Dan Rather: Covering Trump like facing a ‘fertilizer spreader in a windstorm’

Veteran journalist Dan Rather on Sunday said it’s critical for the press to point out President Trump’s false statements to the public, no matter how difficult it can be to keep up.

“I think it’s absolutely imperative. Now more than ever is when the press needs to be a kind of truth squad for this and every other president. It’s perhaps more important with President Trump because there are more untruths to set the record straight,” Rather, a former CBS anchor, said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”

“I do think that most people get it,” he continued. “That most people understand that they’re facing on a daily basis from the White House and from the president himself, the rough equivalent of you’re facing a fertilizer spreader in a windstorm.”
