Former President George W. Bush told NBC’s Matt Lauer that the media used to matter a lot more during an interview on NBC’s Today.
Lauer asked Bush about the enormous division that exists within the country right now and whether he believed President Trump’s claims that he wants to unite the country.
“I think you need to take the man at his word,” Bush told Lauer. “It’s hard to unify the country with the news media being all split up. When I was President, you mattered a lot more because there was like three of you.”
Lauer followed up by asking Bush about his time in office, the criticism that he received during his tenure, and whether he ever considered the media to be the enemy of the American people.
“I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy… Power can be very addictive,” Bush told Lauer.
