Top WashPost Editor Martin Baron Rants About Team Trump ‘Disqualifying’ the Press

Posted on 31 March 2019

Washington Post executive editor Martin Baron was interviewed on stage at Washington & Lee University on Tuesday, and went full "Democracy Dies in Darkness" after making jokes about President Trump's gaffe of calling Apple boss Tim Cook "Tim Apple." To Baron, the Trump administration isn't just disparaging journalists, they're "trying to disqualify" all "independent arbiters of fact," from the press to scientists to law enforcement officers and intelligence agents, and even doctors. It's quite a conspiracy theory.
