15. This article from WaPo was a bit more balanced

than others I've seen where Woodward was quoted as saying reporters need to stop being so smug.

To me this scandal is so much worse than Watergate so to read that Woodward wants to downplay Russiagate compared to Watergate is ludicrous.

In this article he says Trump will be around a long time and it worries me.

Legendary Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward spoke out against "smug" media on Wednesday, saying too many members of the media treat President Trump's White House tenure as a "try out."

The comments from half of the team that broke the Nixon Watergate scandal in 1973 came during a News Shapers interview with Axios' Mike Allen.

"I think there's so many people treating the Trump presidency as if it's a try out, as if it's provisional," Woodward said. "Odds are, he's probably going to be president for a full term, four years, maybe even more."
