The great divide: The media war over Trump | Watch Video
Despite a brief moment of unity across party lines this week, after the mass shooting in which a Republican Congressman was critically wounded, the media wars surrounding coverage of President Donald Trump have been getting louder by the day.

Pat Buchanan will tell you it's been building for almost 50 years: "That sort of really began in earnest in November of 1969 when Nixon, after he gave his famous great 'Silent Majority' speech, was attacked by the networks immediately."

Senior Contributor Ted Koppel talks with Buchanan, and with Harvard professor Yochai Benkler, about the battle between presidents and the press, what news Americans are consuming, and the media war over hearts and minds.

HARTMAN:  Sportsmanlike conduct in Congress (Video)
When a shocking act of political violence occurred last week, Congress threw a curveball to those expecting politicians to pile on to the mudslinging.
