On Friday, legendary news anchor Ted Koppel harshly criticized the media for his coverage of former President Donald Trump.
The former Nightline host joined Dan Abrams Live on NewsNation to discuss bias in the media, which Koppel expressed his displeasure about. Koppel explained that while he thinks there’s a lot of quality reporting these days, he’d like to see opinions on the Opinions page.
Host Dan Abrams, who is the founder of Mediate, asked Koppel how he perceives the current media landscape, reminding him of a comment he made in 2019, when Koppel said:
I’m terribly concerned that when you talk about the New York Times these days, when you talk about the Washington Post these days, you weren’t talking about the New York Times of 50 years ago. We are not talking about the Washington Post of 50 years ago. Were talking about organizations that I believe have actually decided as organizations that Donald J. Trump is bad for the United States.
Abrams asked: Do you still have that feeling, and if so, how do you think it has impacted media coverage of Donald Trump in recent years?
Koppel said he thought the Times and the Post did “absolutely brilliant journalism.” But he also said the two newspapers, and others, would better serve their readers to focus on the facts.
I think the opinion belongs on the opinion page. That’s why they call it the editorial section. That’s where the opinion pieces are, the columns, that’s where the editorials are, and that’s where he belongs. I don’t like to see opinion expressed on the front page of a major newspaper. Having said that, let me say it again, I think the Times, the Post, the Wall Street Journal make some of the best newspapers I’ve seen in the last 50 years. I just wish they didn’t fall into that category… It bothers me when I see them losing some of the criteria that have always kept a wall between opinion and media coverage.
Abrams asked, And as you know, the answer to that from some would be that Donald Trump is different. That it should be covered differently by the media than others. What do you think ?
Koppel felt that all public figures should be treated equally by the media:
Well, I think if you start making these distinctions, it’s very hard to know where you stop making the distinction. Do you feel that about anyone else in politics? Are we going to start picking up our morning paper to see who’s in and who’s out, in terms of media coverage? Again, there is a place for this in the editorial section. I don’t like that on the front page.
