“The President has created across-the-board hostility to the media.”

From a December 2016 story in The Hill about President Barack Obama and the press:

Ann Compton of ABC News called Obama “the least transparent of the seven presidents I’ve covered.”

Veteran Washington correspondent Josh Meyer agreed, “In the Obama administration, there is across-the-board hostility to the media.”

David Sanger of The New York Times added, “This is the most closed, control freak administration I’ve ever covered.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper: “The Obama administration has used the Espionage Act to go after whistleblowers who leaked to journalists . . . more than all previous administrations combined.”

Leonard Downie of the Washington Post: “The administration’s war on leaks and other efforts to control information are the most aggressive I’ve seen since the Nixon administration.”
