Daniel Schorr on journalism, politics, and truth

From To the Best of Our Knowledge, a 2008 conversation with Daniel Schorr about journalism, politics, and truth. A useful reminder that before Dunning K. Trump there was Bush the Second, of whose administration Schorr says, “These are people who in a sense have mounted a coup inside the government against the government.” And before Bush the Second there was Richard Nixon, who, as Schorr reminds us, was famously caught on tape observing that “The press is the enemy.”
