Carl Bernstein depicted the contentious nature of politics as being in the middle of a "cold civil war" as President Trump pushes back against what he calls "fake news" and various news outlets are perceived as espousing different "truths."
Appearing on CNN's "Reliable Sources" on Sunday, alongside Leonard Downie, former executive editor and vice president of the Washington Post, Bernstein compared the current media climate to that of the Watergate era. He stressed the importance of anonymous sources and said "quote 'leaks' which really are not leaks" are instead "mostly reporters trying very hard to get truthful information and put some context to this story."(continued)

Perhaps “warm” war would be a better choice of words? With the fascist ANTIFA and BLM going out and trying to start a war, it really cant be called “cold”.
It is not a matter of ‘different truths’.
The Opposition Party is flat out lying!
This is what an enemy does!
The Opposition Party is acting like an enemy.
More fake news from a denizen of the Deep State Swamp!
Carl Bernstein forgets America who made him. He is now a citizen of the world. He needs to be diminished - put in his correct place.
Sounds like he is calling for the tightening of the MSM monopoly.
Instead the monopoly should be broken up and foreign investment in it should be banned on national security grounds.
If it goes hot, Carl will be one of the first casualties.
The truth about this headline and the premise, is that it is insane. I don’t care what his credentials are
When a major spokesman for one side is using terms like ‘different truths’ they are struggling for logic
I mean as a judeo Christian society, the Bible does hold at least some guidance even now. There are no different truths according the Bible
Just to force the issue
This is actually insane.
..Ted Kennedy left a woman to die in a river.
Bill Clinton had weird sex in the Oval Office with a barely legal intern.
Obama ran guns to Mexican drug lords and gave billions to terrorist states.
Biden makes creepy and sexist comments and publicly fondles women
Hillary Clinton endangered Americans, released classified intel, wiped her illegal server and destroyed mobile devices, left 4 American heroes to die and lied about it being caused by some stupid BS video, sold nuclear material to our enemies, and took money from terrorist-producing countries.
John Edwards was indicted for using campaign funds to hide his mistress.
Rod Blagojevich is in prison for trying to sell Obamas senate seat.
Anthony Weiner well, need I say more.
So Please Democrats....lecture us on what is “beneath” a political office. You have so much experience in that area..........
"Jesus Christ, Superstar"
In other words, Conservatives, finally sick of New York Liberal Media control of the "news", is at last fighting back.
Conservatives need to control the Broadcast networks. Not liberals. They've had 60 years of monopoly control of the "news" and they deliberately censor news that is bad for liberal policies.
It's time to take control of the airwaves away from them and let the public hear the rest of the story.
Get it out of New York and put it in Podunk Kansas and you will solve much of the problem of "globalist" mindsets controlling the news.
And let us not mistake this. New York control of the News is why Bill Clinton got elected, and it's why Barack Obama got elected. They simply refused to report the very ugly ugly behavior and background of both men.
They refused to report the sleaze.
Different truths? Ain’t no such thing. They’re either truths or untruths. And remember, when spoken about the “protected”, TRUTH is the new HATE SPEECH.
