This Bears Repeating: Leslie Stahl: [redacted] said that the reason he maligns the press is “to discredit you all and demean you all so that when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.” 

2019-07-15

From the latest New Yorker, in an article about the flat-earth movement:

Recently, Lesley Stahl, of “60 Minutes,” revealed that, in an interview after the 2016 election, [redacted] told her that the reason he maligns the press is “to discredit you all and demean you all so that when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.”

PS: I changed my mind about not mentioning him at all after going through my drafts and finding all these things that I hadn’t published that were really important…

PPS: [redacted] is almost as good as “He who must not be named.”
