other country was except the beige read Meghan. No. It's lost his lies. Can I speak now? Yeah. Yes. So the state of the union at least for me, it is a time where we can find some unifying message. It's also a time. When if you're president you won the election, you have the platform, and that's why when Obama was president he talked about healthcare when that moment famously when the Representative said, you wide, so the president's every right to talk about immigration that was my favorite part of the speech personally, there were some really strong moments last night. He was less about Trump for me. It was more about inspiring stories in the guests that were invited to the speech that that gave me chills. One of those was this moment that's never happened. The state of the union were happy birthday was sung to Judah Samut who was turned AB one yesterday. He was a call holocaust survivor, and he survived the mass shooting at the tree of life synagogue. I think we have a clip of that if we can play it. We don't we don't there will there was that. There was also Alison regents and talking about criminal Justice reform. I don't know if we have the clip that was him team ninety seven Alice was sentenced to life in prison as a first time non violent drug offender in June. I commuted Alice's sense. She is a terrific woman. Terrific alice. Please. I think there were some moments that if you could step away and say, look, I want to take them take the president of city. But let's see if you can focus on some things that is bigger than the president of people with prompt. Well, why is that? It tight about generally. All right. We're gonna come back and talk about Stacey Abrams who gave the rebuttal because she was really interesting. We'll be right back. Okay. So there's a big election coming and the candidates are lining up to run for. Can't do impossible things when you come together. It is raining candidates here on the new place different news. This country is ready for gay person. Only one way to find out. Thank all one thing in common the comes here because this is the best place to in this epic year ahead anybody who's anybody. We want to make it to the next one politics has to come on this show because this is the place to be her Republican wanna make news come on the show. View on ABC. Still ahead. Former New York Times editor Jill Abramson on what President Trump's war with the media. And the rise of online news sites means for the future of the free press in America. Welcome back. Okay. So as advertised we're talking about the state of the union rebuttal. They don't have a great track record these products in the past. I mean, Rocco Rubio had water problems. He was dry. Remember the water? He was drinking. And then should remember that Joe Kennedy had a chapstick issue is what chapped the the dreaded Michelle Bachmann looking at the wrong camera. So but gentle and. Yeah. Avi gentle, but it was on his house or something. It's really not a break. So imagine how how much better this look last night to those former Georgia gubernatorial national candidates, Stacey Abrams broke the curse last night by delivering a powerful democratic response. Let's watch it even as I am very disappointed by the president's approach to our problems. I still don't want him to fail, but we need him to tell the truth and to respect his duties and respect the extrordinary diversity that defines America. So she says she doesn't want the president to fail. And when she said that I thought I wonder how many Democrats agree with that? Because to me if the country is failing because he's so awful, then I'd want him to fail to because I want someone to kind of insane..

"Your f- two year. Capitalist Americans are murdered by criminal illegal aliens in the past most of the people in this room voted for a wall, but the proper wall never got built. I will get it built. First of all, let me just say that the so many things to say those three things he just said number one was the the woman's go for the war. The majority of Americans don't want the wall. They think it's stupid then crime amongst illegal or legal immigrants is so far down that mostly. It's it's Americans who are committing crimes in this country. And it's a lie. Yeah. And what was the other one? Oh about the investigations does the name Richard Nixon ring a bell medicine? Nixon said I'm not with the Watergate and then less than two hundred days later. He was gone. Yeah. So these investigations veteran that train has left the station, Honey. And there's nothing you can do about it. Right down very own might take. I thought it was kind of a dark speech. It seemed to be at the beginning about unity. And I was like, oh, well, this sounds pretty good. And it was Reagan esque in that sense. But then it took a turn when it started talking about the wall. He wasn't really reading the the room. Well, I felt like that's when people really I mean, it didn't have that you lie moment. But I thought people starting rumbling allot. Yeah. And then you know, I felt that there were a lot of lies there. He started talking about undocumented immigrants, and he was using that term illegal alien he's sort of resurfaced that people are not illegal acts are illegal. And I think we need to start saying that more and more and more. It's about fun documented immigrants that was the first thing that I noticed and then he starts talking about undocumented immigrants committing more crime. We'll know forty four it's less. I think the stats are they commit? About forty four. They're less likely to commit they were about forty four percent less likely to be incarcerated than native born America. And so that that just not mind the room and the audience over and artisan lives for twenty twenty though a lot of the candidates already announced and will more than likely be announcing. So a lot of this was also for juice signaling to his base, which does while with immigration when he was talking about why do you have about? But when he's saying he's saying things like I'm going to butcher this excuse me. I was up late on the coverage. But when the politicians with their walls and guarded security that is a siren call to his base. That's watching right now. And I think it started out I agree with you. I was like who doesn't love astronauts and veterans and men who were on the beaches of Normandy. The those are wonderful things. I everyone can get behind and then intervened where his policies and virtue signals for twenty twenty which is normal for a president to do for me. What was hard for me last night as I was propping and getting ready, and I was reading my notes beforehand and. If I get a notice that President Trump had had a meeting with the network heads, and he had called Senator Chuck Schumer, a nasty son of a bitch. Joe Biden dumb said some disparaging things once again, a my father who passed five and a half months ago. So for me when he's talking about. We must reject the politics of revenge resistance and retro was the best you aren't being BI partisan. Yeah. Mere hours earlier obsessing over people, you consider your enemies. So ver me, it was a kabuki theatre virtue signal the entire speech last night towards his base. But please don't sit here and tell me you are grasping for bipartisanship at this moment when Chuck Schumer is the son of a bitch and my father's book, quote bombed and Joe Biden is quote, don't How that. do have to go after somebody who's dick? Yeah. I know. I don't know what why he keeps bringing that up. Because what are you gain by that? I even if you're in the base, I mean, I don't I don't think anyone can can. The lives that are immediately fact checked, I I would think it at this point, especially the lies about the wall..

"Okay. So wait a minute. Is he so clueless that he actually thinks that the reason there are women congress and these numbers because he did something right opposite. Yeah. He's taking credit when he really should take the blame on my wrong about this. They were I thought they were trolling him. I think they were they were they were bay ran because they didn't like his policies. Why I found it to be just an empowering moment for women. I saw like one of Trump's not going to be in office forever. And so there were a number of. No, we do have. It's no. But I thought it was a moment that we could all get on our feet and be so proud of how far we've come. Obviously, I think the Republican party has a lot of work to get women to run into win. I mean, isn't it? Unbelievable. It if you decide well, I mean, we're me like I read with your assessment that I did think it was trolling on their pardon. By the way, take the moment when it comes state of unions are so much a part of sort of signaling your politics, in one way or another to your base of supporters. So that they and they did as a deck and even just wearing the white the white suits. But make no mistake these are liberal democratic women. So for me as a woman when you see women not applauding for the twenty week abortion ban. Which by the way, seventy to eighty percent of women democrat and Republican in the country are against this women's issues is complicated for me because I'm not a liberal woman. So to say like, oh, amazing women are getting elected. Well for me. I thought it was weird to see some people clapping when it's like for me. I'd like to see more conservative women in. My vein. Not Trump women, but conservative women's got elected. But the feather in the cap of the wave of democratic congresswoman who were recently elected one hundred percents. They were in the right taking their moment. Let up late if I'm understand what you're saying. Because I liked the idea that women there, but I don't want somebody who's like Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann. Well, that's the thing is women's issues is all convoluted like all women vote the same way how the same ideas we've done you'll this same way about abortion look at this title. So I think it's it's it's misguided to have this applause for the president at the same time because this wave was real, and it was a mass rejection of him of rice, so many women coming up and wait as conservative women, we need to see this bright and clear they're not lot of Republican women. They're getting elected. I don't remember the exact numbers. But I know it's like it's like four to one razor you. Yeah. You that why don't conservative women like you, go out there and say cold caller, what it is that the emperor is. Wearing no clothes elected. Can they be though? I don't know in this fever because of the Jimmy is loud and strong aid over eighty percent of Republicans support President Trump for me. I'm a classic classic Jack Kemp conservative, and I can't get on board with this populace phenomenon. It was weird to see Republicans, by the way clapping against trade. We're supposed to be the party of radio them because it because the party has reinvented itself in the form of the golden God of Trump me, I wouldn't run because I would get primary by by a Trump supporter, and they're what's what's the purpose of that? When I have this wonderful job here at the nets. Really both sides of the right? He was received for better than his first state of the union, some cold it Reagan-esque. Really? Yes. It was. It was very let me show. Sorry talk. Let's I'm talking. Is taking place in the United States. And the only thing that can stop. It are foolish wars politics or ridiculous partisan investigations..

"The Armstrong and Getty show. There is going to be peace and legislation. There cannot be war and investigation. Okay. That didn't make sense. But it Ryan. I wonder if Trump just wrote a bunch of rhymes to try and stop the investigation. He was just sitting in front of the mirror like life is without Robert Muller. So if you're if you're just and heard this yet seventy five percent approval for the speech on CNN CBS. Yep. Seventy five percent. With the president with a forty percent approval rating and ninety percent of the media hates him. Right. Listen to this would you? This is such a beautiful example of media bias. And it's so subtle from the failing New York Times, which is not failing at all. Because they've gone so anti-trump in their news coverage, according to Jill Abramson, their former editor, correct? Here's your headline. And it was interesting flipped. My apple news, which curates news for me based on their algorithms. And I thought okay, how biased is this going to be? Here's your headline from the New York Times one word that shows the bias Trump asks for unity, but presses hard line on immigration. The biased word is. Trump asks for unity, impresses hard line on immigration, seventy two percent approval on the ideas. He expressed about immigration seventy two percent highlights of the speech marshalls news next on.

"We'll be negative if he respond to that. Because they support us great. If they responded that because they hate Trump great because they'll go away over Peter. Not sure that the eggs are from the book that you read is criticism. I'm just it's true. Trump has been a gold mine for television ratings and for newspapers. So that's all on. That is true. I wanted to talk about this pew study and people have a general distrust for the media and in the suggestion, I get from reading the book is that if we tone that back a bit that would help the media regain trust. And it seems like we're well beyond then. Now, I I'm not talking about Tony down. But I am talking about maybe better module. Relation like often.

We could talk for a long time by your book. Go read it. It's great. What surprised you about the Washington Post when you spent time writing about that company that thing that surprised me immediately? When I started going there to interview journalists was that it seems so happy because you expect them to be complaining about Basil's and the new not necessarily, but it was such a contrast to you. I spent twenty two years of my career in Washington in the Washington bureau of the Wall Street Journal, and then I was Washington bureau chief of the times and during all of that time, I mean, they were so reducing their staff, and it was just depression city over there. And. Yeah, people whose criticism. Awesome. I respect a lot like Jim fallow. We're saying in what they wrote that the quality of the newspaper was suffering. And so was you know, misery alley and then you know, what I found on day one was Happy Valley. And and that's just you know, it was surprising. It's not like I expected them to be sour grapes about Jeff Bezos spot just to have such a quick turn. Or I figured their honeymoon period where you've got money and someone says they want to invest and they've been losing assets and losing people for a long time. And then after a while the billionaire in this case, the tech billionaire would go what am I doing here with this company?

"And we're back with Joe Abramson been admonished by Golda. Yes. I have my rings are audible. So I apologize from here on out. We were talking off air before we got started about the book tour, and how it started earlier than you thought it would in response basically to to criticism the book had gotten before it even showed up on anyone's shelves. I think there's two spines of criticism to use your metaphor one is mostly on Twitter saying you've got some facts wrong. I'll let you little gate that with your with your Twitter people, and the other is Jill Abramson doesn't like the internet. She doesn't like digital media. She's nearing at this stuff. And that's informed. Some of the original Twitter criticism. I think to there's a new Republic interview of interview story, we says some of the sections where you're talking about BuzzFeed and vice read like Abramson is speaking from a place of ill informed bitterness over prince loss of supremacy jewelry bidder now. And you know, I am an acolyte of clay Shirke and in his fantastic article about newspapers, dying his conclusion was you just have to stop morning and focus on there as a human need for great, storytelling and reliable information. And wherever it's distributed. It's great and just stop at. And I you know, I've believed that since probably before he wrote that article which was a long long time ago. So you're not just talking about whether the times is delivered to your doorstep or to an app you're talking about whether it comes from some person on the internet. You never heard of versus enough start versus the times if they're good. In fact, checked and verified your. Happy with totally obviously. And you've read the book, I really don't think it has that. I was I I will say I got the book, and I read to the stuff the initial complaint was about someone who worked advice news who's who's upset with the way you portrayed her. And when I read the Twitter stuff at that. Oh, this is Jill Abramson sneering at the people advice, you read the chapter, and you're not you're kind of admiring and how cool they are. You definitely sell admiring of their durable. Yes. And and you have you have real criticisms of Shane Smith in in in some of the misogyny there, but you taking vice seriously. That's why you're writing about it. And then BuzzFeed in particular, I think I mean, you've real admirations for a lot of journalism. They're doing for Ben Smith, you can just sort of comes off the page, and I was a little I just figured, oh, there's going to be dichotomy where you've got the old guys who is on the side of. And here's the young sort of Callo upstarts, and how's it going to work out? But you take them very seriously land to me what I loved about the narrative. Spine of this story is that, you know, at first buzz feed in vice are really, you know, doing content that event real news Zun, it's doing content with a capital seat. Not news. Yeah. And Joan parody described his audience as the bored at work network, which I love and at the point. I started reporting both Feis and BuzzFeed had jumped into news. And I thought by says weekly show on HBO was really sort of addictive fen end informative of and you know. Buzzfeed's just BuzzFeed site. I looked at every every morning, and they always had kind of an interesting hard news story that I hadn't seen anywhere else. And I recommended in terms of sneering, I recommended, you know, people to both companies who were hired while I was working on the book because I thought they were glass in it. And it looked like fun and interesting to be in their newsrooms. I think it'd be easy to discount both those organizations for a while. Because when even when vice Digital's him a lot of stunt journalism sending Dennis Rodman to North Korea. And I for a long time thought that what BuzzFeed was doing was the huffpost playbook, which is you get a lot of all you m-. You don't publish a lot of stuff. That's that's great. And then because you wanna be taken more. Seriously, you hire a handful of people from the times or places like that. But you don't really intend to create a news organization. You.

"You know, the times is going through round after round of buyouts something that still happens occasionally there and at other places, but it was especially intensive this time because it felt like the entire future. The paper was on the line the idea of a digital. Subscriptions was still so new and so novel, and and so on tested that it was a very stressful time at the paper.

It knows how to gain subscribers knows how to keep growing that base. And it knows how to write what those subscri-. Fibers really want. I think in many ways, it's a great change. I understand there's concern about it as well though, Jill Abramson expresses concern in her in her book. That's coming out soon about the times writing so many stories about Trump to to please Scribner's. I don't show by that. She shows took issue with editorializing in the headlines, which is something that I think is unique to Trump. I don't know. How can you avoid doing that? I think it's kind of a necessary part of the job particularly during heated times during the run up to the Iraq war is a lot of it to realizing the headlines, she's as the papers, anti Trump, and I think that's really hurtful to reform our colleagues, it's like saying the papers anti-crime, I mean, if there's a lot of crimes going on. You've got to cover the crime. I think that's true..
