Author Michael Wolff bolstered President Trump’s effort to discredit the new book “Fire and Fury” on Friday when he acknowledged in a “Today” show interview that he had been willing to say whatever was “necessary” to gain access at the White House.

At A Glance: Michael Wolff’s book exposing some not-so-flattering details about the inner-workings of the Trump administration has captured headlines for several days.

As it turns out, Wolff’s book may have come about due to some less-than-noble tactics applied by the author. On the “Today” show, Wolff admitted that he may have acted sympathetic to the Trump administration in order to gain access to write his tell-all book.

This does not bode well for journalists and media outlets who are actively trying to show the public that journalism is a noble and factual profession.
