Ben Stein: Media ‘Looking for a Scandal’ Every Day with Trump to Do to Him What They Did to Nixon


Saturday, former Nixon and Ford speechwriter, actor and author Ben Stein said on “CNN Newsroom” that mainstream media like CNN and The New York Times are “looking for a scandal” with President Donald Trump and they want to do to him like they did to former President Richard Nixon.

“Look, every day you pick up The New York Times, every day they’re slamming, slamming, slamming [Trump]. I’m a great fan of CNN; I watch it quite faithfully, every day CNN is slamming him, slamming him, slamming him. Every day, they’re looking for a scandal. They’re just turning the woods upside down looking for a scandal. They’re hoping, I think, to do to him what they did to Nixon a long time ago. And, you know, still haven’t found any real scandals,” Stein stated.

He continued, “With all due respect, I don’t blame him for being furious at them. And I think he’s got a lot of company. I’m out there giving speeches all around the country all the time, an awful lot of people are not great fans of the media, and they see the media as an unelected aristocracy … who are dumping all over the mainstream of America.”

  1. Its not going to happen you leasy lib/dems. YOur in for a wake-up call. I suggest you look at yourself in the mirror.

  2. Stein is right….The media is an unelected aristocracy that is dumping on America, that I why I no longer read the Times, or am I a fan of CNN….I Will no longer follow them until i hear of some professional, non opinionated journalism, with facts, carrying details on their supposed sources.

    I even avoid reading them both, and others on-line

  3. Exactly right, Ben. What is driving these media outlets really nuts is that they haven’t been able to intimidate Trump. Many politicians would have folded by now, but he shows no signs of being cowed.
