Bill Barr: Media Is On “Jihad” To Discredit Malaria Drug

Newsweek reports:

In an interview on Fox News, Attorney General Bill Barr told the anchor Laura Ingraham it was “disappointing” to see the media response to Trump who had been “statesmanlike” in working with governors and yet still had to deal with “snarky ‘gotcha’ questions from the White House media pool.”

He said that “the stridency of the partisan attacks on him has gotten higher and higher,” and said the “politicization of decisions like the hydroxychloroquine has been amazing to me.”

“As soon as he said something positive about it, the media has been on a jihad to discredit the drug, It’s quite strange,” Barr said.
