Reporter: Some Journalists ‘Wake Every Morning Looking for Silver Bullet to Kill Trump Monster’

David Martosko, U.S. Political Editor for the U.K. Daily Mail, was brutally honest in his assessment of fellow reporters covering President Donald Trump, saying in his appearance on the Fox News Channel program Hannity on Friday night that some journalists “are waking up every morning looking for the silver bullet that’s going to kill the Trump monster, there are journalists like that”

Martosko confirmed suspicions of a liberal media bias, saying, “If you think there is a liberal bias in political media, you really have no idea how right you are.”

Martosko, who covered the Trump and Clinton presidential campaigns, also said from his observations on the trail that nine out of ten reporters covering Trump couldn’t imagine themselves voting for Trump.


On Election Night when Trump won the presidency, Martosko said he witnessed several reporters in tears at the Trump victory headquarters.
