The honeymoon between the mainstream media and presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is officially over.
According to a report Thursday by the Washington Examiner, its cross-town rival, the Washington Post, has launched a full-scale investigation into the GOP front-runner. The Post is owned by billionaire investor Jeff Bezos, who is a major contributor to Democratic Party causes.
The Examiner reports:
Post Associate Editor Bob Woodward revealed Wednesday that the Post has assigned 20 staffers to Trump. In addition the paper plans a book.
"There's a lot we don't know," he told the National Association of Realtors convention in Washington. "We have 20 people working on Trump, we're going to do a book, we're doing articles about every phase of his life," he added.
Woodward, who has interviewed Trump, said that he has begun looking into Trump's New York real estate deals. "The New York real estate world is more complex than the CIA," he said.
According to the report, Bezos has ordered the newsroom to dig into the potential nominees for both parties. Woodward exposed a predisposed bias when it comes to Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton:
He also said that the paper is trying to get to the "essence" of Hillary Rodham Clinton, but he dismissed suggestions that she used a personal email server to distribute classified information.
"I don't think anyone feels that there was intent on her part to distribute classified information in a way that was illegal or jeopardized security," he assured the crowd.
Woodward didn't put a limit on how many stories the Post may publish between now and the November election, but he suggested there would be many. He acknowledged the newsroom may not uncover every detail, but it will report on everything it finds.
