Critics Assail Journalist Bob Woodward For Withholding Trump's Consequential COVID-19 Comments

Investigative journalist Bob Woodward held 18 consequential interviews with President Trump that will be featured in his upcoming book. The content of these interviews has made front-page news, even though they were conducted seven months ago.

Critics say that Woodward failed the public in not releasing these newsworthy interviews until close to his book’s publication. Host Robin Young speaks to CNN’s Brian Stelter,  author of “ Hoax: Donald Trump, Fox News, and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth,” about the controversy.
