President Donald Trump broke tradition by not attendingApril’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, but reporters at the event were treated to a rare appearance by both Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein which the New York Post described” like a Simon and Garfunkel reunion .” It seems like nearly every reporter working today hopes to be the next Woodward or Bernstein, which was attained obvious last week after President Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey( his one-man” Tuesday afternoon murder “) andincluded the word “tapes”( in quotation marks) in a follow-up tweet about his conversations with Comey.
Now, with the Washington Post reportingthat Trump revealed highly classified information to his Russian guests last week, it’s time to celebrate?
Trump-intel story has transgressed @washingtonpost‘s record for most concurrently viewed tale, exceeding Trump/ “Access Hollywood” scoop of 10 /8.

@GlennKesslerWP I hope you are kidding about applause.

Would the paper’s own fact-checker make up a story about applause?
@GlennKesslerWP I’d say applause is not the most appropriate reaction in this case.

@GlennKesslerWP I appreciate the hardwork getting important news out there but the applause seems kind of gross considering the gravity of the situation.

@GlennKesslerWP “Applause.” The sonofabitch is gonna get people killed and WAPO is excited about positions. Simply wonderful.

@GlennKesslerWP Due to the seriousness of the scoop, cheering because you broke a reader record is inappropriate. What is incorrect people ?!
