Appearing on Thursday’s NBC Today, nationally syndicated radio host and potential new White House press secretary Laura Ingraham hit back at co-host Matt Lauer for suggesting that the Trump administration would have “fence-mending” to do with the media after the President-Elect “spent the last year and a half basically calling members of the press and the media crooked, corrupt, dishonest.”

Ingraham pointed out: “I think the press has its own problems with credibility and building back credibility with the American people. Every poll, not conservative polls, show that there are a lot of folks out there who believe the media is really biased and really was in the tank for Hillary Clinton....that's the way most people view the press today. I think the press has a lot of work to do to build back its own credibility.”
