Bret Baier said it's hard to know without more context whether President Trump was serious in telling Lesley Stahl he demeans the media to discredit them.
Mollie Hemingway said the press was wrong to jump on Trump's criticism about a "phony source" who turned out to be a White House background briefer because the New York Times didn't accurately report his remarks.

Sara Fischer said the president "can't win" in the media's eyes because he's criticized for taunting Kim Jong-un, announcing a summit with Kim and canceling the summit with Kim.
Kat Timpf said the arrest of Harvey Weinstein does vindicate the media's reporting and that she was glad to see the "pervert" handcuffed.
