MEDIA: “I happen to know how dishonest the media is. I happen to know stories about me that should be good — or bad — you know, I don’t mind a bad story if it’s true. But I don’t like bad stories that — stories that should be a positive story when they make them totally negative. I understand the total dishonesty of the media better than anybody. And I let people know it. I mean, the media is a very, very dishonest arm, and we’ll see what happens. Not everybody. And I have to say that. I always preface it by saying, not everybody. But there’s tremendous dishonest — pure, outright dishonesty from the media.”
