A Washington Post reporter suffered a Freudian slip on Sunday when he botched a quote and effectively admitted his newspaper is “at war” with the Trump administration.
After President Trump told a Michigan audience that the media “hate your guts,” Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter opined the moment was “a preview of the midterms.”

During the appearance on CNN, White House Reporter Josh Dawsey responded, “Obviously none of hates the American public’s guts or Donald Trump’s guts, I mean, our Executive Editor Marty Baron says, ‘We’re at war, not at work,’ I mean, ‘We’re not at war, we’re at work.’”
Dawsey said “it’s a lot to handle” to be called the “enemy of the American people” and disputed the notion.
“We don’t hate anybody’s guts,” he reiterated.
